Philosophy of care statement:
They say, 'success is no accident', it is a cocktail of hard work, perseverance, non stop learning, sacrifice and above all, LOVING what one does. Preserving and enhancing my patient's vision is what I strive to achieve. I make every possible effort to do so for every patient, to the best of my ability and I absolutely love what I do. My reward comes from the happiness and a smile on the face of my patients, when they are able to see better.
