Professionalism at the facility does not exist. I could over hear the doctor yelling at staff, as well as threatening patients and I to pay balances. The demeanor is degrading, uncomfortable and degrading. I would not recommend.

Had an as-expected first visit with Dr. Arthur! I ended up having a wait that was a little longer than I had hoped, but I think that was mainly due to getting my insurance all settled and it being my firstvisit. I was also the first patient of the day, so it was understandable that everyone was just getting into the groove of the day. After the wait, however, my exam and experience with both the front desk staff and Dr. Arthur was great--not only were they pleasant and laughed at my jokes, they also took the time to explain everything clearly and made sure I understood everything having to do with my prescription and billing. Plus, it's only a 10 minute walk from my place which is a huge bonus.

He didn’t ask my name or introduce himself upon entering the room. When I told him I occasionally extend the life of my monthly contacts to cut costs, he lectured me about being short-sighted. I wish he would’ve given me thechance to explain that I’m a graduate student trying to survive in one of the most expensive cities in the world without any financial help. He suggested I get vision insurance to which I responded my employer didn’t offer it. All in all, I was surprised and disappointed by his lack of bedside manner.

Really nice office! Waited 20-25 minutes to be seen (generally expected at an NYC office) and then saw the doctor. He’s cool and competent. Had a contact lens fitting and got a new prescription for my glasses in about an hour total. Reception staff were also friendly and helpful!

Very satisfied by the care I received from Dr. Arthur, but not so much the odd registration process. They have you fill out your forms on a laminated sheet with a dry-erase marker, so I had to go back and makecorrections to the information on my forms more than once because small handwriting with dry-erase markers is not easy to read.

I waited about half an hour then was told my insurance was accepted but not for the service I needed (eye allergies). All that could have been avoided.

The lady who helped me and the staff were all absolute angels! The actual doctor on the other hand found it okay to belittle and mistreat the woman at the front desk in front of me. There are actual ways tocommunicate with people without coming off so nasty. He needs better communication skills and needs to learn how to respect others. I can’t even imagine how he treats his staff when there aren’t clients around! Very disappointing.

The entire office staff were kindand helpful in working with me--from helping me to best utilize my insurance benefits to helping me pick out glasses. I highly recommend Perspective Family Eyecare.

The appointment went fine. The doctor seemed a bit aloof when I first entered the office, and may have been just very busy dealing with end of day type things. His staff was very helpful, and he was as well whenI asked him to explain how the eye exam works.

The administration could have let me know of important information regarding my insurance prior to coming in. This review is not about the actual service. It turns out that my insurance coverage check ups every two years and not annually. I wish I could have save myself a trip

They would not see me unless I gave them proof of both vision and medical insurance. Initially they tried to run my medical insurance for vision benefits, and when they could not find it, they asked me to write my SSNon a sticky note. When I explained to them that they were running my medical insurance as vision, they realized what the problem was. No one in the office introduced themselves to me, or explained anything to me. Most of the staff had a tendency to speak while not looking in your direction, so you cannot hear what they are saying. The person in the pre-testing room asked me a bunch of questions about my medical history, but did not tell me who they were or what their purpose was. During my visit, the doctor walked in, asked how I was and went straight to the computer (he also did not introduce himself). After my visit, the front desk staff nearly refused to let me leave unless I scheduled a follow up appointment. It took five minutes of me refusing for them to take no for an answer. When I got home, I realized a very large error in my eyeglasses prescription (luckily I am a physician and I knew that this was an error). When I called, they said they would email me a new prescription, and verbally told me what the correct prescription is. When they emailed me the new prescription, it was completely different from what they told me over the phone that the prescription would be. I am not sure if this prescription is correct, or what it will do to my vision. What I am sure of is that I will be finding a different optometrist to see in the future.

Be warned that if you want your prescription to order contacts you'll be required to book two appointments and go twice. The doctor was an hour late (the very nice receptionists told me they didn't know where he was). He wasextremely rude and treated me like I was stupid when I asked simple questions, such as why I should have my pupils dilated--I'm not an optometrist, so I don't think this is an unreasonable thing to ask, considering it would cost me time and money. He accused me of forgetting things he'd never told me, and was pushy and seemed annoyed that I was there (I was in his office for fewer than five minutes, it's not as if I was taking up a lot of his time). I will be finding another doctor.
