Recent passings of family, namely my Father and Older brother only one month apart initiated a reflection on life and the important matters.

In health care it is a challenge at times to understand people’s values.

The largest aspect is time.  There are only so many seconds in a minute and yet the time just seems to fly.

Many patients comment they were just in the office, and find out it has been 3 to 4 years.

This is one reason my office staff call or send you a reminder letter to remind you it is over one year since your last eye exam.

Recent events with some emergency patients, it would have been better to have the matter looked at on the day the incident occurred, not 4 to 5 days after.  This leads to longer periods of time for resolution of the eye disease or vision situation.

And some times it can even save your life.
