About

Bio

I am a comprehensive ophthalmologist with 20 years experience. Teaching at Kings County Hospital part-time keeps my clinical and surgical skills sharp, considering the challenging cases that present there. I am devoted only to medical/surgical ophthalmology- I no longer manage glasses or contacts. I have a reputation for honesty and ethics- the idea of exposing a patient to unnecessary exams, treatments or procedures for the sake of making more money violates everything I believe in as a human being. Period.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
