Tyrone McCall, MD
Disease can also be thought of as dis-ease (courtesy Gordon Dekkert MD). Dis as a prefix meaning apart or away from, "apart from ease". Anytime a person is told they have to see a specialist, this will produce anxiety. What is going on? Is it serious? How did I get this? Will I need surgery? Am I going blind? Many studies have shown that people fear blindness second only to cancer.
When you come to see me, I will discuss with you what I find, what the tests show, what alternatives there are to address the problem, the pros and cons of each approach and my expectation for your vision. Although I cannot cover every conceivable issue or outcome, I will do my best to communicate with you how we can deliver the best care for you and your eye.
I have represented our practice on numerous national clinical studies and ophthalmic political committees, assumed leadership roles in local ophthalmic organizations, published peer reviewed articles and given dozens of lectures but that is mostly irrelevant to how I will care for you when you come to see me.
In the time I am not in the clinic or operating room with you, I enjoy golf, running, live music, reading, NYT crossword, red wine, single malt scotch and food of every possible kind. My lovely wife partakes in most of these endeavors and I look forward to imparting these joys to my two fantastic children.
You now know a little bit about me but I'd like to share with you a core belief. Every person deserves the right to be treated with respect, dignity and humanity regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, age, belief systems or atheism.

I was referred to Dr. McCall two years ago to have Cataract surgery. The procedure was quick and painless. He is always pleasant, approachable and takes his time to explain a procedure or eye exam, and answers questions thoroughly.View on Google
My first experience with Dr. McCall and staff was very pleasant and reassuring, from the moment I checked in through to check out at the end of the visit. I was a bit nervous initially, but the entire staff was friendly, professional, very informative and quickly put me at ease. They explained each test and its purpose in the process. Dr. McCall was very professional and very friendly. He explained in detail what my procedure entailed and illustrated how the procedure would proceed. He listened to my questions and addressed my concerns, as I left the office, I was looking forward to the surgery and expecting a great outcome.View on Google
