Personal Statement

Our mission in Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus is to provide all of our patients and their families with consistently excellent, thoughtful, and compassionate care. Our team of physicians, support staff, and physicians-in-training stands ready for the challenges of pediatric eye disease and ocular misalignment. From educating a family on the nature of their child's eye condition, to performing strabismus surgery, to imparting knowledge to the next generation of physicians, my job provides daily challenges and rewards. I find it a perpetual honor to be entrusted with my patients' eyes and vision.
