Welcome back Laurel Quinn, MD!

Optometrists Scott Pastryk and Stephanie LaLiberte with Ophthalmologist Laurel Quinn.

After several months of being out for a medical issue, Ophthalmologist Laurel Quinn, MD, has returned to the Winona Health Eye Care Center.

“Optometrists Scott Pastryk and Stephanie LaLiberte, the Eye Care Center team and the entire Winona Health family are excited to welcome back Dr. Quinn. “We have all missed her, and so have her patients,” said Sara Gabrick, vice president of Surgical and Specialty Services at Winona Health. “It’s great to have her back!”

Friends and community members held a 5K run/walk benefit for Dr. Quinn and her family in June after her third bout of acute myeloid leukemia. Dr. Quinn and her husband, Jason, have six children.

“My family and I have so appreciated the support of this community,” said Dr. Quinn, “I’m happy to get back to the healthy work of taking care of our eyes!”

Optometrist Stephanie LaLiberte (pronounced La Liberty), said she became interested in optometry after going on mission trips to Lima, Peru with her Dad who is an optometrist.  She said, “What caught my interest was observing people put on a pair of glasses and actually seeing for the first time. It was life-changing.” She discovered a special interest in pediatric optometry while at a rotation with Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City.

Dr. LaLiberte joins Ophthalmologist Laurel Quinn and Optometrist Scott Pastryk in the Winona Health Eye Care Center and provides primary eye care, as well as diagnoses and treatment of eye diseases.

“The first time I heard about Winona Health was from two of my patients while I was doing rotations at the VA. They said it was a great place and encouraged me to check it out,” said Dr. LaLiberte. “I chose Winona Health because everyone I’ve talked to who works here absolutely loves it. I’ve always wanted to work in a healthcare setting where there is a sense of community and you can develop lasting relationships.”

Dr. LaLiberte received her Doctorate of Optometry from Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago, IL. She is certified by the National Board of Examiners in Optometry and the Minnesota State Board of Optometry.

In her free time, Dr. LaLiberte enjoys working out, a wide variety of sports and outdoor activities.
