"Excellent surgeon"



"I had cataract surgery which was performed by Dr. Hartzell. This was my final appointment to check the outcome of my procedure. This appointment was with Dr. Bonner. I would highly recommend The Eye Center. Very professional but also personable and caring. Dr. Bonner takes his time when he examines my eyes. I think he enjoys his work. My vision is improved to the point that I only need glasses for reading."



"The receptionists and technicians were great! Very professional and friendly. Dt Hartzell was very professional and knowledgeable about my condition. I would highly recommend this place."



"Dr Hartzell and the rest of his staff have been extremely nice and informative. I wish I would’ve gone to the eye center sooner instead of going to Geisinger and judging from the conversations in the waiting room, I’m not the only one that feels this way!"



"Always receive prompt and excellent service. Office staff are friendly and caring. Dr Hartzell is professional, knowledgeable and he takes time to explain conditions and procedures. I rate "A" plus overall for the Eye Center."
