"As an ophthalmologist, I am frequently consulted by other doctors about the need for surgical correction of various eye diseases. In advising patients, I draw upon my more than 30 years of clinical experience, fellowship training in corneal surgery and a conservative medical philosophy. After listening to patients and performing a thorough examination, I typically offer a step-ladder approach, outlining therapeutic options, thereby allowing my patients to participate in their care."
