Board-Certified Ophthalmologist

"My father developed a significant, recurring inflammatory problem with his eyes when I was a teenager. He underwent several surgeries and treatments, and I was scared he would go blind. I remember thinking that I didn’t want other children to go through that scenario and vowed to figure out a way to prevent this condition from affecting others. I ended up working in the lab of my father’s eye surgeon and through those experiences I knew, once I entered medical school, that I would become an eye surgeon.

I love interacting with so many people from different walks of life each day. Whether they have a sight-threatening condition like glaucoma, need cataract surgery, want LASIK, or just need a new supply of contacts, it’s really satisfying to be in a position to help people see better.

I try my hardest to listen to each patient 'with my eyes,' and to treat them as if they were my own family — with care and compassion. I want each patient to leave knowing that their questions were heard and addressed and that we have a solution to a problem, or we are working hard to find that solution.

I want to give each patient the best possible vision. I have the privilege as an eye surgeon to serve others, to listen to their needs, and to do my best to help them see better."
