In his own words:
Ophthalmology is a rewarding profession and the satisfaction I get from
my career comes from the relationships I build with my patients. I enjoy
taking my time to get to know them and learn about their lives and interests
as well as discussing their eye problems. I have also found that this
is what makes me a better physician. By slowing things down, and really
listening to my patients I am able to pick up other physical issues that
need addressing. Issues that may not have come up if I hadn’t given
my patients the time to have these important conversations.
