West Coast Glaucoma – Nanaimo and Vancouver

Effective August 2019, I am seeing patients 3 days each week in Nanaimo and one day each week in East Van. I am grateful to Drs A Goldberg, A Tischler, N Mallek, K Hoar and J Taylor for welcoming me to their practices during my 2018-19 return to BC following my 4 years of providing glaucoma and cataract care at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in conjunction with the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH.

Please ask your eye care provider or family doctor to complete the Glaucoma Consult request form and fax it to the appropriate office.
