Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Dr. Anthony Favale attended The City College of New York, College of Staten Island. He completed medical school at the New
England College of Optometry in Boston, Massachusetts. After graduation in 1993, Dr. Favale came to Jacksonville and has been working hard to provide patients a convenient, high quality experience and warm, welcoming environment. He then joined forces with Dr. Akel and for nearly a decade, Dr Favale, alongside Dr. Akel, has taken an already well respected optometry practice to the next level.
Surprisingly, Dr. Favale first started his career as an electrical engineer. He soon realized that he wanted to dedicate his life to helping others and went back to school for optometry. His patients are the first to agree that he made the right decision.
While away from the office, Dr. Favale enjoys spending time with his wife, Sandra, as well as their six nieces and nephews. He enjoys being outdoors and loves hiking and going to the beach. A big fan of the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New York Yankees, Dr. Favale also enjoys watching Formula 1 racing. Dr. Favale is also a rocket enthusiast. At least once a month, you’ll find him shooting rockets, literally, a mile up into the sky. Quite a sight!.
