Message from the Doctor

My lifelong fascination with the visual process and how it works is what led me to the field of ophthalmology. I decided to focus exclusively on retinal surgery because I've always enjoyed working with my hands, and this ophthalmic specialty requires a great deal of precision and technical skill.

I really enjoy my job because I get to work with patients on a daily basis and help them find the most appropriate solutions for their vision needs. In addition, there are always new and exciting advances being made in my field, and I stay on top of them through continuing education and membership in many professional organizations. I am also proud to be a clinical associate at the Scheie Eye Institute, where I teach other eye doctors.

I always keep in mind that retinal procedures are new to my patients, so I take the time to explain everything in a way they can understand. I will also answer their questions and address any concerns they might have. My patients really appreciate the kindness, empathy, and respect I provide.
