“Thoughtful, kind man. Always with a sincere smile. Very knowledgeable and careful.” – Joanne M.

“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.”Kathy Q.
