Dr. Schiff was an excellent excellent retina specialist who perfectly repaired my detached retina which was a rather difficult surgery. He came highly recommended by a retina specialist in CT and has lived up to that reputation. Thank you Dr. Schiff!

Great doctor

My regular opthamologist asked Dr Schiff if he would see me that same week as an emergency. Dr Schiff told him to send me right over. He took so much time with me to figure out what was going on. He's also a really very nice fellow - very caring and compassionate.
