Gentilly Vision Source would like say farewell to an amazing doctor and to wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors… Dr Brock Songy!!!
Earlier this year, Dr Songy left Gentilly Vision Source to start his own practice in Luling LA. We will miss him dearly and feel his departure greatly. We will forever be thankful for the time and work he put in here at Gentilly Vision Source. Songy Family Eyecare opened their doors on April 19, 2022 and they are looking forward to servicing the Luling area for all their eyecare needs. Check them out if you are in the area!
In this moment of uncertainty about the future and what it holds, may God keep you grounded and grant you with prosperity in all that you do. Good luck with your new practice!
