About me

The main reason I became an ophthalmologist is because it is very satisfying to help people with visual difficulties to restore their vision. As Johann W. Goethe said "The organ with which the world has been understood is the eye". It is a challenge and an honor to have the skill and knowledge necessary to successfully treat my patients. Honesty and accountability are the pillars on which my practice is founded
