Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shahon "It is very important to provide each patient the time they need to fully understand their eye condition and the recommended treatment. A patient should not feel rushed in and out of an office without gaining knowledge of their eye issues. The patient-doctor relationship is very important to ensure that the patient can be a partner in improving their eye condition."
