Verified Patient Reviews
Wow, this was awful. REALLY poor facilities. More than an hour wait. Files were messy behind reception were messy, exam room was messy, not clean. Doctor was not super helpful and almost combative when I mentioned why I would need a stronger prescription. Also cash or check only??????? This was insane. It felt like walking into a bodega and asking for a contact lens exam. Ran out of inventory for contact samples. Recommended ordering the contacts online instead of via the office. This was crazy. I wouldn't recommend anyone go here and have no idea how this place got so many stars. Scary stuff.
long wait time
Short wait, very thorough and professional. Answered all my questions.
Thought he seemed okay, though we'll see if the treatment solves the issue. I had some confusion with his office staff and thought they could have done a better job of explaining what they were doing and what they needed from me.
Excellent! Helped me treat my eye infection effectively
I had an eye infection and made an appointment the same day. He was quick and thorough. He even gave me an eye drop right on the spot and a sample to take home. I would definitely go back.
He was thorough and kind.
Pleasant and professional staff. Exceptional service.
Fantastic visit. Ver professional, very calm and knowledgable. Dealt with my ongoing chalizon
Was able to see me with short notice, accurately diagnosed my issue and accelerated the treatment. Was also available immediately after for a follow up call re the procedure.
Fantastic and thorough and very friendly.
Dr. Curreri is wonderful. Very patient, thorough, knowledgeable and personable.
Awesome eye doctor - extremely knowledgable and concise in his approach, I can't say enough good things about the doctor..!!!
Office space is comparatively smaller and of old style. Interior quality is poor as well. There was a wait time of more than 30 minutes. Upon asking representative I was told that it was much better on that day because sometimes they used to have 2 hours of wait time. I don't understand why is Doctor's office so OK with 30+ mins wait time in such technologically advanced country and city. Considering that I booked my appointment through ZocDoc. Was expecting much more organized. Though doctor and staff are good at what they are doing.
Dr. Curreri was very nice and took the time to explain everything and answer all of my questions.
Dr. Curreri was incredibly nice and seemed very knowledgable. My only concern is that the office is a mess. There's clutter everywhere: there are boxes and stacks of papers and files haphazardly strewn and stacked. Also, the office smells very musty. I'm not sure if I would go back.
Awesome bedside manner - I highly recommend him..!!! Anthony
Excellent experience. No wait time, fast diagnosis, very friendly doctor.
Doctor is very friendly and the staff are so nice! Highly recommend him!
Dr. Curreri is an outstanding ophthalmologist with a great bedside manner who really cares about helping his patients! I saw him because I felt like I had something in my eye, and he performed a very gentle exam and figured out what was wrong then gave me some drops that quickly resolved my symptoms. I would definitely go back to him again! His office staff were also very nice.
Dr. Curreri was excellent! He was kind, patient and understanding. He listened to my concerns and did a great job in reassuring me everything was ok. His office staff is friendly and the wait was not long.
I am so happy with his service and care:)
the office was very busy. No one greeted me or introduced themselves even after taking my insurance cards and doing preliminary exams. The doctor barely said hello. Everything was fine but very impersonal.
Always to the point with little nonsense. A true professional!
Like always, Excellent
It was for a follow up visit and went well, however, the wait time was too long since I did make an appointment.
I don't like my eyes being touched, but he made me feel comfortable the whole time.
Very smart, and tool extra steps to help with my eye problem. Office staff is nice.
He was wonderful! Great bedside manner and a pleasure to speak with. Very professional. I would refer him to friends and will be going back
The staff is a little ditzy but the doctor was excellent and in the end that is what matters. I went with a really bad eye infection and he prescribed 2 kinds of eye drops and told me what to watch for and when I need to come back.
Dr. Curreri knows it all. He is very professional and intelligent. Answered all my questions and was quick to diagnose me. Made me feel so comforted the whole time. A real expert and friendly doctor.
I never give reviews but I was thoroughly impressed with Dr. Curreri. I was a first time patient and wasn't sure what to expect. I came in with some eye problems and right away he saw me and quickly diagnosed my symptoms. I was prescribed eye drops and already within the same day the redness in my eye has gone alway. Highly recommended!!!!!
Dr. Curreri is very professional, polite and patient! The wait was a little long, as one might expect, but actually seeing the doctor took 10 minutes and he was very helpful. Highly recommend.
great experience very patient could not have been better
I really like Dr. Curreri. He's very personable and is great about answering questions and offering suggestions. I also feel like he takes the right amount of time with appointments- not too short, not too long. He seems like a genuinely nice guy with interesting, intelligent things to say and I always leave his office feeling really positive. While I'm glad my eyes don't require more doctor's visits, I'm sorry I only get to see him once a year!
Great doctor. Highly recommended! Office a bit small. The staff is nice.
Dr. Curreri was great. He was very easily able to tell me what was wrong with my eye and clearly explained what was happening and why, and how to treat it.
He is very friendly. My appointment was for 4pm but I arrived early and I was seen really fast. But the time I was done his waiting room was packed. Glad i arrived early. I got my prescription for glasses and contacts. My mother sees him and my sister.
Great! Fast and accommodating
My visit was great. I was late for my appointment but they were very accommodating. The doctor was great.... As was the staff... The one thing was that they only accept cash or checks....
The doctor was excellent, very professional approach and recommendations. Took time to explain. Got my exam done very quickly, no unnecessary fuss or long waiting. The whole thing was simple, efficient and to the point. The staff was polite and helpful. The only thing I would recommend is to refurbish the place a little and change the dirty furniture - makes horrible impression at first sight..
Dr. Curreri is a fantastic opthomologist! He saw me on time, extremely pleasant and helped me solve my eye-issues. He even tole me a great story about the origins of Jazz in the US while conducting the examination. Truly great experience.
He is a very good doctor. I've been seeing him for years.
Dr. Curreri was great. He was very knowledgable and familiar with my condition. I liked that he went a more holistic route of treatment instead of just prescribing me eye drops that I would have to use everyday.
A little bit of wait to be seen but I was in and out in 40 minutes. Dr. Curreri was competent, professional, and personable. I would definitely continue seeing him for all my eye care needs and recommend him to others.
Really nice and attentive. Highly recommend him!
The wait was ridiculous, was there a total of 2 hours and spent about 10 minutes with the doctor.
Dr. Curreri is a really nice guy. He seems to be a good doctor, too, though not as thorough as another Eye Doctor who I've seen since him. Overall if you want attentive service and to feel like you're in the hands of a qualified professional, I'd definitely recommend Dr. Curreri.
Dr. Curreri cured my recurring conjunctivitis.
Dr. Curreri always makes it a comfortable visit. Never feel rushed. He's the best of my "medical team" to be quite honest.
I love Dr Currerri. He's the sweetest smartest ophthalmologist I know. I have my whole family seeing him
Dr Cuerreri was great. The office is pretty dingy and dirty feeling though...
Great doc. Highly recommended!
Dr. Curreri is great! No nonsense, straight to the point and highly knowledgable. He's also got years of experience as a top-level pro boxing ring doctor. No wait time at all.
Dr. Curreri deserves all of the excellent feedback he's gotten. He is very nice and has a calm, pleasant demeanor.
He is one of the best American ophthalmologists ever!!! Highly recommend him!
Very straightforward and direct while putting you at ease with his relaxed, friendly demeanor. A fantastic docot, whose patients were even bragging about him in the waiting room.
One thing: They do not take credit card. I almost always use my FSA card to pay my co-pay, so this was very odd to me.
I booked the earliest appointment that was available (9am) as I still had to go to work. By 9:10 my paperwork was filled out and the preliminary work was already being done. I do understand that Dr. Curreri is the only doctor in the office and already had a full waiting room by the time I was first called in, but it was slightly weird that the assistant was helping with preliminary checks on my eyes. I guess I am just used to my old doctor doing the entire check-up. But, Dr. Curreri was very nice and courteous and did what I thought was a very thorough check on my eyes.
Dr. Curreri is excellent - I had such a good experience with him. He answered all of my questions - and was very knowledgeable. I never felt rushed during my visit - which is pretty rare these days. If you're looking for a great Ophthalmologist, without a long waiting room wait - he's your doctor!
I would recommend him highly. He is the kind of doctor that you want in your corner. Amazing bedside manner. Unfortunately there are few and far between.
I liked him a lot. I had heard that he's a good doctor, but there was a long waiting time. Maybe the day was unusually busy. Would recommend him.
Very good experience
Dr. Curreri is awesome!
Excellent Dr and staff . Highly recommend.
Exactly what I was looking for. Quickly addressed all my needs while also being very conversational
Dr Curreri, is extremely knowledgeable in is practice. He has a kind bedside manner and is very thorough in his evaluation, Just love him.
I was very pleased by the care I received from Dr. Curreri and his wonderful staff. I highly recommend him.
I had a great experience the first visit I had, so I made an appointment for my husband and two sons.
He was so amazing highly recommended!!
Very knowledgeable, was able to ask questions with ease. Appreciate his advice and direction with my diagnosis, and will continue treatment with him.
I appreciated that he took the time to talk with me about all the options for my poor vision and what to expect in the future.
I've been seeing Dr Curreri for years. He is thorough, efficient, and on time. His office staff is friendly, smart, and always helpful. The office equipment is very up-to-date. I recommend him highly.
He was quick and helpful. I would definitely go back to him in the future.
Punctual, efficient, thorough and warm.
I'll admit that I was a tiny bit annoyed that I wasn't seen right at 9am since I had booked the first appointment of the day. However, all that disappeared when I went into Dr. Curreri's office. He is efficient yet still so nice and easy to talk to. Once the appointment got going, it was quick and simple. See you in a year, Dr. Curreri!
Highly professional and knowledgeable doctor; friendly staff.
I like Dr. Curreri's down to earth manner. He is quick, confident, and I like that he offered a natural solution as well as prescription medicine.
I was very happy with Dr. Curreri. His manor and expertise was excellent.
Professional, detailed, knowledgeable and conveyed information in a comprehensive manner.
worked out fine. with such a long wait it would be nice to have wifi access. poor cell coverage on att in the waiting room.
Dr. Curreri was extremely professional and helpful especially when I told him I didn't have insurance. He made sure to give me samples of the medications I needed. I highly recommend him!
Although the office staff has a lot of hi-tech computers to photograph and test the eyes, the fact is the doctor himself spent very little time actually looking at my eyes. I'm not confident in relying so heavily on computers to do the work of an MD.
The staff at Dr. Curreri's office is friendly and helpful. The doctor and the staff explain every part of the visit so the patient does not feel anxiety about what is happening. Dr. Curreri is fantastic. He is very soft-spoken and makes the patients feel comfortable.
Simple. Went in for an eye infection and walked out after a 10 minute consult.
Great visit would recommend to others. Quick diagnosis
The visits were great; the doctor checked me out on all the machines they have there etc. I had practically no wait and the appointment setting process was very simple and seamless. The only thing that left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth was that the doctor charged separately for the use of each of those machines/procedures, which resulted in more than I think I would have paid if the visit was - like I expected - charged as just the visit.
Great service. Kept me informed and at ease.
Very informative. He was the third person I went to in regards to the same problem I was having and he was the only one who able to address my problem and well inform me on how I can go about it. Much appreciated..
Great doc! Quick and very helpful!
Doctor Curreri was great. I was in and out of the office in 20 minutes! The staff in the office are very friendly as well. I would highly recommend Doctor Curreri to anyone in NYC seeking eye care. It's worth the commute if you live in a different Borough!
Great guy best consultation I've ever had no long waiting!
I've had several visits Dr. Curreri as he helped me through a persistent issue. Every visit he took the time to talk to me and explain any concerns that I had. I'd go back to him for any future issues without hesitation.
A great doctor - super nice and very knowledgable.
Very professional. Up-to-date equipment. Well run office.
Very knowledgable and efficient doctor. Easy to talk to as well.
The wait time was exactly 30 minutes which is ok for the lunch time hour, but it was cramped and crowded which makes me wonder about their scheduling. Everything else went very smoothly.
Was my first time seeing Dr. Curreri. He was highly recommended by my PCP and now I understand why. Excellent doctor and helped me a lot.
Really nice guy - I had never had an eye exam before and went for a general consultation. Was patient and answered all of my questions. Waited about 15mins
Very nice and good bed side manner
Extremely friendly and described all the tests in detail
I liked him as a doctor but was not a fan of his office at all. It is rundown and squishy. He was great and knew what he was talking about.
Doctor was thorough and paid attention to the details of my case. Clearly explained my options for treatment. Even had time to chat amiably for a couple of minutes about a shared interest. Very good experience.
Excellent service and very professional
A good experience.
He was super nice. He was fast and knew what he was doing.
My visit to Anthony was great. He was very nice and very helpful. He knew right away what was wrong with my eye, how to treat it and cared enough to send me along with some great medicine before I could get to the pharmacy. I will be going back to see him when I need an eye doctor for sure.
Nice doctor. Professional, quick, pleasant. Will definitely come back.
I have nothing negative to say about Dr. Curreri - he is great and was able to answer all of my questions, address my concerns, and make suggestions. Great energy too, very likable. I'm very likely to go back to him. His waiting room, however, could use some improvements. AND my biggest complaint is that the office does not accept credit cards (only cash and checks). I had to run out and get cash from an ATM to pay my copay.
I'm so satisfied with the service provided. Everything went great. I was actually 16 minutes late for my appointment, cause I got lost, and I even called my work telling them I would be late, but, amazingly, in 30 minutes I was done with my appointment. Everybody was very nice to me (the front desk, the girl who did the pre examination and the doctor. The doctor, as I saw in the reviews and that was the reason I chose him, was very personable and knowledgeable. He took his time and explained to me everything about my problem. I highly recommend him.
I went in for a somewhat serious, painful eye infection which he diagnosed in just a few minutes. The appointment may have been abrupt but the diagnosis and treatment were accurate and effective.
Since I saw some negative comments, I'll relate my experience. Despite a busy waiting room, I was done 45 minutes after my 11:15am appointment time. The assistant was very proficient and professional in doing the preparatory examinations. The doctor himself was very personable, organized, professional, and knowledgeable. One of my best medical experiences!
Came for an emergency visit for my 13-year old son. We were seen at the appointed time. Doctor was very attentive and professional. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Curreri saw me right away and treated me well. I left feeling reassured and grateful he was able to see me for a same-day appointment.
Not the immediately most friendly guy, but he's very nice and if you take the time to ask some questions- he's at the top of his game. I strongly disagree with the cash-only payment policy. WTF is that? Otherwise, very, very good.
He was fast and friendly.
Great experience. I had a 9 am appt, was seen before 9:30 and got a full explanation about my diagnosis. Highly recommend.
I needed new contacts prescription and the process is quite painless and speedy. The office is small but neat. I find the doctor professional and trustworthy
Great service just a shame about the waiting room being small and cramp.
I was definitely pleased with the way everything was handled, especially how speedy everything went! He's a very personable guy and I don't see myself going to anyone else. We talked about travel and made a few jokes. Cool guy.
Wonderful! I was seen quick and Dr. Curreri was very nice and so was his staff! =)
Terrible office experience. I showed up at 9.05 for a 9am appointment, and found over 12 people already waiting. That is more people than they had chairs, so people had to stand. I didn't leave the doctors office until 11.20, for a 9am appointment!! and I only spent 5 minutes with the doctor. He was terrific, I really appreciated his bedside manner. But I'll have nightmares about that cramped, small, depressing waiting room!
Dr. Curreri is great. He's friendly, attentive, and efficient. He listened to all my concerns, easily answered questions and gave suggestions, and made sure I felt satisfied with his advice before I left. I'm thrilled to have finally found a great eye doctor in NYC!
as always, THE BEST EYE DOCTOR in NEW YORK!!!
Very efficient, quick and helpful. I definitely would recommend.
Thank you. Everything went great.
Very professional. Thorough diagnosis. I highly recommend Dr. Curreri
He is a smart doctor and has a great bedside manner, something I don't see very often anymore!
I had a very positive experience at Dr. Curreri's office! He was very kind and efficient. I will definitely go back for my appointment next year.
It is really difficult to leave positive feedback for such a great doctor when your last impression was the ridiculously long wait. I didn't ask questions but so many people were waiting, yet no seemed to be called according to when they arrived. Really frustrating. My last visit was nearly 2 years prior. Dr. Curreri is wonderful but I had forgotten how long I had waited the first time around. Obviously the office has made no improvements if they have the same issue years later. I am not sure I will return when the time comes again.
He was very professional, knew the issue right away and was very thorough in his exam.
professional, accurate and modern test bench
Very professional. Office staff is excellent.
Thorough and thoughtful,he was great.
hands down...the best doctor ever...
the best doctor ever. god bless him...
five star doctor...very detailed...the receptionists are the best I have experience in a very long time.
A most pleasant experience....Dr. Curreri and office staff were professional, courteous and efficient.
Dr. Curreri is always so helpful and professional. He and his staff also works with my pharmacy to make sure any prescriptions are covered by my insurance!
Professional and knowledgeable. Overall, a very good experience.
His manner are great, he is attentive and a very professional doctor. I highly recommend him.
The waiting room is sometimes crowded, but if you're patient, Dr. Curreri and his staff will impress you. Bottom line for me is that I have spent years trying to find the perfect contact lens and prescription and was never totally satisfied. But with Doctor Curreri, within 2 visits he prescribed me perfectly. I have astigmatism in both eyes and two very different and high level prescriptions in each eye. I was confident all the way through from the machines they used to examine my eyes to the doctor's knowledge and guidance. Now I can finally see clearly and the lenses are so comfortable.
The doctor was very nice and even though there were many people in the waiting room, I did not feel rushed at all. I felt confident with his prescription and he listen to my concerns and addressed them. Even with a crowded waiting room, I never waited more than 5 mins. The only issue I had was they only take cash or check for co-pay, but they let me go to the ATM. Will know for next time!
Good doctor knows his profession. Deff recommend
Dr. Curreri was pleasant and very fast, but there was a moderate wait time and the waiting room is not the kind of place you want to hang out in (very small, very full, in need of some new chairs).
The staff and Dr. Curreri were very personable and efficient. The women at the front desk were quite nice and Dr. Curreri explained his opinion in a clear manner. I highly recommend this practice.
simply the BEST eye doctor!!!
Not bad, kinda felt a little rushed... overall im satisfied
Very knowledgeable and professional - was able to book an appt the same day and on a holiday no less!
I arrived 20 minutes early for a 9:00 appointment. At first I was dismayed to see that by 9:00 four other patients had arrived also with 9:00 appointments, but it was NO PROBLEM. At 9:00 the door opened and we were all seen by different specialty people, and the appointments went smoothly and quickly. I have never seen such and well-run, efficient, and totally modern office. Doctor Curreri was attentive, answered all my questions, and let me see the photos of my optic nerve. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and super efficient as well. What a great going-to-the-doctor experience.
It was great
I was very impressed with the up to the minute equipment in the office. Dr. Curreri took plenty of time to explain the condition of my eyes and the various options and recommendations for a possible procedure.
The doctor was great, but the office space was not so nice. The waiting room was cramped and seemed kind of dirty. Once I went back to the doctor, it was a bit nicer.
Great guy and very helpful
Dr. Curreri is very friendly and to the point (in a good way) - the office is cramped and the wait is long.
I was impressed will the up to date technology which took away all my anxiety from past visits to an opthomogist. The doctor was kind and respectful and made me feel comfortable by listening carefully to what i described as my problems. He was also knowledgeable and showed me a photo of my eyes and explained in detail what i was seeing. I was happy and relieved when I departed.
good guy, very personable. highly recommended
Very friendly and make the visit easy
It took a while- an hour and a half, only about 5 minutes of which I was with the Dr, and 5 mins of which I was with his assistant. However he was very informative, professional, personable and seemed competent. I'll definitely go back, but may be more strategic about scheduling.
I have been to 4 eye doctors in the past year, and finally with Dr. Curreri I have a diagnosis. The others were just guessing costing me wasted money on new eyeglass prescriptions. He listened to everthing I had to say and was very encouraging. I already recommended him to 2 people.
Dr. Curreri was down-to-earth, friendly, professional, and just seemed to be a genuinely nice guy who actually cares about his patients and helping them get what they need. He gave me a couple of different brands of contacts to try (and to last me through till I can get a new supply). I really only chose his office for its location, but I will definitely be going back.
Dr. Curreri's office was extremely efficient. There was not a ton of paperwork to fill out. He was timely and explained everything thoroughly. Excellent bedside manner and I am referring all of my friends to him! It is rare to find an superior ophthalmologist who actually takes insurance!
came in right at 9:00am for my appt, after filling out some new patient forms, I waited about 5 mins and was seen. Very Knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend to all!
Very good experience - performed various high-tech exams and took time to explain the results.
this doctors office is a disaster. leftover food in the exam room, old equipment, very unsanitary.
Dr. Curreri was quite personable. The wait time was a little longer than I had hoped (about 30 minutes) but if you bring a book there really isn't a problem. I would definitely go back.
It is always a pleasure seeing Dr Curreri. He is highly recommended by many doctors and they use him as their own ophthalmologist. He is very caring and very pleasant and most of all very knowledgeable of his specialty. I would recommend him without a doubt.
Very nice experience. Dr. Curreri was very friendly, and took time to review my past eye history and took time to discuss my options for glasses and contacts. The office isn't too exciting and was a bit crowded, office staff was a little young and not extremely attentive, but overall, it was a good experience and I'd recommend him.
Excellent experience with the doctor. Wasn't too impressed with the staff/secretaries that assisted him though. He was incredible though.
Dr. Curreri was really kind and immediately helpful.
Dr. Curreri has a compassionate demeanor, and is very knowledgeable and results-oriented. He took a very holistic approach. His office is no-frills, but it had all the necessary equipment and services needed to treat me. The only small negative was on the handling of my primary doctor's referral required by my HMO by the front-office. That had to be sent twice, and no one confirmed receipt.
Es muy buen Doctor, le interesa que uno sepa bien lo que tiene y que entienda. unas atenciones muy buena y son muy eficientes, el Dr. es super puntual.
Appointment booked the same day on ZocDoc for 2:15, I got called in at about 2:40. Doctor was very nice, did not make me feel rushed and took the time to answer all my questions.
I always have a pleasant experience at Dr Curreri's office...the staff is very warm and wonderful.
Dr. Curreri was exceptionally nice and understanding. Many thanks for his kindness!
Great doctor. Knowledgeable, friendly, willing to listen, and extremely generous with his time. The appointment never felt rushed or pressured.
Dr. Curreri was great. He was professional, efficient, and good at his job!
Fastest appointment ever. Was in and out in 15 minutes. Now let's hope what he prescribed works!
I went in because of a pretty strong eye infection. Dr. Curreri is laid back and has a great manner about him. And importantly, he knows his stuff. He took time to answer my questions and put me on a regimen that began to help my condition pretty much right away. I recommend him highly.
It as a good visit and I will probably see him again.
