As the son of two teachers, I see my physician role as a student, teacher, and surgeon for my patients. I try to learn about what is important medically and personally for each of my patients, and I believe that providing information and education are just as important as treatment. I recommend appropriate examinations and diagnostic tests that may detect or prevent common ocular conditions as well as provide medical and surgical treatment. When treatment is required, I prefer to discuss the numerous medical and surgical options with my patients and recommend the best option for each patient. Most importantly, I dedicate myself to continuing medical education to supplement over 20 years of experience so I may deliver the best medical and surgical care for my patients
