The wait was about 10 minutes. First saw his assistant, very pleasant.. Dr. Rabinovich seemed very knowledgeable and explained what may be going on. I will try what he prescribed, then go back for a follow up, and I hope whathe prescribed is the answer. I would recommend the office of Dr. Rabinovich .

Dr. Rabinovich was excellent. I was frustrated when the technician put drops into my eye, then when I squinted in pain she said "Oh, these burn a bit." To which I immediately responded, "That would have been nice to know BEFOREyou put them in my eyes." She claimed that if she'd told me, I wouldn't open my eyes, thing is, she didn't put the drops in both eyes at once, so obviously, I did open my eyes and I'm certain other people do the exact same thing. It's really not okay to cause harm to someone without any warning. When this same technician had to take photographs of my eye, I didn't trust her, and it doesn't feel great to be completely uncomfortable and nearly blind. (without contacts and my pupils dilated)

It was a great visit. The technician that I met first was very polite and very professional. Then I met Dr Rabinovich, he was very patient and answered all my questions. It was a good experience and I was happy withthe way I was treated. I already have an appointment with Dr Rabinovich for my son, next week. I highly recommended him to anyone who is looking for a good doctor. Thank you

When the prescription they called in to the pharmacy was expensive and not covered they worked withthem to find a new prescription that was more price appropriate.

My first visit in Dr Rabinovich's office was very nice. Although I'm not from U.S. I didn't have any problems to understand the helpful staff. Dr. Rabinovich is a very kind person. He seems to be a professional opthalmologist who likeshis job and has a lot of experience. He explained to me all ways to eliminate my problem and answered my questions. I am very satisfied. For sure I'll come back to Dr Rabinowich - trustworthy specialist for me.

First and foremost, I needed to cancel my initial appointment on 8/6/2015 last minute due to my own work related issue- the office staff was very accommodating and didn't hesitate to reschedule it for me. I had the great honor ofmeeting Dr.Rabinovich on 8/13/2015- he was very attentive when it came to listening to my 3 year battles/woes with recurrent chalazions and the myriad of hands I went thru for evaluation and treatments. Being a health care practitioner myself, it was refreshing to see a physician whom was concerned with addressing my medical issue at hand rather then subjecting me to further unnecessary consults or procedures that would benefit him. Dr.Rabinovich did what was BEST FOR ME and that is something I know because, after 3 years and 6 eye specialists later I finally came into the hands of a physician whom was able to remedy my pain immediately via a simple procedure that I had requested the 6 other eye specialists to do- without me even mentioning it (keep in mind this is coming from a patient who is also a Healthcare practitioner hence, the insight in medicine). The office staff was very proficient in obtaining the prior authorization from my insurance company and after 30 min from my initial meeting with Dr.Rabinovich- I was able to get the procedure done. On a side note I asked Dr.Rabinovich if I should get some plastic surgery for my left eyelid, rather then saying yes and not concerning himself with potential monetary gain from my request- he was honest and said no I did not need it... A remarkable physician with fine moral character are the traits that Dr.Rabinovich possesses and I can honestly say after 3 years of this arduous battle with chalazions -I do not have anymore pain thanks to Dr.Rabinovich
