We believe that patients who understand their diagnoses are more engaged in their care and will have better outcomes in the end. By practicing the highest ethical standards of care, offering only well-reasoned and accurate diagnoses, then ensuring that patients understand their problem and treatment, a partnership of care with patients is formed. This partnership of care fosters healing, understanding, and lasting doctor-patient relationships. This can only be done if the doctor spends adequate time with each patient.
In other ophthalmology practices, patients spend most of their time with technicians and other staff members, with the doctor making a short appearance at the end of the visit. Our office is different. Patients visiting our office will spend most of their time with the doctor, who personally ensures the quality of the experience from beginning to end.
