Dr. Shorb was very professional and was thorough in examining my eyes. I am prediabetic and he was able to reassure me that I didn’t have any of the issues that can affect the eyes with this issue.

Dr Shorb is a great doctor. I however gave him lower marks due to his office staff. They leave a lot to be desired. Unfriendly and unprofessional.
