Roshni Ranjit-Reeves, MD

I am so excited to be here at Duke as an oculoplastics fellow. The collegial atmosphere and multidisciplinary involvement is what attracted me to this program and I feel privileged to work with my co-fellows and subspecialty attendings to learn about the multifaceted field of oculofacial reconstructive surgery.
