I wish I could fully express how terrible my experience with Dr. Shields was. I went in because I had a concern regarding a heightened volume of "floaters" in my eye, but when I explained to Dr. Shields, he literally laughed and told me not to worry. He gave me a whopping 2 minutes of his time. 2...more

I've been under Dr, Shields care for about 9yrs for glaucoma and general eye care. I find him and his staff to be reassuring. They show genuine care and patience for any questions you may have. I would trust my eyes to no one else.
