What is your typical process for working with a new patient?

We welcome new patients to our practice and have them complete a full medical and surgical history. Eye visits are either routine annual exams or patients who are coming to us because they have a particular problem or symptom that is bothering them. For a problem focused exam, we gather all the history and decide if a new treatment is necessary or if we need further testing prior to choosing a treatment option.

What advice would you give a patient looking to find a provider in your specialty?

For all specialties, I believe that you must feel completely comfortable talking to that person because that will ultimately create a relationship based on trust and respect.

What inspired your passion for your profession?

I come from a long line of physicians and both my father and my uncle are Ophthalmologists. I have always loved the ability to cure someone of a particular problem through surgery.

What treatments are you most excited to offer?

I love the passion people have after receiving new sight through either LASIK or Cataract Surgery.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a patient?

Having my children talk excitedly about how great their vision was after I performed LASIK.
