I have known Dr Schubert for decades. He is a very kind, caring doctor and unlike many other "professionals" doesn't over book and never keeps patients waiting for hours. Takes his time listening to patients and explaining procedures. He is a top surgeon and has saved my sight numerous times. A great guy who knows his stuff!
