WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I take care of patients who have a variety of general eye problems. My practice centers on eye examinations, urgent eye care, and the management of non-surgical conditions. I think it’s important to take the time to listen to a patient’s concerns and to provide answers to his or her questions. I find it gratifying to work collaboratively with my patients to provide them with the best possible eye health and vision. Even something as straightforward as new glasses can improve a person’s quality of life. I became an ophthalmologist not only because I value the importance of vision but also because I was awed by the exquisite beauty of the eye. Outside of work I enjoy reading, running on the treadmill, knitting and doing puzzles.
