Unique Training and Experience

As an oculoplastic surgeon, he received certification from the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS), the primary governing board of this specialty. To be admitted into this organization, an oculoplastic surgeon must pass rigorous written and oral examinations testing their knowledge and skills.
