Acerca de mí
I knew I was going to become a retina specialist the very first time I picked up an ophthalmoscope and examined a fellow classmate's retina during my second year in medical school. I have always been fascinated by how complex the retina is and how it makes the magic of seeing a reality. After completing medical school at Washington University in St. Louis, I finished my residency there at the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences. Next, I joined the National Retina Institute for a two-year surgical retina fellowship and stayed there for several more years as attending physician where I was involved in several retina related research projects and surgical training of new retina fellows. In 2016, I decided to move to Atlanta and join the Kaiser Permanente Ophthalmology Department serving as a surgical retina specialist.
Acerca de mi práctica médica
My practice primarily includes taking care of our members with retinal diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration or retinal detachment. I believe timely and correct diagnosis and treatment is the key for a good visual outcome. Frequent follow-up examination is also very important. The field of retina is advancing rapidly and currently we have many therapeutic and surgical options available for our members with retinal conditions.
