I am committed to providing individualized and compassionate care to my patients. I feel it is important to first educate my patients about their eye disorders and then discuss any goals or expectations we both may have. With this mutual foundation, we can then work together to formulate a treatment plan for the best patient outcomes. Effective communication is at the core of this endeavor, and it allows me to build trusting and lasting relationships with my patients. I feel incredibly privileged to practice ophthalmology, a field that carries significant impact in our patients’ daily lives, and my goal is to continue to earn that privilege every day.
