What Patients Are Saying About Ayah Etyem

I have been going to Shane Retina for 18 months and have nothing but good words to say for everyone who works there. They are so efficient. I have to have injections in both eyes and Ayah is the professional who does the injection. The minute she enters the room with that wonderful smile she puts you at ease and she sits down and explains in language you can understand what is going to happen. Her professional attitude and efficiency make having the injection much easier.

- Hilda Zepka

“I have received several eye shots from PA Etyem, and I have the highest regards for her professionalism and her ability to minimize all the discomfort as a result of the shot. Briefly, she is excellent.”

- Arne Carlson

“My experience with Shane Retina has been nothing but gratifying. I moved here from Pennsylvania and started care with Dr. Thomas Shane. I was introduced to Ayah Etyem for my extended care. Since coming to this office, I can now go nine weeks between shots as opposed to every 30 days back in Pennsylvania. Ayah’s injections are phenomenal. No pain… all gain!”

- Dori DeSantis Fordsoki

“The eyes have it…with Ayah! Don’t have to be frightened about getting medication injected in the eye when Ayah is doing it for you! Confident of her skills, she makes it easy for you to relax and know the results will be excellent!”

- Jeanette Ricker

“I am totally grateful and thankful to have been treated by Dr Thomas Shane and Ayah Etyem. They are amazing! Professional, kind, caring, and reassuring.

Having dry macular become wet and affecting my vision terrified me and I felt lost. Since being treated here my fear has subsided, and I feel confident in the progress in my vision from the shots that Ayah has given me. The entire staff here makes you feel comfortable. They are courteous and helpful. You are meant to feel special.

I highly recommend Shane Retina”
