He will be missed

It is with deep regret and sadness that we share the news of the passing of Dr. Douglas DeMello on Monday, April 27, 2020.

Dr. DeMello joined Eye Physicians and Surgeons in 2013 following a successful independent career in nearby Trolley Square, where he had been practicing since 1979. His many devoted patients followed him to our office, and many new patients came to appreciate his professionalism as well as his humor and good nature.

Doug will always be remembered for brightening the spirits in the office. He could always be relied upon for a joke or a kind word. Dr. DeMello truly enjoyed his work and his connection to his patients and staff. His dedication was without question and was evident each and every day – he was as dedicated to others as they were to him. He will be missed by all of us who had the pleasure of working with him over the years and we extend our deepest condolences to his family.
