San Diego's Best LASIK Credentials
You want your eyesight to be perfect, right? So when you're picking your San Diego LASIK surgeon, why would you settle for someone who doesn't have the best possible training and education?
Let me tell you a bit more about some of my credentials.
I earned my undergraduate degree from Harvard College. This is a place where everything people do, whether in their classwork or extra-curriculars, they try to do it at a world-class level. It was here, in my elective animal surgery course doing a dissection of a rabbit, that I just knew I had to be a surgeon. The smaller and finer and more detailed, the better.
University of Chicago, where I earned my medical degree, is nationally known as the ultimate geeky intellectual school. In medical school I learned the traditions of absolute intellectual rigor in thinking about and discussing every case. As a medical student, I already knew that it was my destiny to be an eye surgeon, so I took an extra year to pursue my interest by doing research in the development of color vision.
I had a lot of choices when deciding where to do my ophthalmology training, and I chose to train at USC's Doheny Eye Institute. A major part of my time was spent at LA County Hospital because I knew that, as the sole source of health care for millions of people, I'd get to see everything -- and it was true. I saw every kind of eye disease and injury, and I shattered the record for the largest number of cataracts performed by a resident.
It may surprise you to hear that not all San Diego LASIK surgeons are certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology. I take it as a solemn responsibility -- and a personal pleasure -- to keep current on all of the latest developments in ophthalmology, and I always keep my certifications current.
When I was a resident, many more senior doctors supported me in my quest to fulfill my destiny as an eye surgeon, and it was my privilege to work as a faculty member of UCSF and supervise residents as they learned the art of cataract surgery.
I take very seriously my responsibility to be a good member of the medical community, and love going to the annual meetings of the various ophthalmology and LASIK surgery societies, so I can compare notes with my fellow surgeons on the best techniques and technologies to help my patients get the best possible results.
