Patient Care Philosophy

I am a clinician-educator and I have a passion for teaching fellows, residents and medical students.

As a specialist in oculofacial plastic surgery, I am dedicated to providing the best medical and surgical care to my patients. I believe that outstanding medical care should focus on treating the disease as well as the individual patient.

Personal Interests

I enjoy running, biking, skiing, swimming, cooking, photography and especially college football.
