Eye Institute

My goal is to provide excellent clinical and surgical care for uveitis and glaucoma patients. Both of these conditions are chronic and I value the relationship that I am fortunate to build with my patients. I believe that open communication is at the core of good medical care. I want my patients to fully understand their condition as well as all the treatment options available, so that they may make the best decisions for their care.
