Ophthalmology | Male

Care Philosophy

The eye is a window to the soul, but also to the early detection of a broad category of preventable and treatable ocular and systemic diseases. My goal is to link what my patient tells me is bothering them to what I can see in their eyes, and to help inform them of their specific risks and benefits of treatment options.
