I make a point of putting them at ease, trying to connect with them on a personal level and making them feel comfortable in my care. It's amazing how a little personal touch goes a long way." A graduate of the University of Southern California where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in the honors program, Dr. Phillips earned his Doctor of Medicine from the Howard University College of Medicine in Washington, D.C., graduating as the class valedictorian. His post?doctoral training included an internship in Transitional Surgery at Howard University Hospital, a residency in Ophthalmology and a fellowship in Vitreoretinal Diseases, both at the Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia. Dr. Phillips is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology, where he serves as an examiner, and is licensed in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C.
