Ophthalmologist Dr. James Van Hulle has joined Orangeburg Eye Center on Summers Avenue and is accepting new patients.
Dr. Van Hulle comes to Orangeburg after completing an internship in internal medicine at Akron City Hospital in Ohio, where he completed training in ophthalmology. He served as chief resident during his final year of training.
He attended The Ohio State University College of Medicine, where he was awarded the Means Scholarship and earned honors in ophthalmology, neurology and psychiatry. His undergraduate bachelor of science in microbiology was earned at Ohio State, with Dr. Van Hulle receiving the trustee scholarship.
Raised in Cincinnati, Dr. Van Hulle said he first became interested in ophthalmology in high school. “I had seen eye doctors my whole life and understood the importance of good vision,” he said.
He was drawn to Orangeburg Eye Center by “the excellent physicians, small town atmosphere, and friendly and welcoming patients.”
