I had the hooding on my eyelids removed. Dr. Shore did such a beautiful job, the sutchers were tiny and so even. I have nothing but good to say about the entire staff and Dr. I don't believe you will find anyone who could surpass their knowledge and skill. My entire experience was easy from start to finish. All questions were answered and time was taken to make sure I understood all details of what would happen during and after surgery. I will go to him again for anything else I need done on my face or eyes.
My case was difficult and complicated due to a serious traumatic injury I suffered a year ago. Many structures were damaged, and my vision was compromised. Dr. Shore had to deal with a real mess around my eye, including an outer corner that had been sewn up in a temporary fashion by the trauma surgeon, and a droopy eyelid with an S-curve. Dr. Shore assured me that his plan was to make my eye look normal again. I could hardly believe that he did exactly that. It actually looks slightly better than my undamaged eye! He is kind, professional and unassuming, a real gentleman. The long wait times may have been due to the recent loss of one of his colleagues, so that the practice is currently short staffed.
Dr. Shore is an amazing skilled surgeon. After very frightening surgery near my eyes, I have ended up with excellent results and no scarring! He also went above and beyond when I had some post-op complications (turned out to be minor, but scarey!). His office staff is mixed...some are very sweet and helpful, a few were pretty icey. But no real problem with all that. I highly recommend this surgeon.
