A Word from Dr. Catuncan:
I can remember early on in my career a special patient that I still see to this day. Prior to going into private practice, I completed a residency that focused on the management of ocular disease and pathology. Within this clinical environment, I learned how to incorporate the use of medical literature and critical thinking into effective patient care. Going back to my patient, I was able to detect an abnormality in her eye that led to a lifesaving procedure. To this day, she still thanks me for that diagnosis and how she would not be here without it. It’s times like those that warm your heart and makes this profession so worth it.
