Mergers and Acquisitions: A Tale of Two Practices

Koetting Eye Center is delighted to announce the merger with (and acquisition thereof) The Eye Center of West County in Ellisville.  This merger was final in January of 2016, but most of the changes have taken place behind the scenes in order to achieve a smooth transition and excellent continuity of care for our patients.  
The Eye Center of West County is a well-established practice in Ellisville, MO which was started by Gary W. DeLancey, O.D., who continues to see patients at this office part time.  Koetting Eye Center is very pleased to welcome all those patients for whom The Eye Center of West County has provided eyecare in the past and all new patients who are just joining our practice!  We hope that you will find the merger of our practices to be beneficial to you and your families and that you will continue to enjoy the same high level of comprehensive eyecare you have come to expect.  Please feel free to drop by any time to see some of the exciting new changes to the office and to meet two of the Optometrists from our Brentwood office who are now seeing patients at this location; Dr. Joe Castellano and Dr. Nick Castellano.
This merger was an obvious decision for Dr. Carmen Castellano and Dr. Gary DeLancey, who have been friends and colleagues for many years and felt that the philosophy of the two practices and the quality of care provided made this a perfect match.  For those patients at the Ellisville office, you will find increased selection of frames, new advanced testing technology, and increased access to treatments and specialty contact lenses.  You will see some familiar faces and some friendly new ones, but we hope that you will continue to entrust us with your care and that of your loved ones.
