Stacy Wood, M.D. – Retired
Dallas cataract surgeon, Dr. Stacy Wood has retired.
A letter to his patients:
My 27 years in private practice have flown by. Medical problems have forced me to come to a difficult decision, that is, to retire from ophthalmology. I will miss my beloved patients, many of whom have written me with their concerns and well wishes. I’m deeply touched by these heartfelt sentiments.
My fantastic staff at the Dallas and Gun Barrel City offices will also be greatly missed. I would not have been an effective physician and surgeon without their help and support. I’m so fortunate to have worked hand in hand with these great people.
Recently, Dallas Eye Care has merged with Arlington-based KE Eye Centers of Texas (KEEC) to become KE Dallas Eye Care. KEEC is a progressive group that will thrive in our medical environment and will take great care of our community of patients.
I am also proud that as the Medical Director of the practice, I have recruited and trained great physicians who will provide the same level of care you have come to expect from me.
As I retire, know you are in good hands with surgeons Drs. Stephens, Chavala and Hines and optometrists Drs. Haarde, James and Starchville. I am comforted by that and wish you the very best as our practice continues to serve your eye care needs.
