Message from the Doctor

I take great pride in building a physician-patient relationship by spending time answering questions and educating patients about their ophthalmic conditions.   I feel that this approach has created comfortable and trusting relationships between myself and my patients. 

The complexities of ophthalmology make my day to day interactions with patients interesting and challenging.  I love the detailed approach that diagnosing and treating vitreoretinal diseases requires. I get excited about the utilization of technology, such as lasers, OCT’s (optical coherence tomography), and fluorescein angiography.  I am so grateful that I practice in a time when technological advances are commonplace and afford better treatment options for my patients.
