I just had an ophthalmology appointment with him. He kept me waiting in excess of fifty minutes. Because I had another appointment, I left the exam room without seeing him and went to the front desk. I told them of my next appointment, that I had to leave, and I wasn’t happy. I never received a phone call from him nor the office staff to inquire about the problem, to apologize, or to reschedule. This lack of customer service and patient care smacks of arrogance. I will never use him again nor will I give him a positive referral.

Awesome experience with Dr. Frangie and the whole office. Everyone was so nice, minimal wait time, very helpful. He was very clear on how the lasik procedure would go and addressed all my concerns. He has a confident demeanor so I knew I would have the best results.

I was very nervous about my cataract surgery but was very reassured and felt well taken care of throughout the entire experience. Dr. Frangie's book, Seeing is Believing, was so informative and really helped me understand the process I would be going through. I felt confident and really looked forward to the wonderful improvement in my vision. I am so pleased with my care and the results are amazing!

Dr Frangie is located out of state for me. I travel the distance to see him because he is the best eye physician around. I would highly recommend Dr Frangie and his staff to anyone who wishes efficiency, professionalism, on- time appointments, expertise and the most advanced technology. I am scheduled for cataract surgery and can't wait. I KNOW I'm in the best of hands.

I am very very nearsighted and developed cataracts in my 40's. Being so nearsighted put me at high risk for the surgery. Eventhough I was quite nervous, I knew I was in good hands. Dr. Frangie is excellent at what he does and both surgerys went well. I have also had a couple laser treatments with good results. Grateful for all he has done for me and would absolutely recommend.

I have a rare and complicated medical condition- requiring me to be seen by Dr. Frangie for both routine and emergency care. he's listens carefully and compassionately and is a very skilled doctor- his staff are caring, attentive and happy- which says a lot about how he runs his office. he went to bat for me more times than i can count and i recommend them without reservation. THEY made ALL the difference. i felt so cared for!

Beware: If you go for an annual exam that is covered 100% by your insurance company, Beware he will find a diagnose and charge you, even if you and he knows about the same problem for years, He will charge you for that same diagnose every time you go.

I am very satisfied with the care and attention that I received from Dr. Frangie as well as all the staff and am totally satisfied with the procedure(s) performed to improve my vision. I had worn contact lenses for 40+ years and no longer need them.

From initial consultation through final follow-up exam Doctor Frangie, his staff and his associated staff at the Cataract and Laser Center were totally professional, courteous, knowledgeable, informative and thorough. The cataract procedures, themselves, we're quick and painless resulting in as perfect a result as could be expected. Though my results were good, the confidence I had in Dr. Frangie to handle any problems that might occur took away a great deal of my pre-surgical anxiety.

I had my first visit at this practice and I was very happy. This was one of the nicest medical offices I've ever visited; clean, comfortable and very professional. The care I received was first class and I was treated like I mattered. I've been raving about this practice to all of my co-workers, some of whom told me they are patients. Great practice, highly recommended!
