  • Michael Patterson, DO: Surgical Scope Fund Donations Matter

    “Surgery is an extraordinarily intricate practice, with intense training and education. There are no shortcuts. I support the Surgical Scope Fund because of the ophthalmologists who traveled the long road to mastering their profession, who knew of the difficult path ahead of them to become surgeons, and took it anyway.”
