in Lisbon, NY |
We would without a doubt tell anyone one and everyone to go see Dr. Sheilds. He is the best in the world to help your family or friends. He was able to save our daughters life when there was very little hope. Our daughter was diagnosed with bilateral retinablastoma and it was in both eyes at ten months old. She did however loose her right eye due to the retina being detatched he was able to save the left eye and she has great vision in that eye.We are so thankful he saved our baby.
