Optometry Expert 531245 AL

Expertise Description

I am a residency trained optometrist who has been in clinical practice for almost 40 years at a college of optometry. In addition, I have also been involved in hospital based and multi-specialty medical group practice, as well as private practice. While I specialize in primary care optometry, a significant part of my patient base deals with the diagnosis and management of glaucoma. I am very familiar with the current literature and am active in clinical research. I have provided consultations, deposition, and courtroom testimony for more than 30 years as an optometry expert witness.
