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!”

We’ve all heard “The eyes are the window to the soul.” But your eyes are so much more than that! There are many things you can do to protect your sight and your eye health.

“We are interested in helping people see as clearly as possible for as long as possible,” said Dr. LaLiberte. “Don’t take your vision for granted. What you don’t know could hurt you. With early detection of eye disease, we usually can take steps to slow the progression and save your vision.”

Learn about common and less common eye issues, what’s normal, what to be on the lookout for and when to “GET EM CHECKED.” This program will help you protect one of your most important assets – your vision. Keep your eyes comfortable and healthy with helpful information from Dr. LaLiberte, Winona Health’s newest eye care expert. Bring your questions!
