Seen any flamingos?

No, it’s not a new symptom of a retina issue.  It is a recognition of a staff member for that extra effort to make a better experience for other staff, patients and physicians.  Prior recipients included Sara and Katherine (who you see at our front desk in locations others than Jacksonville) for their contributions to our Mardi Gras Day.  Staff enjoyed red beans and rice, gumbo and of course King cake!

Our latest ‘flamingo’ is Sabrina who commands the front desk in our Jacksonville office, as well as in Wilmington when that office is closed.   Thanks to Sabrina for brightening that space with her eye for marking the seasons and occasions.

We will miss you…


Cindy has been a fixture in our Jacksonville office for several years. She is a smiling face and offers a recognizable laugh for physicians and patients alike. Cindy is retiring this month and while we wish her many happy carefree years ahead, she will be missed by everyone who comes through our office.

Cindy, thank you for the care you have shown every patient and for your dedication to your work and to Retina of Coastal Carolina. She is all about ‘Team’ and leaves a legacy that will be hard to match.

Employee of the Quarter


Our most recent employee of the quarter is Noelle, our Executive Assistant. Noelle joined our practice 18 months ago.  She is a jack (or jill) of many trades.  Noelle has become that smiling face to go to for other staff from arranging meetings with other practices to helping address project needs in the office.  That might be purging charts, moving boxes of files, unclogging toilets, repairing crates used to transport items between locations or running errands.   That is in addition to her more routine report preparation and data entry duties.  Thank you Noelle for what you do and for your positive demeanor and contribution to the ROCC team!
