Dr. David is a lover of learning. He craves continued growth, challenges and new experiences. This passionate thread runs through his medical career and his personal pursuits. He was drawn to medicine from a very early age. When it was time to choose a discipline in medical school, it was truly a challenge because he loved almost all the disciplines.
Dr. David believes that EHNW provides superior medical services because of the quality of every person that works for the organization. “I truly believe the sum is greater than its constituent parts because of what we get from each other.” From the staff to the doctors, everyone has high standards and team spirit that make the organization excel. Dr. David, one of two founding doctors of EyeHealth Northwest, was a trailblazer in providing cataract surgery on international medical mission trips. It all began in the early 1980’s when attending a Northwest Medical Teams meeting about doctors who were fixing cleft palates. Afterwards, Dr. David identified an unmet need and saw an opportunity to give. They knew that cataract surgery is an ideal procedure for a medical mission because it could offer dramatic results in improved vision with only one medical visit. Dr. David has continued to make regular medical mission trips. In the last six years he has traveled to Guatemala and worked closely with Hospital de la Familia.
