FYidoctors Adds Second Location in St. Albert

FYidoctors announced it will be bannering its second location in St. Albert, Alberta through the acquisition of St. Albert Optometrists’ Clinic.

As part of the acquisition, Dr. Aaron Patel, Dr. Rajan Mistry, Dr. Amy Bakelaar and their staff have been welcomed in as part of the FYidoctors team.

“FYidoctors is setting the standards for how eye care in Canada should be,” said Dr. Aaron Patel. “Having access to their existing technology will help us stay up-to-date on the latest methods and best practises when it comes to optometric care of our patients. We hold ourselves to a high standard, so we look forward to raising the bar for eye care even higher alongside FYidoctors.”

Dr. Patel has over 15 years of experience practicing primary eye care optometry – 12 of which were practiced in Edmonton. He is an engaged member of the optometry industry, previously serving as President of the Alberta Association of Optometrists and currently serving as a councilman of the Canadian Association of Optometrists. He prioritizes humanitarian efforts and personally travels to underdeveloped countries like Honduras, Peru and Belize to assist the less fortunate with eye care.

With almost 20 years experience as a practicing optometrist in the St. Albert community, Dr. Amy Bakelaar has cultivated extensive knowledge in the industry working for St. Albert Optometrists’ Clinic and at a local cornea and cataracts surgeons’ office. Similar to her colleagues, she donates her time volunteering for organizations like Third World Eye Care Society, Amigos Eye Care, Remote Area Medical Volutneers and I Care International.

Dr. Mistry completed both his undergraduate degree and optometry degree at the prestigious University of Waterloo. During his studies, he practiced in various settings such as hospitals in Oklahoma, clinics in Australia and has provided care of those in underdeveloped countries like Nicaragua and Peru.

“Coninuing to grow our banner in a region is a big deal for us as it creates more brand recognition and ability to market more effectivey,” said Dr. Alan Ulsifer, CEO of FYidoctors. “We’re excited to welcome Dr. Patel, Dr. Mistry, Dr. Bakelaar and their staff to FYidoctors and look forward to working alongside them to serve the community’s eye care needs.”

This acquisition marks the second in Alberta within the last week.
