Opening Eye Consultants 14 years ago was the realization of my dream to create a patient-centered, outcomes-focused medical practice where I got to know my patients and collaborate with them on the most advanced surgical care available.  We love when patients tell us we are unlike any medical office they’ve ever visited.  Goal achieved!
