SOUTHLAKE, TX – December 30, 2021 – Today, Retina Consultants of America (“RCA”), a comprehensive physician management services organization, announces the addition of Brown Retina Institute (“BRI”), a premier practice in the San Antonio metropolitan area. With the addition of BRI, RCA adds an additional key partner that will expand Retina Consultants of Texas’ (“RCTX”) San Antonio presence and further enhance patient care through collaboration with Dr. Mein and his partners who currently serve across the Alamo city.
Dr. Jeremiah Brown, Jr., a board-certified ophthalmologist, founded BRI in 2010 and currently serves as a Clinical Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio and as President of the San Antonio Society of Ophthalmology. After serving in the United States Army as a vitreoretinal surgeon and earning the Army Meritorious Service Medal, Dr. Brown has gained more than 10 years of practice experience in vitreoretinal surgery.
“The Brown Retina Institute delivers state-of-the-art retina care to the San Antonio and Schertz metropolitan area,” said Dr. Jeremiah Brown. “We are passionate about participating in research to help develop new therapies for our patients by providing the best retinal care in a compassionate environment.”
“By joining forces with Retina Consultants of America, we will have the opportunity to offer our patients greater opportunities to participate in trials to develop better treatments for blinding eye diseases. RCA also has the funding to ensure that our patients have access to the latest, most effective technology and diagnostic equipment. We are proud to be associated with this outstanding group of retina physicians and surgeons.”
Dr. Brown provides a variety of patient services, including treatment for macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, retinal laser surgery, and retinal detachment repair. With BRI’s two locations spanning from San Antonio to Schertz, RCA physicians will now provide patient care at 10 locations across the region.
“Increasing the collaboration between Retina Consultants of Texas and internationally known retina surgeon Dr. Jeremiah Brown will be a tremendous advance for both patient care and for retina clinical research in central Texas,” said Dr. David Brown of RCTX. “The combined RCTX research centers continue to expand as the largest retina research group in North America.”
“We are focused on developing novel therapies for the most common causes of irreversible blindness in the United States, including age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other medical disorders of the retina.”
RCA includes practices in California, Colorado, Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Washington, and the addition of BRI furthers RCA’s goal of providing the highest quality retinal care to patients across the United States.
