Welcome to the Center for Retinal Diseases and Surgery (CRDS).
In response to COVID-19, our office is closely monitoring CDC guidelines as well as those of state, local, and medical leadership. As your health and safety is our primary concern, we have instituted the following changes:
- reduced the schedule to prioritize current and new patients with urgent/emergent retina needs as well as our regular patients who warrant ongoing care to preserve vision
- limited patients to only two or three per hour, which expedites your office visit and greatly diminishes your exposure to others
- reconfigured our waiting room with reduced seating and maximized space between patients
- provided our staff with masks and gloves and take special care to clean surfaces and chairs with disinfectant between each patient.
As a reminder, please reschedule your visit if you are experiencing fever, cough, general malaise, and/or shortness of breath and/or if you or anyone close to you has been diagnosed or suspected of having COVID-19 in the past two weeks. If you or someone in your household has recently been out of state, please reschedule to allow 15 days since your/their return before coming to our office. As always, please call the office promptly should you experience any significant changes in your vision. Thank you!
Sudden or progressive vision loss from retinal diseases can have a profound functional and emotional impact on patients and their families. Treatment requires a delicate balance of expertise, support of dedicated staff, and a team approach with referring physicians to care for patients and to preserve or restore vision.
The Center for Retinal Diseases and Surgery is committed to a tradition of excellence in providing personalized retinal care in a compassionate setting. We value the integrity of a candid assessment of a patient’s prognosis, place a premium on patient privacy as mandated by law, and maintain high standards of training, board certification, and ethical conduct expected of physicians and surgeons. We are privileged to have current technology and employ innovative approaches to diagnose and manage a wide range of medical and surgical retinal diseases. We apply and customize the most current management guidelines to meet each patient’s unique needs and welcome the opportunity to serve and care for you.
