DR. SIEBERT graduated from the New England College of Optometry in Boston, MA and completed his internship training at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, FL and Newington VA Hospital in Newington, CT. In addition, Dr. Siebert has taught in Europe as a Clinical Professor at Hogeschool van Utrecht, The Netherlands. This European influence has provided Dr. Siebert with experience and knowledge of alternative treatments for various ocular problems that are not commonly practiced in the United States.
While traditional optometry treats the eyes as separate organs, Dr. Siebert understands that eye health occurs as part of the systemic health of the whole body. His holistic approach includes detoxification, herbal aids, nutritional couseling and spiritual counseling to improve overall well being and eye health. Eye conditions, such as, Macular Degeneration and Glaucoma can often be prevented and improved through these methods.
Dr. Siebert is an ambassador for the field of optometry and living hope for thousands of people in need of eye care. Dr. Siebert has been involved with OneSight, Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity and The Lighthouse Heiken Children's Vision Fund providing charitable eye care to children and others who cannot afford services.
Dr. Siebert understands the importance of being a strong role model, he takes the responsibility to heart and has become an avid champion for the young, especially those who are financially and/or
physically- challenged. Dr. Siebert participates in up to three OneSight missions each year to help children and adults in poverty stricken countries improve their vision. In 2005, he went to Cambodia with six other doctors seeing 3,000 - 4,000 patients per day for eight days. Overall, they examined 28,500 people in Cambodia and fitted many of them with donated eyeglasses. His charitable contributions have taken him to several countries, such as, Bolivia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Cambodia, China, Honduras, Bulgaria, Thailand and Ecuador. He is also well regarded for his past charitable work with The Lighthouse Heiken Children's Vision Fund during his time in Miami. Three to four days a week Dr. Siebert visited a local school to provide free eye care and glasses to children who cannot afford to see a doctor. To maximize services he utilized a mobile unit fitted with the latest optometric equipment. Currently, Dr. Siebert resides in South Carolina and volunteers his time with the Anderson Free Clinic assisting those who cannot afford diabetic retinal exams.
His generosity has not gone unnoticed and is often the subject of conversation in local newspapers and he has received numerous awards for his work. His comforting and supportive communication methods have established a growing clientele list helping to spread the word about health, happiness and the true spirit of giving.
