One word here...excellent!
Thank you for the compliment. We appreciate you!

Once again my visit to Dr Shuster was more than I expected Besides being extremely attentive and precise about every detail for his diagnostic, he had solutions that he explained so well and talked about alternatives. Like for the previous appointments, he was very professional, warm, and compassionate. The conversation was easy, the information clear, and the interest, the concern, and the care he shows are amazing. The world is a better place because people like Dr Shuster.
Thank you for the kind and positive feedback. We love to hear that we met all your expectations.

I met Dr Shuster at a critical time. I had glaucoma surgery on my left eye in NJ, done by another doctor. After this surgery, I was in danger of completely losing my left eye. Dr Shuster's skills, knowledge and compassion saved and stabilized my left eye. After months of working to save my left eye, Dr Shuster performed a successful glaucoma surgery on my right eye. The surgery went so well that the vision in my right eye was significantly improved the next day. Dr Shuster is very kind and pati
Thank you for your kind words and referral. We strive to meet the needs of each individual patient. Thank you again for sharing your story.

I came to Dr. Shuster after a glaucoma surgery another doctor did for me in NJ. My NJ doctor installed a shunt that was LEAKING. The pressure in my eye was extremelly low. I was very worried that I would loose all sight in my eye. Dr. Shuster was able to control the pressure and stop the leakage. Thanks to Dr. Shuster, my surgery site is healed and my vision is back to where I can read and even drive. Thank you so much for saving my eye!
