Patient Reviews (4)
in Royal Oak, MI |
Dr. Shanbom performed cataract removal and multi-focal lens implants in both eyes in May 2016. My vision improved immediately-I don't need prescription glasses anymore-and the only problem I've had is dry eye, which does occur in some patients. The staff and Dr. Shanbom have given me sample eye drops and done their utmost to get my provider to approve the prescription drops he wants me to use. I had extra office visits because of this problem and everyone is always helpful, informative and kind!

Dr. Shanbom is an outstanding surgeon and an even better person. He cares about his patients and explains everything very carefully and patiently. He performed laser cataract multi focal lens surgery on both of my eyes last year. I no longer need glasses and I can see perfectly. I can drive at night without any problem and I feel 20 years younger. I could not possibly ask for a better ophthalmologist than Dr. Shanbom. I recommend him to anyone in need of eye care or surgery.

I give Dr. Shanbom and his entire office staff a 5 out of 5 rating. My eye Optometrist recommended Dr. Shambom to me with his highest recommendation. I found Dr. Shanbom to be calm, confident, and a very nice man. He immediately put me at ease. He did cataract surgery on both my eyes using the latest lenses available which correct long distance and close up (reading). I offer my highest recommendation for Dr. Shanbom and his entire office staff who are great. Dan Larabell

I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR OFFICE. THE BILLER IS RUDE AND HANGS UP ON PATIENTS THAT HAVE ACUTE EYE ISSUES GOING ON. IF OOKING FOR CARING DOCTOR OFFICE DO NOT PICK THIS ONE. MANDY IS NONCARING AS WELL. DO NOT CARE ABOUT PATIENCE NEEDS
