Eye Institute

As an ophthalmologist, the only thing more important to me than treating eyes is treating patients. My approach to patient care starts with educating a patient about their particular eye disorder, followed by working with the patient to formulate a treatment plan that will best suit them. I am well connected to a large pool of excellent ophthalmology subspecialists at the Eye Institute and never hesitate to refer my patients to other physicians should the appropriate treatment lie outside my scope of practice. My patients' well-being and the best possible care for their eyes are always my top priorities.
