About Me

I evaluate and treat patients with a variety of visual symptoms arising from neurological disorders. Common symptoms include vision loss, double vision, and many others. I also see patients with inflammatory and autoimmune conditions of the nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitis optica, and others. I believe that open communication and trust are the foundation of a healthy doctor-patient relationship. I enjoy listening to and learning from my patients and feel very privileged to be involved with their care. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with family and exploring outdoors.

Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any co-payments, co–insurances, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with Duke, your out of pocket liability may be higher. We will contact you regarding your coverage and patient liability. If you are uninsured, learn more about our financial assistance policy.
