Dr Shuler performed surgery for my detatched retina. The procedure went very well and my vision was saved. That is the bottom line. Beyond that, Dr Shuler and his staff have always been very friendly, professional, and competent. Setting appointments is easy...he is accessible. Dr Shuler is not one for idle chit chat. But he will clearly address all your questions and concerns. He is direct and efficient. And clearly very good at his chosen profession. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Shuler is a great Dr. I had to have emergency retina surgery on New Years Eve, and he did it. My eye is doing great now.

Faced with a retinal detachment in my one "good" eye, Dr. Shuler, with quiet confidence, skill and professionalism performed the laser re-attachment. My recovery period was within a normal timeframe. What was abnormal was the level of vision I regained. Three years out, the corrected vision in my eye is 20/20--a Googled search of "acceptable" indicated 20/40 or even 20/50 with correction. Post-surgical followup has been outstanding. Dr. Shuler has my strongest recommendation.

Doctor Shuler took time to keep me informed as to the steps required for treatment for my detached retina, Dr. Shuler kept me up to date on what I could expect from the recovery process and answered all my question in ways I could understand.

This entire office has been extremely friendly, comforting and has made what could be a very scary situation so much easier to deal with. We appreciate Dr. Shuler's kindness in explaining everything he is doing to make sure I understand.

At 83 when I go to Dr. office it's like I have taken a time machine from the 30's, where I saw people going blind and my child hood friends being sick and dying; to a wonderful future where we are light years ahead of such problems. The office is filled with the latest equipment and the greatest technicians, who explain everything and make the visit like seeing an old friend. Then when all the data is collected Dr, Shuler comes in to complete the visit preforming whatever needs to be done.

You follow his direction and trust in his skilled hands and knowledge base you will be pleased with your results. This man saved my eyesight and am 20/20 again which I never dreamed possible. I am eternally grateful and thank God that He matched me up with Dr. Shuler. Well done Doctor well done!
