Dr. Mark Gordon, optometrist and managing
partner of Barenburg Eye Associates, never dreamed that both his
daughter and son would follow in his footsteps.
Dr. Gordon established
his first practice in Taneytown, in Carroll County, in 1972. By
the end of 1978, he added four locations in the greater Baltimore
area. Purchasing the established, four-location Barenburg family
practices in 1980, Dr. Gordon vowed to continue the same level
of care and service that Baltimoreans had grown to know and trust
for over 60 years.
In 1996, Dr. Gordon’s daughter, Shoshana Cohen, joined the
practice, specializing in contact lenses, pediatrics, and glaucoma
treatment and co-management. In 1999, Dr. Gordon’s son,
Joshua joined the family practice specializing in contact lenses,
pediatrics, and treatment of dry eye.
All three doctors graduated
from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry in Philadelphia with
citations in clinical excellence, and are members of the American
and Maryland Optometric Associations with certification by the
Maryland Board of Optometry and the National Board of Examiners
With locations in Downtown
Baltimore, Dundalk, Ellicott City, Forest Park, and Pikesville,
the practice has three additional optometrists and three ophthalmologists.
Barenburg Eye Associates offers comprehensive eye care encompassing
routine eye examinations, treatment and management of eye disease,
as well as cataract and LASIK surgery.
Family eye care was Barenburg’s
foundation, and although it has transformed into a multi-specialty
practice, it will always be a family dedicated to serving other
