The evolution of the Geneva Eye Clinic from two independent practitioners to a multi physician practice is a testament to the clinic’s mission to providing the highest standard of care.
Francis Dunn, Jr., M.D., and Ronald Simone, M.D., opened their private practices in 1969 and 1973 respectively. The two physicians serviced the Geneva community independently and over the years as each practice grew, so did their reputation for quality care throughout the Fox Valley community.
In 1989, Norbert Becker, M.D., joined practice with Dr. Simone and they continued their mission in a small building on South Street in Geneva along with a satellite office in Batavia. While in 1993, Kevin King, M.D., joined practice with Dr. Dunn.
In the early 1990s, both Drs. Simone and Dunn moved their respective offices to the Delnor campus 302 Medical Building. Both practices continued to flourish and a deep respect and friendship ensued. In 1996, Drs. Dunn and Simone combined their expertise and love of their profession to create the Geneva Eye Clinic. Dr. Dunn retired from medical practice in 2001
In the years that followed, the Geneva Eye Clinic has expanded their level of care and expertise by adding the following sub-specialists:
- 2000 – Patricia A. Steiner, O.D, a contact lens and low vision specialist
- 2001 – Anjali S. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., a glaucoma specialist
- 2010 – Katherine Z. Brito, M.D., a pediatric ophthalmologist
In 2010, Geneva Eye Clinic moved to their new location in the former Kane County Chronicle building at 1000 Randall Road, Suite 100, Geneva. This 20,000 square-foot building has been renovated into a state-of-the-art, comprehensive vision center; serving as a cornerstone of eye care in the community.
