Get to Know Joe Kea, the Guy

Dr. Kea is the friendly and familiar face you'll get used to seeing around the office. He hails from Carthage, Mississippi where he graduated High School in 1984. He has a golden doodle named Dexter who often finds his way on to our office Instagram page. Dr Kea loves to be casual, often wearing boots and jeans while seeing patients. He's passionate about his profession, but he doesn't let his seriousness get in the way of maintaining a fun, friendly atmosphere. We invite you to experience the spirit of our office!

    'As a child, I had a hard time at school. I had difficulty reading and was labeled a “slow learner.” It was only later revealed that vision problems were at the root of my difficulties. Once I saw an eye care professional and was fitted with corrective lenses, my performance in school excelled. We see these type of success stories every day at Dr. Anderson and it’s one of the many things that makes my career so rewarding!”

    'I love coming to work every day and watching the transformation in our patients. It never ceases to amaze me how being able to see clearly and without pain boosts their confidence and restores independence. So many people are living with limitations due to visual impairment – and might not even know it! Working here with Dr. Anderson has shown me how even the smallest improvement in one’s sight can make a huge positive impact on their lives.”
