Colvard-Kandavel eye center is pleased and honored to welcome the newest addition to our staff, Dr. Stephen M. Rabinowitz.

Dr. Rabinowitz graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Summa Cum Laude from the University of Pennsylvania.  He graduated from New York University School of Medicine with honors and was elected to the national medical honor society, Alpha Omega Alpha. After completing his ophthalmology residency at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York, Dr. Rabinowitz went on to obtain advanced fellowship training at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami. As chief resident during his Lenox Hill years he also worked in the Caribbean where he provided free eye care and surgery to poor and underserved patients on St. Vincent Island.

Dr. Rabinowitz has been a much loved and highly respected ophthalmologist, practicing with the Ophthalmic Surgeons of Greater Bridgeport in Fairfield, Connecticut for the past 32 years. He made a decision to move to Southern California to be near his two children and his first grandchild last year. We are all proud and honored that Dr. Rabinowitz has chosen the Colvard Kandavel Eye Center to continue his illustrious career.
