While medical education and research are very rewarding, my primary focus is to provide thoughtful and compassionate individualized care. I pride myself on being approachable and caring, and do my best to provide understandable explanations to my patients. The patient and physician are a team, working together towards a common goal. I believe in sub-specialized medicine, and for that reason, confine my practice to the eyelid, orbit (eye socket) and lacrimal (tear) systems. Common conditions include: eyelid malposition, eyelid tumors, skin lesions and styes, eyelid reconstruction, drooping eyelids, excess eyelid skin, rejuvenation (botox, fillers, aesthetic surgery), orbital tumors, Graves' Disease, tearing, and trauma to theses systems.
