Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Klein "My joy in practicing ophthalmology comes from the fact that I know I am providing something of value: sight. Our independence, our pleasure, our competence and our ability to communicate are all enhanced by our ability to see clearly. I look forward to each work day and to seeing each patient. My goal is to protect your vision as though it were my own and to do so in a way that is comfortable, informative and respectful."
