Dr. McSweeney grew up on the east coast and served 6 years in the Marine Corps with a tour in Vietnam. After graduating Illinois College of Optometry, he opened a private Optometry office in Maryland, which he operated for four years. He then joined the Katzen Eye Group, an Ophthalmology practice in Baltimore. Being an avid outdoorsman with a love for skiing, kayaking and mountain biking, he moved to Idaho to work with Dr. John Sonntag in his Boise Ophthalmology practice. Taking a sabbatical from Optometry, Dr. McSweeney spent a year mentoring troubled young boys at Wisdom Ranch, a “working cow/calf outfit” in Arco, Idaho. He most recently worked at the Hollingshead Eye Center, an Ophthalmology practice in Boise, prior to joining the Adams County Health Center to open an Optometry Clinic offering full eye care services for the community.
