Dr.Schneiderman is very sweet, caring and professional! I was fortunate and went day before labor day weekend, so he had some time to spare and took his time to explain everything and did the most thorough exam. I'd recommend him to anyone!

I had a great experience with the front desk and Dr Schneiderman. Maybe because it is new Xmas and NYE, there weren't many patients. The front desk was friendly and efficient. The assistant and Dr S are informative and patient. He took his time and explained everything and answered all my concerns.

Doctor was great. Office was disgusting - no soap in the bathroom and the soap dispenser was broken - I informed the reception staff twice the and they brushed it off, only to go back to playing on their cell phones while multiple patients used the bathroom with no soap. How does an eye doctors office not have any soap in the bathroom and a soap dispenser that had clearly been broken for a while based on the receptionists response? It is an environment where staff and patients are constantly touching eyes! Completely disgusting and I will never go back here as a result. The eye Dr I saw was good otherwise.

The other reviews are spot on. Dr Schneiderman was good, but the wait was ludicrous. If you can find another doctor you probably should unless you're ok waiting for almost 2 hours to be seen. Besides the wait, though, no complaints. He was a nice guy and seemed knowledgeable.

The reception desk people are not particularly warm or friendly - erroneously told me my CareFirst insurance card was unacceptable. I had to go to the supervisor to straighten that out. However, I never have to wait long to get an appointment or to sign in when I arrive.

Dr. Schneiderman was excellent. He listened well and answered my questions. I spent about an hour and a half in total to do all my tests (including glaucoma testing) so the time wasn't too bad because I had to wait for my pupils to dilate. The office was also super easy to get to. The office was very open and spacious. The receptionists when I came in weren't the friendliest. I waited for a bit just standing there before I said hello and one told me just a minute. The other one looked right at me when I walked up and looked back down. When I was leaving, though, there were two new receptionists and they were super nice and helpful. They got me copies of my test results and were very pleasant. All in all, a very good visit.

I've seen Dr. Schneiderman for the last 4-5 years. I'm a Type I diabetic and he has always been extremely thorough and attentive. He suggested that I see him 2 x's a year as a preventative measure, and I appreciate the foresight. I recommend him to anyone with any type of eye issues, from vision to diabetes.

I needed to see someone in a hurry and Dr. S. had availability and took my insurance. The office is big and sprawling with one main waiting area right when you walk in, and smaller waiting areas in the back near the doors to the doctor's offices. It's a sea of honey/coral walls and cabinets and felt a little dated, but comfortable enough. Dr. S. was great and quickly figured out what was going on with my eyes -- which of course was not what I thought it was. He was thorough and took his time. All in all a good experience and I will go back as needed.

If you have a special case - you're curious why you've suddenly lost vision like what happened to me - he's not going to help you trouble shoot. It's by the book only - and that, for me, was not helpful at all, since I had a case that needed some extra investigation.

I'm thrilled to have found Dr. Schneiderman through ZocDoc. Often routine checkups can feel cold and procedural, but that's not the case with him. You can tell that he is passionate about his work by the way he explains the why behind any test he does or recommendation he makes. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

This doctor was completely unknowledgeable about a very common eye condition. When asked about my future prognosis, he told me that "these things cant be quantified with statistics." He should spend more time reading the medical literature in his field. I learned more from a google search than from spending the hour waiting for him to tell me that he knows nothing about his field. I would not recommend this doctor.
