Being an ophthalmologist is a wonderful privilege, and having the opportunity to care for patients’ vision is truly an honor. I strive to take excellent care of my patients and include them in the decision making process. I enjoy taking care of patients of all ages but have a particular interest in providing eye care to children. My particular focus is on performing surgeries around the eyes on the extraocular muscles, eyelids, tear drainage system, and other orbital structures. I work with a number of excellent surgeons who perform surgeries inside the eyes and happily refer my patients to these providers when their pathology lies outside of my area of expertise. My main goal is to ensure that my patients get the best care possible.
