Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

By treating a patient's cataract so they can see, or preventing a patient's loss of vision from glaucoma or macular degeneration, I can truly make a difference by improving a person's quality of life. By listening and understanding a patient's fear of losing their vision, their dirvers' license, or their independence, I can help by providing alternatives and treatments that will help ease their fears. Explaining and ensuring understanding makes a difference for my patients, as they feel more comfortable with their situation and they have a better understanding of their medical diagnosis. In the end, becoming a partner in my patient's medical decisions truly makes a difference in their care and outlook on life, as well as mine.Read more
