"There are fewer than 20 pediatric ophthalmologists left in the state to serve a large population of children who need our help to see," says Shivani Sethi. "That means I’m busy, but I find it even more rewarding to work with children throughout my day. I’ve never met a pediatric ophthalmologist who isn’t happy doing their job.

When a little purple spot first appeared on Shelly Matheson’s ankle, it seemed like something curious that she would mention to her internist. Then, it got bigger and painful. After years of no diagnosis, she went to Emory Clinic's Special Diagnostic Services, which gave her the right diagnosis.
Emory Clinic’s Special Diagnostic Services is a place for doctors to refer adult patients with perplexing symptoms—some who have gone years with undiagnosed diseases. Meet Dr. W. Clyde Partin Jr., the director of Emory Clinic’s Special Diagnostic Services, who seems like a kinder, gentler version of television's Dr. Gregory House.
