I chose to specialize in vitreoretinal surgery because it is a beautiful mixture of both medical and surgical disease. I enjoy how retinal surgery embodies the most sophisticated microsurgical technology to date. This service is a multifaceted, medical and surgical treatment program equipped to evaluate and manage all types of adult retinal disease. As a provider, I strive to be foremost compassionate, patient, and honest, which allows me to give each patient the time, attention, and information that he or she deserves. This ultimately helps the patient-physician interaction become more effective and therapeutic. My goal is to give each patient education about the disease process, standard of care therapies, and information on current literature and important clinical trials.
