Many of my patients have told me that they are so excited that they found an eye care practice that offers them true Total Eye Care. Previously they had spent several days going to different doctors’ offices for the various treatments they needed – one office to get their glasses or contacts from their primary eye care doctor, then another office for treatment from a glaucoma specialist, a third office to check on their diabetic eye disease or macular degeneration, and yet another day spent at a facial cosmetic surgeon’s office for eyelid surgery.
At Frantz EyeCare, we believe that a multidisciplinary approach to eye care provides you with a higher quality of care that is more convenient and cost efficient for you.
I have the privilege of heading up an incredible team of multidisciplinary, fellowship-trained specialists to better meet your eye care needs. I am a fellowship trained eye surgeon specializing in Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery and am one of the top 5 Bladeless Laser Cataract surgeons in the country. I am also listed in Best Doctors in America and The Guide to America’s Top Ophthalmologists.
Let me introduce you to our six other ophthalmologists who make up our subspecialty team at Frantz EyeCare.
