"At Western New York Retina, the office of Joseph Murphy, MD, our office staff has incorporated many healthy options. We supply a water cooler and the staff is encouraged to have a water bottle at their work station for hydration. Our luncheons are usually a salad bar with chicken and low fat salad dressing. Pedometers and athletic shoes are worn to increase exercise daily. Healthy choices are a number one priority for all our staff."- Donna Rydza, Office/Human Resources Manager
