A practicing ophthalmologist in New York, Annie is often asked to speak on varied health topics affecting women—like pregnancy, aging, diet, fitness, parenting, preventive medicine—as well as eye-related topics—like how to keep our eyes and eyelashes beautiful and healthy. She earned her BA from Cornell University and subsequent MD from New York Medical College and is a board-certified eye surgeon. Fluent in Spanish and Greek, Annie reaches out to a wide audience. Camera-ready Annie is not only beautiful but is also powerful on camera; her passion to educate the media world as well as her patients makes her a compelling personality.
Dr. Negrin studied undergraduate at Cornell University and earned her medical degree from New York Medical College. She returned to NYC for my ophthalmology training at St. Vincent’s Catholic Medical Centers of Brooklyn and Queens.
Annie certainly practices the health advice she gives her patients. She’s a marathon runner and understands the importance of including meditation in her busy life.
