Meet The Staff
Sam R. Silverblatt, O.D.
I was born in Ruleville, Mississippi. After attending LSU in Baton Rouge for three years I was accepted and graduated from Southern College of Optometry in Memphis Tennessee in 1981. I am a member of the American Optometric Association as well as the Louisiana State Association of Optometrist. I have been a member of the South Shreveport Rotary Club since 1984 and have served as an officer on several occasions. I have been Youth Group Advisor, President of the Brotherhood, and Board Member for B'nai Zion Temple. I am a Charter Member of Sci Port Discovery Center, friend of the Strand Theatre, and sponsored YMCA Youth Basketball for ten years.
Rachel Meyer-Borel, O.D.
The office of Dr Sam Silverblatt, Optometrist, is proud to announce that Dr. Rachel Meyer-Borel joined his practice August 11, 2014. Dr. Borel is the daughter of Carol Meyer and the late Dr. Harold C Meyer, Optometrist. She was born in Metairie, Louisiana and moved to Shreveport, La at an early age. She graduated from Caddo Magnet High School and attended Louisiana State University in Shreveport, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with her Bachelors of Science in Biological Sciences. After graduation, she worked with Dr. Silverblatt as an Optician and Optometry Assistant for many years. His encouragement influenced her decision to become a Doctor of Optometry.
Joanne is the highlight of our practice! She is originally from Rochester, NY, but has been living in Shreveport since 1992. She has been with Dr. Silverblatt for 20+ years and we are not going to let her retire anytime soon!
