Dr. Korshin is a graduate of Harvard Medical School. He completed a one-year internship in internal medicine at Boston City Hospital, and a three-year residency in ophthalmology at the U.S. Public Health Service Hospital in San Francisco and at Letterman Army Medical Center in San Francisco. He is certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology. He is also board certified in General Preventive Medicine. Dr. Korshin served as Chief of Ophthalmology at the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage through 1985, when he opened a solo private practice in Anchorage. He is a 34-year member of the Alaska State Medical Association; in 1994 the Association voted him as Alaska Physician of the Year. Dr. Korshin no longer performs major eye surgery, and does not "co-manage" (i.e., split fees) with the trusted surgeons he refers his surgical patients to, so you can rely on his unbiased second opinion if you have concerns about surgical procedures other physicians may have recommended. Dr. Korshin does not use a technician for his exams: you'll first see his nurse, who will take a history and measure your visual acuity (and your glasses, if you have any). From then on, you see only Dr. Korshin for your exam, diagnosis and care. Dr. Korshin's practice does not overbook: waiting times are usually no more than 5 or 10 minutes. The waiting room is sunny, and has a large collection of current (and vintage) magazines. Dr. Korshin is a participating physician for Medicare, Premera, Aetna and Beech Street/MultiPlan. He accepts Alaska Medicaid. He does not see Worker's Compensation cases. He also does not see children under the age of 5.

This content was provided by Dr. Korshin "History, history, history! That's how every good medical encounter starts.
Why are you here today? Do you have a problem with your vision? Can you describe it? Is this a new problem? What eye problems have you had in the past? What is your general health and your medications? Who is your primary physician? What do you expect from today's visit?
What is your occupation? What are your hobbies and outdoor activities? Does anyone in your family have glaucoma or macular degeneration? Where did you grow up? Have you seen other eye doctors here in Alaska? If so, do you have any medical records?
Then you talk and Dr. Korshin listens.
The eye exam follows all this. It does not come first."
