Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

I am passionate about Eye Care. I built my practice over the last 30 years with 3 basic rules. First I make a habit of listening carefully to my patients so that I can really tune in to their needs. Secondly, I invest in the best equipment and technology available in the industry. Finally I take the time to learn and expand treatment modalities for my patients as new understanding and new procedures become available. We want to bring our community the best that science and medicine have to offerRead more
