2020 will mark the sixth decade in which I have been a physician. It has been a privilege and honor to restore and preserve the sight of so many wonderful people. I have also been blessed to work with so many dedicated and caring professionals throughout my career to whom I am forever grateful. Many of you I have “tagged” on this post. So it is with mixed emotions that I announce my retirement from practice in January 2020.
I am humbled to have been able to impact so many lives in a positive manner and I have always kept my patients well being at the forefront of my thinking. I feel that being a physician is about serving a higher purpose, taking care of a fellow human being during some of their most vulnerable moments. I have learned so much from my patients and shared with them the many joys as well as challenges in managing their unique clinical situations. There is nothing more gratifying than performing surgery to allow someone to see a beautiful sunset, read a book or to gaze into the face of their grandchild. I will miss the special relationship I have had with these people but will keep the memories with me the rest of my life.
Thank you to all that have been part of my journey in medicine these past 40+ years.
