Neha Serrano, MD
Dr. Neha Serrano is a board-certified ophthalmologist who specializes in medical diseases of the retina and macula. She has presented at several national meetings and is particularly interested in age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vascular diseases, and retinal imaging.
She was born in Hackensack, New Jersey, and raised in Apex, North Carolina. She attended Cornell University, where she graduated with distinction and double majored in both Chemistry and Psychology. After graduating from college, Dr. Serrano spent two years conducting research in the department of Psychiatry at Stanford University before beginning medical school at Georgetown University. While in medical school at Georgetown, she became interested in nearly every field she encountered, but ophthalmology quickly stood out and captured her attention. She graduated cum laude from Georgetown in 2007, after which she completed her internal medicine internship at the University of Chicago Medical Center. She returned to Washington, DC to complete her ophthalmology residency at the Georgetown University/Washington Hospital Center program. Her interest in the cross-section between ophthalmology and internal medicine persisted throughout residency, leading her to pursue a fellowship in Medical Retina at the Duke Eye Center. Her time at Duke solidified her interest in Medical Retina and she truly learned to treat and consider the whole patient during her training.
Since completing fellowship, Dr. Serrano has spent the last 5 years working in private practice in Maryland. She is excited for her new endeavor and strives to provide excellent patient care to her community. She is particularly passionate about patient education and looks forward to answering her patients’ questions about their retinal conditions.
Dr. Serrano has lived in Washington, DC for the past 15 years and currently lives in (and loves) Cleveland Park. In her spare time, she loves going for walks, exploring all that Washington, DC has to offer, and spending as much time with her young family as possible.
