At the age of 14, Dr. Croley made the commitment to become an Eye M.D. and help people with vision problems. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Cumberland College and attended medical school at the University of Miami. He then completed his internship at Baptist Medical Centers in Birmingham, Alabama. His eye residency was at the University of Alabama Eye Foundation Hospital where he became Chief Resident and House Staff Representative.
In 1980 Dr. Croley moved to Southwest Florida to open his practice and has since been very active in the development of new advances in Ophthalmology. He has travelled extensively across the nation and overseas consulting with other eye M.D.’s to promote excellence in eye care. Dr. Croley has been involved in the design and development of Electronic Medical Records and Telemedicine for more than 20 years.
Although he left Kentucky after graduating from college, his ties to his hometown are very strong. He is an active board member of the University of the Cumberlands and the Kentucky Mountain Laurel Festival. He was even bestowed with the honor of being named a Kentucky Colonel!
Even though he is so busy at the office, Dr. Croley enjoys cooking and entertaining. He loves to travel and spends lots of time spoiling his grandchildren. Very active in his church, Dr. Croley donates his time and resources whenever possible to help those in need, such as volunteering his services to the Lion’s Club Vision Clinic. The passion he had to become an eye doctor all those years ago is ever growing. His long-time employees are treated like family and enjoy working for such an honest and caring doctor.
