RAM is saddened to announce the death of Stan Brock, distinguished Founder and President

“For the past 20 years I have been fortunate enough to work alongside Stan Brock bringing healthcare including Eye Care across Virginia and the United States. I was honored to be chosen by Stan to further his mission and carry it on in Virginia growing from 2 to 10 clinics a year.
