Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

As an ophthalmologist, I strive to provide caring, state of the art eye services. We try very hard to maintain a schedule to minimize your waiting time. Sitting in a doctor's waiting room for more than a few minutes is a waste of your time, and from experience, I know it becomes frustrating very quickly. I specialize in cataract surgery, including laser assisted cataract surgery, treat conditions such as glaucoma and diabetic problems, and provide general eye care.Read more
