Without question, the Shiley team made a positive difference in my life.

Dear Dr. Nudleman and the Shiley Team:

Several weeks ago I became a patient of yours when I experienced a torn retina while on vacation.  Interestingly, I was alone at the time and after navigating the downtown ER came to you for emergency surgery.  Having no one to assist me during a stressful time, I was thankful to have you all there to provide care and world-class medical advice.  I am a banker and our company mission statement is “every day we will make a positive difference in the financial lives of everyone we touch” so I am constantly evaluating customer service through this lens.  Without question, the Shiley team made a positive difference in my life. Thank you!

Warm regards,
Brigham L. Tubbs
