Highest recommendation

Fixed a problem no other retina specialist could fix. Super nice and caring the whole time. So happy I found him after doing a lot of research to figure out who is the best. Don't let the young age fool you, he was better than all the gray haired doctors I saw!

Macular hole master!

When I had my macular hole, Dr. Schimel saved the day! I only had to be face down for 45 minutes/hour instead of the full hour and he let me sleep on my side instead of face down. The surgery was super easy and my hole closed! I am doing great now and so happy I went to see Dr. Schimel. (I had first gone to see the "famous" macular hole doctor at the "fancy" hospital in Miami first, but didn't like that guy much. I am so happy I trusted my gut feeling and went to see Dr. Schimel instead!) I send all of my friends to Dr. Schimel now. Don't let the fact that he looks very young fool you, he is the best!!
