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.
