Three years ago, Optometrist Dr. Stephanie Phyo had a vision for Camarena Health’s optometry program. After seven years of private practice in the Bay Area, Dr. Phyo came to Madera – and Camarena Health – because she was looking for a change. But Dr. Phyo was not content to rest on her laurels, and she soon found herself shaping Camarena Health’s fledgling optometry program.
“I was part of launching the program, building it up, and providing the initial feedback,” says Dr. Phyo. “And everyone was receptive to that feedback.”
Dr. Phyo says she has grown a lot since starting at Camarena Health – not just as a provider, but as a citizen of Madera. As a former big city girl, she has come to appreciate Madera’s community-centric atmosphere.
“Everything about Madera feels a little bit more personal,” says Dr. Phyo. “Here, you see that backbone where people are putting in the effort to work and build something. I think that’s a big difference, and it’s a good thing.”
