Dr. de Sabra Delivers Outstanding Personalized Care

At our eye care center, we cultivate long-term patient relationships. As our patients have continued to refer friends and family, we have had the opportunity to grow our family of doctors.  Eye Specialist Ximena de Sabra is the newest member of our team. She joined our group in 2015, bringing with her a caring approach to patients that complements the practice style of Dr. Peter Broberg, Dr. Halsey Settle, and Dr. Tom McGlathery
