Dr. Chao performed surgery on my right eye, he explained everything in advance and reviewed all aspects of the surgery and subsequent follow up visits. The staff was very friendly and I had little to no anxiety for the procedure.

Ken M.

I’ve been under the care of Dr. Fazelat for several years, then most recently Dr. Hall for cataract removal. I have nothing but praise for both physicians: their expertise, manner, willingness to spend time explaining conditions and treatment. In short, I could not have been treated with greater expertise and respect elsewhere.

Susan L.

I’ve been Dr Seigal’s patient for many years and totally trust him. When he feels it is appropriate, he refers me to a specialist, most recently Dr. Hall. Both doctors are caring and personable and are cautious in their treatment recommendations. I never feel rushed, all my questions and concerns are always answered.

Therese B.

We are so very blessed to have the care team at Medical Eye Center! Dr Hennessy and Dr Elia literally saved my eyesight!! The Medical Eye Center team is like having the resources of Boston available to us in Manchester!! The entire practice right from reception to the doctors are hands down the best around!!

Lisa O.

I have received the very best in medical eye care for over a decade with Dr Siegal. I have also provided anesthesia services for several of the surgeons in the practice, and know that when the time comes for surgical intervention, I can proceed with the utmost confidence in the quality of surgical care which will be provided.

Colleen M.

Dr. Hall is excellent. I have a high degree of confidence in the care provided by him and the staff at Medical Eye Center. Thank you Dr. Hall and staff!

Alisa B.

Everyone was friendly, professional and so organized. I would recommend them to anyone in need of eye care.

Annette G.

Dr. Elia is very trustworthy and honest about my eyes. He quickly acts and does a great job. He listens and answers your questions until you don’t have any more of them. A wonderful experience.

Nick L.

I was able to get an appointment within a very reasonable time from the referral. Dr. Fazelat explains everything in easy-to-understand terms, and I have actually given his name to a friend with macular degeneration.

Cindy G.

I was so comfortable with the entire staff and especially Dr. Elia at his office and during surgery. All the Teams were very helpful, friendly and caring. I highly recommend The Medical Eye Center.

Pamela S.

Everyone was very nice and everybody did their job very well and we’re very polite.

William M.

Dr. Elia and his staff were very knowledgeable.

Lydia P.

The team at 250 River Rd is great! Wait time was minimal and everyone was nice. Dr. Siegal explained everything he was doing.

Ray F.

Dr. Fazelat is obviously a very experienced and competent doctor concerning any problem that one may be experiencing with vision. His confidence in his own ability to treat just about any vision problems competently naturally inspires confidence in his patients. I would trust his judgment totally with any treatment he might prescribe. I don’t believe you could find a finer eye specialist in this area. Let’s hope he works for another 10 years at least.

Ed Dobe.

Ever since my first visit years ago I have had excellent service and excellent care and have recommended Medical Eye Center to everybody when the subject of eye care has come up. Dr. Hennessey has been amazing — clear explanations, willing to listen, and performed my cataract surgeries perfectly.

David B.

I absolutely love the Doctors, Staff and how close it is to Hooksett. It’s awesome having a single place to go for all of our family’s eye care needs.

Dr. Slenz is amazing. Everything went smoothly from day one. I had my brows and eyelids done by Dr, Slenz. He is excellent at what he does. The best experience. Thank you to everyone who took care of me.

Michael P.

Dr Fazelat is awesome. I wish every doctor had the expertise and concern that he does. 10 stars to him.

Tim Z.

It’s unfortunate to get BRVO at such a young age, but it was a blessing to meet Dr. Elia. A man of great character and skill, I believe he is one of the best retina specialists on the East Coast and in the United States. Yes, that’s what the ophthalmologists who do my annual vision exams say.

Lin L.

I love the whole team there. They are very accommodating and friendly.

Paul G.

My cataract surgery was most pleasant and uneventful. The whole team explained every detail and put me at ease. Everything went well and my follow-up visit was quick and easy. Dr. Hennessy is tops!

Janet S.

My visits are always pleasant. Staff and doctors are friendly and accommodating.

Bonnie L.

Both my late mom and I have always gotten excellent care and treatment here. She was very tiny and had a lot of medical needs. They were so great with her, making her laugh and making her comfortable. Dr. Siegal has always been wonderful with me. It’s so hard to find a Dr. you like these days. I’m glad I’m a patient here. They’re always very quick but also take the time needed with patients to make sure everything is addressed.

Lisa P.

I have confidence in the depth of knowledge the providers at Medical Eye Center have.

Carolyn F.

As a patient for almost 30 years, I continue to receive the same excellent care at all locations and all Doctors. Currently seeing Dr. Hennessy, I feel fully confident that I always receive excellent care from Dr. Hennessy and all the staff who prepare me to see her. Facilities are conveniently located, easily accessible with sufficient parking and set up to allow ease of movement for any disabilities. I feel very confident in the excellent doctors that treat me. Thank you for such wonderful care!

Scott L.

Great experience with all the doctors I saw. Getting a timely appointment is easy. Any questions I had were answered quickly. I have recommended The Medical Eye Center to many friends that need cataract surgery or droopy eyelid correction.

Sharon R.

I really appreciated Dr. Hall’s kind personality. This helped me feel comfortable with the procedure. During each visit, he was very attentive to my concerns and made sure I understood what to expect from the surgery. My vision has improved significantly since the operation. I will definitely come back to him for all my eye care. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.

René L.

Nothing but accolades to everyone involved.

I am a “frequent flyer” at The Medical Eye Center. I have several complicated eye problems with additional complicating factors. I have needed emergency care nights and weekends. Everyone has ALWAYS been kind and patient and accommodating. I have seen other eye specialists but The Medical Eye Center is my provider of choice. I would highly recommend them for any of your eye care needs.

Was much easier than expected. Doctor made me comfortable and explained everything. I was surprised at how easy it was. The office staff and the nursing were excellent. Made me less nervous.

Patricia C.

Excellent care and confidence with Dr. Fazelat.

Ned G.

Dr. Dane Slentz was bright and insightful. His exam was thorough and comprehensive. Dr. Slentz answered all my questions to a tee. Dr. Slentz was foresighted in prescribing medical prescriptions necessary to treat my symptoms. Very impressive medical treatment and consultation.

Stephen J.

A great and informative session with Dr Fazelat and staff. Keep up the wonderful attention to detail while making sure the patient is comfortable and satisfied!!!!

Francis P.

Dr. Jason Hall is a premier glaucoma specialist. Dr. Hall explains the patient’s symptoms and treatments prescribed in clear language. I have uveitis and wide-angle glaucoma so it is a balancing act to get the anti-inflammation drops and anti-pressure drops in harmony, so one does not negatively impact the other. Dr. Hall’s on going treatment is greatly appreciated.

Stephen J.

Dr. Fazelat explained every procedure in terms I could understand. I have had a great experience with the Medical Eye Center.

Pete F.

I appreciate Dr. Elia’s high expertise and clear communication.

Richard J.

From my primary doctor, Dr Hennessy to my optometrist Dr Siegal to my cosmetic surgeon Dr Slentz, all have been wonderful. The entire staff from front desk to technicians to scribes have been both friendly and fun. I have, in fact, already recommend them all.

Michael B.

I have been extremely satisfied with my care at The Medical Eye Center.

Rosemary S.

Dr Hall was terrific, he is very competent. He explained everything to my satisfaction and has a pleasant and friendly demeanor.

Dr Hall and the staff on River Rd were pleasant and extremely helpful during the testing and pre op experience. Dr Hall’s explanations as was what to expect was drama free and created a much better experience for all. Would recommend highly to anyone facing cataract surgery.

Linda P.

My experiences with Dr.Xu and all the medical eye staff have always been good. I feel very confident that I am getting the very best care that is available, with Dr. Xu as my doctor.

Dr Siegel was fantastic, thorough,considerate and caring. He and Dr Xu have provided excellent care.

Catherine H.

Always professional service: a wonderful mix of latest technology with the personal touch and expertise.

Susan Z.

I have had Botox for hemifacial spasm over several years which often resulted in ptosis of the eyelid and inability to blink impairing my vision over an extended period of time. Dr Slentz is the first doc to provide real relief without any side effects. He’s become my new hero!

Judy S.

Amazing and caring staff. Would recommend to anyone for their eye care needs.

Brian S.

Every appointment (for a left eye injection for ARMD) is extremely positive. Everyone is kind, intelligent, and efficient. The wait time is negligible, if at all. The diagnostics are thorough. My doctor and his assistant are incredible: clear communication, welcoming, and so good at the injection process that I hardly notice it at all anymore. I have recommended you all, and Dr. Elia in particular. Thank you.

Elizabeth D.

It was quite upsetting to find out that my wet AMD would require regular injections for the rest of my life. I am grateful for the care and attention I have received at the Medical Eye Center. Dr. Fazelat helps me feel safe and I know I’m receiving the best care available.

Christine K.

Have been a patient of the Medical Eye Center for 10 years. Currently being treated by Dr. Hennessey. Very pleased with the care and treatment received from the staff at Medical Eye Center.

Jamie G.

I have been going to Medical Eye Center for many years … I have never been disappointed in the level of care… The Best…

Frank T.

A note of appreciation –

Having recent cataract surgery in both eyes I would like to thank all who cared for me, at various locations of The Medical Eye Center, especially Dr. Xu. All were kind, skilled, and efficient with my time and energy. The results are amazing – the best vision of my life. All in all a very pleasant and very rewarding experience. I wholeheartedly recommend The Medical Eye Center to all who need eye surgery.

P.S. In my opinion, Dr. Sarah Xu is exceedingly competent, kind to the extreme and thus open to any help she might need from the holy spirit. This is important to me.

James R. Jensen (11/20/2023)

I was referred to Dr. Elia by Dr. Williams of Manchester-Bedford Eye Associates.  I had originally been told by Dr. Elia that I had bleeding in my eyes due to type 2 Diabetes. I was very scared not knowing what to expect.

Dr. Elia explained exactly why it was happening and about the floaters I was seeing in my eyes. This was blood vessels bleeding out into the eyes, He told me that laser treatment would help my eyes which I hoped it would.  I was so scared I was jumping out of my skin.  The chairside manner of Dr. Elia and his very capable assistant Ashlyn calmed me down quite quickly.  During my first laser treatment Ashlyn just lightly laid her hand on my shoulder (this was prior to COVID) and my horrible anxiety just melted away.  She almost made me feel like I was in a trance, It was like she was transferring a positive energy from her hand into my body.  The Doctor and Ashlyn talked me through the entire procedure every step of the way letting me know what to expect.

I then needed an injection of medicine into my right eye, AGAIN I was so nervous about a needle going into my eye, but I knew Dr Elia would take care of me as he had done before.  That procedure not as bad just a pinch or sting when the needle went in, of course he had numbed it up and there was less down time and less pain than the laser treatments. I have had several injection treatments and my eyesight is getting better, Almost no floaters to speak of, almost no loss of vision in my right eye and left is okay anyway.

I love that the Medical Eye Center is a spotless, comfortable and comprehensive office to visit when you need help with your eyes and the professionalism in my mind rates the best I know for a Medical facility.

Doug G. (09/12/2023)

I was referred by my ophthalmologist to Dr. Elias at the Medical Eye Center for a problem with my vision. Dr. Elias is a caring and compassionate physician. I appreciate his knowledge and expertise. I completely trust him with my eye care. My experience with the office staff and technicians has also been positive. I highly recommend the Medical Eye Center. I love Dr. Elias. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Nancy B. (09/06/2023)

I have been a patient of the Medical Eye Center for many, many years [20 or more] and cannot say enough positive things about the practice!  In my tenure with them, I have seen all of the physicians at one time or another. I have received exceptional care from each and every one of them. I was diagnosed with glaucoma years ago and I honestly feel I would have no vision if not for MEC!  I have seen them during regular office hours and have had emergency treatment on several occasions. Emergency treatment has always been provided the same day. The office staff is very pleasant and the office itself is friendly, warm and inviting. Having been a “Frequent Flyer” for so many years, I know most of the doctors by first name and I am always greeted by them when I visit the office.  Regardless of who the primary doctor is in their office, the others are all capable and very willing to fill in when needed.

The office is always busy and sometime there can be a bit of a wait, but that wait is far outweighed by the quality of care received. I truly feel having my vision care provided by the Medical Eye Center has given me a great quality of life.

At the time of our move to New Hampshire, Dr. Campbell, my glaucoma specialist, was retiring from the practice at Dartmouth Hitchcock. I did not need to ask for a referral. He said, “I think you will do well with Dr. Amy Hennessy at the Medical Eye Center in Manchester.” He continued, “I would have liked to have had Dr. Hennessy follow me here, but that did not work out.”  During these years, the cornea of the right eye had become diseased.  It became  necessary to remove the eye which did not respond to treatment.  There were three choices where that surgery could be done for adults, for whom it is very uncommon.   I chose Dr. David A Weinberg, a Concord reconstructive surgeon associated with the Medical Eye Center.  Again, the outcome, for what needed to be done, was completely successful.  I have required care for issues apart from glaucoma that have cropped up.  I am focused on keeping the limited vision I have.  I avow that the Medical Eye Center is as well.  Saving vision with the most up-to-date solutions seems a personal  mission for everyone in the practice.  The staff and physicians are patient and considerate.  My twin sister, Priscilla Sands, is also a glaucoma patient with the Medical Eye Center, treated by Dr. Hall and Dr. Hennessy.   Dr Elia has also been part of our care team.  Priscilla is an artist. I am a photographer.  We thank God for what has been done for us to keep us at what we love to do.  

Diana H. (09/06/2023)

Thank you Dr. Hall for giving me my eyesight back! I am so thankful for you. You are a wonderful doctor and did an amazing job on my eyes! You are a true blessing. I would highly recommend Dr. Hall to anyone for Cataracts or Glaucoma treatment!

I went to Dr Elia a couple years ago, he told me I had cataracts. I waited 2 years and decided to have the worst one removed. The next day at my follow up appointment I asked Dr Elia how soon I could get my other eye done. He got me an appointment within 2 weeks. I felt so comfortable with Dr Elia he is a great Doctor, and his whole staff was so good to me. I encourage anyone needing eye surgery to see Dr Elia.

After being misdiagnosed by my eye md I ended up seeing dr Xu. I actually got an appointment same day after explaining what was happening and Im so glad I did because it was serious. Dr. Xu knew immediately the issues and then I was able to follow up 2 days later with dr Elia. He was well informed and was able to go over current and long term treatment. I was really lucky to have found The medical eye center.

Dr. Sara Xu explained everything, listened to me, and was a perfect surgeon for my cataract surgery. Both eyes are now 20/20. My recovery was very good with no complications. Her personality and professionalism are outstanding.

I just had my 2nd cataract lens implanted by TMEC. Dr. Shaker did my left eye in 2019 and the right eye by Dr. Xu last week. I now have perfect 20/20 vision in both eyes. Including the staff at BASC Eye Center and TMEC (Bedford & Manchester), I probably dealt with 20+ individuals in person or on the phone. Everyone I encountered was caring, kind and professional. TMEC is simply outstanding. Very highly recommended.
