"As an ophthalmologist, I understand the importance patients feel about their vision and eyes. I feel very honored when patients choose to have me help them care for such an important part of their lives. Although I have an excellent educational and research background, it is not enough. I strive to provide the most attentive, thorough, and compassionate eye care and surgery possible."
