Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

    I just had my first appointment with Dr. Froid and he is very personable and knowledgeable. He spent over an hour with my exam and his fee was very reasonable. I feel quite lucky to have found him and I am looking forward to my next visit.

    I've been going to him for several years now. He's a thorough doctor and a real pleasure to chat with. I've been very happy going to this practice and I'll go no where else!

    Dr. Froid is very friendly and professional. He knows his business and he takes care of you. I don't think you can ask for anything more. He also doesn't try to oversell you on the glasses. He lets you pick out your style. He gives you options and let's you decide what suits you best. Thank you Dr. Froid!

    Best eye Dr. around! I have been seeing Dr. Froid for over 20 years and would never think of going to anyone else. They are always able to help me and answer all my questions. And, let me tell you there were lots. Trying all different types of contacts till found what worked best. Couple visits later and decided to try wearing just one. Super patient with me. TWO THUMBS UP.
