Very nice staff and doctor. They have been really busy both times I've been there, so the wait time is understandable. They do not follow Zocdoc appointments, so if you want to schedule an appointment on Zocdoc, make sure you call and schedule the appointment as well.

Making this appointment through ZocDoc they had no record of it when I arrived for the appointment. Another patient had the same experience as he made his through ZocDoc too.

Due to the unprofessional behavior and rudeness of one receptionist, it took me a little over 2 hours to see the doctor. The other receptionists took action as soon as they realized how long I was waiting. While this particular instanceof a long wait time could be pinned on one specific receptionist, I would have been waiting around 1 hour even if everything had gone smoothly. I did like Doctor Cohen, though. He answered all of my questions and was very friendly.

One hour wait or more before you get seen I was in the office for over 3 hours , rude front desk staff. The only staff that was nice was the staff helping you pick glasses after the eye exam. Butmy oppion is that why make an appoinment time if you arent seen until over an hour after the time. Make it more realistic for the patient please noone wants to waste a whole day waiting time is valueable especially on someones day off. Thanks

The Dr. was really nice but I (and several others) waited over 2 hours! We were all frustrated to say the least. Why bother making appointments if we can't be seen at that time? The set up is poor because duringthe visit you are seen 3 different times in 3 different parts of the office going back in forth in the small waiting area. Also, I was told at the very end to make another appointment to go back for my contact lens fitting .. why didn't we just do it there when that was one of the main reasons for my visit??
