I’ve been going to Dr Fernandez for many years now. He’s always very attentive and thorough. His Newport Office is very convenient and near transportation, the Jersey City Light Rail and Path trains.

Had a contacts lens appointment which included the regular eye exam. Will be back next week for contact lens fitting. Getting information on procedures and why he was conducting it was like extracting teeth. Pushed a glaucoma test on me foran extra fee. Unclear on the type of contacts ordered for trial fitting. Honesty and clear information would have gone a long way. Felt like a customer going through the cogs of the testing machines.

The doctor was great but it was misleading that he was located in a jcpenny in the mall. It was a ridiculous wait and they had no receptionist, rather one optometrist who sauntered back and forth fulfilling both duties. Once Ifinally saw the doctor he was great, but after it took another 30 minutes to pay. My appointment was for 1:15, I left the "office" at 3. Really unfortunate because he was a good doctor.

A terrific experience and lens fitting. Dr. Fernandes took the time to understand my needs and I'm now wearing mutifocal lenses that are exceeding my expectations. I had a thorough refraction and slit lamp exam, professional through and through.

Dr. Fernandes was professional, pleasant and he took care of me efficiently. His staff was pleasant and professional as well. I will see him again for my annual eye exam. The only thing patients should know is that his office isinside JCPenny Optical at JCPenny store in the mall in Bay Plaza. Its a nice mall but if you don't want to go to the mall to go to the doctor, then this will be an issue for you.

Bruce is professional and considerate, most importantly, he made me feel confident tin his ability to perform a series of eye exams. Definitely would recommend for you to visit, just take note that his office is located at the side entrance of JC Penny at Newport Mall.

I didn't see Bruce however, I did see his wife and she was fantastic! It was my very first eye exam and she made me feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend them and I will be sure to get my yearly exam done there.
