She has an amazing bedside manner and is truly exceptional in eye surgery. She did stye surgery for me and did a beautiful job. She also diagnosed my mother with glaucoma and she has great vision thanks to her care for over a decade.

She has an amazing bedside manner and is a brilliant doctor. She diagnosed me with a condition that three other doctors could not diagnose. I love her and I am grateful I found her. She is the whole package.
