I went into medicine because of a wonderful childhood relationship with my pediatrician. I decided that when I grew up, I wanted to be just like her. My visit to an ophthalmologist's office as a college student introduced me to this field. The equipment was so amazing. Suddenly, with a few clicks, I could see clearly. It was something as simple as needing glasses. I found it so interesting.
My glaucoma patients are why I decided to specialize in glaucoma. I saw them often and developed a strong bond. Although there isn't a cure, glaucoma can be managed very well.
I'm concerned about each patient as a person and with their overall medical health. I give each patient my utmost attention. I also believe in educating my patients and really making them a part of their healthcare management. We work together as a team.
It's great to be part of Ohio State. It is an amazing academic institution. We're always trying to develop new techniques to better understand and manage different types of glaucoma.
