“It has been one the greatest joys of my life to help people maintain the health of their eyes and to teach others the practice of ophthalmology. I enjoy restoring sight, maintaining sight and educating people in the care of their eyes. I love sharing my appreciation for the miracle of vision with others. It is an honor and privilege when people trust you to provide care for their eyes and I am grateful for this opportunity.”
