Dr. Hudak's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hudak "I grew up in Cincinnati, in a family that embraced Medicine and the Arts. A third-generation physician, my mother was an ophthalmic operating room nurse who was known as a child prodigy on the piano, playing perfectly Rachmaninoff at five years old. My grandmother, the love of my life, was a professional ballerina, invented tap-on-toe, taught a couple of the original Rockettes, and was the owner of a dance studio. My grandfather, an Ophthalmologist, was first violinist in Cincinnati's Youth Symphony Orchestra and avid photographer and painter. My uncle, who was the first to figure out how the eye worked chemically (after describing fatty acid degradation and synthesis) and taught for years at San Diego's Medical School, loved to cook and was well-published in Gourmet and Bon Appetit magazines besides the professional biochemistry journals. The product of this strong influence of Medicine and the Arts, it was natural to be drawn to Oculoplastics. I love what I do, and do my utmost to help my patients achieve what they desire in the way of eyehealth and facial rejuvenation."
