Welcome to my blog! My goal here is to get more personal - and simply share stuff with my friends, family, and patients! I want to share compelling and what I consider interesting things that get you thinking, enjoying, talking, learning and laughing. You can expect some posts on the latest advances in cosmetic surgery and laser vision correction (although it seems like there’ll be a fair amount of music-related posts - they’re too much fun to make!) I also expect that we’ll have more contests and free stuff, special events and even very special guests! See ya later!

Name That Tune May 2017 Winner!

Congratulations to L.U. of Irvine and Shari of Irvine for winning our Name That Tune contest and correctly guessing the song as “The Swan”, by Camille St. Saens! They both will receive $500 in office credit to be used toward any service or procedure we offer.

Here are some interesting facts about “The Swan” or “Le Cygne” in French:

  • The Swan was the only movement from the “Carnival of Animals” that St. Saens allowed to be performed in his lifetime. When choreographed to ballet it is often known as “The Dying Swan” after a poem by Tennyson.
  • When performed alone, it is commonly scored for solo cello and solo piano. Enjoy this beautiful version of “The Swan” performed by world-famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
