Why did you choose optometry as your profession?
After being injured in the US Navy, I needed a new career. I had always been interested in optometry as I have been wearing glasses since age 5. I thought I’d fit right in and have never looked back. I’m in my 18th year practicing now.
What do you want your patients to know about your approach to care?
Most importantly, I will always listen to you. Always. I will always take another question. I take patient care personally. It is my responsibility to keep your eyes as healthy as possible. I’ll answer your questions, no matter how small. Lastly, if there is something wrong with your eyes, I won’t ignore it or sweep it under the rug; I’ll treat the condition and make your eyes the best they can be.
