Dr. Jeff Kegarise is a graduate of The Ohio State University College of Optometry. Subsequently, he completed his residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He is a board-certified optometrist and Clinical Management Expert. Having lectured for many years on clinical disease, his management methods were recognized by one of three international experts by The Institute for Healthcare Improvement. This prestigious honor allowed him to be part of a national effort to improve the care delivered by doctors in practice through the Idealized Design in Clinical Office Practice Project. Through his lectures in healthcare, consultations and personal interactions, he has inexorably led practitioners toward enjoying the care they provide using innovative, patient focused service methods. Along with Cool Springs EyeCare, Dr. Kegarise’s wife, Dr. Susan Kegarise is an integral part of their other practices, including Donelson EyeCare, Performance Vision Therapy, and many other specialty clinical patient services.
Dr. Kegarise takes a personal interest in the vision and lives of his patients. Additionally, he founded The Tiger Institute where he provides insights and educational opportunities for all healthcare professionals (doctors, residents, students, administrators, managers and staff) to grow clinical, operational and developmental management skills, thus enabling them to build their own thriving practices.
