Carthage, TN, 10/27/22 – Optometric Physicians of Middle Tennessee have announced that Michael Durocher, O.D., will be joining their practice in Carthage, TN. The addition of Dr. Durocher to the newer Carthage location will help OPMT Vision Centers continue to reach even more patients and provide quality care in a modern, technologically advanced facility.
“I am proud and excited to have my son, Dr. Michael Durocher, join us in Carthage,” said Richard Durocher, O.D., the owner of OPMT Vision Centers. “He is a caring doctor and takes his responsibilities towards patients seriously to make a difference in their lives. He always considers where the eyes fit into full-body health, and I know his patients will appreciate his ability to provide compassionate, comprehensive care.”
Dr. Michael Durocher completed his B.S. in nursing at Cumberland University in Lebanon, before earning his Doctor of Optometry at the University of Pikeville Kentucky College of Optometry. His work as a nurse prior to entering the optometric field gives him special insight and consideration into the complete wellness of his patients — as well as the importance of clear communication in his caregiving.
“I am honored to follow my father in his mission of providing world-class eye care to our Tennessee communities,” said Dr. Michael Durocher. “I have long found the eyes to be the most interesting organ, and there is nothing I find more fulfilling than helping people see better every day. At OPMT Vision Centers, we are a family that loves working together to provide the best care possible, and I cannot wait to continue serving our neighbors with the care they deserve.”
Dr. Michael Durocher will be at OPMT’s Carthage practice one day a week, with plans to expand his schedule going forward. He is currently taking appointments.
