Care Philosophy

As an ophthalmologist with specialty training in cornea, cataract, and refractive surgery, my treatment philosophy is partnered care with my patients. The importance of vision in a person's life can't be overstated, and I take it as a great responsibility when patients trust me with their eye care. I want my patients to understand their eye disease or condition, and to leave the office with all of their questions answered.
