"During my medical training, I was especially impressed with the tremendous impact an ophthalmologist can have in the lives of those suffering from vision loss. Today, I am fortunate to practice in a time when technology allows me to intervene and cure diseases like never before. Having undergone eye surgery myself, I feel I can relate to the concerns and questions patients may have when anticipating surgery on this delicate area.
"I look forward to the daily opportunities I have to build long-term relationships with my wonderful patients! They know I enjoy teaching them about their eyes, and that I won't leave the room until all their questions are answered. I try to go the extra mile to make sure my patients leave the office feeling comfortable and seeing well."
