What Our Customers
Are Saying

Great place. Clean and professional office. Dr. Jordan is a fantastic doctor. I got cataract surgery on both eyes and it changed my life 100%. Great staff. Highly recommend this practice.

I suffered from a corneal abrasion suddenly while I was in town for business. The group was very responsive in getting back to me and squeezing me in on the same day. They recently incorporated a new computer system and I can see the benefits to that implementation. It made the check-in process very easy and quick. Dr. Fox was attentive and compassionate to my problem. She prescribed my prescription and laid out a clear path for me to take as soon as I flew home. Thank you to the team!

Northeast eye is fantastic. I had 2 cataracts removed and new lens put in. Everyone was polite, efficient, and helpful. Dr Frattali is great. Very detailed, very reassuring and even quietly sang while operating on my eyes. No discomfort. I felt well cared for and informed the entire time. Would highly recommend them. I left there not having to wear glasses for now. I look forward to their follow up.

They did a great job with my Lasik procedure. They were polite and professional and kept me informed during the whole process. I was able to schedule my Lasik the same week I had my evaluation.

Northeastern Eye Institute is one of the best eye care practices in the area, every time I go there the staff is friendly, considerate and helpful. When I'm with my doctor he listens to my concerns, and explains to me, so I can understand, the issues I was having with my eyes. Unlike other doctors who have rushed through my visit as if I were on a assembly line. I would highly recommend Northeastern Eye to anyone who is looking for an eye doctor.

Had an appointment last week with Dr.Walsh.. she was awesome ..All the office staff was masked and they had hand sanitizer around the office.when I paid with my credit card they even sanitized it before giving it back to me.. the lady that helped me pick out my frames was very friendly and knowledgeable about the frames that would look nice on me .the whole process from checking in and picking frames out to sitting down to place my order took under 90 minutes. Will definitely recommend them to people
