In part 1 of our series “Doctors: A Closer Look” we introduced you to the “Adventures of Dr. Walker.” We do this because we know the importance of patients feeling comfortable with their doctors. Who likes hanging out with strangers? Our doctors are pretty fascinating men and women when you take a closer look. They are amazing doctors, but they are also so much more. With that in mind, here is part 2 of our series “Doctors: A Closer Look” with the hopes of helping you see that doctors…they’re just like us!

Why Dr. Keenan Works For VisionFirst
There are a lot of reasons Dr. Keenan loves his job but his favorite thing about working at VisionFirst is he gets to practice in a well run contemporary, positive, and patient-oriented work environment. On top of that, he simply just loves his job for the hugs he gets from his patients for a job well done.
Dr. Keenan has a passion for this industry and one thing he is excited about is the advancements in glaucoma treatment. That’s not surprising considering his own personal motto is to learn something new everyday. Definitely something to live by. True to his nature as a compassionate and personable person, he knows these kinds of medical advancements are important because they will be life-changing and life-enhancing for so many people.
Life Outside Of Work
If Dr. Keenan could pick one spot for vacation to get a little rest and relaxation it would be at the lake. He even has a cabin. His favorite hobby is reading, so it’s easy to picture him diving into a good book at his cabin by the lake or down at the water.
