Dr. Rebekah Swicegood was trained at both the University of Alabama School of Optometry, and the University of Houston College of Optometry, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. She is a licensed therapeutic optometrist and glaucoma specialist. She enjoys serving patients of all ages and stages of life, and is especially passionate regarding the diagnosis and treatment of ocular disease. It is Dr. Swicegood's desire that each of her patients would know that they are valuable, important, listened to, highly respected, and that their questions and concerns matter. It is her desire to provide care of the highest level of excellence to each of her patients--the same level of care with which she would want her own family members to be treated.
One of Dr. Swicegood's favorite activities is to serve on volunteer medical mission trips in developing countries, providing care to patients who have limited access to eye care, and telling them about the Lord Jesus and His great love for them.
Prior to becoming an eye doctor, Dr. Swicegood's first career was in music, as a piano, harp, and violin teacher, symphony harpist, and church pianist. She continues to enjoy music and is the principal harpist of the Texas Medical Center Orchestra. In her free time, she also enjoys activities such as hiking, bike riding, gardening, figure skating, writing poetry, Bible study activities, and spending time with friends and family.
