Care Philosophy

As an oculoplastic surgeon I am an ophthalmologist trained specifically in the management of eyelid eye socket and tear duct disease. This includes droopy eyelids lumps and bumps around the eyelids skin cancers and orbital tumors among other conditions. Oculoplastic surgeons bring a unique perspective to eyelid and orbital surgery as we are trained first as eye experts before specializing in the area around the eyes. Although oculoplastics is a surgical field I prioritize the desires and symptoms of each of my patients and strongly consider the risk to benefit ratio of a potential surgery. I am not in a rush to operate without a compelling reason. I moved to Durham from the northeast and have thoroughly enjoyed living here. I enjoy playing tennis eating at local restaurants and exploring the mountains of western Carolina with my family.

I was referred to Dr. Liss about 2 plus years ago after another doctor had failed to diagnose my thyroid eye disease. This has been a long, slow and arduous process as I was dealing with double vision, swollen and tender eyelids with fat collecting all around my eyes. Dr. Liss provided excellent care throughout this entire time...always being careful to explain everything to me, helping me to understand that this was a slow process and providing a comprehensive care plan. His care is excellent

Not good. My eye looks bad after grafting. Very painful when he opened my eye since he had shut it closed for three weeks. He gave me NO medication for pain. My eye hurts me constantly...like sand in it and tears up constantly also. He even overlooked another lesion right besides the one he took off. The doctor who did the moh's surgery saw and biopsied it after calling him. it was also cancer. Been there 5 or more years and Duke Eye Clinic only removed the hairs that were growing back.

Dr. Liss partially closed my upper tear duct. I have dry eyes but when closing tear ducts all the way, I teared too much. He had to do it twice b/c the first time it opened back up; second time he stitched it. He is professional and courteous. Too bad the front desk makes his job difficult. It's hard to get messages to him or deal with insurance matters, but the last time I tried, it was fine. I let him know about the front desk, so maybe some changes were made. I recommend him.

Liss accurately assessed my condition and recommended a course of treatment (infusion of high dose steroids) He did not follow through with making arrangements for me to receive the treatments. This, in spite of me following up with him via DukeMyChart (twice), and via multiple calls to him, and his staff. 12 days later following my repeated requests a second Duke MD filed the orders for the necessary treatment. Now 17 days after Liss recommended treatment ASAP it is still not scheduled.
