Robin Reese has played an integral role in the development of the optical dispensary, experiencing the metamorphosis of the optical industry here for over twenty years. She regularly attends International Vision Expo in Manhattan, educating herself on the latest fashion trends with regard to frame design. She takes classes to keep abreast of the ever-changing spectacle lens industry, learning about new anti-reflective coatings, photochromatic lenses and technological innovations in progressive multifocal design.
Robin’s creativity has given the dispensary the reputation of an optical boutique that rivals those usually found in larger cities. Robin has a wonderful sense of fashion and color. Her knowledge of lens materials and proper frame adjustment all combine to offer our clients eyewear that is both functional and fashionable. Patient satisfaction is her highest priority. You’ll immediately recognize Robin in the office-her eyewear coordinates beautifully with the outfit she is wearing. Be sure to ask her about the La Loop that also compliments her style.
Michelle Ross has found her niche in the optical dispensary. Assisting both Robin and Carl, she has become adept at eyeglass frame selection, taking proper measurements, and frame adjustments.
Michelle has successfully completed several courses at the International Vision Expo held in New York City in March 2015. In the “Optical Boot Camp Workshop” she learned strategies on choosing properly-fitting and stylish eyeglass frames, finding the best-suited lens types and adjusting and repairing frames. In the “Progressive Lens Workshop” she acquired skills to relay information to the patient concerning the different aspects of progressive lenses.
Michelle has a kind and welcoming personality and looks forward to helping our patients with their optical needs.
Carl Boscia has found his niche in the Optical Laboratory. Coming from a technical background, he has developed a talent for eyeglass repair, as well as expert on-site tinting of lenses. Carl oversees the computerized Santinelli Spectacle Lens Edger, allowing us to provide almost immediate optical service to our patients. He has mastered sophisticated spectacle lens mountings to accompany the latest in eyewear design. Along with Robin and Claudia, Carl provides efficient and friendly optical service to our patients.
Michelle (Shelly) Bobyak has been with Dr. Boscia for over twenty years. She exemplifies Dr. Boscia’s commitment to professionalism and service to our patients. Shelly knows many of our patients, having been our full time receptionist for years. Now, as a busy mother of two boys, she enjoys the title of “special projects coordinator.” This new web site design is one result of her diligent efforts.
Our office is staffed by very professional, courteous people. You will be greeted at the front desk by Tracy Ruth, our multi-tasking receptionist. Tracy schedules and confirms your appointments as well as verifies insurance coverage. She has a high energy level which allows her to accomplish all these tasks and still offer a smile for all our patients.
