I have been seeing Dr. Talbi for 3 years and every visit is always pleasant. Her and her staff are always considerate of my time and get me in and out of the office at a decent time. I would highly recommend.

The front desk staff was not the most welcoming or friendly, but Dr. Talbi was fantastic and was able to fix an rx that a previous doctor screwed up. They ordered me a trial pair of contacts and told me theywould call me in about 1 week to have me pick them up. I never received a call after 10 days, so called myself to learn that "they just arrived". Again, front desk staff was not helpful when I showed up to pick up the trial contacts, but otherwise Dr. Talbi was awesome.

Waited over 45 minutes to be seen for my routine annual eye exam. When I went to order my contact lenses I was told they didn't carry them. So I had to come back for another appointment to be fitted for different lenses. Huge waste of time!

I went to the 40th street location for my eye exam. Very clean and modern office. I saw both Dr. Talbi and an assistant and both were very professional and I felt like I was in good hands, both with theirwealth of knowledge and bedside manner. Definitely will be returning next year when it's time for another eye exam.

I've been to Dr. Talbi for Annual eye exams before but I will no longer return. She could not treat my chronic dry eye and refer me to someone else. She told me to make an appointment for my next annualwith her. Why should I return when she couldn't treat my problem. I'll take my business elsewhere!

Dr. Talbi is incredible and thoughtful, I love knowing my eye care is in her hands. The front office of the downtown location definitely leaves something to be desired - they are all very cranky. It's worth putting up with it to get to Dr. Talbi though.

I loved Dr. Talbi. She was recommended by Hoya/Seiko and someone who would do all the necessary measurements for my progressive lenses. She is a professional and caring person but Hoya/Seiko got it wrong. She does not do fittings for glasses.As a result, I left my visit frustrated as the nature of my concerns were not addressed thoroughly. According to Zocdoc, Dr. Talbi is an "optometrist" so I thought she would be able to measure me for progressive lenses. What I found out is that she is not an "optician" and she said she could not provide me with the measurements for my lenses. She did give me an eye exam and yet I still did not receive measurements for my pupil distance which is done by an optician. When I asked if she would fit me for glasses she said that was the job of the optician. After my visit, I still did not have all the measurements I need to get my progressive lenses. The office where she worked from had two "opticians" on the premises and yet they did not have the equipment to measure my frames for my progressive lenses. I left the office frustrated as I did not get what I went there for.

I've had issues with my vision for a while and I like having the option of wearing contacts from time to time. I switched to see Dr. Talbi and while it's been trial and error with getting me into contacts, Iappreciate that not only has she helped me find a brand that I finally feel comfortable in, but she's been super patient with me throughout the process. I've had a very difficult time wearing contacts over the past several years, I'm so thankful I switched to see Dr. Talbi this year and I'm finally on the right path to being able to wear contacts again!

The treatment went really quickly and was very direct with treatment. The only issue I had was that the door to the room i was treated in was wide open and a patient was being seen right around the corner. Idon't feel comfortable with other people knowing why I am there and being treated.
