About

Bio

Started Ophthalmology practice in my home town, which I was not well received. After becoming one of the most successful practices in the community, and retiring doctor shared this with me. You were born on the wrong side of the tracks, we were raised at the Columbus County Club, plays gold, tennis, and lay out by the pool. I got the impression that since they had better "genes" than me, I must be a crook since I had out performed them. My secret was simple, I found that when I honor God, that He honors me. While they were at the country club, I was in church. I believe I have done as many refractive cases as anyone in America, 150,000 eyes. I am particular good at solving problems. I love my work and thank God for giving me this opportunity. D. Stephen Hollis, MD
