"I was drawn to the field of ophthalmology because it involves improving or preserving vision through the use of innovative surgical procedures. I find it both personally and professionally rewarding to be able to make a positive difference in the lives of my patients.

"My treatment recommendations are always based on sound research and proven results. And to ensure my patients are informed, comfortable and confident in the care they receive, I explain their individual vision needs and treatment options in a manner they will easily understand."
