This appointment involved a condition called Eylea. Although I have been receiving treatment for the past year, I believed that all treatment would end very soon. I was disillusioned to discover that this was a life time illness, which would continued to be treated with no apparent end. When I shard my disillusionment with my doctor I was given an Eylea brochure and told to read it again.

My visit with Dr. Shaw was a follow-up to an emergency room visit I had a week or so earlier for a suspected eye injury. I was very happy with the care I received.
