Before joining the Center For Excellence in Eye Care in 1996, Dr. Gabay was Chief of Ophthalmology for CAC Ramsey HMO in the late 1980's. In 1991, Dr. Gabay founded the South Florida Ophthalmology Network. He is a staff member at Baptist Hospital of Miami. Other surgical affiliations include Surgical Park and Baptist Medical Arts Surgery centers.

I recently had a cataract removed by Dr. Gabay and I am very pleased with the result. I can now see very well at distance where before I was nearly blind in that eye. Dr. Gabay and his staff made me feel very much at ease and I would recommend them to anyone that needs cataract surgery.
