"I believe it takes a team to fully care for a patient's visual and ocular health. Therefore, I wanted to be part of that winning lineup! My rewarding position on the roster is that I can work closely with other eye care professionals while developing a customized plan specifically tailored to my patient's visual needs and long-term ocular health. I find it quite rewarding to help patients better understand the tremendous impact vision has on their daily lives. When patients better understand the tremendous impact vision has on their daily lives, they can truly appreciate the benefit of ongoing eye care. "
