Ophthalmology, Glaucoma, Cataract surgery


One of the most enjoyable parts of being an Ophthalmologist and Glaucoma Specialist is educating my patients about their disease and the many treatment modalities available. The more information a patient has, the better they can advocate for themselves and their general health. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to assist in providing up-to-date, accurate, and relevant health information through Verywell.
