Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Koury "As a glaucoma specialist and comprehensive ophthalmologist I take care of a wide range of patients. Theres no better eye care on the planet than here at Duke. We can handle everything and we handle it very very well. We are as well-equipped as any facility on Earth and we have some of the brightest minds in ophthalmology today. I became interested in ophthalmology when I was in medical school and seeing patients in the ophthalmology department during a summer internship. I so well remember a surgeon taking a patch off a patients eye after cataract surgery and the woman burst into tears and said Oh my God I can see again. I was sold lock stock and barrel. Im a second generation physician. Both my parents were physicians. In fact both worked for Duke at times during their career. I knew I wanted to be a physician from the time I was in diapers in a playpen behind the receptionists desk in my parents office in Burlington N.C."

Patient Comments (2)

She was brisk and unfeeling. Seemed more likely to refer me onto another practitioner. Did not give a diagnosis.
