Bala Eye Care

Our Farewell Letter from Dr. Marvin Greenbaum:

It is with great anticipation and some sadness that I am writing to tell you that I will be retiring from medicine at the end of June. 

Having practiced ophthalmology for over 40 years, it’s now time for me to pursue other interests and endeavors. I have enjoyed taking care of you as patients, but just as much, it has been my pleasure to hear about your work, hobbies, families, travels, books that you’ve read, and even some politics. You have all influenced my life and I feel fortunate that I’ve had the opportunity to get to know you. 

Bala Eye Care will remain strong under the leadership of Drs. Ralph DiGiovanni and Keith Mathers. I am privileged to have had them as partners. I have enjoyed our collaboration, and have great admiration for their diagnostic abilities and surgical skills. I am confident that our practice will remain one of the most respected in the Philadelphia ophthalmic community. 

Our committed, hard-working, compassionate, smiling, and always patient staff has been the backbone of our practice and they will continue to serve your every need. I will miss them, but they will be there for you. 

I will remain in the Bala Cynwyd community (with a bit of time on Cape Cod) and look forward to seeing many of you “out on the street” and in some restaurants (when that is possible again).Please, feel free to stop and say hello. 

So, many thanks for trusting me as your physician for so many years. Stay safe, be well. 

Fondly, 

Marvin Greenbaum, MD

She earned her Optometry degree from New England College of Optometry in Boston, with clinical externships throughout the New England area.
