Almost 2 years ago now I developed a severe eye inflammation called uveitis in both eyes. I went to 2 differnent walk-in clinics and was misdiagnosed both times. My vision got so cloudy my wife said,"we're going to the eye doctor even if we don't have an appointment." When we got to North Valley Eye Care in Chico, both Dr. Shaw and Barthelow assessed the situation. This turned out to be a potentially very serious condition with a possibilty of blindness. They saw almost daily for over a week and even on the weekends. The treatment continues because the uveitis flares up after I discontiue the medications, but the periods of being problem-free are getting longer and longer. I could not have asked for better care! I have seen Dr. Shaw since we moved here in 1981. Now I see Dr. Barthelow more often than not but also rely on Dr. Shaw. I am very pleased with their care and medical skills.
