Director of LASIK and Premium Surgical Services
"I have always wanted to have a positive impact on the lives of others. Helping them see clearly has certaininly filled that need. However, with the advance of Laser and other ophthalmologic technology, individuals who have previously been seeing clearly with glasses and contact lenses are now seeing better than they ever had, without any additional correction. This "wows" not only the individual patients and their families, but me as well. I am honored that as part of the Katzen Eye Team, I am part of this miracle..."
