Dr. R. Michael Siatkowski

There is a new face in the leadership role at Oklahoma’s nationally ranked Dean McGee Eye Institute (DMEI). R. Michael Siatkowski, MD, MBA joins the Faces of Oklahoma as the new chief executive officer of DMEI and the Edward L. Gaylord professor and chair of the University of Oklahoma (OU) Department of Ophthalmology.

Prior to assuming the leadership role at DMEI on March 1, 2021, Dr. Siatkowski served as vice chair for academic affairs and ophthalmology residency program director for DMEI/OU. He has practiced as a pediatric and neuro-ophthalmologist at DMEI since 1999.

“I am honored to be in this role,” Dr. Siatkowski said. “I am passionate about DMEI’s mission of serving all Oklahomans and the global community through excellence and leadership in patient care, education, and vision research.  Our doctors and scientists are working every day to put an end to vision loss through cutting-edge treatments and groundbreaking research. All of us at DMEI look forward to serving our fellow Oklahomans and improving their quality of life.”

DMEI serves patients at four locations in the Oklahoma City metro area – at the Oklahoma Health Center, Northwest OKC, Edmond, and Oklahoma Children’s Hospital – plus a clinic in Lawton and offers the full-range of ophthalmology sub-specialties along with optometry. In addition to comprehensive eye exams for newborns to adults, services provided include cataract surgery, diabetic eye care, glaucoma treatment, LASIK vision correction, and cosmetic eye and facial treatments. 

Siatkowski says, “Anyone in need of eye care should research all of the options available at DMEI. The spectrum and quality of care we provide are unmatched anywhere in the region. We would be honored to serve you.”
