Patient Care Philosophy:

I have been serving the eye care needs of patients in the Milwaukee area since 1993. Patient care begins by creating a relationship of trust and mutual respect. From there, determining the best course of treatment is a multi-step process: listening to the patient, evaluating their condition, educating them on treatment options, and formulating a plan of action suited to the particular individual and their support system. At times, this means referring the patient to a different provider for more specialized care. Being part of the Medical College of Wisconsin affords my patients access to a world class team of subspecialists in all areas of eyecare. My focus is on ensuring that the patients' vision needs are met.
