“I don’t remember my first introduction to ophthalmology as a specialty, but I know it was during the first few weeks of medical school. I latched onto the idea immediately and inquired about research in ophthalmology within my first few months at Mount Sinai Medical School in New York. I like working face-to-face with patients to help them with their eye disease, and I enjoy using the diversity of skills required to manage eye conditions. I also enjoy being on the cutting-edge of science using digital and scanning laser imaging equipment, lasers for disease treatment, and the latest micro-surgery to manage retinal problems.”

My experience at EMG was one of the best. The staff was friendly and informative. I felt very comfortable with the entire experience. All my questions were answered and explained.
I have been visiting Dr. Samuel Solish here and I've found the staff attentive, the waiting times were short, and the treatment was first rate. The examinations were thorough and the explanations were easy to understand, and they never hurried me. And as an added bonus, it's near the Portland Transportation Center, so I can travel most of the way via a bus.
