Doctor Spotlight: Dr. Melanie Hill

Thursday, November 9th, 2017 
   

This week we are spotlighting Dr. Melanie Hill.  Dr. Hill works in our Madison, Florida, office and has been a wonderful addition to our South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners family.  Dr. Hill graduated from the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tennessee, where she met her husband, Cory.  After graduation, they moved together to Cory’s native Florida and have been there since 2000.  She and her husband have two children, Reagan and Cooper, who keep Dr. Hill busy even when not at work.

When asked what she loves most about optometry, Dr. Hill says, “I think it’s an honor to be able to protect one of the biggest blessings God gave us – sight.”  Back in high school, Dr. Hill was assigned a research paper and she happened to write hers on optometry – the more she learned about the field, the more interested she became.  And the rest – as they say – is history.  Watch the video here to see Dr. Hill in action and hear her story in her own words.

Dr. Hill and her family are very active at Faith Presbyterian Church in Tallahassee.  She is an Elder at their church and the co-Moderator of the Children and Families Committee as well as a Sunday school teacher.

South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners has two board-certified ophthalmologists and five board-certified optometrists.  Our physicians are trained in scheduled eye exams as well as in the diagnosis and treatment of dry eye syndrome, glaucoma, and many other optical issues.  We also perform iLASIK surgery, laser-assisted cataract surgery and many other vision procedures.  With offices in Valdosta, Tifton, Douglas, Moultrie and Madison, Florida, there is certain to be a location convenient to you for all of your optometry needs.  Call us today to schedule an appointment.

IMG_4973 revisedWe are continuing our doctor spotlight with Dr. Melanie Hill.  Dr. Hill works in our Madison, Florida, office and has been a great addition to the South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners team.  Dr. Hill graduated from the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tennessee, where she met her husband, Cory.  They graduated together, and moved together to Cory’s native Florida in 2000.  They have now been married for 17 years.

Dr. Hill got her undergraduate degree at the University of Missouri and is a huge sports fan…she loves her Mizzou Tigers!  She also is an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan – as she says, “I take my baseball very seriously.”  She and her husband have two children, Reagan (11) and Cooper (6).  Dr. Hill says most of her free time is spent chasing her kids and being a “typical taxi mom” – taking their kids to ballet and baseball and back again.  The Hills also love to snow ski (they try to take a trip once a year) as well as playing their pool and grilling out.
Dr. Hill and her family are very active at Faith Presbyterian Church in Tallahassee.  She is an Elder at their church and the co-Moderator of the Children and Families Committee as well as a Sunday school teacher.
When reflecting on her adopted hometown of Madison and her team at South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners, Dr. Hill says, “I grew up in a small town, and in many ways, Madison reminds me of home.  I love that in a small town I am able to take care of generations of families.  Joining SGEP has been a huge blessing.  We have so many more resources available to us now.  Having Dr. Petermann come into the Madison office monthly saves people rom having to travel so far.”  Dr. Hill also added that “there is just a higher level of care that I am so glad can be given to the people in Madison county.”
We are proud to have you on our team, Dr. Hill.  You have added so much to our practice.
