    Personal Statement

    My goal, as chairman of the department, is to build a really top-notch academic program for the institution and for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. I'm inspired by the growth. Our faculty has more than quadrupled, our patient volumes are way up and we provide high-quality complex care for the entire region. I'm inspired to continue that growth and to expand our reach to help people who need eye care. We have specialists in every subspecialty field in ophthalmology so patients can expect the best care for whatever their problem is.

    I was having eye issues. Dr. Pearson saw me within 3 hours of notifying him. I had a retinal tear and he took care of me immediately. I am employee of UK healthcare and proud to say I work there especially after the care I received from the eye clinic. Exceptional in every way...
