The staff and physicians at Penn Highlands Ophthalmology are pleased to announce the addition of board certified ophthalmologist and vitreo-retinal specialist Marc F. G. Estafanous, MD.

Comprehensive vitreo-retinal care is now available in DuBois through the services of Dr. Estafanous and the additional eye surgeons in the Penn Highlands Healthcare system.

“It’s exciting to be back in this region seeing patients,” Estafanous said. “I believe that I can help fill a need for vitreo-retinal care and work very well with the ophthalmology staff at Penn Highlands.”

Estafanous graduated with honors with a degree in Mathematics and Psychology from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. He attended medical school at Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C., and completed his residency training in ophthalmology at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation. He completed his fellowship subspecialty training in vitreo-retinal disorders at the Jules Stein Eye Institute in Los Angeles, California.
