Care Philosophy

I believe that holistic wellness of the individual and traditional medicine are essential to the optimal wellness of my patients. I urge my patients to take preventative measures through healthy lifestyle decisions to promote optimum wellness of their vision, and encourage my patients to get regular eye exams for early detection of diseases of the eye. When treatment is necessary, I do everything in my power to restore my patient's vision to peak efficiency.
