I honestly feel like this doctor and this office are just looking for the best way to make money even if its not in the best interest of the patient. I would never recommend this office or doctor . The doctordid not even take the time to listen to my concerns or take the proper procedures to check on my diagnosis before jumping to the sale of contact lenses.

They don't do the entire eye exam in one sitting, which they don't warn you about and is very annoying. Also, they were not clear on pricing. They did not explain until after the fact the cost difference between contact lensand eye glass exams. Ended up paying when I wasn't expecting to, then on top of that had to make a follow-up appointment for the second part of the eye exam. Don't really recommend.

My visit with Dr Aliya was fantastic! Her staff was knowledgeable and friendly and I was greeted immediately with a courteous smile as soon as I walked in the door. I received quality care, was in and out quickly, and theservice was excellent. She has a great selection of eyewear and prices were good. Making an appointment was easy using her online service, and you can even upload all your health information so that when you walk in you simply sign your name. I've never had so much fun at a doctors appointment in my life! Would highly recommend. Linda W.

Saw me last minute for an eye emergency. Saw me as soon as I arrived, was very informative on my condition. Prescribed me an awesome eye drop that literally took the pain away immediately and helped me heal very fast. Iwas back to wearing my contacts within the week. Her staff is also very kind, friendly and helpful.

Dr. Hot was a pleasure; she was professional in a sense that she explained everything to me during our session, but not professional to the point where it felt impersonal and mechanical. She was very friendly and answered questions very excitedlyand without judgement. The staff were exceptional as well. Everyone was customer service oriented and I really enjoyed that.

I would highly recommend Dr. Hoyt to my friends and will definitely see her again. She took the time to answer my questions and gave me the MOST thorough eye exam that I have ever had! I switched to her basedon the positive reviews she had online and because of the "average" service that my previous eye doctor had provided. Dr. Hot was the only doctor to 1) identify that I had damage to my Optic Nerve from a previous sinus surgery; 2) identify that my current reading glasses were not strong enough; 4) that I had problems seeing items from a distance and 5) that I should wear glasses all the time to avoid straining my eyes from putting my reading glasses on and off. Her staff was friendly and she has a very nice office. Also, the arrangement of eye frames by styles/ prices helped make choosing a sturdy/ affordable frame much easier. (Her office address is listed on the site as 203 E 121st Street but the entrance is actually located on 3rd Avenue. Walk to to the corner of 3rd Avenue and 121st to locate the entrance. That way you will not wander around on 12st Street wondering how to get in....like I did. lol)

She was knowledgeable about how my age and working conditions were affecting my eyesight and prescribed reading glasses but made it clear that I did not absolutely NEED them. She was very friendly and relaxed. Of course the ladies up frontat the eyeglass case tried to sell me the more expensive frames, but I settled on cheap ones (I only use them a few times a month) and got them for free on my plan.

The wait time was the first problem. And one of her office workers had an attitude, and seemed unwilling to help me make change after my eyes had been dilated. Other than those things, it was great.
