"Excellent Doctor. He takes the time to actually speak to you and engage in true and meaningful Doctor/Patient conversation."
"I have been coming here (Fairhaven office) for 20 years, since we moved back to town in 2020. The office staff are very helpful and thorough, and Dr. Ronald Mastrolia is very professional and engaging, and I always learn new things when I speak with him. I had concerns about macular degeneration (tested positive on both sides via 23 &Me DNA test), and he spent time discussing this with me. I felt so much better after my eye exam. I've never had a negative experience here. All the staff were also very accommodating and patient with my son who has significant mental health issues."
"My daughter and I have been going to Eye Health Vision Centers in Fairhaven for many years. We are always greeted by Jillian in a professional and friendly manner. She has a way of making you feel comfortable and really cares what is going on in your life. The rest of the staff is so wonderful because my daughter has Autism and they are so patient and kind to her. Dr. Mastrolia is very knowledgeable in his field and takes the time to explain things and asks you if you have any questions or concerns. The Optical department is great to deal with. They take as much time as you need to make sure your questions are answered and are always friendly. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for great eye care."
