Dr. Phillips is a lifelong resident of Philadelphia, MS. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Biology at Mississippi College in Clinton, MS and went on to receive his degree in Optometry from Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN. Dr. Phillips likes a challenge and working with a diverse array of patients from kids to cataracts. “I always enjoy seeing the big smiles on children's faces when they put their first pair of glasses on and their whole world lights up”. Dr. Phillips recalls one of his more memorable experiences:
"I had been seeing her for several years for routine care. One particular visit, we were just unable to get her left eye as clear as we could in previous years. Additional diagnostic testing revealed some mild neurological deficits. She was referred to a neurologist who found a brain mass. The patient underwent successful surgery to have the tumor removed, and of course we always have plenty to talk about when she comes into the office."
Dr. Phillips lives in Philadelphia, MS with his wife and 3 children. He enjoys coaching youth softball and soccer and spending time outdoors with their kids/family.
