Daniel E. Bustos, M.D.
Cataract Surgery & Comprehensive Ophthalmology
Board Certified Ophthalmologist
Dr. Daniel Bustos provides comprehensive medical and surgical care for a wide range of eye disorders including glaucoma, cataracts, and neuro-ophthalmic disease. His bedrock principal, inherited from his father who was a cardiothoracic surgeon, is to treat each patient with dignity, compassion, respect, and a personal attention to detail, which he believes every human being deserves. “…I strive to make sure my patients understand, on at least a basic level, what is wrong with their eyes, what we can do together to fix it, and what they can expect in the future, so they leave my exam room feeling better about the future of their eyes.”
Following his medical education and internship from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, Texas, Dr. Bustos completed his ophthalmology residency at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, in 2007. Since that time Dr. Bustos has utilized his expertise in nearly a thousand cases to advance the sight of his cataract patients. Of these, many were referred to him through optometrists whose patients appreciated the quality of care they received, and many were friends and family members of previous cataract patients who recommended Dr. Bustos’ thorough and compassionate care. In addition to cataract surgery, he has extensive experience diagnosing and treating corneal/anterior segment diseases, neuro-ophthalmic disorders, and glaucoma.
One of Dr. Bustos’ deepest desires has been the opportunity to practice and become an integral part of the Nashville community that he and his family grew to love during his residency. He and his family are excited to become part of the fabric of Middle Tennessee on a permanent basis and to build relationships of trust and partnership that will last indefinitely.
