My goal is to provide personalized patient care to prevent vision loss from uveitis. Eye-related inflammatory disease may be limited to the eye or be associated with systemic inflammatory conditions or infectious diseases. As such, I believe in a collaborative approach to treatment and work closely with physicians from multiple disciplines to care for my patients. I have an active interest in studying therapeutic agents in uveitis and in using advances in our scientific knowledge to better patient care.
