About Me

Welcome to my Web page. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to care for you and address your concerns about your eyes. I hope this page will offer you some insight into my practice.


I am a native Californian, born and raised in San Diego. My parents were both school teachers. I became a physician through an evolutionary process, starting as a chemist, then becoming a pharmacist, and then attending medical school. I never really planned anything or experienced a life-changing event. I simply followed open doors that led me to ophthalmology and my subspecialty in conditions of the retina.

About my practice

Our practice is a busy specialty service. We deal with complex eye conditions that require multiple diagnostic and treatment modalities. We treat every person as a unique individual and strive to develop personal relationships with everyone.

How I thrive

I believe in a balanced approach to life. Although I think hard work is a virtue, one must tend to his or her own physical health and spiritual needs as well. I try to engage in strenuous physical exercise as often as possible, but I also set aside time for deep thought.
