Highly professional. Treated ocular melanoma after UCLA Stein Eye ainstitute didn't get it right first time with plaque radiation. Amazingly my vision in the afflicted eye is about 20-40 and still improving after completely covering the eye with a radioactive disk for a week. He literally held my hand into surgery, which I concede was helpful. So far so good. I highly recommend him, especially if facing a rare diffuse iris melanoma. Very thorough explanations.. First-rate.
