Duluth, MN |
Dr. Shuey was great with my young son. He specializes with in pediatric eye-care and I can see why. He is very quick and efficient and made it as painless for my son as he could. I highly recommend Dr. Shuey especially for Twin Port residents as we don't have to drive to the Twin Cities to get top care.
