Dr. Crane was very helpful and efficient.
Dr. Crane was fantastic! I am really grateful that I found her on ZocDoc! Staff was very friendly which is a bonus!
Dr. Crane is amazing. She is extremely thorough and takes the time to address all of your concerns. I highly recommend her!
It was my first time getting my eyes dilated and the staff was not very helpful or informative. I ended up googling details after to find out that the effects would last 4-8 hours. Luckily I had sunglasses as well since my eyes were very sensitive to light. I would have thought that after telling the staff this was my first time they would have provided more information other than sit down and wait. Regardless, Danielle is a great OD and overall positive experience.
Very professional and informative. Would go again.
Very professional and attentive office and staff. Every procedure is explained thoroughly, and all questions are answered with patience and clarity.

Very professional, clean, quick exam Diagnosis was legitimate
She's EXCELLENT!!! Highly recommended!!!!
Dr. Crane demonstrates excellent technical and diagnostic skills. I was impressed by the thoroughness of the basic exam, and by her insights regarding our medical history. She also seems to establish good rapport and open communication with patients of differing ages and needs. The 79th St. office is attractive and well-equipped, and the location is great. The support staff does try to "up-sell" additional products and services (nature of the business), but the pitches are gentle and easily rebuffed if you're not interested.
Everything about my appointment was great! Everyone was very nice and helpful and the appointment was quick.
The girls at the front were nice, and helpful with my insurance type and getting the correct glasses frame. Dr. Crane is young and very approachable, but may turn off older clients. Overall an easy, enjoyable experience
I really like Dr. Crane. She's very thorough and trustworthy.
Provider was clearly very knowledgeable and inspired trust.
I've been going to Danielle for about three years now, and I stayed with her even after I moved 45 min from the practice. She's that awesome!
Smart, skilled, pleasant, superior.
Dr. Crane was really helpful in answering questions about an inheritable disease. She also gave me good advice and guidelines on when to where my glasses and when I may not need them. She was professional, personable, and knowledgeable.

Dr. Crane was great! Very nice and professional doctor.
Wonderful! She was thorough, upfront, and sincere. Great visit. Definitely my new OD.
Staff was friendly but I didn't feel like I was taken that seriously. Had a few questions that were answered in a rushed, somewhat condescending or exasperated manner. With that said, I did feel like I received good actual care / examination.
Great overall experience.
She is a lovely optometrist who has a great sense of what I needed as a new patient, was prompt friendly and very clear.

I was seen on time and Dr. Crane was very friendly.
Our daughters love Dr. Crane! They argue over who will have their exam first.
The office was nice, clean, and all of the staff were very pleasant. I opted for an extra series of tests that aren't covered by my insurance (just in case) and afterward Dr. Crane showed me the images and explained what each meant in detail. In addition to my visit I got the impression that Dr. Crane is very accommodating to her return customers, as I believe she'd squeezed in another patient during that day in between her scheduled appointments; thought that was pretty cool for future emergencies. The support staff probably weren't as efficient as they could have been (forgot to dilate my eyes, didn't realize they needed to charge me for the extra exam until I mentioned it) but I chalked it up to relative newness of the office, and they were all pleasant anyway. Nothing egregious that extended my appointment time, and definitely not a deal breaker. I will definitely be coming back to this office!
I think so highly of Dr. Crane. She is incredibly intelligent, thorough and kind. Look no further. She's the best.
Dr. Crane was really thorough about making sure I had the right contacts for me. She really took excellent care of my eyes, which I hadn't been doing the best job of doing myself. Thank you!
I had a really pleasant experience here. I was seen right away, and Dr. Crane took her time figuring out the prescription that would be most comfortable for me (my eyes are two very different prescriptions, so I've had trouble with glasses in the past). I would definitely recommend her!
Dr. Crane is excellent. She is friendly, patient and thorough. I had headache/eye problems no other doctor could help me with, so I came to her frustrated and giving up. She was able to help me find a solution. I highly recommend her.
Perfect wellcoming and you're in the hands of an expert!
Dr. Crane was courteous, professional, fun, and efficient. I would certainly recommend her to a friend.

Great service/friendly staff, clean office !!! A+
She was GREAT!!!! Super nice and made me feel comfortable even while diluting my eyes! Definitely recommend!
Dr Crane is a thoughtful, informed and accessible practitioner who's great with kids as well as adults. She helps identify long-term issues that might arise in addition to performing our family's annual exams. The office manager is not so great - doesn't follow through (never emailed prescriptions although she promised she would and then sent wrong ones) and is curt on the phone.
Super thorough and informative, really friendly and pleasant!
It was awesome. I even came back with my wife!
Dr. Crane is thorough and caring. I felt listened to and understood, and she quickly was able to respond to my needs and adjust my glasses and contact lenses accordingly. All round an excellent experience.

Wonderful visit, I had some issues with my contacts and that translated into extra visits. Doctor and staff were always very willing to accomodate and help.
Danielle was great! She walked me through the whole process and explained my options clearly. She even showed me the pictures they took of the inside of my eye when I told her I was premed! I will definitely be going to her again for my ocular needs.

Dr. Crane was super friendly, very polite, and most of all knowledgeable. She answered my questions in a way that made sense to someone who doesn't know anything about eyeballs. Highly recommend her.
very professional & kind, would recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Crane was great, friendly, and helpful. However her office staff kept asking the same few questions over and over, and did not do a great job explaining my insurance. Also, the office was running about 30 minutes late.
She's great. I was so comfortable with Dr. Crane. she shows unusual warmth and kindness and her experience with children shows. She treated me with respect and humor and offered clear professional insights and practical advice for someone on a budget. A winner.
It was great. So friendly and knowledgeable.
Dr Crane was great; however, the office staff didn't clearly explain my insurance benefits so I didn't end up getting my contact prescription. Eye Q has a very limited selection of frames so I opted for purchasing my glasses elsewhere.
Great doctor, very thorough!
Very friendly and competent. I felt I was in good hands and was overall pleased with the appointment.
Great pediatric optometrist...very thorough!
Great pediatric optometrist...very thorough!
Dr. Crane is great. Professional and helpful in all aspects. However, the office staff could be more organized. My appointment was double-booked and I had to wait 30 minutes to be seen by another doctor (who was great though).
The appointment took almost no time at all. It was great.
I would say that my visit to see Dr. Crane was wonderful. I did show up a bit early and couldn't be seen until my appointment time, but that wasn't a problem at all. When I showed up in the office again at my appointment time, I was seen immediately! The bedside manner for everyone that took care of me was fantastic! My husband needs a new eye doctor and he will start seeing Dr. Crane now. Dr. Crane used to specialize in pediatrics so I will start bringing my 3 year old daughter and 8 year old son to see her as well. The office is also pretty clean and sanitary which is definitely another plus for me. I couldn't be any happier with my visit. I will be back to see her next year when I am due for another eye exam.
Thorough. Great experience. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Crane and her staff were very understanding, very nice. Large selection of glasses, many do tend to be pricey, but they are very stylish.
She is very personable and content. Funny. I feel like I am in very good hands.
Great visit. Was seen in less than 5 minutes and the appt. was thorough and quick.
Couldn't have asked for a more convenient, professional experience.
she was awesome. very professional but friendly and informative however not confusing. not a long wait at all and the office was extremely comfortable. relaxing music and great fungsuay. also, she had an excellent and abundant selection on frames. highly recommend scheduling an appointment with her.
Office was nice, I filled out my forms online so it didn't take long to be seen. Dr. Crane was friendly and efficient. The staff was also nice and they had a good selection of glasses.
She had great bedside manner and was very personable and easy to talk to. She thoroughly explained terminologies I wouldn't have understood otherwise.
Did not really listen to what I had to say, seemed to not believe what I was telling her. As a fellow health professional she did not seem to want to work with me to find a solution we were both satisfied with.
Very satisfied with my visit. She was much more thorough than any other eye doctor I've seen in NYC. Appointment started on time and I was out of there in 45 minutes. Would definitely recommend and am planning on taking my wife and toddler for a check-up in the future.
