WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am an ophthalmologist that takes care of patients with a variety of corneal and vision problems. I perform specialized surgeries such as corneal transplantation, refractive Lasik surgery, and cataract surgery. I also treat patients with ocular surface tumors and cancers. Working with oncology specialists at Duke, I treat patients to help them overcome their cancer. I enjoy getting to know my patients and helping them with their eye problems, whether it be dry eye, cataracts and corneal disease, or eye cancer. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my twin boys, traveling, and cooking.

I aim to improve prevention, early diagnosis, and better treatment of these eye cancers.
