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.
