Meet The Doctors

The Doctors of Madison Eye Care Center

The Doctors Parker established and opened Madison Eye Care Center in October 2001. As the practice continued to grow, they were honored to have Dr. Jennifer Newby join their staff as an associate in July 2007 and Dr Tracy Swartz in April 2013.

We are so thankful to have been able to provide care and to continue to grow with the community over the last several years. We designed and built a new facility that opened in August 2010. We are enjoying the new space, and state-of-the art equipment, and the ability to accommodate patients in a more efficient and timely manner. Our philosophy is one that is family and patient based. We look forward to continuing to serve our community and appreciate our staff and patients for allowing us to do the work that we love.
