Patient Comments (3)
St Louis, MO |
I won't say that he is a horrible surgeon but he is a horrible person. My dad was scheduled to have surgery with him and didn't feel comfortable with the resident assisting so he informed Dr. shields. Rather than Dr. shields accommodating my dad and making the patient comfortable, he cancelled his surgery the day of when my dad was there to register and refused to treat him any further. That was very unprofessional and he could care less that my dads vision is declining. Doctors should care!

Dr Shields is very kind and soft spoken. He does not rush. He explained my cataract surgery every step of the way. I would recommend Dr shields and his entire staff.

I called Dr. Shields office on a Friday at 5PM with spots and lightning strikes in my eyes. I had an appointment with him at 7AM the next morning. After his examination, he ensured that I was seen by Retina Specialist, for a retinal tear, within a couple of hours on the same day. I was impressed with the care provided during a holiday weekend.
