About

Bio

I am an academic ophthalmologist on the faculty of Northwestern University Medical School, where I have taught since 1994. I maintain an active practice and focus on corneal and external diseases, although I also practice general ophthalmology.

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.
