Dr. Howard Gimbel’s appointment to the Order of Canada places him among a very select group of Canadians. This extraordinary civilian honour is one of the highest that can be achieved in our nation, and if that wasn’t enough, our cataract surgeon is among only six appointees from Calgary to be awarded with the distinction this year. A recent article in the Calgary Herald details the distinguished individuals from our area to make the list, which was announced last December by the office of the Governor General of Canada. Among the other Calgarians included in the list of Canadians honoured for their outstanding achievements are world-renowned singer Jann Arden and Star Trek actor William Shatner.
We are so excited for Dr. Gimbel and we look forward to helping him provide advanced eye care services to the Calgary and Edmonton areas for years to come. For more information on the pioneering work our cataract surgeon has accomplished in the field of ophthalmology, or if you would like to schedule a consultation here at Gimbel Eye Center, please contact us today.
