Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Whitmore "Dr. Whitmore is a solo practitioner and will be with you during every step of your eye care, from diagnosis to treatment, including surgery if needed. Cost-effective care is a consideration in everyone's case, but not to the detriment of providing the best possible treatment. Dr. Whitmore is conservative regarding treatments that entail significant risks: the benefits must clearly outweigh the risks. All options will be reviewed and he encourages open discussion."
