SightMD Announces Acquisition of Park Avenue Eye Institute and Robert R. Ditkoff, M.D.

SightMD (or the “Company”), a leading multi-specialty ophthalmology platform and a portfolio company of Chicago Pacific Founders, today announced a strategic partnership with Robert R. Ditkoff, M.D., P.C., d/b/a Park Avenue Eye Institute, a Manhattan-based ophthalmology practice. Park Avenue Eye Institute represents SightMD’s second office in Manhattan, with its leading provider, Dr. Ditkoff, bringing over 30 years of ophthalmic experience to SightMD’s growing team of over 70 providers and 33 convenient locations spanning Westchester County through New York City and Long Island.

Dr. Ditkoff is a native New Yorker who has spent the entirety of his medical career providing ophthalmic and refractive services through Park Avenue Eye Institute on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. He attended medical school at Boston University in the esteemed six-year medical program and trained at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. Today, Dr. Ditkoff is affiliated with Mount Sinai Hospital, The Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital and Lenox Hill Hospital. Dr. Ditkoff is an assistant clinical professor at the Mount Sinai Icahn School of Medicine.

“My partners and I are excited to welcome Dr. Ditkoff to the SightMD family,” said Jeffrey Martin, MD, a Co-Founder and President of SightMD. “Dr. Ditkoff’s commitment to clinical excellence and improving the lives of his patients make him a seamless fit with our practice and providers. We look forward to helping Dr. Ditkoff grow his practice, and to expanding SightMD’s presence in Manhattan.”

Dr. Ditkoff added, “SightMD’s physician-led, patient-centric culture and history of serving New York were paramount in determining that SightMD was the right choice for me, my staff and, most importantly, my patients. I found the SightMD team to be transparent and collaborative throughout the transaction process, and could not be more thrilled to be partnering with such a stellar organization.”

Dr. Ditkoff will maintain his existing schedule pursuant to this partnership. SightMD’s strategic partnership with Dr. Ditkoff represents the eighth practice to join the Company since it partnered with Chicago Pacific Founders in September 2018.
