Specialties: Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus
I hope you are all well as we emerge out of the pandemic.
I have merged my practice with the UCI Health Gavin Herbert Eye Institute! I have moved my private practice to their state of the art Irvine location on the UCI Campus. Together with my new pediatric ophthalmology colleagues, Donny Suh, MD and Charlotte Gore, MD, we will have availabilities for you every day of the week.
I am very excited to be part of the UCI Gavin Herbert Eye Institute Pediatric Ophthalmology team after all these years of solo private practice. The Institute is a full-service Ophthalmology Center, including specialists in cataract, glaucoma, neuro ophthalmology, oculoplastics and retina.
In addition to seeing my private practice patients, I will also do some teaching. I actually started my career at UCI many years ago.
If you already have an appointment pre-scheduled at my Newport office, this will have to be rescheduled. Please call (949) 824-2020 to do this. Let them know you are an existing patient of mine. As I am now an Attending Staff physician in their group, they can let you know their insurance and business arrangements.
Once again, thank you for trusting me all these years, and I look forward to many more!
