“I have always found helping people to be uplifting. I like listening to peoples' problems and figuring out how I can use my ability to help them. That's why I became an ophthalmologist. After over 34 years in practice, I still feel gratified when I hear people say, 'I see better now, thanks to you.’”

Constantly Seeking Knowledge

“When I was in college, I was always interested in learning more than just what was required for the course. Today, I’m the same way in my practice. I constantly strive to learn all the latest techniques for the benefit of my patients. As a result, I was the first ophthalmologist in Carroll County to perform radial keratotomy, laser vision correction for myopia, laser assisted cataract surgery and phacoemulsification for cataracts.”

I chose the profession because it enables me to affect the quality of a patient's life and how they function day to day. It's very rewarding to know that I've made it easier for someone to read a book, watch a movie, or see a loved one. "

My Educations Becomes Your Education

“The best treatment for any condition is patient education. I have learned that the more a patient learns about his or her particular condition, whether it’s myopia or a progressive disease, the more effective the treatment. We all are more inclined to follow a regimen if we know not only what we’re being treated for, but why. Taking the time to share my knowledge with patients makes a big difference in their care.”
