Good service, but would recommend better hours for the patients, for the eye glass center, often long wait times, closed during lunch, etc...

I had been going for my annual eye exams and was always pleased with the service and staff. I just had my cataract surgery with Dr. Fichman and everything went perfectly. From the nurses prepping me for surgery, Dr. Fichman’s expertise, the entire experience was seamless and successful. The staff is friendly and welcoming. When it’s time to do my other eye, I know where I’m going. Thank you Dr. Fichman for giving me back my vision!

It’s just alright. Kind of like an assembly line to me. Different surgeon and doctor every time. Everyone nice and polite and the girls who work there are great but reminds me of cattle prodding. Drs don’t tell you anything really so you have to press them for info. Too many patients I believe.

Really friendly ?? I am treated like a friend. A coffee machine "K-Cups" would be really great . The office is isolated from any other business and the parking is great

Both the assessment provided for Laser Vision Surgery as well as the in depth information on preparing for the surgery are comprehensive and outstanding. I would not hesitate to recommend the Fichman Eye Center. The staff is highly skilled, extremely competent, knowledgeable, and professional.

The optometrists who conducted the eye exam and the glaucoma test was very friendly and professional. The ophthalmologist, Dr. Tu, who performed additional tests to make sure my pre-diabetic condition was not causing any other problems also was friendly and professional.

My cataract surgery was a total success. I could not be more pleased with the results. Dr. Fichman has shown me that he cares very much about my total experience.... from my first appointment through my surgery, to my post surgery visits and including my few lingering questions. Thank you Dr. Fichman. You are appreciated. Judith Cassetti - Manchester
