There’s nothing nondescript about the ways
these doctors use gray in their practices.
Grays are the new neutral
and come in many variations.
Natalie Bissoon, OD, of
Richmond Hill, New York,
purchased a practice that had
been in town for nearly 100
years. The space had not been
updated in 40 years, so Dr.
Bissoon spent her weekends in
tiling stores, trying to imagine
the neutral yet comfortable
look she wanted. The purposefully
modern look is quite a
departure, but as patients have
gotten to know her in the past
few years, they know she’s
carrying on the legacy of great
service. Click here to read her full story.
Shannon Avena, OD, is slowly buying into
ownership at Niles Vision Clinic in Niles,
Michigan. As part of taking on additional responsibilities,
she oversaw the renovation
of the space that looked a little dated after
10 years. The green walls were repainted a
striking gray that serves as a neutral background
for artwork and other displays. Click here to read her full story.
Maegan Sauer, OD, of Jeffersonville,
New York, used decor
that reflected this farming
community where she returned
to practice. Her contractor
father helped her revamp an
empty space to bring eye care
services into town. Click here to read her full story.
Jennifer E. Davis, OD, of Waynesboro, Virginia,
had been imagining the look of her practice
long before she purchased an existing one
and moved it into a new building about two
miles away. Big windows and natural light
were part of the dramatic look she created. Click here to read her full story.
Courtney Dryer, OD, of
Charlotte, North Carolina,
was inspired by designs
in stores such as Anthropologie
as well as what she had
seen worked well in other
practices that she had visited.
Then she added her
own whimsical, artistic
flair to make her Autarchic
Spec Shop a place where
patients wanted to spend
time. Display areas, decor
and lighting are arranged
as stop-and-look awhile
spots. Click here to read her full story. [Editor's note: This story with Dr. Dryer was completed when her practice operated under a different name.]
