Patient Letter to Dr Schauer | Uptown Eye Care, Monticello Eye Clinic

Dr Schauer and the doctors at Uptown Eye Care strongly feel that identifying and meeting the needs of their patients is their primary objective. So strongly, in fact, that part of our mission statement is “Our entire team is dedicated to providing you and your family with superior eye care…because your health is our first priority.”

For this reason we are especially happy when our patients let us know that we are meeting this goal. This is a letter written by one of Dr Schauer’s patients. We wanted to share it with you.
