Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Jaffe "Im a retina specialist who takes care of patients who have problems with the back of the eye. When a patient comes to see me I like getting to know them and their history so that I can tailor their treatment. My patients come from a variety of different backgrounds so I find that I often learn as much from them as they do from me. Everybody has a different story and I very much like to learn about the patients to whom I provide care. Duke is a great place at which to work and from which to seek treatment because its a very collaborative institution. Everyone works together to do whats best for the patient. Outside of work I like to spend as much time as possible with my family. I also enjoy cooking playing sports and watching sports."
