Advanced Eye Care Center mourns the loss of Dr. George K. Johnson

Doctor photoDear Patients,

We are writing with our deepest regrets to announce the passing of Dr. George “Ken” Johnson.

Dr. Johnson, age 69, passed away peacefully on June 3rd after a battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife Cora, and two children, William and Christina. Here is a link to the obituary.

We at Advanced EyeCare Center are still absorbing this enormous loss, as are so many of Dr. Johnson’s patients who have known him for years, and in many cases, decades. We understand this message may be difficult to process.

Over the course of the last year, Dr. Johnson began overseeing a transition of his practice to a new owner and eye doctor,  Dr. Waleed Alsadi, who shares Dr. Johnson’s commitment to excellence and the same high level of patient care. Dr. Alsadi is currently seeing patients. Please look for more information regarding the transition to follow at a later time.

There will be a celebration of life ceremony to honor Dr. Johnson. This will be held at Hansen Desert Hills on Friday, June 25th, at 9:30 am. 6500 E. Bell Rd., Scottsdale, AZ 85254.

Our deepest sympathies,

The Advanced Eye Care Center Family
