Auburn, WA |
Dr. Shields did cateract sugury - a week later when it got soooo infected that I could see he passed me off to 2 other doctors. His addatude was oh well and basically didn't want anything more to do with me. I will never see that man again, except in court.

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.
