Verified Patient Reviews
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.
Great, as always!
Allan is always quick and professional. Getting glasses is an easy process too.
Its the best doctor i ever see,his very friendly with very high educated about optical,he has the best expirence off it.i highly represent any one to check him out thnx for you time.
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 instance of 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.
I'm a very satisfied customer
I've been going to Woodbury Optical for over 20 years with never a complaint!
Doctor who provides great eyecare.
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. But my 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 during the 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??
