I am a board-certified physician specializing in ophthalmology with a masters of medical management.
Hometown: Grand Forks, ND
Best part of my work: Taking people from a place of fear and concern about their vision and upcoming surgery to a new place of joy and relief with their improved vision post-operation.
Why I became an ophthalmologist: To make a difference in people's lives and to impact their health in a positive and healing way.
Personal interests: Active in South Suburban Evangelical Free Church in Apple Valley with numerous activities that impact the south metro area.
What I tell my friends and family: Wear safety glasses whenever working in an area or on a project where something could fly off and strike your eye.
What patients say about me: I take time to listen to their concerns and present their options and am available for further discussion after the visit.
Favorite health tip: Every person should have an eye exam. Wear protective glasses when working in an area where something could strike your eyes.
Practice philosophy: To improve vision and facilitate healing.
