“I am very pleased that Dr. Sanford will be taking my place. He is a nice guy, with a nice family. His almost 20 years of experience as a surgeon leaves me feeling very comfortable in knowing that our GVMH patients, to include some of my own family in the local area, will be very well cared for,” said Dr. Louis Monaco, D.O., GVMH Ophthalmologist.
