Dr. Jonathan R. Bundy
After reading an article about Dr. Bundy in a UAB School of Optometry magazine, Dr. Sullivan contacted the Dean of the school to get in touch with Dr. Bundy. After many phone calls and a few cross-country flights for both parties, Dr. Sullivan knew that Dr. Bundy shared his commitment to exemplary patient care and asked him to join Premier Eye Center.
