As a grade-schooler in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I bought a book about the science of vision and have been interested in eyes ever since. I have always been good working with my hands, building and driving soapbox derby cars as a boy. So it seemed right that I became an eye surgeon. I joined the Medical College Faculty in 1988 and have been doing patient care, research, and teaching since then. But taking care of people’s retinal problems is my personal passion and number one priority. Recently, I chose to concentrate my efforts on medical and laser treatments for retinal diseases, and no longer do retinal surgery.
My approach is to identify each patient’s goals and try to meet them as best as I can. And because of my long experience, and a desire to stay at the leading edge of ophthalmic knowledge, I believe I can offer exceptional care to my patients.
