Helping people see and appreciate the world.”

“I was drawn to healthcare because I like things that are intellectually challenging. I chose optometry because I like meeting and interacting with people. My profession gives me the opportunity to help people improve, enhance, and protect their vision. I like the idea that I’m restoring more than patients’ vision. I’m restoring their ability to see and appreciate the world around them – their loved ones and friends, the beauty of nature – and the ability to see it all clearly. What’s more, I love the fact that we offer some of the most advanced leading-edge technology in the Tallahassee area – to give patients an even clearer choice for their total vision care.”

The patient always comes first.”

“I had surgery to straighten my eyes when I was 6. At 12, I was put into contacts and I thought it was a miracle. I’ve wanted to pass on the miracle of good vision to others ever since. Today, I enjoy the challenge of identifying and offering solutions to vision-related problems. I think my best quality is devotion. I am devoted to my family, my profession, my practice, and my patients. I want my patients to trust me for their vision healthcare needs.”
