Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Schell "I grew up locally in Washington, Missouri. After earning my medical degree from Saint Louis University I completed my ophthalmology residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin and additional fellowship training in cornea, external disease and refractive surgery at The University of Minnesota. As an ophthalmologist at the Pernoud Eye Institute, I am committed to providing cutting-edge and compassionate care to all of my patients. I treat my patients the way I want my family treated."

Patient Comments (3)
in St Louis |
Needed corneal transplant, had complete cornea available, but only replaced partial. Surgery should have been to replace complete cornea, but partial left patient with inability to see out of the eye. If a window has a whole in it, one does not cut out the damaged part & only replace the section where the hole is, because there is a line in the pane where the cut was made; same goes true for eyes. Very Poor !!! Would definitely Not Recommend!!
John, Can you please call our office to follow up as your comments do not match any of our patients and certainly not our quality of care. Please call 314-351-0101 and give us your information and Dr. Schell will be more than happy to call you back to clarify. Thanks

Dr. Schell performed a total of six eye surgeries on me in 2016. I had fantastic results. I have highly recommended him to family and friends.

I just wrote a review of Dr. Schell and did not fill in the five stars for Healthgrades, so one star is half the yellow color. Please know that he is a FIVE STAR eye doctor, and you will never be disappointed, or skeptical of his knowledge and skills when you get eye care, and treatment of eye disorders. I will add one more comment. He gives you written instructions for all after care procedures, and free samples when needed. Thank You Dr Schell, I will never forget your kindness and caring.
