Eyedoc Jeff connected with Costco

Dr. Jeffrey Silbernagel, OD, has opened a practice, Eyedoc Jeff, at Costco Eye Clinic, 10745 Kingston Pike, and is accepting new patients. Farragut has a new optometrist in town.

Dr. Jeffrey Silbernagel, OD, has opened his practice, Eyedoc Jeff, next to Costco, May 4. He is accepting new patients and most insurances at the clinic located at 10745 Kingston Pike.

“I like being in Farragut,” he said. “I find the people to be very nice and hard-working.”

“This is an interesting arrangement with Costco, though, because it is not a necessity for my patients to be Costco members but most of them are,” he added.

The patient records from the previous optometrist have remained at the clinic.

For Silbernagel, whom patients know as Dr. Jeff, opening a practice came second to moving to East Tennessee. A New Orleans native, he and his wife, Diana Davis, a medical nutritionist, bought a house in 2009 in Tellico Plains.
