At Piedmont Eye Center, we do our best to provide top-notch customer service and create space for positive interactions with patients. We also love to introduce you to our wonderful employees. This month, we’re introducing you to Tiana!
What is your role at Piedmont Eye Center?
I am a Certified Ophthalmologist Assistant under Dr. Elizenda Ceballos, one of Piedmont Eye Center’s Glaucoma and Cataract specialists.
How long have you worked at Piedmont?
I’ve worked at Piedmont Eye Center for about 3 and a half years.
What do you love most about your job?
One of the things I love most about working at Piedmont Eye Center is the range of things we see and treat. We do everything from corrective surgery and cataracts to AMD and Glaucoma. We also see patients as little as infants to as old as 100+.
What is one thing you wish every patient knew?
I wish every patient would know that no matter how much it seems like rubbing your eyes brings temporary relief, it is not helping any situation. Rubbing can make eye problems worse, in fact.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I love to read, binge-watch TV shows, and play with my very energetic five-year-old son, Alijah.
If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one thing, what would it be?
If I was stranded on a desert island, I’d bring a Kindle, with all my favorite books pre-downloaded on it. I might not even want to be saved from the island.
If money was not a concern, what would you do every day if you didn’t work?
If money was not an option, I would travel as often as possible. My dream destinations include: Hawaii, Rome, Greece, Bora Bora, Egypt, England, and Australia.
If you could have dinner with any one person, living or dead, who would it be?
The person I’d love to have dinner with the most, is my Nonnie, Gloria Berkley. We lost her last fall and I miss her light. She encouraged me to apply for this job despite my lack of experience in the field.
Coke or Pepsi? Coffee or tea?
If I had to choose between Pepsi and Coke, I’d say Dr. Pepper. And between coffee and tea, coffee, hands down.
Do you have any words of advice to share?
Mistakes happen, but they only become failures if you don’t learn from them.
