The Best!

My daughter has had several surgeries for Strabismus starting at age three. She is now 18 years old. Dr. Shuey performed five corrections over the years. I don't know what to say- We love him! He is not only a skilled surgeon, but he is just a plain humble and nice guy. Our family has a fondness for Dr. Shuey as he is not only great with his patients, but respectful of their families as well. You can't go wrong with Dr. Shuey.
