Dr. Tisch was great. Very knowledgeable, nice, to the point and seemed to really have my best interest at heart when recommending contact brands/glasses etc. The office is not fancy, but for a quick eye check up, it is great. Thestaff was helpful and very transparent about any co-pays/contact lens charges. I'll definitely go back for my next check up!

I really appreciate honesty from any professional, something that Dr. Tisch exemplified. The team he works with are friendly and answer questions without any hint of frustration. Though I was there for a check up and only would be getting mylens changed, they were not pushy on buying new frames. Overall, great experience.

Excellent experience. He helped me get fitted for contacts and sent me home with a trial of daily’s that we’re perfect for my needs. Great bedside manner and just super helpful all throughout.

This doc was so rude and talked about all the patients out loud. He was very money-oriented instead of worrying about the patients. I would not recommend him.

The office was a little chaotic when I went. The person who checked me in/out didn’t seem to quite understand what was going on, but the other employees seemed more competent. It was difficult to get answers about my insurance benefitsand the price of various lenses from them. I ended up taking copies of the prescription and leaving to buy lenses elsewhere. My consult with Dr. Tisch felt a bit rushed, and he sorta just told me to get one specific type of contacts without going over any alternatives. He was also quite dismissive of my existing glasses and contacts, and I felt almost like he was judging me. Perhaps that’s just his manner. Otherwise, he was rather friendly. I’ll probably find a different eye doctor for my next exam.

I liked the office it is an optical with a small room for eye exams. The doctor was nice and if all you need is a quick eye exam you can go here and be in and out. Nice selection ofglasses, I love mine and my insurance covered a good part of them.

I had to wait about 45 mins to see optometrist. It was my first time getting a prescription, and wasn’t prepared for the up-sell on extras when getting the glasses I wanted. Now I know what to look out for.

I went in for a LASIK consultation. Dr. Tisch was a little brusque, but nothing I disliked - I can see how his dry humor and slight sarcasm would not be to everyone’s liking, but he was professional and thorough withme - I appreciated his comments and opinions, and fully intend to proceed. On the other hand, I was struck by how disorganized the support staff was. They were very friendly, but they seemed like they were struggling with patient intake and data entry. Even Dr. Tisch seemed annoyed when interacting with them, which was awkward. I even received a phone call the day after I had shown up for my appointment, with the voicemail saying I had “missed my appointment,” and would I like to reschedule. Perhaps it was just an out of the ordinary day, but it was my first impression as a new patient.

Dr.Tisch is very precise and no nonsense doctor who will break through habits of answering "looks fine" with providing actual descriptions of how things look "sharp/fuzzy etc". he spent extra time to make sure my new contacts were perfect forme with several appointments over three weeks and an order swap when we found better prescription that worked. Been coming to him since 2014 and am hoping he never leaves NYC
