PLEASE go to Dr Perez or DR Davis. I don't care about credentials, I care about getting people to doctors that walk the walk, not just talk the talk. my job is to prevent unnecessary vision loss as an advocate for those with uveitis and other inflammatory eye diseases through knowledge of how some doctors treat people. then I send people to only the best as anything else can be a waste of time and money causing loss of vision or even blindness or death if cancer is the reason for the inflammatory disease process

I am aware of the credentials of almost every specialist in the world. I've been doing this for over ten years now. dR davis has clinics in other parts of florida where you can see her as does Dr Perez that might be closer. contact them and make an appointment.
