Nation's Leading Eye Surgeon in California Addresses All Your Eye Health Needs
You've come to the right place to address all your eye health needs. Dr. Mary A. Côté is one of the nation's leading eye surgeons and provides exceptional service to all her patients. She is an ophthalmologist who can competently and caringly handle everything from eyeglasses to glaucoma, macular degeneration to diabetic retinopathy, dry eyes to itchy, red eyes, corneal abrasions to allergies, and even lumps and bumps.
I believe in treating each patient as I would a member of my family. I believe in a balanced approach to medicine, taking into account the physical, mental, and spiritual health of my patients. You are an individual person and a patient to me, not a consumer. I want you to understand and take responsibility for helping me take care of you. I will listen to you.
Did you know, all "eye doctors" are not the same? There is a difference between an ophthalmologist and an optometrist.
An optometrist has four years of post-graduate training with an emphasis on how to fit glasses and contacts. In contrast, an ophthalmologist is a physician with nine years of post-graduate training who specializes in the diagnosis of medical and surgical treatment of diseases and defects of the eye and related structures.
This additional training assures you that Dr. Côté possesses superior medical knowledge, skill, and experience to better diagnose and treat your eye health needs.
