MY PATIENT CARE PHILOSOPHY
All patients are personally seen by me. After a thorough eye exam, I discuss the findings with specific attention to the following: cataracts, glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration, high blood pressure, dry eyes and allergies.
I take an individualized approach to each patient, keeping in mind their age, visual needs, and expectations. I talk to my patients about their general overall health, with particular focus on actual or potential eye problems. If a patient expresses concerns about a family history of a specific eye disease, we thoroughly discuss that as well.
I engage patients in a lifestyle discussion with special emphasis on work, sports and other activities. I then make recommendations appropriate to the patient’s needs and prescription on the best optical correction: whether glasses, contact lenses or surgery involving LASIK or intraocular implants.
