To All My Wonderful Patients, 
After 31 years in practice in Whittier, I am transitioning to part-time. I have found two excellent optometrists who will be acquiring Fabrizio Optometry. After the transition, I will remain working in the office seeing patients 1-2 days per week. 
I want to take this opportunity to thank all of my patients in Whittier and beyond who entrust their eye care to me. Many of you, and multiple generations of your family, have been with me throughout my career. Through sharing stories and caring for you, it is our relationship that is most meaningful and special to me. 
So I am excited to introduce you to Aaronshawn Poolsaad, O.D. and Jana Giebel, O.D. I searched for colleagues who have the same philosophy and dedication to patient care as I do. I am confidant that Drs. Poolsaad and Giebel will give you the same warm, personal care that I try to give all my patients. 
Attached is a letter in which Drs. Poolsaad and Giebel will introduce themselves and tell you about their experience and qualifications. They both are graduates of my alma mater, Southern California College of Optometry. I am confidant you will be pleased with the care you will receive from both of these highly qualified doctors. 
My dedicated staff is also excited for all of you to meet Dr. Poolsaad and Dr. Giebel as they take Fabrizio Optometry to the next level. 
You are all wonderful and loyal patients to my practice. I truly enjoy providing eye care for all of you and trust that you will give Drs. Poolsaad and Giebel the same support you give to me. 
Warm regards, 
Suzanne M. Fabrizio, O.D. 

Introducing Dr. Poolsaad and Dr. Giebel 
Alongside Dr. Fabrizio, Dr. Poolsaad and Dr. Giebel are excited to continue providing exceptional eye care and build lifelong relationships with every patient. Fabrizio Optometry will soon be transitioning into Poolsaad Family Vision Optometry and we are thrilled for the opportunity to care for you and your family. 
Dr. Poolsaad and Dr. Giebel met in their first year of optometry school and have been partners ever since. They will be getting married in 2019 and happily look forward to starting their family both personally and professionally. 
Dr. Poolsaad was inspired by his mother who was extremely nearsighted and has aspired to being an eye doctor since the first grade. Dr. Giebel found her passion for optometry while working as a vision therapist. After working in various modes of practice, both doctors felt compelled to find a way of providing quality eye care true to their values. This was the motivation that lead to joining Dr. Fabrizio and the founding of Poolsaad Family Vision Optometry. 

Dr. Poolsaad received his Doctor of Optometry degree from the Southern California College of Optometry (SCCO). After graduating, he honed his skills by working with other highly reputable eye care professionals. His initial work began with a group of pediatric ophthalmologists at the Family Eye Medical Group which later lead to him earning a position as a Medical Expert Optometrist for students of the Los Angeles Unified School District. Although Dr. Poolsaad enjoys caring for patients of all ages, his passion for pediatrics was acknowledged when he was recognized as one of the top 3 best pediatric optometrists in Costa Mesa, CA. Whether he is caring for children or adults, he believes strongly in prevention and early detection of ocular disease. He is very experienced in managing glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and specialty contact lens cases. His mission is to give all his patients the attention and care they deserve. 

Dr. Giebel earned her Doctor of Optometry degree from the Southern California College of Optometry (SCCO). She then completed a post-doctorate Residency Program in Pediatric Optometry & Vision Therapy/Neuro-Optometry. She is licensed and trained in the use of Therapeutic Pharmaceutical Agents and certified by the National Board of Optometry to treat and manage Glaucoma and other ocular diseases. She is an adjunct Faculty member for the Pediatric Optometry & Vision Therapy/Neuro-Optometry Residency Program. Dr. Giebel is also a Medical Expert Optometrist for students of the Los Angeles Unified School District. Her main passion is treating vision issues associated with learning-related vision problems, lazy eye, concussion, and developmental vision problems. She enjoys helping her patients with all aspects of their vision development, comfort, and eye health.
