1. Why did you become an ophthalmologist?

“My father definitely sparked my interest in ophthalmology. At an early age, I remember watching him operate. He received such great satisfaction and joy in ophthalmology. That is when I realized I wanted to pursue this career.”

2. What in ophthalmology inspires your passion?

"I find great passion in the surgical portion of ophthalmology because the results are so immediate. The day after surgery, I am like a child waiting to open his presents."

3. Why should I choose you to be my eye doctor?

"The reason I believe why patients should feel comfortable here is because I have done such a high volume of surgery which has provided me with vast experiences. Besides my experience, I always promise to give my patients an honest evaluation."

4. What makes your practice different from the rest?

"Our courteous and friendly staff is definitely what sets us apart from the rest.  They are knowledgeable and go the extra step for each and every patient.  They have been trained to take the patient through each and every step before and after surgery."
