Our group is committed to providing the most cutting edge care available in the world for our patients. We believe that the patient knowledge is critical in understanding their eye disease and being an integral part of the solutions for it. Only in an environment such as ours with exceptional patient satisfaction ratings and clinical outcomes can this type of care thrive and be commonplace.
I enjoy playing tennis and spending time with my wife and children.
