      The whole staff was wonderful. Dr. Shettle was very friendly and had a warm manner. Loved the whole experience would defiantly recommend if your new to the area or are looking for a private Ophthalmologist.
      in Largo, FL |
      I was very impressed with the service and treatment that I received from Dr. Shettle. He went beyond just treating me for my 'issue'. He took the time to explain everything to me with recommendations for future treatment both here and when I return to Canada. His staff are very friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure meeting them all.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
