Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

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 serveson 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.
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.
