Get to Know Me

What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

I am a comprehensive ophthalmologist, specializing in medical and surgical eyecare. I use the most up to date technology available to diagnose and treat eye diseases including cataracts, glaucoma, dry eyes, macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease and many others.

What techniques or procedures do you use in your practice?

I have performed thousands of cataract operations using the latest techniques and technology available. I am skilled in the implantation of specialized/premium lens implants to correct a full range of near, intermediate and distance vision as well as astigmatism.

In the office setting, I utilize state-of-the art ophthalmic diagnostic tools to aid in the management of ocular disease

Describe some of your professional highlights.

I am a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Penn State, where I also graduated from medical school. As an undergraduate, I served as a White House Intern. Throughout medical school and residency, I was involved in research which has been published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at international conferences. I have been named a "Top Doctor" by Bergen Magazine and in my previous practice, I was voted the "Best Ophthalmologist" by readers of the Annapolis Capital newspaper.

What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

I take a highly personal and detailed approach to help my patients achieve their desired visual outcomes. When performing cataract surgery, I help my patients select the most appropriate type of vision correction based on the health of their eyes, their visual needs and expectations.

We are fortunate to have the latest ophthalmic diagnostic equpiment in our office for delivering high-quality care

What inspired you to become a doctor?

I was very interested in medicine from a young age. My mother was a hospital social worker who encouraged me to volunteer at her hospital. My uncle was an ophthalmologist whose enthusiasm for his chosen field was infectious. I feel so fortunate to be able to share in the joy of a patient whose vision has been restored following cataract surgery. The nearly immediate impact is extremely gratifying.
