In his own words, what he loves about being an Optometrist: 

 “I love becoming part of the community as a trusted optometrist for patients of all ages.  Optometry is a very social profession and I love interacting and learning about so many people daily and building those relationships over the years.  I also have really poor eyesight so I love keeping up to date on all the new technology coming out and being able to offer it to patients.”
