Meet Our Staff
Dr. Mike Montenare
Dr. Montenare is a graduate of the State University of New York, State College of Optometry, and of our accredited Residency. His background prior to entering Optometry was in the field of education. Both his parents were educators. After obtaining his Master's Degree in Teaching, Dr. Montenare taught high school for three years, giving him unique insights into vision and learning.
Our vision therapy staff and front desk team are integral to our success in practice.
They are individually chosen with an eye toward empathy for patients and upbeat personality. Our vision therapists are guided toward board certification, a process attained through the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD). We hold team meetings with the entire staff every morning prior to beginning work with patients so that we can keep one another up to date about your care. Once weekly the therapy staff and doctors get together in a roundtable session for education, and to review the progress of our patients.
