Biography

Raymond Mis, M.D., a gastroenterologist from Rhode Island, lost his central vision to a condition called optic nerve atrophy, and was eventually declared legally blind. His doctors and colleagues thought it would be impossible for him to continue his practice. Loving his practice of gastroenterology he refused to give up.

Despite being legally blind, hearing impaired, and faced with the potential loss of his career, Dr. Mis overcame significant odds to continue practicing medicine. He voluntarily stopped performing endoscopic procedures but continued to see patients, and relied on his staff to read charts and medical records for him. Eight months later, his partner left the practice, leaving him to cope alone. He overcame these setbacks, eventually regaining his life, career, and independence back.

With the help of modern technology, Dr. Mis discovered a video monitor, which if he sat close enough to it, could correct his vision loss to 20/25. As part of a re-credentialing process, he had to perform 60 supervised procedures in order to be deemed a safe practitioner. On April 18, 2002, he became the first visually impaired gastroenterologist to receive accreditation by the State of Rhode Island and the Rhode Island Medical Society, paving the way for other professionals with physical limitations.

Currently approaching the completion of his memoir entitled, Blind Sighted, Dr. Mis travels the country as an inspirational speaker sharing his story of courage and hope to people with disabilities. Additionally, he has delivered inspirational keynote speeches at medical conventions, various organizations, hospitals, and nursing groups.

Dr. Mis teaches medicine at the New England College of Osteopathic Medicine and is chief of the gastroenterology department at Kent County Memorial Hospital in Warwick, RI. Rhode Island Magazine named him one of the top gastroenterologists in the state in 2000 and 2007. He was recently named to Best Doctors in America in 2009. This publication pronounces that they feel they have selected the top 5% of physicians in the country. Dr. Mis says, " I was humbled by this announcement on our hospital's press release."
