Enjoy Your Visits with a Doctor Who Genuinely Cares

32 Years Experience • Trusted by Tens of Thousands of Patients

You Deserve A Pleasant Experience with
a Retina Doctor You Can Trust

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably been to a doctor’s office that felt unwelcoming and detached. You have likely wished that you could find a very accomplished specialist who can not only manage your retinal problem, but also treat you with warmth and respect.

In our practice we believe you deserve both and we’ve made it our mission to provide just that. You should never feel like you’re not listened to or talked down to. This is why we have built our practice on a solid foundation of respect, kindness and comfort. For the past 32 years I have treated tens of thousands of patients with compassion and competence. Our practice is run in an organized and streamlined manner that is focused on providing a reassuring experience for all patients. Everyone in our practice will take time to truly listen first and foremost to your concerns. All of us will talk to you in understandable language that will help you understand your options and your plan of treatment.

Most new patients are truly impressed when they see how much warmth they experience in our office. We are not only professional, but also focused upon your sense of wellbeing. You will find that we are consistently pleasant and inviting as a committed and devoted team. We invite you to schedule a consultation so that you may experience this for yourself. We remain always open to self-referrals and second opinions!
