I get a shot in my left eye every three months. I really like Dr. Schefler and the way she treats me and the ease of getting the shot. I prefer her to any other doctor on the staff

Dr Schefler always thanks us if we have to wait, takes extra time answering questions or concerns and we think she’s the best! Operated on detached retina 7 years ago and have had no problems since—we see her yearly. Highly recommend!

I have been a patient of Dr. Schefler for four years. I always feel confident with her diagnosis and with her advice. Given an opportunity, I would surly recommend Retina Consultants of Houston.

Mine was, more or less, an urgent situation, so I was very lucky to be able to see her. She had a staff who did the photos/preliminary exams and they were excellent. When I saw her, she had all the results. The news was good and she gave me all the info I needed. To me, time spent was not relevant, as she gave me all the time I needed to ask questions. Since the news was good, I had very few questions.
