Dr. Brendan Girschek Appointed as an Examiner for the American Board of Ophthalmology.
Waterloo, Iowa – Cedar Valley Eye Care is pleased to announce that Dr. Brendan Girschek has been appointed to be an examiner for the American Board of Ophthalmology.
Dr. Girschek is a board-certified, fellowship-trained retina specialist who practices in the Division of Retina Surgery in Cedar Valley Eye Care and whose practice focuses specifically on treating diseases affecting the retina and the vitreous body of the eye, also known as “vitreoretinal diseases.” His expertise and dedication to his patients are reflected in his examiner nomination, which is peer-reviewed and is based upon a rigorous set of standards.
“I am very honored to be appointed to be an American Board of Ophthalmology examiner,” says Dr. Girschek.
As America’s oldest medical specialist certification board and one of less than 25 such boards acknowledged by both the American Medical Association and the American Board of Medical Specialties, the American Board of Ophthalmology is an independent association that utilizes examiners in the critical process of board-certifying qualifying ophthalmologists. Examiners assist with the oral examinations administered to ophthalmologists seeking board certification and help create the examination content, including developing the written examination. By certifying the level of expertise for ophthalmologists, the American Board of Ophthalmology helps reassure patients that they will receive the highest standard of eye care. Dr. Girschek’s insight and expertise will be tremendous assets to his fellow examiners, the board and his field.
