Dr. Moskowitz was wonderful! I highly recommend him and will definitely be back
Dr Moskowitz was very professional and courteous, answered all of my questions. Would highly recommend. Front desk assistant was quick with the paperwork and very sweet.
The office was professional and pleasant. I was seen by an assistant initially who performed an examination and dilated my eyes after which I was seen by the doctor exactly when I was told he would see me. He was efficient and personable and reasonable in his recommendations. The office handled the business of my visit efficiently and pleasantly.
Dr. Moskowitz was very thorough in his explanation of retractive surgery and what he thought might be best for my eyes. He seems like he would be a viable option for the procedure that I wish to get. Other aspects of his office were fine and I appreciate that he makes it a priority to personally call back patients and answer inquiries.
What a great physician! He's nice, personable, and informative.I did not feel rushed and he answered all of my questions. Front staff is also great! Definitely would recommend.
I saw Dr.Moskowitz for the first time, and he was excellent. He did a very extensive exam of my eyes. I have seen other opthamologists but never received such an in-depth exam as I did with Dr. Moskowitz. He was very easy to converse with. I found a new opthamologists and feel very confident he will take very good care of my eyes. I highly recommend him.
Professional, thorough, overall a good experience. I will return to this practice.
He was very nice and took his time. The staff was also pleasant.
The fact that he was a McGill University graduate gave me even more confidence about seeing him. He is a great listener, inquires and asks the right questions to eliminate every single possibility. What I loved about him the most was the fact that he took accompanied me and nurse while the nurse was taking pictures of my eye and he stayed there to explain and educate me about my eyes. He was smart, confident, friendly, and very approachable. His staff were also super friendly, easy going and funny. :)
Efficient office staff, excellent support staff, pleasant office environment all serve to compliment a skilled professional who has guided me to the point of needing cataract surgery and has recommended an excellent surgeon.
Very friendly and personable. I trusted him completely.
This was my first visit with Dr. Moskowitz, and I must say that I was very impressed with the courtesy, efficiency and professionalism of the doctor and the office staff. The office itself is spacious, bright, and comfortable. Dr. Moskowitz more than surpassed my expectations. He took his time in examining my eyes, explained his procedures and answered all my questions. I can highly recommend him without any reservation!
Dr. Moskowitz is a concerned and knowledgeable doctor. He is personable but serious as he should be given the importance of the eyes. He did diagnose a problem and put me on a treatment. He monitors the progress closely. I trust him fully. The office is nice and pretty efficient. His colleagues are also highly competent.
Another perfect visit.
Professional and concerned. He takes the time to explain what is happening and why. He even takes the time to write out what he thinks is wrong with you. He will become my ophthalmologist for sure.
I was very impressed with Dr. Moskowitz- he was very professional and knowledgeable.
It was my first time visiting Dr. Craig Moskowitz and I wouldn't have asked for a better first time experience. Dr. Craig discussed in detail my condition and explained very clearly the diagnosis and the treatment plan.
Doctor is professional and knowledgeable about his field of work
He was great! Not only was he amazing with me, I watched him treat everyone with calm good humor, patience, and respect.
Dr. Moskowitz was, at the same time, professional and friendly. He did a very thorough examination of my eyes and explained the results. He had his assistant take a baseline photograph of an area which showed something that he said was not a concern but might be something that I would worry about if I did not have a visual image of it.
i went in panicked that i had a detached retina and he did a thorough exam and it was less terrible than I thought. whew!
Great, I'll go to him again for sure.
I had a great experience at the office. Friendly and competent staff, and Dr. Moskowitz is an excellent eye doctor. He was also very engaging and went out of his way to explain everything in detail. I highly recommend him!
He was excellent, answered all questions I had and gave me a thorough treatment to follow until my follow up visit.
Dr.Moskowitz was extremely intelligent and made me feel very comfortable with his diagnosis. After 5 minutes of chatting I knew I would move forward with lasik eye correction with Him as my surgeon. The office staff was friendly and accommodating, and the office space was not just conveniently located, but welcoming and as clean as could be! I will continue to see Dr.Moskowitz for all of my eye exams and will be recommending him to anyone and everyone I know!

really nice, professional, etc.
I would definitely recommend very easy going personality very thorough exam
Dr. Moskowitz is not only personable, but has a deep knowledge of his medical discipline. Thoroughly explains the exam and his observations in easy concepts and terms that any one can understand. Overall a true gentleman with high degree of professionalism.
Dr. Moskowitz and his staff were extremely welcoming, ready to answer my questions, and overall, dedicated professionals making my first visit with them a great experience.
Very professional, expedient, and friendly. Great experience!
He seems like a good doctor, and maybe he hadn't had enough coffee before my morning appointment, but he didn't seem like he was particularly interested in me or my questions. I felt more like a car being inspected by a mechanic than a human patient. That said, he did do a very thorough job of inspecting the insides of my eyeballs.
The office is pleasant and professional while sometimes quite busy and the support staff especially the medical assistants are pleasant, careful and knowledgeable. Dr. Moskowitz is clearly highly trained, thorough and a pleasant person.
He was friendly but I had to wait 35minutes so I obviously was not happy about this experience.
The front desk is amazing, and the doctor is able to treat my symptoms effectively, however, I'm not sure if the doctor is the most professional one out there.
This is my follow up visit with Dr. Moskowitz who has superb diagnostic skill couples with excellent recommendation in treatment. He has been my eye doctor for many years and I trust him. He treats his patients with great care and shows genuine interest in his patients' well being. If you want and need a great ophthalmologist, Dr. Moskowitz is definitely the one!
Exceptional, unequivocally the best. If you need an excellent Eye Doctor, he is the one.
Excellent bedside manner and helpful advice
It was very professional and thorough. Thanks
Excellent, very professional
I was dreading it but it was great. Thanks Dr. Moskowitz! MM
This is my second time seeing him. He's a great doctor who really makes you feel at ease. You will wait long- but I would rather wait long for a doctor who takes his time with his patients rather than a doctor who's pushing people in and out.
Dr. Moskowitz was very thorough and took his time with me. I felt that the issue I was having was well diagnosed and explained. When I returned for a follow up visit 2 months later, I had made a lot of progress thanks to the treatment plan he recommended.
I was very pleased with my first visit to Dr. Moskowitz for a complete eye exam. All my questions were answered; options for treatment were given for a couple of minor issues; and, I never felt rushed, although this is an active office. Everyone was professional, friendly, and calm.
Professional and courteous. Entirely satisfied.
Skilled and friendly. Great experience!
Very knowledgeable and helpful doctor. Great recommendations on next steps. Office staff was courteous. Will definitely return in the future.
Great physician. Immaculate office!!! Must recommend!
I thought it was great. It is the upper east side so be prepared for an older population. Staff was extremely friendly and the doctor was very thorough.
Very professional, very thorough and very attentive. I went in for a regular eye exam and will definitely be going back.
Very good clinician
He was very informative and walked me through every step of my check up. It was quick and painless.
All went smoothly. Staff seemed highly competent and professional.
Very professional.. Answered all my questions with patience. Was able to see me on very short notice.
Despite the inefficient front desk, the doctor himself is excellent.
Dr Moskowitz was very helpful and friendly. He explained all of the processes associated with my visit.
Dr. Moskowitz was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was able to explain in detail the issues I was having with my eye, as well as provided a referral for an eye surgeon. I was seen pretty quickly and the train station isn't that far away.
The wait was a little long, but that's bound to happen on a Monday morning. Once we got going, everything was smooth and it went great. I will definitely be going back.
Dr. Moskowitz was very thorough and attentive. We decided to do a full check-up and he made sure he went over everything with you before leaving the poffice. His staff is also very attentive and professional. No complaints. I have a follow-up appt with him in 6 months. He's not very good with social media though. Lol. I had to show him how to put an appointment into his iphone and invite "attendees" so I can add the appt to my phone. :)
While the wait was longer than expected, the new patient paperwork was quick to fill out and the doctor was great!
Dr. Moskowitz is an excellent physician. It is often hard to find a doctor that will have a candid discussion. Our conversation was great and he explained every step of what he was doing and why. I will go back.
He was very professional. He explained everything he did and he listen to and responded to my questions.
Dr. Craig Moskowitz is very professional and informative. He took his time to answer my questions and was very thorough in his assessment. I will continue to see him for any eye problem I may have.
great doc but long wait in the morning
He is a great doctor. Highly recommended
It was great, he is so professional, caring, and efficient.
Doctor was extremely professional, personable and knowledgeable.
The Doctor was skilled, pleasant and had a great bedside manner--calling me by my name many times. It was my first visit, but I felt very much 'at home'. The exam was completed in good time--I was in and out in good time. The office was well located, comfortable and clean. The staff was pleasant and efficient. I plan on keeping this doctor. Thanks zocdoc, you always help me find a winner!
Good bedside manner and good approach to addressing eye issues. However, the office was overflowing with people, the wait time was extremely long, and the woman at the front desk was very rude.
Dr. Moskowitz was very knowledgeable and showed a genuine interest in my well-being. I would highly recommend his services. There was, however, one receptionist who was unfriendly, impolite and rude. I won't let her attitude prevent me from coming back though, as Dr. Moskowitz did a great job.
Dr. Moscowitz was professional and courteous. I felt confidence in his diagnosis. The office staff was very professional, friendly and made attempts to obtain information from other providers that this writer may be referred. It was a positive experience.
He is a nice guy, but he is not organized. He didn't give me any printed documents and his diagnosis is not written anywhere.
Dr. Moskowitz was friendly and clearly knowledgeable. He explained things clearly. His technical staff was extremely pleasant.
My visit was great.
Great Dr! Extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful! I would highly recommend to anyone needing his services.
Dr. Moskowitz is professional and kind. He left no stones unturned to find and test the root of my vision issues. I am most confident in him as my eye physician.
very professional individual.
He and his assistant were very professional and friendly
Dr. Moskowitz seems very knowledgeable and I felt very confident about his methods and medical advice. This was my first visit but I will return for regular check-ups as he advised.
efficient office, dr. and staff very nice
An excellent office, a very competent staff, and a doctor who knows his stuff and really seems to care. I wish I had found him four years ago when we moved here to New York City.
He is very professional and friendly.
This doctor seems to be so plain with no feelings. I would not recommend him to anyone!!
Great, Professional and quick.
If you want the best of the best for your eyes, go to Dr. Craig Moskowitz. Today was my first visit with this doctor and will definitely not be my last. Going forward, Dr. Craig Miskowitz will be the one I trust for my eye health.
The doctor was very professional, knowledgable, and thorough. I was a little put off by the waiver forms for procedures that are not covered by insurance. It wasn't clear if these procedures would be necessary or applicable to me, but I was offered forms to sign without any explanation. That was my only issue with the office. Otherwise it was a good experience.
Knowledgeable and very nice. I'll go back next year.
Dr. Moskowitz was really helpful in alleviating my immediate concerns. He also administered a physically and emotionally painless exam. He is a great hidden gem Ophthalmologist in gramercy!
My visit was great Thank you
this doc is very thorough.
I went in for a general eye exam. Dr. Moskowitz was very thorough in his examination and explaining to me the results. He is personable too. Highly recommend!
Dr. Moskowitz was great! I am really nervous about my eyes & told him as such. He had a really calming demeanor & helped me feel comfortable. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone seeking an ophthalmologist!
He was personable and answered all my questions. The office was clean and staff was friendly!
disappointed that my co-pay was more than originally planned but the doctor is wonderful!
He was really nice, informative, and patient. I've been using zocdoc to find different doctors covered by my insurance and have been pleasantly surprised. All of the healthcare workers were friendly and more importantly clean!
I thought he was very professional and thorough in his exam.
A very professional and friendly office.
Dr. Moskowitz is professional, friendly and very knowledgable. Highly recommended!
I really doubt if other reviews were written by actual patients. I strongly think they must be from his friends or his staff. I can't imagine other reviewers and I are talking about the same person. He had no social smile whatsoever, didn't explain what he was doing, or what he was going to do next to me, I almost felt patronized. I'm an ethnic person and a gay male, by the way and I'm thinking his attitude might be related to this fact. He was basically rude in his general attitude. d I can't help but think it's because I openly said that I'm a gay male. or maybe that's just the way he is. Whichever it is he is not a warm person let alone a good doctor. He didn't even know that Truvada is widely being used as a "prep" program which I'm on now. And he also asked me what Wellbutrin was for. Doesn't anybody, even layperson know what it is for? I totally lost confidence in him from then on.
Dr. Moskowitz was competent and professional. He was able to assess my dry eyes and make the necessary recommendations. I needed new glasses an contacts and he didn't push me to buy them in-house. The office and its staff are lovely. Manuel, who did the preliminary exam (I think he's a tech) was kind and knowledgeable. I'm so happy to have finally found a great eye doctor on the UES!
Highly recommend-very nice guy - thorough, smart, makes you feel comfortable right way. He was able to see me the same day I booked the appt. You can't get any better than that! If you are looking for an eye doctor look no further. I chose him based on his location and the rave reviews on ZocDoc.They are all true.
Dr. Moskovitz was absolutely lovely. Thorough, patient, and extremely helpful. We have definitely found our new eye doctor!
No wait time, great responsiveness, excellent doctor-patient manners.
Very personable, and knowledgeable. I'm squeamish about my eyes, and he made me feel comfortable and eliminated my anxiety.
Dr. Moskowitz is honest and thorough. He addressed my questions and concerns. My only complaint...the clinic opened 15 minutes after my appointment time which made me feel nervous about my first visit.
Good, cute doctor. I felt my visit was very thorough and the diagnosis and advice was appropriate and genuine. Only concern: I felt the money that was charged was arbitrary and made several efforts to obtain my receipt so I could forward it to my insurance, speaking both to 2 secretaries and leaving message for the doctor without response. Thoroughly frustrating.
Very professional and friendly. Clean waiting area and exam. rooms.
Best experience I have had at any doctor. Craig and Manuel were awesome - took their time and paid close attention to my case and really tried to make sure they had the right plan in place for me. Highly recommended!
Was very clear in his explanations. Has a good sense of humor.
I liked Dr. Craig Moskowitz. He was very personable, timely and was thorough in his examination. He did not rush through the appointment which I appreciate. His staff was also very nice.
Dr. Moskowitz is amazing. His office staff is very cordial and accommodating. I was late for my appointment but still I was seen without any delays. Dr. Maskowitz’s fund of knowledge is superb and he does a very thorough clinical exam. He gave me undivided attention and answered all my questions in detail. He was very professional throughout the encounter. I would highly recommend him to my friends and colleagues. Also, he specializes in LASAK procedures and has a great skilful hand. I would definitely go back to him for follow up. He had some samples so he gave me the medicine. He also avoids unnecessary testing which is a great quality. In Short, should you have an eye issue, he in my opinion, would be an ideal doctor to consult!
First time visit. Very smooth and efficient... Mr. Chen was a very friendly technician, and Dr. Moskowitz was personable and thorough. I would visit this doctor again.
Same day apt. with prompt response and excellent exam.
Dr. Moskowitz was great- he took time to hear my concern and eased my mind. He was thorough and attentive while maintaining excellent bedside manner.
Very informative and honest
Professional, friendly and excellent service.Explained everything clearly and answered all my questions. Didn't have to wait at all. Would definitely go back.
He was fantastic, explained everything in a very easy to understand way.. If I was able to give him 10 stars, I absolutely would. Highly recommended.
Very professional, explained everything he was doing
Dr. Moskowitz was great. He solved my eye problem. Today was my follow up and my eye is much better. He has great bedside manners. His receptionist is friendly and accommodating. Great Doctor, great service, will definitely go back. One Tip: bring cash or check book to pay for co-payment or services.
Dr. Craig Moskowitz is an excellent and very unique ophthalmologist. He is extremely thorough and very approachable. He conveys confidence and he calms his patients. I am lucky to be one of his patient.
Dr. Moskowitz was extremely professional and thorough in his examination. Quite a perfectionist. He was also very personable, creating a comfortable atmosphere. I didn't wait more than 5 minutes to be seen, and I was back at work on time. It might have been the most pleasurable patient/doctor experience I've ever had. More importantly... I can see better.
No wait, very thorough exam, nice guy...
I'd definitely recommend him to others. He took his time examining my eyes and explaining my results to me. Never did I feel rushed.
Dr. Craig is an excellent professional and nice a person too.
Awesome doctor... my first office visit with him and was very pleased.
Appointment was right on time and he was very helpful.
Great doctor, great receptionist. Was seen right away, and he's great. Definitely recommend!
