AccessOC partnered with Mission Hospital Laguna Beach through our Integrated Care model on November 30th, 2017. Dr. Ozgur and Dr. Gosheh performed three eye surgeries. One patient, Jose, went from being unable to see his own fingers to now being able to take a driving test at the DMV. Thanks to the doctors' time and service, Jose was capable of sight and enjoyed the views of the outdoors as soon as he walked out the hospital. We want to thank Mission Laguna Beach, Dr. Ozgur and Dr. Gosheh for their commitment to serving those patients!

All guests received a certificate of appreciation, along with a thank you bag, for the amazing work they contributed in making an incredible impact on patients' lives.
