Verified Patient Reviews
Excellent, as always. Have been going to Dr. Gunzburg for years and couldn't be happier. Highly recommended
She was very thorough and knowledgable, and was generous with her time. The preparation by the staff in advance of seeing the doctor was also impressive.
She is a mixture to true professionalism and candore. I will recommend her anytime.
I had a problem with my eyes on Christmas Eve & the office staff was very helpful & accommodated me with Dr Gunzburg seeing me right away. She also spent enough time with me to answer all questions & resolve my problem before a long holiday weekend!
Very thorough exam. She know the therapeutic area well. She did not try to push anything on me. Other doctors are always trying to get me to try so new and improved contacts, but I like what I have. She gave me the script and was glad I was happy with what I have. Told me options about lenses (I've ventured into needing readers now) and again was not pushy about choosing any specific option. I work with clinicians every day and can say she is one of the better, and easy going, physicians I have encountered.
Dr. Guzburg is a very good doctor with great bedside manner. She doesn't rush you and listens to all your concerns. Her staff is also very knowledgeable and professional.
Seeing Dr. Gunzburg a few years now. Each visit has been extremely through. Dr. Gunzburg zeroed right in on the high pressure in my eyes. She resolved this quickly
Relayed all info about procedure. Very relaxed
Dr. Allison Gunzburg was wonderful! She took a lot of time with me to go over the results of my exam as well as answer any questions or concerns I had. Her manner was cordial and professional, I felt like a valued patient, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a really great ophthalmological experience with a really smart, highly skilled and friendly physician. I will definitely be using Dr. Gunzburg again and will recommend her to my family and friends.
She was very nice!!
i appreciate her very much n definetly recommend to my friend who need catarac operation.
I think she is very precise and informative. She made me feel very comfortable.
I would recommend Dr Gunzburg and her office to anyone in need of such services. Professional and efficient.
I think it was good, everything is well organized, she's pretty knowledgeable in her work, and now I feel confident about my vision. Thank you Dr. Allison.
Dr. Gunzburg is very professional and knowledgable.
the staff there are not cooperate and very tough
The entire dental team were wonderful!!! Very professional!
Friendly and accommodating. Good first appointment for a potential issue involving follow up. Would recommend her and return.
Her office staff is really driving me away. It is difficult to get an appointment and the staff is very difficult to work with. The staff is killing this practice
Dr. Allison seemed to lack warmth although this was my second visit to her in over one year period.
I like dr. Gunsberg very much, but the office phone system is terrible. I have never called to make an appointment at a dr.?s office and left a message for a call that was not returned the following day. If it hadn't been for zoc doc I would have sought out another practice.
She was knowledgable, affable, and diligent. I was very impressed. She gets my highest possible recommendation.
Just about any eye exam I've ever had was better. Very unprofessional. Wouldn't even stand up to shake my hand or show me to the exam room door when it was done. Would barely get out of her chair.
The staff seems unorganized and the exam rooms are cluttered and dusty. However, the doctor seems to be competent.
Despite the waiting time was a bit lengthy but she was the only doctor in the office that day. If only one doctor can provide services they should schedule less appointments. She did a great job though. I has definitely become the doctor I intend to stick with.
The houskeeping and overall office conditions is poor. The staff was not friendly.
Everything worked out ideally. I had an acute eye problem out of the blue and knew nothing about ZocDoc or who to contact, but knew I should be examined as soon as possible by an opthamologist. I have insurance that allows for self-referal. A convenient local doctor was identified and the appointment was easy to make using your system They were able to see me earlier and called/texted my number to arrange that. So, very pleased with ZocDoc and would use again for other medical needs. Thanks
