Care Philosophy

Beyond providing state-of-the-art, evidenced-based medical and surgical treatments, I am committed to individualizing care. I truly enjoy educating and empowering patients and families to understand and be part of every step of the treatment plan.

I am privileged to provide care for a wide range of pediatric eye diseases, as well as treat complex pediatric and adult eye misalignment. Improving vision in childhood is a priceless investment in the rest of a child’s life. For both adults and children with eye misalignment, I provide corrective surgery which can improve both how they see the world and how they see themselves.

I find great joy in being a pediatric ophthalmologist and strabismus surgeon. I am also passionate about clinically focused research to advance patient care, and am dedicated to outreach with a special interest in international medical missions. From examining and talking with you in the clinic to performing surgeries and prescribing treatments, I look forward to getting to know you and your family.
