Nationally Recognized Leaders
There are several good retina practices in the San Diego area, and a few in southern California that are considered great. Retina Consultants San Diego is one of the very few that is considered world-class. We pride ourselves on being unique. When it comes to patient care, we never compromise. Compassionate patient care is our absolute highest priority.
Dr. Paul Tornambe founded Retina Consultants San Diego in 1979 on the principle that we should always: “Put the patient first.”
Those words guide everything we do.
We have deliberately kept the practice small. We are extremely selective about which surgeons, researchers, and staff are invited to join. We look beyond their credentials and awards. We don’t want people looking for a job, but looking for an opportunity to contribute to the field and provide only excellent, ethical, and compassionate care for our patients.
“Put the patient first.”Dr. Paul Tornambe
RCSD takes a leadership role in research and clinical trials. We offer our patients access to the latest innovations in retinal care and technology. At the same time, we are very evidence-based and conservative. Our first goal is to protect every bit of patients' vision, but we try very hard to not over treat. We recommend laser, surgery, or injections only when less invasive treatments clearly won’t solve the problem. We do everything possible to minimize the pain or discomfort involved in treatments. We always take the time to explain alternative treatments and procedures. We listen to your questions and concerns and answer to the best of our ability.
RCSD is run by doctors, not businessmen or private equity groups. Our highest priority is to maximize patient care, not profits.
