When GraceMed completed our new Capitol Family Clinic last year, it was clear there was built-in room for growth. Some of those empty exam rooms were earmarked for eye care, and we’re pleased to announce that the first optometrist to see patients in them has now arrived in Topeka.
Dr. Mark Judd is returning to familiar territory in Topeka. Dr. Judd’s wife has family in the area, so they should feel right at home from the start. The Judds have two daughters and six grandchildren.
Originally from Phillipsburg in north central Kansas, Dr. Judd began his career as a computer programmer and analyst. After graduating from Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma with a doctorate in optometry, he went to work running a Grene Vision Group clinic in Augusta, Kansas, just to the east of Wichita. His country roots then called him out west to take over a practice in Great Bend that he operated for the next 15 years.
“I’ve really enjoyed getting to know my patients in a smaller community environment, but I’m looking forward to being a part of what GraceMed is getting started in Topeka. We’re going to be able to offer vision care to a lot of people who have been having to neglect that part of their health for a long time. I’m excited to see the impact we can make with new vision services for GraceMed’s patients in Topeka.”
