The reason I got into ophthalmology is because I like working with my hands and it was a surgical sub-specialty that interested me. I went to the University of Virginia and was in the first class of women for undergraduate. I went to the Medical College of Virginia and then went to Emory and Grady where I did my residency. I did two fellowships including a cornea fellowship at the New England Medical Center in Boston and one with a surgeon in Atlanta who was one of the first to do implant surgery back in the '80s. I have been in practice for more than 30 years, and I love what I do. One of the good things about getting on in years is that with the experience I have now, there are very few things that are a surprise to me. I have balanced my clinical career serving as an international lecturer and residency instructor. I have participated in medical mission trips to Belize, Peru, Guatemala, Tanzania and Bhutan, and have worked at The Good Samaritan Center in Atlanta. I currently serve on the managing board of the University of Virginia Alumni Association. I enjoy traveling, sailing and photography, and I would love to get to know you.

This content was provided by Dr. McMullan "The great thing about ophthalmology that I didn't know about it when I started out is that you really have to listen to your patients' interests, hobbies and professional day-to-day activities so you know how to best take care of them.
When I first meet a new patient, I try to listen to them to really understand why they're here to see me and to find out what I can do to help their visual needs. This usually means an interview and getting to know the patient beyond superficially just "what do you do." I need to know if my patient works on hard copies or computers, how far away is their desk. I need details about their professional activities and hobbies."
