We are delighted that Stephen M. Rabinowitz, M.D. has joined us in the practice of ophthalmology. A recent California transplant after thirty years of busy and successful clinical ophthalmology practice in Connecticut, Dr. Rabinowitz brings with him a wealth of experience and ophthalmic expertise as well as his genuine warmth and caring demeanor. He practices the full gamut of state of the art ophthalmology from caring for patients with cataract, glaucoma, diabetes, and other ophthalmic conditions to providing full comprehensive eye care.
After growing up in suburban New York, Dr. Rabinowitz graduated Summa Cum Laude with a bachelors degree from the University of Pennsylvania where he was honored with election to the Phi Beta Kappa society. He graduated medical school from New York University with honors as a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. After his ophthalmology residency at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York, Dr. Rabinowitz went on to advanced fellowship training at the prestigious Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami. As chief resident during his Lenox Hill years he also traveled to the Caribbean nation of St. Vincent where he provided free eye care and surgery to those in need. Dr. Rabinowitz’s outstanding clinical skills and his upbeat and pleasant way with his patients has earned him the honor of being selected for the prestigious Castle Connolly top doctor award for the past 10 years.
An avid baseball fan, Dr. Rabinowitz also enjoys movies, golf, long walks with his wife Janice, and spending quality time with his family. He has coached youth soccer and baseball over many years and has served as a commissioner in Little League Baseball back east. Dr. Rabinowitz and his wife Janice are truly thrilled to have come to California! They have moved here be close to their two grown kids and their spouses as well as their first delightful grandchild.
