"I adore being an eye doctor because I get to provide a service to people that is health improving and can be life altering. With the amazing technology of new implant lenses and surgical tools, I can often exceed a patient’s expectations."
"Ophthalmology provides me with continual stimulation. There are always new and interesting people to meet and a variety of diagnostic and surgical challenges. Learning about new research and innovations in the field keeps me motivated to always try to improve care for patients."
"One of my passions is the prevention of eye diseases. After medical school I did a Masters in Public Health and Preventative Ophthalmology. The prevention of disease and disability is very rewarding. My surgical passion is cataract and LASIK surgery. Successful surgery gives an enormous sense of personal satisfaction and accomplishment. I am able to use my physical skill and my intellectual skills at the same time."
"When a patient gives me a hug and says 'thank you,' I feel great joy in a job well done. It is enormously satisfying to know my efforts are acknowledged and appreciated and that I have made a difference in someone’s life."
