Patient Comments (1)
in Stafford, VA |
Dr. Shen identified a growth on my eyelid as potentially cancerous and sent me to a specialist ophthalmologist/plastic surgeon immediately. He was right and the center portion of my eyelid was removed along with the cancerous growth. Several other physicians had misdiagnosed this growth as an allergic reaction or eczema over the course of several years. I am grateful to Dr. Shen for his diagnosis as this cancer could have invaded the eye itself if not removed.
