Ophthalmology is a field that is rapidly changing and advancing. Many conditions that recently would have caused visual loss are now be treated successfully. I believe that patients should have easy access to the best current treatments. This always involves listening and incorporating patient needs, goals, abilities and concerns to develop a clinical plan. I find the treatment of patients with multiple problems (for Instance cataract and glaucoma or glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy) particularly rewarding.

I grew up in a small community north of Chicago, where my father was the first, and for many years the only, ophthalmologist. His patients were very appreciative of his efforts and that made a big impression on me. I received my undergraduate education at Williams College in Massachusetts and medical school at University of Illinois where I met my wife, who is a local pediatrician. My mother's family was from Milwaukee, so when I had the chance to do my residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin it seemed like a natural fit. Since graduating I have been at the same location in Racine, where I have also continued to teach cataract surgery to the residents. I am very excited to be joining the Medical College of Wisconsin as full time. Our practice will remain in Racine and we plan to bring the best of academic medicine to our community.

Outside of medicine, my interests include reading (always discussing good books!), getting outside for running, skiing, biking, and travel.

Excellent experience Dr Platt was fantastic
My appointment was exactly what one might wish for. Friendly and knowledgeable people who treat you with kindness and respect. No one could ask for more.
I have had this treatment at a few places (different doctors, different health care systems) and this place and this doctor are the best at making me feel less anxiety and stress about having the procedure done than at any of other places. It may not be the flashiest of places or the newest building but the entire staff, from intake through doctors make you feel respected as a person and cared for in terms of your health. Very comfortable with unfortunately the frequency of visits I have there.
Dr. Platt is a Great, Great doctor and person and I would recommend him to everyone.
I am extremely happy that I can get care here, close to my home. The location, facility & ease of parking so close to the building mean alot to me. Above all, the expertise and knowledge Dr. Platt possesses has kept my vision healthy for me. The staff is very friendly & professional.
