Diplomate of the American Board of Optometry

In practice since 1988

“I remember getting my first pair of eyeglasses at the age of 7 and being amazed at how clearly I could see. That was the moment I knew that I wanted to be an optometrist. Also, my optometrist was my father, and I was exposed to and very aware of the fulfillment he got from his job. He loved his career, and that was because he had the honor and privilege of helping people.

“More than 20 years after first becoming an optometrist, I understand better than ever how my father felt and why he loved his job. The best part of being an eye doctor is getting to talk and interact with people. My patients are my friends, really, and it’s rewarding to know that I’m helping them maintain good vision and healthy eyes. I truly care about them — and for them — in the same way I care about and for my own family. This is why my primary objective is to always give you my very best. I listen carefully. I explain things fully and in terms you can understand. I don’t rush and take the time to do things right. I strive to give you 110%, because I feel strongly that you deserve the best care possible.”
