Care Philosophy

A child's eye is not just a small version of an adult's. Children have special problems with their eyes that need immediate attention in order to assure good vision in both eyes as an adult. I am a Board Certified Ophthalmologist who has done subsequent fellowship training in Pediatric Eye Care. I divide my time between the office at Lakeshore Eye Care in Mequon (Tuesdays), NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Units) throughout the Milwaukee area, and Children's Hospital. I am on the faculty of the Eye Institute where I supervise the training of tomorrow's ophthalmologists and conduct research.
