I consider it both a privilege and a blessing to be able to help my patients see better.
ABOUT THE DOCTOR
My decision to become an ophthalmologist was influenced by observing a truly special mentor, my father. During medical school, I had the opportunity to shadow my father and to witness the long-lasting relationships he created with his patients and their families, as well as the rewarding and important role he played in improving and preserving vision. I am grateful that I have had the great fortune of choosing a career that brings immense satisfaction and provides a cherished service to others.
