May 27, 2024
I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Schmunes. She is professional, kind, patient, good listener but most importantly, she’s a rock star in her profession. You can say I was legally blind and she took her time to make sure that the lense she implanted was perfect. It is. Dr. Shmunes doesn’t cut corners and I can sincerely say the well being of her patients is her priority. Thank You Dr. Shmunes
