Why did you want to become a doctor?

There were a lot of physicians in my family. I saw how much they were respected in the community and how much their patients appreciated what they did for them.  I wanted a career that would give me the kind of satisfaction that they experienced. 


What sets you apart from other doctors in your field?

I think for my level of experience, I know as much as any other ophthalmologist, but I think I haven an inherent ability to put patients at ease and allow them to trust me. 

What are your 5 tips for living longer?
