Marcin Zygawski, M.D., F.A.C.S.

“My philosophy is to treat one patient at a time. This entails a doctor to  listen, give meticulous attention to detail, and utilize the latest state of the art technology available in order to provide the best treatment for both medical and surgical conditions of the eye. High quality health care develops from the cultivation of the doctor patient relationship.”

“After over a decade of practicing ophthalmology away from the Berkshires, I decided to come back to raise my family and had the privilege of joining Berkshire Eye Center. I hold a personal attachment to the area as I spent my first post-graduate internship year at Berkshire Medical Center and proposed to my lovely wife on a skiing trip in the Berkshires. I come from a very modest background and I am the son of two immigrants. I was raised nearby in Rensselaer County, New York, where I attended Averill Park High School. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, skiing, mountain biking and hiking. I also enjoy attending ECAC college hockey tournaments of which my alma mater, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, is a member.”
