Best part of my work: Empowering patients to make choices about their care.
Why I became an ophthalmologist: It is an opportunity to use new technology to make a real difference in patients' lives.
What I tell my friends and family: Eat when hungry, sleep when tired, and take time to think.
How I spend my free time: Golfing or goofing around with family and friends.
What patients say about me: I speak with common sense and use examples they can understand.
Favorite health tip: The mind is the single most important part of health and healing.
Practice philosophy: 90% of the time a good history will tell us what's wrong, even in ophthalmology.
