Hi Michelle, I'm glad you found this site. Most of the "action" on these boards happens under the choroidal melanoma. You might want to post there as well. There are a number of people that post who have been treated in Philly. Best regards, Anne Marie

Hi. I know it has been a long time, but could you tell me your experience with Dr. Shields? A family friend and ophthalmologist has told me that they are the best in the world in regards to Iris issues. I have a mass on my iris (either some type of tumor or nevus but they seem to be leaning towards melanoma). I am considering going there. Any insight is appreciated. I hope your daughter is doing well.
