After having had the privilege of providing eye care to my patients for almost 40 years, I have decided to retire. As you can imagine, it is a big decision and a big change, but it will allow me to spend more time with my family.
During my years at Ophthalmic Consultants, I served as both a partner to the Practice and director of Retina services. As I looked to the future, I gave great thought about my current patients and to future patients and the need for ongoing high quality eye care. I also considered the future of Ophthalmic Consultants and the wonderful people who work there today and those who will find opportunity there in the future.
To prepare for my retirement, I joined with our management team to assure we have an experienced, compassionate, and talented team of doctors many of whom you already know. So, it is with foresight and thoughtfulness that I entrust your general eye care to:
If you have been a retina patient of mine, I have assured Ophthalmic Consultants has a strong retinal eye care team to support your eye health needs. I am confident entrusting your retinal eye care to:
Each of these doctors has my “stamp of approval” and will provide the quality of care you are used to and deserve. When it is time for your next retina eye appointment, depending on our individual needs, our office will work with you to schedule with one of these very capable physicians. You can learn more about each doctor by clicking on their names within this letter or find detailed information about all our doctors in the “About Us” section of our website.
While Ophthalmic Consultants is no longer taking appointments for me, I will be working in an occasional capacity when one of our doctors is out of the office.
Once again, thank you for having entrusted me with your precious eye health. Thank you for having enriched my life.
