A Galesburg eye doctor office is expanding into Monmouth.

Kehoe Eye Care, 261 N. Broad St. Suite 35 in Galesburg, will be taking over the practice of Doctors Gary Distin and Daniel Doyle, at 67 Public Square in Monmouth.

According to the website and an ad that has been appearing recently in the Monmouth Review-Atlas, Distin and Doyle retired last Friday, June 28, and “and urge patients and friends to welcome Dr. Brian Plattner and Dr. Ally Braet, from Kehoe Eye Care,” the ad said.

“Together with the staff from Drs. Distin & Doyle, whom you already know and trust, they will continue the legacy of excellence in patient care at 67 Public Square” in Monmouth.

Planner said his office had an eye on Monmouth as a place to expand while the Galesburg office continues its own expansion. 

Kehoe Eye Care has “been talking for a couple of years and we’ve had our eye on Monmouth for years now, but we’ve been friends with Doctors Distin and Doyle and we’ve been waiting for them to retire.”

While Kehoe Eye Care was set to take possession of the Monmouth practice and building on Monday, there are plans for renovations, staff training and some new equipment. The goal is to open back up in Monmouth on July 15.

“We’ve had a lot of Monmouth patients come to see us in Galesburg and now they’ve expressed some appreciation that they won’t have to drive as far,” Plattner said.

The Monmouth office will be open Monday through Friday with evening hours on Monday and a half-day, in the morning, on Saturdays.

“The goal is to have the patient experience to be the same at either location. Our software is in the cloud so we’ll have access to their medical records at whichever office we’re at,” Plattner said, which includes the satellite office in Galva.

“We’re excited to continue the legacy of fine care that Doctors Disitin and Doyle provided for the Monmouth community and we’re happy to get more involved.”
