Hattiesburg Retina Surgeon Serves the Community
Southern Eye Center offers more than just eye care at their premier medical and surgical ophthalmology center located in the Mississippi Pine Belt. The extensive experience of their fellowship-trained surgeons and unparalleled quality of patient care are their strongest assets. The same genuine passion, care and expertise that these doctors put into their work radiates outside the workplace and into the community.
Dr. Jaime Jiménez is a fine example of the surgeons at Southern Eye Center. He generously and faithfully gives of his
time, talents and resources to the city of Hattiesburg. An expert in his field, he became South Mississippi’s first full-time fellowship trained vitreo-retinal specialist and has been keynote speaker in many national and international conferences. He is the proud father of five children, and much of the University of Southern Mississippi’s orchestra would proudly call him family as well. He has an endowed chair in the orchestra and is a member of Partners for the Arts at USM. He also sits on the board of the Hattiesburg Concert Association as a well-known advocate for the music community. Dr. Jiménez enjoys attending and supporting various musical events and can often be found at orchestra performances at the university and neighboring communities.
Along with supporting the arts, Dr. Jiménez is an active supporter of the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi and participates in their Walk for Diabetes each fall. He also donated the telemedicine room for the new Moffitt Student Health Center on USM’s campus, opening in 2015.
Dr. Jiménez says, “There is a great sense of personal achievement when you can give back to the community that has welcomed and trusted you through the years.” From improving vision and quality of patients’ lives to improving the community, Southern Eye Center’s team of Hattiesburg retina surgeons show they care and appreciate their patients’ trust, respect and support in their community service efforts.
