Dr. Dvorak's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Dvorak "Growing up the youngest of 14 on a farm southwest of the Twin Cities, Dr. John A. Dvorak learned the value of hard work, family, and local healthcare. His work ethic was his driving force behind his motivation to complete medical school at the University of Minnesota as well as residency in Ophthalmology at the University of Minnesota and at the same time raise a large family with his wife, Deborah. Dr. John A. Dvorak understands the needs of the patients he serves and the value of having healthcare right in your own community. His combination of cataract surgery skills, honed over the last 19 years, as well as a tireless work ethic and hours of teaching doctors and medical students, provides his patients with the most experience, talents, and unique skills few other Ophthalmologists can provide. Whether that surgery is conventional cataract surgery, laser assisted cataract surgery, LASIK, PRK, laser eye surgery, or any comprehensive ophthalmic surgery, his patients can have their surgery close to home with outcomes that are second to none. Dr. Dvorak's skills have been recognized by numerous organizations including American Board of Ophthalmology with board certification since 2001, Top Surgeon Award from Sightpath Medical 2013 and 2014, and membership in the American Academy of Ophthalmology, Minnesota Academy of Ophthalmology, Minnesota Medical Association, and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons. He is on staff at CentraCare - Long Prairie and St. Cloud; Glacial Ridge Hospital – Glenwood; Stevens Community Medical Center – Morris; Swift County Benson Hospital – Benson; Rice Memorial Hospital - Wilmer; St. Cloud Surgery Center – St. Cloud. Dr. Dvorak has many other interests outside of Ophthalmology including composing music, hunting, fishing, and golfing. He resides on 40 acres in Sauk Rapids, MN with his wife of 30 years and spends time with his 16 children and eight grandchildren!"
