Associate Professor

"I feel it is important to establish a trusting relationship with my patients. Because glaucoma is a chronic disease, I want my patients to know I am with them for the long haul. We are going to have many discussions regarding the pros and cons of different treatments, whether it is medical, surgical or laser. If we are able to trust each other, we will make good decisions regarding their treatment that will enable them to continue to have good vision for many years."
