I earned my medical degree at George Washington University and served in the medical service of the United States Marine Corps. I received my ophthalmology training at Yale University and Johns Hopkins University. I completed medical executive training at The Wharton School. I am board-certified and was chairman of the Dept. of Ophthalmology for the Christiana Care Health System where I currently serve on the Board of Trustees. I served as a Clinical Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at Temple University Medical School where I was selected as "Preceptor of the Year". I was chosen by the Medical Society of Delaware for inclusion on their "Best Doctors" list for Delaware as well as selection for inclusion on the Castle-Connolly list of "America's Top Ophthalmologists". I am committed to community and international service and am an ardent volunteer in the fight against world blindness. I have donated my services in Vietnam, El Salvador, Senegal, Mauritania and the Carribean Islands. I regularly volunteer my time serving the Wilmington homeless population offering free eyecare on the St. Clare's Outreach Van and the Ministry of Caring. I am an active member of "EyeCare America" and many other organizations. My areas of expertise include cataract surgery utilizing monofocal and multifocal lenses and the correction of astigmatism. I also have expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of retinal diseases including macular degeneration and diabetes. I am an avid fly fisherman and technology geek, and I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my wife and daughter.
