I can honestly say Ophthalmology is an everlasting love at first sight (pun intended). While still in medical school, I had already applied for general surgical residencies. But in the last rotation of my third year at the Medical College of Virginia, I had the opportunity to work in Ophthalmology. My very first exposure was cataract surgery. That was followed by office work and LASER surgery. It was clear to me this was my calling, based primarily on my interaction with patients. From that point on I did everything I could towards becoming a practicing Ophthalmologist.
I returned to the great Northwest (my birthplace and home through college) and have had but one profession: I am an Ophthalmologist with The Doctors Clinic. I love it here and I love my work.
