It’s no secret that the entire team at Vision Eye Group is passionate about helping our patients have the best vision possible. Passion for our work seeps into every conversation, decision, and action we take here at the practice. In May, we celebrated one of our incredible doctors on his well-earned retirement – Dr. James Suit. He has served the Middle Georgia community for over 30 years with his expertise, knowledge, and kindness. Allow us to celebrate the work and legacy of Dr. James Suit:
Your Vision Eye Group Doctor: James Suit, M.D.
Dr. Suit has spent over three decades in the Middle Georgia area, but he’s not a native to Georgia. He was born in Alabama, and he moved to Georgia in the 1970’s to pursue his M.D. from the Medical College of Georgia. Before joining Vision Eye Group, completed a medical internship at the U.S. Air Force Medical Center at Keesler Air Force Base in Mississippi, finished his residency at Emory University in Atlanta, and served six years in the U.S. Air Force. He uses his knowledge and talents to teach others about ophthalmology at Emory University School of Medicine and Mercer University School of Medicine. He holds several memberships in prestigious Associations, such as:
- The American Academy of Ophthalmology
- The American Medical Association
- The Bibb County Medical Association
- The Georgia Society of Ophthalmology
- The Medical Association of Georgia
More than his impressive memberships, roles, and accomplishments, he is passionate about helping people by volunteering with The Lion’s Club. The Club’s global causes is summed up beautifully:
“By uniting our organization’s service around five global areas – diabetes, vision, hunger, the environment, and childhood cancer – we’re making a greater impact, overcoming the challenges we see in our communities around the world.”
Dr. Suit gladly volunteers his time and knowledge with this impactful organization, helping those who are experiencing vision problems. 13WMAZ spotlighted Dr. Suit and his quest to help people through the Club in this Straight from the Heart segment. Although leaving Georgia, he will continue his volunteer work with The Lion’s Club in Texas.
