I believe my principal responsibility is to my patients, those who trust me with the care of their eyes, one of the most precious human resources. That means dispensing the highest quality care, acting toward each patient with kindness and compassion and helping to educate them about eye diseases. It means spending as much time clinically as I need to – without regard to managed care time restraints. I want every patient to feel he or she can discuss any medical condition with me in perfect confidence. Be reassured that when I examine the eyes, I am looking actively for ocular diseases that may indicate other, more potent illnesses concentrated elsewhere in the body. My responsibility to patients extends to installing state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to monitor eye health and keeping it maintained properly. I, myself, must constantly strive to keep up with my research, training and continuing education so that my patients have access to the newest and most medically advanced techniques. I pledge never to be so busy that I cannot follow up on a diagnosis. It is my duty to recommend my patients to specialists when I cannot take a patient’s case.
