WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I work at the Duke Eye Center in Winston Salem, NC. I specialize in the surgical treatment of cataracts. Cataract surgery can now be used to help patients see better without glasses. I use premium lens that treat astigmatism, and use lens that help people far and near without glasses after cataract surgery. I also do laser cataract surgery. By talking to my patients I can help them determine which lens will give them the vision they want after cataract surgery. I also specialize in diagnosing and treating glaucoma using eye drops, laser treatment and surgery when necessary. I like to involve my patients in their care so that we can provide the best care for them. I was a nurse before becoming a doctor. This has helped me be a better listener so that I can understand what my patients need and want.
