“Dr. Shatz and the staff at Eye Physicians of Northampton were amazing during the whole process, from the excellent customer service from everyone to the excellent care I received. I was very skeptical and nervous about having Lasik done and Dr. Shatz and his team prepared me greatly. All questions/concerns that I had were quickly addressed. I can honestly say the surgery went some smoothly and so quickly that it was over and done with before I could even think about it. I highly recommend Dr. Shatz and Eye Physicians of Northampton.”

“One of the best decisions I made was to have Eye Physicians of Northampton diagnose and perform my cataract surgery. My vision was failing and Dr. Dostal identified the problem quickly and accurately which led to cataract surgery for both eyes. Surgeries were performed by Dr. Shield. I now have 20/20 vision in both eyes. I highly recommend Eye Physicians of Northampton.”
