Dr. Dave is a native of Pittsburgh, PA and completed his undergraduate studies at Washington and Jefferson College, Washington, PA. He received his Bachelor of Science with a major in biology, graduating Magna Cum Laude in June 1989. During his undergraduate years, he was a member of Phi Beta Kappa Fraternity. He went on to study at Pennsylvania College of Optometry and completed his externships at Philadelphia Naval Hospital, Pediatric/Binocular Vision Center and the Vision Rehabilitation Clinic at The Eye Institute, and Allied Vision Services, Lawrenceville, NJ. In 1993, as a member of the Beta Sigma Kappa Honor Fraternity, he received his Doctorate of Optometry. That same year he married Cheryl, a fellow graduate. His Therapeutic license was obtained in January 1994, allowing him to treat eye disease and prescribe medication, in addition to performing comprehensive eye exams.
Beginning his career practicing inside Lenscrafters at the Hamilton Mall, Dr. Dave soon had a loyal following of patients. He moved on to practice at Pinnacle Health in Medford and Cherry Hill for several years. In 1999, coinciding with the birth of their first daughter, Dr. Dave joined his wife back at the Hamilton Mall and they formed CDR Eye Associates. Wanting to be able to offer more services to their patients, and spend more time with their young children, they opened All About Eyes in Egg Harbor Township in October 2007.
Dr. Dave enjoys taking the time to make sure his patients are well informed and comfortable with their vision and visual choices. Being from Pittsburgh, he is of course, a big Steelers fan. He also enjoys fishing, bird watching, reading and spending time with his family.
