Dr. Dave is a specialist in cornea and refractive surgery. She also practices comprehensive ophthalmology and sees patients with a wide range of eye conditions. Dr. Dave has a deep sense of compassion in her medical practice. Upon meeting her, patients immediately appreciate her warmth and positive energy. “I think what patients want and appreciate the most is that we give them our full attention and time. I focus on really listening to them and try to give the best possible care.
Prior to coming to EHNW, Dr. Dave traveled to Nepal, India, Argentina and Samoa to learn and observe different techniques in other countries during her medically training. Now, she is excited to bring her medical expertise and skills to those in great need internationally. Cataract surgery lends itself very well to helping those in developing countries who would otherwise face a lifetime of blindness. Many of the EHNW have volunteered on international medical missions, and Dr. Dave looks forward to being part of a trip in the future.
What is most remarkable about Dr. Dave is her humility given her many talents and achievements. “My dad is from India, but I was completely raised as an Iowan.” This mix of small-town upbringing with ancestral roots abroad has helped form her humble roots and build a strong foundation that has enabled her curiosity, interests and heart to branch out internationally.
