ELBURN – It has always been a dream of Dr. Michele Montalbano-Miteff’s to provide health care to the community with ever-changing technology and services. She will finally be able to do that by expanding her office space with a move to Geneva.
“We simply outgrew the confines of our current space,” she said. “In order for us to grow and offer our patients the new technology and equipment that is now available, we needed more space.”
It took Montalbano-Miteff a long time to find just the perfect space, somewhere still accessible and convenient to her current patients. The move will happen in January; she’s hoping for a launch date of Jan. 22. The office will only be closed for five business days to allow for the move and relocation. The business will reopen under a new name, Valley Vision Center.
“Because we are located in the Fox Valley region, it was a natural name change which keeps my options open if I decide to ever open any additional locations in the future,” Montalbano-Miteff said.
The new location will be at 2197 Blackberry Drive, Geneva. The phone number will remain the same, 630-365-2020. She hopes to eventually expand the hours to be open six days a week for patient care time.
The business is an eye and vision care center treating and managing all types of eye issues by offering a variety of services, including exams, contact lenses, glasses, glaucoma testing, foreign bodies, infections and pre- and post-operative care.
“My specialty is dry eye disease. Thirty-three million people have this complex disease in our country," Montalbano-Miteff said. “I hope to be able to treat more patients and help them manage this disease even better with the new technology, which I will now have the space to provide.”
Montalbano-Miteff’s immediate intentions in the new space are to get new state of the art equipment that is “unbelievable and amazing” and bring in associates that really shine in the areas that she would like to grow, such as pediatrics, contact lenses and corneal disease.
“I’m excited to move into the Geneva area,” Montalbano-Miteff said. “It’s a dynamic community always evolving and growing. The city has so much to offer the community, and I know we will as well.”
After the move, the current website will change as well. Valley Vision Center will be able to be reached after January at valleyvisionsource.com. For more information or to make an appointment with Montalbano-Miteff, call 630-365-2020, or for now visit the website at elburneyecare.com.
