About

Bio

I graduated from BYU in 1987 with a BS degree in Microbiology. Seeing that there was not much future in this I applied to medical school, graduating from Tulane University Medical school in 1991. I had a great interest in " eyes" mainly because of a n older brother that was a practicing and from other brothers that convinced me that the life style of an orthopedic surgeon was too busy. Three brothers practice orthopedics currently. After a hot summer in Phoenix doing an internship , I was accepted to an ocular pathology program at the University of Utah just before it became the Moran Eye Center. I then completed a residency in Ophthalmology at SUNY at Buffalo. Since this time, 15 years ago, I have been in private practice in a General Ophthalmogy practice. I am happily married with 5 children, two of whom are in college. We spend our time watching basketball, soccer games and enjoying dance concerts. Recently i have been involved the scouting program (BSA) andhave trained many adults how to run an effective program. I do enjoy the outdoors and almost all sports Residency in Buffalo, NY at SUNY, ocular pathology fellowship at the University of Utah under Mick Mamali

Tell me about it. I have seen many specialists. I think I am starting menopause but it is difficult to find a doctor who will believe me because of my age. That is why I turn to HealthTap. Thank you!
