I got a call from the office 15 mins before the appointment, letting me know they had to cancel because "there were no doctors in the office" that day. I understand sometimes things come up, but it was extremely rude and unprofessional to cancel 15 minutes before my appointment. Horrible! I hope no one comes to this office!
She was thorough and professional
great eye exam !
Professional, timely and very informative.
A very easy and thorough eye appointment to get an updated prescription. The entire staff were helpful and responsive to questions. I am very happy with today's visit.
The Visit was enjoyable, the staff are the best (and have a good taste in music they play in the office haha) Overall, a positive learning experience about my vision and will continue to go back!
I got to the "doctors office" to discover it was a glasses store. That wasn't opened until 11am. My appointment was for 10:30.
Incredibly knowledgeable, recommended a new contact brand that I love. The staff at Ultimate Spectacle is so helpful and nice--great experience
Very professional, knowledgeable and pleasant.
Extremely helpful and friendly.
Excellent manner, very friendly staff, professional all the way!
I have already recommended to a few friends
Very friendly and helpful, but glasses took a day longer then they originally said
Best eye exam in my entire LIFE !!!
Such a pleasant woman and experience! She gave me a diagnosis that my original optometrist didn't bring up, and I noticed my eye irritations decreasing after she prescribed me the proper medication. She is super friendly, amicable, and knowledgeable -- I'm very happy to have found her and totally trust her with my vision's health from now on.
Made an appointment with her for average eye exam to get contact prescription renewed but was seen by a new doctor at this office who seemed inexperienced and clumsy. People who did my exams had trouble operating their machines and spent over an hour fiddling with my eyes because of this, some exams had to be done multiple times, giving me quite the headache and eye pain. Once Dr. Wertheim looked at my eyes (for a second) for an issue the other doctor had seen, she just gave me extremely vague and ominous information about it and a referral to an opthamaologist. The plus side was there was no wait time and the lady at the desk was very efficient and friendly.
Really friendly and professional. Nice office. Really liked her!
It was very hurried and I didnt actually fully understand how my vision changed. Once I left I realized I was not even aware of what and how my prescription changed.
Dr. Wertheim is caring, thorough, and made me feel comfortable and cared for through my entire visit!
She didn't really listen to me, messed up my prescription and had to go back and have my glasses entirely redone because she relied on machine measurements instead of manually checking. I don't plan on going back.
Dr Wertheim was so nice and so thorough -- definitely the best and most comprehensive eye exam I've ever had.
I had a great visit. Also, the office is really nice, clean and very bright. The doctor was fantastic and quickly identified that my prescription was too high.
Great visit, very quick and easy.
Visit with Dr Wertheim was great but she does not accept my insurance as listed on her profile.
Very thorough. Provided treatment for my eye infection and suggested I pop back in to ensure all ok in a few days to check that it's clearing up properly ( she may have identified that I'm a hypochondriac :)
Best eye doctor in NYC. Great office and nice staff.
She's amazing! Very thorough, caring and extremely patient!
Professional, friendly, has great selection of frames to accompany your prescription glasses, and spends time getting to know the patient. I love being her patient!
Alina was great. I had not visited the eye doctor in years, however, I knew it was long overdue and I needed glasses. She made me feel very comfortable throughout the process and has good taste!
Dr. Wertheim was wonderful. She and her staff were very attentive to my needs, and made getting an eye exam and finding new glasses a fun experience!

Dr. Wertheim was excellent. No wait time, great bedside manner, and extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
Professional, cool, laid back, will answer your questions, change your prescriptions and follow up. Always free to meet. Very chic store front. Always stylish frames and sunglasses available. A little pricey though.

My visit with Dr. Wertheim was perfect. She was on time, and her office is immaculate. She performed the exam with extreme professionalism, using top of the line equipment. I would highly recommend Alina Wertheim to anyone who needs an optometrist.
She was very matter-of-fact, stylish, and timely and her staff was very helpful in selecting my new eyeglasses.
Through, excellent. Dr.W devoted about 1/2 hour to diagnosing an infection, prescribing medication - even calling my local pharmacy in real-time. I also received an impressively thorough eye exam. Good stuf, Zoc!
The doctor was nice and matter of fact, and she understood my situation (losing my insurance in a couple of months so just getting everything tested one last time) and suggested a quick procedure for my dry eyes that was covered by insurance. It took less than 5 minutes after the exam was done and my eyes feel better! If I needed glasses, I would go back! She also recommended a couple other things for my dry eyes that don't involve pricey prescriptions or battling the insurance company for coverage, which was considerate.
Very quick and friendly service. The doctor recommended a special for an eye condition I have. The office is very nice and conveniently located. The frame selection is on the high end side but I was not pressured to purchase there.
She is Very Professional, treat all patience with great manner and courtesy.
