Board Certified in Ophthalmology
Philosophy on patient care:
I am an advocate of patient-centered care where the patient is a key participant in his or her care and the physician acts as a leader of a multidisciplinary team in a holistic approach to that care.
Clinically, I focus on comprehensive eye care, cataract surgery, including refractive cataract surgery, laser treatments, including glaucoma lasers, using technology to bring eye disease screening to patients.
My interests include personal fitness, epicurean cooking, outdoor sports and Intel International Science Fairs.
