I am glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It is very important that you feel comfortable with your physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I was drawn to ophthalmology as a child. My father was a member of the Lions Club, and, as a child, I visited Lions Club eye camps with him. During these visits, I saw how a person’s life could be improved by having better vision. As an ophthalmologist, I am able to help members improve and preserve their vision. For the past three years, I have volunteered at a Lions Club Eye Hospital in Sri Lanka, which provides eye care for the underprivileged.
I received my ophthalmology training at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. The philosophy of the Mayo Clinic is that patients come first. I have tried to incorporate this same philosophy to my ophthalmology team at Kaiser Permanente. My practice centers on the diagnosis and treatment of eye conditions. The surgical procedures I perform include cataract surgery, pterygium surgery, eyelid surgery, and laser treatment of diabetic retinopathy.
Maintaining a balanced life is very important. I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children. I play tennis on a regular basis. I am an ardent fan of UCLA basketball. Every year for the past few years, I have volunteered my time to a Lions Club Eye Hospital in Sri Lanka, which provides eye care to low-income patients. I enjoy going on this annual mission trip, and the patients there are very grateful for the care provided.
