Neuro-Ophthalmology, Neurology

Accepting New Patients


Professional Statement

My practice integrates old-fashioned history-taking and a hands-on, detailed examination with state-of-the-art diagnostic testing customized to each patient’s concerns. Patients are often referred to a neuro-ophthalmologist after seeing other providers with no clear explanation of what has caused their symptoms. I personally take a detailed history from my patients, listen to their concerns and try to answer any questions. Our goal is to work together to find the cause of their problem and appropriate treatment.
