Terrific Doctor!

I had a chelazion (bump on my eye lid) that was getting larger and larger. Another doctor recommended Dr. Schechter and I went to him. He was terrific! He gave me several treatment options and I picked the least invasive one. It didn't work for me and so I went back to have him remove the bump. I was scared stiff to have a needle come that close to my eye (to deaden the area so he could remove the chelazion), but he was patient, gentle and an expert. I didn't feel a thing. Staff was great too. He's a gem.
