in Palm beach, Florida |
Referred to Dr Schechter from my Optiction ( Dr. Butler of Eye Care Professionals ) after serious eye pain. Within an hour I was seen by Dr Schechter. What a great experience, I was treated within minutes of arrival. All the staff was great, The Doctor spent time with me to explain my condition, which was serious and the course of treatment was to be seen each day. He was even going out of town for the weekend and made sure that I was seen by another great Doctor at the Wellington office, also
