BEENE’S COMPASSION: AN EYE-OPENER FOR PATIENTS
That’s why he and other optometrists at the College of Optometry Center for Sight Enhancement are thrilled to have Nicole D. Beene on the front line greeting patients – who often arrive disconcerted by recent vision loss – with “compassion” and “empathy.”
UH agrees, giving the optometric technician a Staff Excellence Award.
“She goes out of her way to help our older patients who do not understand our new healthcare system,” wrote one doctor in support of her nomination.
“I really love my job and appreciate that people thought I deserved to be nominated,” Beene said.
Award recipients receive a certificate and a $1,000 check.
