Cataract and Cornea Surgery
Patient Care Philosophy
“I understand that for many patients, a visit to the eye doctor can be cause for some anxiety or even stress. It is my responsibility to make the experience as pleasant and informative as possible. I care deeply about my patients’ vision and comfort, so I want to spend the time necessary to make sure that they understand their diagnosis and treatment plan. My goal is to work as a team with my patients to ensure the healthiest eyes possible.”
