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.

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.

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.

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.

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
