A busy dedicated doctor that has a practice that is life or death for active people Retina problems seem simple but no one wants to lose their precious eyesight and become a vegetable Dr Blair has a gift of saving a persons eyesight that is Impossible to imagine. As busy as he was he re-attached my retina and saved my eye sight I have about 85 per cent vision which is better than being blind I owe my eyesight to Dr Blair Mort Shuman

Poor eye contact, does not find time to explain the condition and does not show the picture of the retina. Office staff was amazing and energetic. Will go else where
