My first visit to Dr. Schatz

I went to Dr. Schatz to get an up to date prescription for glasses and was told I had a melanoma in my right eye. At Sloane Kettering I was asked who the doctor was who had made a very early and correct diagnosis. I am very thankful to the friend who suggested I see him for a new eyeglass prescription.
