Philosophy of Care
"My practice is very comprehensive. I see patients of all ages, beginning with newborns. My intention is to treat every patient as if they were a family member. It is important to me that my patients feel informed about their conditions and their treatment options. Through conversation, I create a safe space, where my patients feel comfortable and put their trust in me.
I take a thoughtful approach to the diagnosis and medical needs of my patients. For this reason, I counsel my patients in treatment options that are the safest and fastest ways to improve their vision."
