2021: LONGING FOR THE DAWNING OF A NEW DAY!
TO OUR PATIENTS:
I apologize for being negligent with regularly updating our website. And, if the flowers are
growing and the trees are budding as you read this, I apologize again. We are extremely busy
taking care of our patients, and keeping us all safe at the office. As "The Beatles" once sang,
"...it's been a long, cold, lonely Winter". This figurative Covid-19 Winter will likely last into
the Summer or even the Autumn, but Spring will come and we will all finally be free to be
regular people again. Hang in there.
Meanwhile, we are extremely confident in our ability to keep everyone safe at our office during
this pandemic. We have perfected our sanitizing routine and have rearranged things to keep
everyone properly distanced and safe. Please be prepared to have your pupils dilated, and
allow 60-90 minutes to be at the office for a full exam. We respect everyone's time as best as we
can, however there are days where patients are added to the schedule for urgent care, or a
certain patient needs extra time that puts us behind schedule. Feel free to text the office number
on the day of your appointment to see if the doctor is running on-time. Earlier appointments
usually go faster.
Texting is our preferred media. If you cannot communicate by text, let us know and we
will arrange to communicate with you in your preferred media. We cannot easily
accommodate walk-in visitors as the office needs to be a locked facility for now. If you don't
have an appointment and need to visit the office, please text if you can or call before to give
us a heads-up. Very often we cannot pick up the phone when we are busy with patients so if
you call please leave a detailed voicemail and someone will get back to you.
WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT OUR OFFICE:
Please stay in your car and text or call 508-285-2015. The office door will be locked. A staff
member will call or text you when we are ready to meet you at the door. We may take your
history over the phone. Wearing a mask in the office is required, and you are responsible for
bringing your own. You will be asked to use hand sanitizer at the entrance and led to a safe
place in the office where you can safely distance and comfortably wait for your appointment.
Please avoid touching things in the office. Doors will be opened and closed for you.
Stay safe and positive. See you soon.

TUES & THURS 12PM-7PM
"Love what you do, and you'll never work a day in your life." Dr. Beth Chenier has over twenty five years of experience in primary care optometry and is still as excited about patient care as ever. She enjoys the challenge and variety of primary care, from giving a child's first pair of glasses, to fitting a teen's first contact lenses, to evaluating a patient's eye health, to relieving a patient's discomfort from infection or injury...sometimes all in the same day.
A 1993 graduate of The New England College of Optometry, Dr. Chenier is licensed in Massachusetts and Rhode Island (Advanced Therapeutics). Previously, she held an As Qualified therapeutic license in Connecticut. She has been an associate with Dr. Bukowski since 1997 and also maintains a practice in Fall River, MA.
Dr. Bukowski practices with a simple philosophy: to give every patient the very best care possible. He has earned some of the highest patient satisfaction ratings not only in the area, but nationally during his nearly three decades of practice. Dr. Bukowski is highly qualified and keeps up with the latest advances in eye care, yet he continues to embrace the traditional values of patient care. Dr. Bukowski treats eye injuries and infections, providing a phone number at which he can be reached for off-hour emergencies. He manages cataracts, glaucoma, corneal, vitreous, and retinal problems. Dr. Bukowski also co-manages surgical cases with a highly qualified network of eye surgeons in the area.
