  • I am a board certified ophthalmologist specializing in the diagnosis, treatment and surgery of the retina and vitreous. I graduated with high honors from Harvard University, and went on to medical school at the Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. During my tenure at Tufts, I was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. I completed my internship in internal medicine at Yale-New Haven Hospital, and completed a residency in ophthalmology at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. I left New York for a few years to pursue subspecialty training in Medical Retina at the Joslin Diabetes Center of Harvard Medical School, where I pursued several research topics in diabetic retinopathy. Later, I relocated to Memphis, Tennessee, to pursue another fellowship in Vitreoretinal Surgery at the Vitreoretinal Foundation/Eye Specialty Group, one of the oldest fellowships in the country of this type. I returned to New York City, to join MaculaCare, a private practice retina group with Drs. Harvey Lincoff and Daniel Rosberger, two of the preeminent retina surgeons in the world. I then moved to Orange County, California to found Retina Orange County, a solo private practice in Irvine. In addition to my duties at Retina Orange County, I also practice with the Foothill Eye Group in Glendora, and with Kaiser Permanente in Riverside.
