      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Ernest's Care Philosophy

      Our patients deserve the best eye care possible. From the moment one enters our clinic, it is important that every encounter with every staff member be a positive experience. In 30 years of practice, we have strived to achieve an environment where patients are treated with respect and as plesently as possible. Patients are given the time necessary to evaluate their problems. Various diagnostic equipment are used to help me, as a physician, in achieving the best surgical outcome that one can anticipate. As a physician, I continue to strive for excellence in the care of each individual patient.
