Everyone in the office keeps thing moving, explains the various tests as they are being done. Dr. Singh goes over everything all in one appointment. Clean office and nice music to be calm with. Nice Staff.

Overall pleasant experience. Staff was friendly and attentive, and Mr. Singh made me feel very at ease. Would recommend.
Met with Dr. Singh, and he diagnosed my issue within a few minutes, and what steps to take for dealing with it.
Dr. Singh and his entire staff are fabulous. Very professional, friendly and organized. Dr. Singh quickly put my mind at easer regarding a nagging aliment. It was refreshing to experience a doctor that is both incredibly knowledgable, warm and assuring. I highly recommend, will be back and will be referring to friends and family. Thank you!
As always my visit with Dr. Singh was great! The wait was not long at all and all his staff is quite friendly. Dr.Singh is very professional. He explains everything appropriately and addresses all my concerns every time. I feel at ease going in to see him knowing all my questions will be answered with a thorough explanation. Highly reccomend.
the doctor was nice and explained to us the condition of the patient's eyes but the receptionist was a bit nasty and mean. It was raining and our first time, we could hardly find the place; we were 5 minutes late, there was a patient waiting, the receptionist said," the next time you're late, you'll have to reschedule!" ....it was raining! I wanted to leave...but I won't come back here anymore....
Very professional, extremely friendly. The office is extremely beautiful and clean - the staff is efficient and friendly.
Staffs are great! Professional. Only they need to introduce themselves before doing anything. Office is clean, well equipped. Md tries to communicate with pt using pts's own language .
The doctor was very kind and very attentive. The staff was very polite. He answered all my questions and I never felt like I was being rushed out, he took his time. I highly recommend Dr. Singh
I went in for a comprehensive eye exam as recommended when I went to get a new pair of eyeglasses the week before. Dr. Singh and his staff were pleasant, knowledgeable and efficient. There was almost no wait time and he answered every question I had with thoughtful and eloquent responses without confusing me. Highly recommended!
The doctor has great modern machines for testing. The exam was thorough and helpful
The office was extremely efficient. Within a short amount of time I was seen by the office manager who conducted the initial eye examination using a variety machines which take pictures of the eyes . I found this odd that the office manager would conduct these tests . I was then seen by an optometrist who took some other measurements for which I was given no reason why this was done . I was then seen by Dr. Singh. He was pleasant enough but did not seem to find it important to fully answer my questions, at one point saying "If you went to medical school for opthomology you would know this was not serious ..." . I found that comment rather condescending. Overall , the examination was comprehensive but I prefer a doctor who will talk with the patient and answer questions.
Everyone was very accommodating and professional! A very nice experience! Dr. Singh is extremely knowledgeable and made me feel like I was in the best of hands!
I couldn't be more pleased with the care I received from Dr. Singh! From the front desk, to the woman who did the initial eye tests, to the optometrist, and to Dr. Singh himself – they were all friendly, compassionate, professional, and skilled at what they do. The office itself is spotless and modern with a nice décor. Overall a very positive experience and I would recommend Dr. Singh to anyone who is in need of ophthalmologic services.
Dr. Singh is very good at explaining the things for your understanding. He tells you in scientific terms and then in laymen terms which I appreciate. I did feel rushed throughout the appointment. Also, I have trouble with putting things in my eyes, Dr. Singh and his technician didn't really care to put me at ease. My first interaction with the office was when the receptionist who called to confirm my appointment. She was rude and kind of hard to understand. She was the same person who greeted me. She was curt and unprofessional, she was walking around barefoot. At the end of the appointment, i had to settlement my copay in which she tried to charge me at the out of network rate, not the in-network rate. They also don't take cards so I was unable to use my flex spending card.
I found him to be concerned and his explanations of various things going on to be excellent without scaring me. His office staff is polite and courteous. The office itself is a very pleasant waiting area even thou the wait was not long at all.
Awesome! The office was very clean and zen like. Absolutely LOVE the flooring (you'll see what I mean..... mesmerizing!) The doctor was very informative and professional and his staff were equally as awesome!
Overall, the treatment and appointments with the Dr. Singh himself were great. He is knowledgeable and seems to care, although we had a long wait. Unfortunately, the experience is tarnish with the exit process. We were not aware that they only accepted cash during the for our co-payments and as we were searching our pockets, the staff stood around looking irritated, like we committed a crime. And now almost a year later, I have received a bill saying we owed money, which is suspect. Maybe the staff is more suited for a collection agency, then a doctor's office.
Dr.Singh was very professional, and I was given the appropriate testing. The wait was not long at all, even though there were other patients. I would recommend his office.
Everyone was great. The office was beautiful and I was treated well and in a timely manner. I will definitely recommend Dr. Singh.
Today was my first appointment with Dr. Singh and I am very pleased! I found him to be knowledgeable, approachable, and professional. Wonderful staff, clean place!
Dr. Singh was very thorough and professional. He makes you feel comfortable and in good hands. His staff is extremely warm and friendly. the office ambiance of quiet music and the clean environment makes something that is usually stressful, quite pleasant.
Visit was awesome and the staff was great with my 11 yr old daughter.
Doctor was very professional, I had many examination to my eyes he explains to me everything about my eyes. I'm feeling satisfied..also the assistant who did all the tests he was very well excellent. Only suggestion is the lady at the front desk wasn't cordial I recommend it to be more friendly special went patients coming for the first time. I wasn't feeling welcome...thank you.
The doctor is very polite and listen to patient.Takes time for diagnosis and give advise to treat cataract and tells good/bad point of eyes.In nutshell he is very adjustable.The only problem is there is no access for handicap patient in the building nor an elevator access to his office.The office staff is of good help.
Patient and Caring! GREAT Doctor!
Great doctor! Very knowledgable and answers all questions.
Informative, friendly, and supprtive. Wonderful experience, every MD visit should feel that way.
Being new to ZocDoc, I did not know that an appointment needed to be confirmed by the doctor's office. When I arrived, the receptionist kindly let me know that the appointment had not been completed but that she could place me on the schedule. She mentioned a twenty minute wait time, but it was much quicker than that (~5 minutes). The doctor was very thorough in explaining everything from what led to my issue to the preventative steps needed in the future. Excellent ophthalmologist!!
Doctor Singh is VERY efficient and does not waste time getting patients in and out. He still makes an effort to explain any procedure he administers and some of the science behind what he is doing. All in all, he is a competent and knowledgeable physician. Some patients may want more face time with their doctor, but I don't mind the trade off if I can get out of my appointment faster. Only con --The office's front desk needs improvement. They are a bit disorganized (took some time locating my file and patient papers appeared to be in disarray at the front desk -- one of the receptionists called me after my appointment to get information she neglected to take while I was there). Not a huge deal, so I would likely return to this office.
Very corteous staff and wait time was minimal which is a huge plus for me. Doctor Singh explained everything in detail. The optometrist Harold was excellent as well, very professional and knowledgeable. Great practice, great staff, great doctor.
Overall I found my experience at Dr. Singh's office to be very positive. The office is very modern, clean, and comfortable. The front desk staff were very polite and courteous. I barely finished completing some paperwork before I was called in to see the doctor. So that is a big plus. I hate waiting for long periods of time in a doctors office. Since this was my first visit they examined my eyes using a variety of new and interesting devices. The doctor was very kind and explained everything in detail. I never felt rushed and all of my questions were answered completely. I would highly recommend Dr. Singh to anyone looking for an excellent eye doctor.
Dr. Singh and his staff are professional, friendly and efficient. Dr. Singh took the time to explain my condition and was more than willing to answer my questions. The wait time was short and the office itself was clean and pleasant
He was wonderful! Pleasant and knowledgable
Very nice, thorough and explained everything
The doctor is attentive and informative. He gives you clear information on what's going on. The staff is sufficient.
He was great, explained everything incredibly well.
The doctor is very courteous, professional and knowledgeable. He took the time to speak with me in length about my problem. I would recommend him!
Very professional and efficient - in and out within an hour. Wish he would have warned me that the pupil dilation solution would need 4-6hours to fully wear off but other than that it was a good visit overall.
His good, picks up everything fast.
Staff was polite and courteous at check in. They explained in layman terms what each test and machine was for. Physician double checked my prescription and fully explained my test results, including what they mean clearly and what we are doing next about them. Felt well taken care of and am impressed with the overall service. This was my first visit and will continue to come here for my eye check ups even though there are other doctors closer to me - this was definitely worth the extra 30 min commute.
Dr and his staff were very thorough. Highly recommended.
Very nice doctor. The staff were nice and took good care of me. I didn't have to wait. The doctor gave me the proper care that I needed
This was my first eye exam and he explained things very well. The technician and office staff were very nice also.
Knowledgeable doctor, professional and friendly staff. Perfect combination!
The office was professional and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable!
Good doctor, staff leaves a lot to be desired. Showed up for a follow up appointment and then they tell me I need a referral. No mention of it on any of the confirmation calls. Will not waste time here again.
It was very good
Fantastic. Answered all my questions. He really makes a through out exam.
This office is extremely thorough. Dr Singh bedside manner was superb. He's warm and thoroughly explains everything to you. Highly recommend this office!
Very professional and experienced doctor. Reviews about him given by other people are 100% correct. His assistants too are good.
My visit with Dr.Akilesh was seamless and wonderful. He addressed all of my concerns clearly and I felt like he really took his time. The staff was attentive as well. I would recommend him to everyone looking for a good opthamologist.
Excellent doctor, great staff, convenient location ( two blocks away from the subway). I highly recommend.
I would highly recommend Dr. Singh to anyone in need of an eye doctor. I was nervous about having my eyes examined but he put me at ease and was easy to talk to. His staff is very helpful and friendly. No wait at all.
I was very pleased with my appointment with Dr. Singh. He introduced me to a new contact lens brand that was much better for my eyes. Would definitely recommend him.
Was excelent visit,I recommend
The Ladies at the front desk were professional and polite. I was seen in a timely fashion. From the Assistant, to the Doctor himself, I really had a wonderful experience. There is a dilation eye test that really is hard for me to go through, and they were very patient and reassuring in making it comfortable for me. They took the time to double check one of my eyes that had changed since my last testing. I would highly recommend them!
Dr. Singh and his staff are wonderful.
He was an absolute gentleman and explained everything in detail.
Dr. Singh and his staff were very friendly and professional. Dr. Singh explained everything.
I was very happy and satisfied with my visit to Dr Singh's office. Reception staff was very friendly and welcoming, even when I had to run back out to an ATM because it's cash or check only. I scheduled my appointment for 9am on a Friday and was seen right away. I was seen by both an optometrist and Dr. Singh and they both were very friendly, knowledgeable, concerned and reassuring. Dr. Singh listened to all my questions, answered confidently and explained my symptoms and what to expect out of treatment, all without talking down to me and even managing to put me at ease a little bit. I don't visit eye doctors regularly but it's good to know there is one in the neighborhood that I'm comfortable going back to if needed.
He has a lot of passion for his work, he is very positive and cares a lot for everyone !
It's a small, intimate office with very friendly staff. Dr. Singh was very friendly and informative. It was my first time at an ophthalmologist and I did a number of routine tests that I've never gotten done before. The wait time was short and I was in the office for over an hour - but the time flied by! Dr. Singh answered any questions that I had and the office is readily accessible by phone.
He was very thorough and explained everything well.. Helped me understand better. it was quick no long wait.
All good, great staff, doctor takes his time and explains every thing . would recommend !
Very professional. I felt like I was talking to a friend. Very recommended. I wish more doctors were like him.
It was a pleasant experience for a first visit! Everyone were very welcoming and accommodating.
Dr. Akhilesh was very knowledgeable and was very pleasant. I went in for a regular eye consultation and had all the routine tests done. Will go back to him if I have any other problems. Side Note: The music that they played in the waiting area was very soothing. Wish I asked what they were playing :)
I work with many doctors. He seems very intelligent and educated
The office personnel were professional and the office atmosphere is cozy. Everyone was very nice, and the doctor was very knowledgeable with mine and my daughter's amblyopia. We are thankful to have found our new family doctor for our eye care.
All the doctors were very professional and especially Ms Ling Lin. Thank you
I just want to thank the staff who were super professional and kind , and dr Singh who thoroughly explained everything ! I would recommend this office to anyone I know ! Excellent !!
He was very professional, very knowledgeable and amicable. Would definitely recommend.

Professional, friendly and explained everything in terms that I could understand.
Great Doctor, very friendly. I loved the fact that I could fill out my patient information online before my appointment. There is nothing worse than sitting in a crowded waiting room filling out a million forms. I would definitely recommend him. His staff is also excellent.
Excellent. Love all the high tech tools he has!
Peace of mind after thorough exam.
Great Doctor! Will surely recommend to a friend.
I was very pleased with the entire staff there. Was taken care of right away. Doctors very attentive to myself and my issues. I'm very glad I chose this Doctor and recommend him highly.
doctor was very thorough and attentive
Great doctor who takes the time to explain everything. Highly recommend. Excellent staff, extremely professional and courteous. Only negative is that waiting area became rather crowded with patients waiting to see Dr. Singh, on another note it was a sign that he is a popular doctor!
Amazing very nice friendly.
