Awesome Surgeon

Dr. Shuler is an excellent surgeon. I had a macular hole in my retina. He immediately scheduled surgery for me and did an AWESOME job. My recovery has been superb. I find Dr. Shuler to be very kind, caring and thoughtful doctor. He took the time to answer my questions and explain the details of the major surgery and recovery. I wouldn't trust any other surgeon but Dr. Shuler!

Excellent Results!

A sudden change in my vision required an evaluation by a retina specialist and Dr. Shuler was highly recommended. He is very thorough and professional. He took time to explain my situation in detail, discussing my options, risks and possible complications. My eye required surgery and it was a complete success! Restoration of my vision has been a wonderful gift. I am thankful for Dr. Shuler!

Excellent

Dr. Shuler was able to repair an almost completely detached retina. Went out of his way to see us in his clinic on a Sunday and scheduled surgery for the next day. I was so lucky he was the on call ophthalmologist. Rather then losing sight in the eye it now is corrected to 85% and continues to improve. At 83 years it is nice to not be seen as hopeless. Many many thanks to Dr. Shuler who continues to follow my progress. He is a very skilled surgeon and caring physician.
