Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Patel "While performing a full range of comprehensive services, my sub-specialization is in ocular inflammatory disease (uveitis). This area is unique to ophthalmology in that it requires a complete review of one's health, personalized therapy, and close monitoring. As such, I have a very close relationship with my patients, as we become partners in the process of discussing and choosing therapies. I will always strive to be complete and ensure the entire ocular system is in good health."
