“My philosophy regarding patient care is that the patient always comes first, no matter the time or the setting. I look forward to interacting with patients, listening to their concerns, and taking care of their illnesses in an individualized manner. I chose a career as a retina surgeon because of the positive impact we have on our patients and the difference we make in their lives.”
