  • After being in private practice for 20 years in Greenville, Dr. Siddens joined the Greenville Hopsital System University Medical Group's Department of Plastic Surgery.  In 2014, GHS developed and built a new, innovate Eye Institute.  Dr. Siddens was honored to be one of three eye surgeons chosen to form the new Eye Institute.
  • The practice currently includes four doctors, three of whom are board-certified eye physicians and surgeons, and one board-certified optometrist.
  • The practice recently moved into our new GHS Eye Institute office, which includes a minor procedure room, and a laser suite.
  • Our office offers all complete eye care and surgery, eyelid reconstructive and cosmetic procedures, complete optometric services including contact lenses and glasses, and has a state of the art optical shop.
  • Our Mission: Heal compassionately.  Teach innovatively.  Improve constantly.
  • Our Vision: Transform health care for the benefit of the people and communities we serve.
  • Our Values: Compassion, respect, caring, honesty, integrity, and trust exhibited daily through communication, forward thinking, creativity, continually striving to improve, responsiveness, a willingness to change, education, research, and clinical quality.
