No matter where you look in the office of Steven Fagien, MD, FACS, you see small touches of the physician at the center of this practice. Whether it is in the main entryway where he created a compass-shaped design in the tile floor and a painted sky visage on the domed ceiling, or the commissioned pencil drawings of famous sets of eyes that adorn the walls of the reception area, or the book, authored by Fagien, with the colorful Andy Warhol-like cover featuring various plays on the same ideal eye, he permeates the space he uses to greet the most important assets of his practice—his patients. Even the jazz piped into the reception area has been chosen because, beyond his practice, the physician has an incredible passion for that music genre.

In all of these details, it is apparent that Fagien is a physician who knows what he likes and what he wants, and he has been managing his career and his business with this mentality since the beginning.

Choosing ophthalmology

As identical twins, Fagien and his brother Michael were both in high school when they decided on what field they would enter. “My brother and I were fairly bright and, as twins, we would discuss our futures and simply asked, ‘What are we going to be when we grow up?’ Many of the people that I looked up to and respected in our town were physicians, and for me, it was a choice of having a respectable job in something that frankly not everybody can do,” explains Fagien.
