Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Waggoner "To many people, vision is the most valuable of their five senses. It is an honor for patients to allow me to be a part of optimizing, maintaining, protecting, and restoring their vision.

I also believe strongly in patient education as informed patients are empowered to be in control of their eyecare.  "
