Not thrilled. Separate person briefly checks your eyesight. Then you wait AGAIN to see doc, who was not really personable. Also the glasses there are super duper EXPENSIVE!!

It was a pleasant experience that belied my earlier fears. He answered my questions relative to my bilateral cataracts; when I should go for surgery; and he even assured my that he did not see vasculitis in my eyes. I am happy that I will see him again in July.

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. Hetook 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 phoneswhile 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 formy 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 theforesight. I recommend him to anyone with any type of eye issues, from vision to diabetes.
