“The field of ophthalmology was appealing to me because it involves highly specialized procedures that can make a positive impact in people’s’ lives. Being able to diagnose and treat a whole host of eye diseases and abnormalities is both personally and professionally rewarding to me.
Next, I pride myself on delivering innovative, proven vision solutions with a human touch. I’m a patient’s advocate; I spend the time to educate them on their condition and their treatment options and encourage them to take an active role in their care. This interactive approach helps make the whole process a positive one for patients and their families.”
