Ophthalmology Residency Program Director

Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology

Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus

Helping pediatric patients and their families through complex ophthalmic disease diagnoses and management are my passions. After completing a fellowship in pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus at UT Southwestern in Dallas, I joined the University of Florida as assistant professor in ophthalmology. Since that time, we have established the University of Florida as the referral center in North Florida for state of the art care for pediatric ophthalmology patients.
