My wife and I have been patients of Alan Schaeffer, MD for 11 yrs. Our first experience was when my wife went to him for a severe Eye infection. It appeared that she might lose the eye;but due to his attentive expert treatment extending for about a year,He was able save the eye and following a cornea transplant she has excellent Vision. Lin and I are both diabetics and highly recommend Him because of His knowledge , special skills and care of his patient. Rev & Mrs Frank G. Burton, Hernando.
