Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Prasad "I love ophthalmology. It's medical, it's surgical. I get to play with expensive toys and the most sophisticated gadgets! But most importantly, I have the opportunity to help improve and maintain vision. It's one of the most, if not THE most, important of all special senses. I am committed to taking the best care possible of my patients and will do whatever I can to help. That's why I went into medicine. To help people, and to serve society. And as the saying goes, "the eyes are the window to the soul." It's my job to make sure they're squeaky clean!"
