About

Bio

I am a board certified eye surgeon practicing ophthalmology in Boise Idaho. I've completed fellowship training in glaucoma and ophthalmic pathology. I have a tremendous passion for my profession and compassion for my patients. I also have been a world class and national wild water kayak champion and still compete as a runner in regional races. I am active in numerous athletic events, such as mountain and road biking, Nordic and alpine skiing, tennis, crossfit, rock climbing. I also promote healthy lifestyles through my interests in exercise physiology and preventative medicine.

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.
