Dr. Logothetis completed his residency at Northwestern University where he served as Chief Resident, advocated for ophthalmology, performed cataract surgery for underserved communities in India, published in peer reviewed journals and presented research at several national conferences.
After finishing his undergraduate studies at Northwestern University, he spent six months living in Athens, Greece where he volunteered in several hospitals and studied modern Greek language at a local university. He then went on to attend the University of Illinois College of Medicine where his interest in ophthalmology began while observing cataract surgery and contributing to research in ophthalmology.
Growing up in the north suburbs of Chicago solidified his appreciation for Midwest family values and inspired his continued involvement in community service and advocacy. His favorite part of medicine is developing friendships with patients and helping them improve their quality of life through vision correction. He contributes his affinity to connecting with people to his cultural background.
When Hercules is not at work, he enjoys traveling and spending time with his wife, newborn son, and two dogs.
