I want to say I am TOTALLY HAPPY with Dr. Shettle, I was very nervous when I first learned I needed eye surgery and Dr. Shettle and his staff were the best. I cannot say enough about Dr. Shettle, he took total care of my eye problem from start to finish with out a single problem. Dr. Shettle, explained every detail of my surgery and after care exactly to a tee. I would recommend Dr. Shettle to anyone who needs eye care for any reason. Again, I am TOTALLY HAPPY with my eye care from Dr. Shettle.

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.
