Dr. Catuncan completed a 13 month residency at the Eye Center of Texas in Houston, Texas. The program focused on the management of ocular disease, pathology, and ocular emergencies. She had the privilege of working under the guidance and direction of both ophthalmologists and optometrists. Within this clinical environment, she learned how to incorporate the use of medical literature and critical thinking into effective patient care.
Outside the office, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, eating, working out, and is an avid sports fan.
