Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
We do comprehensive medical eye care, including eye exams, optical services, cataract surgery, and laser vision correction (LASIK). Bob Griffin hired me 26 years ago; he’s been retired for about 13 years and Dr. Nilu Maboudi took his place. Dr. Kwang Kim has been here for the last eight years, and Dr. Guy Seydel has been with us for 15 years.
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
Most of my patients are also my friends. I’m involved in their lives to the extent our association allows. My wife and I volunteer extensively in the community and do service through our church affiliation.
Why is your staff the best in the business?
They care about people more than material things.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?
Being a husband, father, grandfather and a caring physician.
Who is your role model in business or in life, and why?
Jesus Christ—who better to try and emulate?
Where do you go when the going gets tough?
To my knees to pray.
What’s your hidden talent?
I rarely give up.
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
Claim Jumper in Roseville.
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
I hope to someday meet Jesus Christ and express my gratitude to Him. After that I’d like to talk with Abraham Lincoln.
And finally, customer service is…?
Believing in and applying the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have done unto you.”
