Dr. Christine Law, OD

Optometrist

Professional statement

Dr. Christine Law received her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry from SUNY Binghamton and then went on to receive her doctorate of optometry at SUNY College of Optometry in 2002. She did her residency in Ocular Disease at the FDR VA Health System in Westchester, NY in 2003 and has been in practice ever since. In addition to specialized training in Ocular Disease, Dr. Law has experience working with contacts, including fitting specialty lenses and also pediatrics from age 5 and up. “I love optometry because of the relationships you are able to develop with people over time, and the opportunity to make a real impact in one’s quality of life. I believe that as optometrists we are here to provide comprehensive eye care which not only is important from a vision standpoint but also a health standpoint. As primary eyecare providers, we can detect diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure.” When not seeing patients, Dr. Law is a self-described “foodie.” She has also been involved in the OneSight Program, providing free eye exams and eyeglasses to patients in need. Dr. Law is a native New Yorker, and currently lives here in Kips Bay with her husband and three young children. Dr. Law is excited to be here to care for a community that is close to her heart.

The Dr was great but she needs better support. The technician seemed bored to be there, was curt and impatient. Made the initial screening and shopping portion a lot less enjoyable. I'm not sure I will go back.

The staff had me go through a couple of tests for my eye, and only later they told me that my insurance did not cover it. This is probably not the best way to spend my time. They could have toldme upfront and I would have opted out from the get-go. Also they use alcohol wipes on their equipment right before you put your face on it, instead of having the little tear-off paper sheets. The alcohol was still wet when they ask me to put my eye on it. Dr. Law had great bedside manner but I’m not sold on this office and the way they operate.

I love Dr. Law! Honestly (and annoyingly), I end up waiting 45 minutes to be seen and I don't truly understand how this always happens every year, but I love Dr. Law so much that I do not want to goanywhere else to be seen by anyone else. She is so personable, so caring and truly is a good doctor. She is so good about informing you about everything she is doing or what she is thinking. She is super communicative and gentle. She makes me feel at ease and comfortable. The wait time is ridiculous, and I wish her office would call us when she is running late because I feel there is no respect of my time, but Dr. Law makes up for it with her bedside manners, skill and experience.

Although the doctor was adequate, I did not feel comfortable with the people working in the office. The woman who works in the eye wear store is highly unprofessional. While waiting for the appointment, she openly criticized the previous patientwith the receptionist. I find such behavior unacceptable -- to do so in front of other patients. So that means that she would probably do the same with me should she feel has a reason to do that. Totally unprofessional. She should not be working in a doctor's office.

I've been seeing Dr Law for about a year now and highly recommend! The office is small and personal, all the staff are very kind and Dr Law is super knowledgeable and fun to be around. Only recommendation is to whichexams your insurance might not cover before they start so you can be fully informed before you pay!

Christine really takes the time to ensure high quality of care. The office may seem a bit cramp, but it has all the tools and equipment she needs in order to do a thorough examination of your eyes and vision. Oneof the things I like best about her is that she is very patient and was willing to humor any of my questions I had. The only reason I would not highly recommend her is because if too many people went to her, I would have trouble getting an appointment myself.
