I trust the surgeons at Northeastern Eye Institute. They are very experienced, conservative and tailor their treatments to the individual, particularly with LASIK where they do not take a one size fits all approach. Each procedure is customized for each patient. A no. of their staff members have undergone LASIK with great results which gives me the confidence to recommend them.
I always receive outstanding eye care when I go to the Northeastern Eye Institute in Scranton. The staff are pleasant and helpful. Dr. Arthur Jordan Jr. always provides the highest quality of eye care for me. I am very pleased with NE Eye and will continue to go there for my vision needs.
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.
I am very pleased with my visits and the things I have had done at North Eastern Eye
