Dr. Jonathan Kruh, MD
Dr. Kruh graduated cum laude from NYU with a B.A. in Biology, following which he pursued his medical degree at New York Medical College. Dr. Kruh completed an internship in General Medicine at Long Island Jewish Hospital and a residency in ophthalmology at New York Medical College-JHMC. Having an interest in complex pathology, he was accepted as a Fellow in Uveitis & Ocular Immunology at the Massachusetts Eye Research and Surgery Institution. During this training Dr. Kruh specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of ocular inflammatory disease. An additional fellowship in Cornea and Refractive Surgery at the Boston Eye Group has allowed him to further enhance his surgical capabilities. He is a native New Yorker who enjoys serving the population in his home town. From a very young age, he was adept at pursuits that call for fine motor skills and excellent perceptive abilities, such as painting and photography. These interests remain with him, although these days he is hard-pressed to find an hour to enjoy them; rather, his time is devoted to his patients and their well-being.
