Ophthalmology: Corneal Disease
Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this opportunity to tell you about my practice and myself. I joined Kaiser Permanente in 1990 as an ophthalmologist specializing in cornea and external eye diseases and surgery. I've enjoyed practicing at Kaiser Permanente and look forward to helping you care for your eyes.
I came to San Diego from New York in 1989 to do a cornea fellowship at UC San Diego and to join my wife, who was a United States Navy doctor. We loved San Diego so much we stayed. My wife and I both grew up in Brooklyn but didn't meet until medical school. My career started as a civil engineer, but I felt I wanted to do more and applied to medical school. As an engineer, I have always enjoyed solving challenging problems, which led me to subspecialize in the cornea, which deals with the more complex problems of the front part of the eye. I perform many types of eye surgery, including corneal transplants, cataract surgery, surgery for growths on the eye, and surgery to repair eye injuries.
As a corneal specialist, I regularly deal with many complicated and urgent problems. I make myself available to my members and my colleagues who need my expertise, no matter how busy I am.
Being with my family is the top priority in my life. I play tennis and ride a bike to stay in shape and do my best to eat right. Computers and photography are my main hobbies.
