To Whom It May Concern,

I am a primary care optometrist serving the greater Boston area with five and half

years experience in private practice and teaching. I strive to provide the best eye care in the

most efficient and effective manner, because I understand that peoples time are both short

and valuable.

I have a strong background in providing eye exams for non-English speaking

communities, from being trained in Dorchester Community Health Care Center and now

seeing patients at Comfort Vision, where the majority of patients speak either Mandarin or

Cantonese only. Working with such a challenging demographics have strengthen both my

effectiveness and efficiency in providing the best vision care possible.

Furthermore, I have also been participating in the pediatric vision-screening program

affiliated with the New England College of Optometry where I teach first year optometry

students as well as provide vision screenings on about 20-30 students per session. This

opportunity has not only given me experience in adapting my eye exams outside a typical

exam room setting as well as working in a fast pace high volume setting.

I continue to be committed to providing the best vision care possible as well as

helping whatever practice I am with be grow and be successful. Please find enclosed my

resume further entailing my work experiences and clinical training.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincere Regards

Phuong Nguyen, OD
