I was disappointed with the overall experience at the office. I was seen by an optometry technician for 90% of the exam which 1) I wasn’t told who she was or her credentials or even her name 2) no one askedme if that was ok to have my exam done mostly by the tech vs. the doctor. I honestly specifically booked the appointment with this doctor and then barely saw her. I also felt like I was on a conveyor belt. Go to this area, go back to waiting room, go back to area, then go to this exam room, then go back to first area, then go to back to exam room, then go to another exam room for the doctor. Overall, poor set up and experience.

Liked Dr Nagel more than any other opthalmologist ive found in NYC. I felt like she listened to my eye history and helped me find a solution tjat would work for me. The office was out of a lot of suppliesand some of the technicians were complaining that they couldnt find a number of different items for people's appts. Not sure if this was a one off issue or a consistent thing.

The overall check time was around 90 minutes, so quite long. The healthcare providers (Dr. Nagel and nurse) were very friendly and helpful. However, the admin tried to incorrectly charge me for a refraction (which I hadn't asked for), then whenI pointed this out, I was told I couldn't have the prescription the doctor mentioned if I didn't pay for it. Little frustrating. Also quite a lot of forms to complete that duplicated information i had already given on zocdoc.

The staff at the front desk were all friendly & the technician who performed several eye tests was sweet and accommodating. Dr, Nagel was very welcoming and kind. She performed a thorough eye exam and spoke with me about my healthand the health of my eyes (thankfully, all good)! I would definitely recommend Dr. Nagel and plan on returning in the future for a routine exam.

Excellent throughout. The three staff people were excellent. Dr. Nagel was excellent. The office was having a difficult morning because of subway delays that had prevented staff from getting an early start. However, everyone maintained a professional and courteous approach despite the challenge. I was impressed.

The only complaint I have is that I had to wait FOREVER to get seen. I was in the room for an hour before Dr. Nagel could see me. When she did finally come into the room to see me, shediagnosed my eye problem very quickly. She definitely knows what she's doing but the wait and the attitude of the front desk left me a little frustrated.

Be prepared to pay a hundred bucks for a contact lenses prescription. That was a surprise for me. But the doctor was still good and gave me the prescription for free, even though I told her that I won't take it cuz I'm not ready to pay a hundred.

Most high recommendations to Dr. Nagel and her superb staff for the following reasons: .They are on-time. To the minute. .The staff are old-school total pros--as pleasant as they are competent. .Dr. Nagel has given me more information abouteye care and more base-line monitoring for glaucoma and melanoma than any eye doctor I've ever seen. .The office is clean and bright and all business.

The admin here sucks. They are rude on the phone. They don't smile at you. They say "no copay for you" and then send you a bill. If you call to double check they pretend like they don't care to checkand want to know how you can pay. Now Dr Nagel? She is AMAZING! She is so super positive, confident and sweet. She makes you feel completely at ease. She's caring and attentive. She listens and answers every question you have and looks at you like you are an intelligent person too. And no question is stupid. She talks to you throughout the exam. She always looks professional and presentable. I love her. Wish they would fire their admin staff and get people more competent. Oh, and the office is peaceful, clean and well stocked! Love

I had lengthy time initially with an assistant (technician?) doing extensive testing which seemed very thorough. Time with Dr Nagel was very brief -- just a few minutes -- and she spent much more time transcribing data from the preceding testing.She seemed very pressed for time, not the case in my view a year ago.
