in Amsterdam, NY |
After 30 years of being told I would lose the sight in my r. eye through many eye infections, two years ago I basically was considered blind with also no peripheral vision and a cataract. I was referred to Dr. Schultze for an evaluation. Dr. Schultze was quite confident that he could help me see again which he did. I again returned to him for a removal of a cataract on my l. eye this July. I would feel confident in recommending him to any family member/friend and return if I had any problem.
Dr. Schultze did an amazing job restoring my vision. Years ago I had lost vision in my right eye and was nervous knowing I needed cataract surgery in the left eye. Dr. Schultze was recommended by my opthamologist. The experience was remarkable for me and I am now seeing 20/20 in that eye. I am grateful to Dr. Schultze and the staff at Cornea Consultants for their very thorough and professional approach and setting my mind at ease. I could not have had a better experience!

I worked as a nurse for Ophthalmologists for 10 yrs and also worked with Ophth. in the O.R. I found Dr. Schultzes' office staff to be very competent and professional. I was really impressed with my surgery center experience from the time I walked in the door to pre.op, O,R. and post-op and discharge. I feel Dr. Schultze is an excellent Ophyhalmologist and highly recommend him.

in Voorheesville, NY |
Superior staff from top to bottom and office and surgical center. Follow up was immediate following cataract surgery and iol. Experience during surgery was actually a pleasant, comfortable and anxiety free. I hold Dr. Schultz in the highest esteem. Professional, knowledgable, and without question skillful. Which is why occasionally wait times may be a bit long as many people seek his services. Certainly worth the wait. Would highly recommend him to those would benefit from his specialty
