Rodney P. Coe, MD, MS

Dr. Coe is a native New Yorker who grew up in a family of physicians in Brooklyn, NY.  He attended the prestigious Regis High School in Manhattan, where he graduated with Honors.  Driven by a strong interest in the sciences and technology, he went to Boston College and graduated in the Honors Program, with a major in Biology and a minor in Computer Science.  Further integrating his interests, he received a Master of Science in Computers in Biological Research from New York University.  His academic and personal interests led him to the field of Medicine, and he was granted the Excellence in Ophthalmology Award while in medical school.  It was natural for Dr. Coe to be drawn to the specialty of Vitreoretinal Disease and Surgery, a field that is constantly at the cutting edge of technology.  He has presented his research in Ophthalmology on a national level.  Dr. Coe has extensive expertise in the most advanced diagnostic and treatment modalities for the medical and surgical treatment of diseases of the retina, macula, and vitreous.  With strong New York roots, he feels privileged to share this experience with the Long Island community.

When not practicing Medicine, Dr. Coe enjoys world travel, dining out, and music.  He is also an avid sports fan and enthusiast.
