I am a board certified ophthalmologist that specializes in comprehensive ophthatlmology, diagnosing and treating a wide range of ocular diseases, such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, dry eye syndrome, ptosis, strabismus and diabetic retinopathy. I have been in practice for thirteen years after finishing my residency at Doheny Eye Institute at the University of Southern California. I attained a US Air Force scholarship for medical school and completed duty as both a flight surgeon and as the director of ophthalmology services for five years at Wright Patterson air base, Ohio. I served over seas as a member of the head and neck trauma team and as the ophthalmology consultant in Iraq. After my active duty time I enhanced my cataract and refractive surgery skills in private practice in Cincinnati, Ohio. Before moving to Marietta, Ohio, I was fortunate to help establish a new eye department for St. George's hospital in Christchurch, New Zealand. A wonderful experience.
I love to teach and have held professorships at multiple medical schools. I am currently a clinical professor of ophthalmology at Ohio University. In addition, I currently serve my country in the Ohio Air National Guard.
