About

Bio

I am a comprehensive ophthalmologist, practicing in the St Louis area. I am on the teaching faculty of the Washington School of Medicine, working with residents in their clinics and operating room. I specialize in refractive cataract surgery, using advanced technology intraocular lenses to provide patients with excellent postoperative results.

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.
