I was placed on the schedule the same day by a very friendly, compassionate and understanding office staff. Upon arriving to the office, I was greeted by that same office staff and made to feel right at home. The manager/technician that saw me was very kind and thorough and Dr. Fournier exceeded my expectations with his friendly demeanor and knowledge! I will 100% recommend this Dr. and his staff! Thank you!

I had cataract surgery done this past February. I saw Dr. Fournier at least 10 times before and after surgery. My experience was great here. He was friendly, and efficient and made the whole experience so easy. I will be seeing him as my regular eye doctor from here on out as will my wife. Thank You Dr. Fournier. Also a special Thanks to Dr. Kalski Alvin Steinman

Dr. Fournier and his staff of professionals make me feel truly cared for. Always attentive, kind, caring, and concerned, when Dr. Fournier walks into the exam room, I feel I have his undivided attention. I've never felt rushed or dismissed before I've had my questions answered fully or my concerns addressed. I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Fournier and his staff!

Doctor Fournier is an excellent ophthalmologist who takes the time to explain your condition. I had cataract surgery on both eyes which went surprisingly easy and for the first time I can see without corrective lenses. I am thrilled with the results! Both Dr. Fournier and his staff are caring, warm and competent. I would recommend him highly.

Dr Fournier and his exceptional staff truly care about their patients. I have always been seen in a timely manner and am treated with the utmost respect and care. His associate, Dr. Kalski, operated on my eyes with cataract surgery and it was very successful! He called me the day before and immediately after both surgeries to make sure that I was feeling well and not experiencing any problems, I would highly recommend this professional office to the public.

Dr Fournier is the best eye doctor!!!!!

I've been to his office multiple times over the years. The first waiting room time has never been less than 1hr past scheduled appt. Doctor Fournier is very pleasant man, but waiting up to 1 1/2 hours to finally be seen by him is unacceptable and I feel they have no consideration for the patient and their time frame.

Excellent doctor!

I found Dr. Fournier in an emergency situation and couldn't have been happier. Treatment was lengthy and uncomfortable, but Dr. Fournier and his staff did everything to help and accommodate my needs. My only issue is the waiting time which is too long when you come to a regular/follow up appointment.
