1988 – Present
Since 1988, Dr. Neatrour has been the resident ophthalmologist for the Southeastern Virginia Training Center (SEVTC) located in Chesapeake, Virginia. As a partner in the community operated by the State Department of Mental Health, SEVTC provides support for individuals with mental retardation and related developmental disabilities. SEVTC residents are offered education, habilitation, and health services supplemented by medical care by a psychologist, neurologist, ophthalmologist, podiatrist, and dentist. Dr. Neatrour developed the SEVTC eye clinic over twenty years ago and has regularly treated patients with cataracts, glaucoma, and strabismus – conditions oftentimes a result of the patient’s drug treatment plan. Clinical diagnoses of conditions may be challenging since some patients are unable to communicate their needs. Dr. Neatrour works with the SEVTC staff to promote self-dignity, determination, and independence to help the residents lead a healthy lifestyle.
