Dr. Zinkovich Headshot

Joseph Zinkovich, OD

Dr. Zinkovich and his wife proudly call South Carolina home despite their movement around the country for different academic appointments to educate future eye doctors. There is no greater way to improve one’s skills than to teach those skills and knowledge to the future generations.

With a background in Bioengineering, Dr. Zinkovich has spent part of his career in medical imaging research and overseeing research programs at various institutions.

Dr. Zinkovich is very happy to be back in service to the Easley community where he had practiced for five years as a provider with the Prisma Eye Institute.
