Practice Philosophy:

“Although coming to an eye appointment can be intimidating for children and adults, I believe it can be turned into a positive experience that is both fun and instructive. I look forward to working with and serving the people of North Carolina." - Kevin Gertsch, MD

I am excited to return and join the faculty at the UNC Kittner Eye Center. My goal is to help children and their families understand the diseases affecting them and to guide treatment to give the best visual outcomes possible.
