Meet the Doctors


I am a busy clinician who loves interacting with patients. I spend the majority of my time seeing patients in clinic and performing a variety of eye surgeries, including cataract surgery, anterior segment surgery, and corneal transplantation. I also spend time taking care of patients with dry eyes and performing new procedures for patients with dry eyes. I genuinely love what I do and am fortunate to treat patients of all ages and severity - whether it is removing their cataracts, performing eyelid surgery, or working in a multidisciplinary approach to treat their complex corneal disease. Outside of work, I like to spend as much time as possible with my family. I also enjoy cooking, playing sports and watching sports.
