Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shatz "We use exceptionally sophisticated technology in the treatment of visual disorders. Yet the most important element of eye surgery is the relationship betweeen the surgeon and the patient. Communication is essential in addressing the needs of each individual. Tailoring cutting edge technology to match the specific needs of each individual is my focus. Performing vision correction in an artful, personalized manner is my prescription for success."
