EDUCATION | TRAINING
After finishing his Bachelor of Science at Union College and his Medical Degree at Albany Medical College, Dr. Gabriels went on to complete both his Internal Medicine residency and Internship at Albany Medical Hospital. After realizing that ophthalmology was his true passion, he continued to New York Medical College for his Ophthalmology residency. Dr. Gabriels explains, “Growing up with a father and grandfather who were ophthalmologists, it was only natural that I aspired to be one too, especially since my father would repeatedly tell me that there was nothing better for me to do with my life than to become an ophthalmologist.”
