Verified Patient Reviews
They said their "internet was down" three days prior and so couldn't see that I had booked a week ago. Because of this, they hadn't looked up insurance to verify that it covers the appointment. took 30-40 minutes between the two of us to contact insurance (this part was insurance company's fault). If they couldn't access the list of ZocDoc patients, they should have called ZocDoc and found out to make sure they had the appointment in the system.
The admin staff is beyond helpful and nice. They helped me with insurance issues and were very supportive. Dr. Wen is also great, as well as her assistants. Two enthusiastic thumbs up. The appointment did take a while, schedule plenty of time.
I highly recommend you do NOT visit this doctor's office - unless you love waiting hours in a doctors office. I arrived for my 1pm appointment 15 mins early - and I did not leave the office until 3:35pm. I probably only spent about 10-15 mins with Dr. Wen. While she's generally friendly, and her assistant Michelle was great, there's just no reason to have a patient wait nearly 2.5 hours and not provide a single explanation or even an apology. I understand that sometimes delays happen, but this is just too much and seems to be a pattern at this office, based on other reviews.
Dr. Wen was very detail oriented checking my eyes. I can only come for late afternoon appointment due to personal reason. She was very patient attending her patient even on Friday late afternoon. Thanks.
Very good, no problem.
Exceptional service. Thank you Dr. Wen. Highly recommended to my family and friends.
The doctor was great, kind, and informative. The staff was great. Everyone was so kind, considerate and helpful. I would recommend family and friends anytime. I was very happy with my care. I truly felt that my concerns were heard and my eyes were thoroughly tested. Thank you all!
The receptionist was friendly, and the staff was knowledgeable and able to answer all of my questions. I arrived 15 minutes early as they requested to fill out my first time paper work. However, they called me in 30 minutes after my scheduled appointment time, and i did not actually see Dr. Wen for 1 hour and a half after my scheduled appointment time. If i had not been happy with the exam when i was finally able to see the doctor, I would not return The wait time was impractical and unacceptable for anyone who has an office job they have to sneak away from and return to.
Kind and courteous. Answered all my questions. Would definitely see her again.
Actually my mother see Dr. Joseph Benevento on Sept. 5, 2014 Friday. He reviewed and examined my mother's both eyes, He is very professional and give me advice and the plan regarding my mother eyes issues. I will highly recommended to the people to use this facility for their eyes check up every year. Thanks the NY Eye and Ear Infirmary in Brooklyn all staffs.
Not great. I waited over an hour and half. No one in the whole office had the common courtesy to say "sorry about the wait". Dr. Wen was ok. Seemed a bit distracted, perhaps related to being an hour and a half behind schedule.
The front desk help and assistants were all very friendly and thorough. Dr. Wen was extremely personable and knowledgeable. She communicated clearly and made my visit as painless as possible. Highly recommend.
Angie was fast efficient and very professional but more importantly she identified that I had a rare type of eye cancer. She suggested a surgeon and it has since been removed. I was going in for a regular eye exam and she saved me. Hard not to give her a stellar recommendation.
Very nice and takes her time answering your questions.
She was very busy but extremely good. She helped me with a difficult diagnosis and was a true professional.
She was very professional, helpful and knowledgeable. My only complaint is that she didn't even show up to the office until 30 minutes after my appointment!
Apt itself was longer then expected.
She was great -- really easy going and made me feel comfortable.
I would recommend Dr. Wen to my family and closest friends without hesitation. She is a true professional, and maintains a calm and comforting demeanor. The office is very clean, and the staff is attentive and courteous.
The office is new and immaculate. Dr Wen was attentive and responsive to my questions. She was thorough in her examination of my daughter, more so than the doctor she used to see. Office staff seems efficient, even relayed a phone message from my husband because I didn't have my cellphone. All in all a pleasant visit. This was only our first visit but I'd probably recommend this office/doctor.
Professional. Facility clean and nice.
