My goal is to provide excellent clinical and surgical care for both adult and pediatric glaucoma patients. I believe in a patient-centered approach to care with the patient being the driver of their medical decision-making. My goal is to form a relationship with patients that allows for open communication so that patients fully understand their disease and options for care.
