Wow, not only a great clinician, but a lovely human. He was thorough, protective, explained everything, and was willing to interrupt his Saturday night to repair my husband’s retina. Thanks!!

Personable, smart, and steady hands. Performed cataract surgery on both eyes. Got me back to 20/20, in both eyes. Highly recommend him.

After going to three other ophthalmologists over the past seven years trying to get help for my chronic eye condition, I finally found a doctor who was interested in spending time with me to listen and respond. I am so appreciative to received some help that has brought major improvement to my eye...more
