Our staff is committed to providing quality care to Piedmont Eye Center patients. They’re also a lot of fun, and we love giving you the opportunity to get to know them. This month’s Meet the Staff blog post is about Casey Hart!
What is your role at Piedmont Eye Center?
I am mainly a scribe and assistant for Dr. Ganser, our Pediatric and General Ophthalmologist. I typically assist her during the exams. I also scribe and tech for the other physicians in the office. Our research department has been growing rapidly, and I assist in those clinical studies as well.
How long have you worked at Piedmont?
I will have been here 6 years come August 2020.
What do you love most about your job?
I absolutely love working with the pediatrics in Dr. Ganser’s clinic, but I just really enjoy helping and connecting with people in general. I never knew how valuable vision was until I began my time here, and I love seeing the difference we can make in someone’s life.
What is one thing you wish every patient knew?
How hard we work and how much time and effort we put forth trying to provide them the best care and visual outcome possible.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I love spending time with my daughter, Hadlee, step-daughter, Riley, husband, and the rest of our family. We have a ton of nieces, nephews, and other family, so we spend a lot of time with them. I enjoy fires in the backyard, long drives in the mountains, anything to do with the water, camping, going to church on Sundays, listening to music, and eating yummy food.
If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one thing, what would it be?
Can I pick my daughter? If not, then hands down MUSIC. I could not imagine a world without music.
If money was not a concern what would you do every day if you didn’t work?
Travel with my family. Although I’m kind of a homebody, I would love to travel around in an RV to different campgrounds with my loved ones, experience new adventures, and catch a bunch of live music! I’d also love for us to be able to advocate for Shriners Children’s Hospital as we traveled around, since they have done so much for my little girl, Hadlee.
If you could have dinner with any one person, living or dead, who would it be?
It’d be either my oldest cousin Justin or my grandmother Joyce, who have both passed. I would love for them to have been able to meet my little family, be with me at my wedding, or just see how much my life has changed in the last few years since they left.
Coke or Pepsi? Coffee or tea?
Not a big soda drinker, but I don’t mind an ice-cold bottle of Coke! And coffee for sure—I’m a mama, remember?
Do you have any words of advice to share?
You never know when God is going to call you home, so make every day count and let the people you love KNOW without a doubt how much you love them.
