I am here to help you with my extensive experience and dedication. I currently head the Tele-Glaucoma service at Padeh-Poria Medical Center, and provide consultation and surgery in my clinic in Ramla. Previously I was at the Assaf Harofe Medical Center, and a Senior Lecturer at teh Tel-Aviv University School of Medicine. For 4 years I was chairman of the Israeli Glaucoma Society.
I studied medicine at the Hadassah medical school in Jerusalem, trained in Ophthalmology at the Assaf Harofe Medical Center, and gained my expertise in glaucoma through clinical fellowship in the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. I have conducted many research projects in Ophthalmology, which I present in international meetings and publish in leading Ophthalmology Journals. My list of publications can be seen here.
I also consult to Biotech companies, and serve as the Chief Medical Officer of Galimedix Therapeutics, an international company that is developing a neuro-protective drug for glaucoma, retinal degeneration, and Alzheimer's.
