About

Bio

I am a surgeon who specializes in Cataract and Refractve Surgery as well as the treatment of Glaucoma and disease of the ocular surface. My background was in mathematical physics at the University of Colorado, medical school at the University of California at Irvine, Internship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and residency in ophthalmology at University of California, Irvine. I am a classically trained guitarist who also dabbles in blues and jazz. I was the head of the gymnastic program at UC Irvine while I was there. I am dedicated to performing the most accurate refractive surgery possible. I tailor this to the needs and limitations of each patient. The use of intraoperative aberrometry and the Wavelight Eye Q excimer laser allows for great outcomes.

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.
