The doctor was great. He not only listened to my concerns and carried out the usual exams but he also solved it right there and then instead of making me come back for the procedure I got done to my eyes.He also gave me sample and coupons, which was extremely helpful. The waiting time was absolutely unacceptable though. I have to wait over 1h30 after my appointment time.

Loved it. Hasn't been to an opthamologist in a long time and wanted some reading glasses. He wrote me a prescription for my eyes and a lingering stye and popped some plugs in for my dry eyes. He listens really welland talks as he's diagnosing. Natalie the receptionist was also real friendly.

Dr. Kamen is kind, gentle, and knows how to get the job done. I get very nervous when anything gets anywhere near my eyes. He made me feel at ease. Thank you so much! Went in twice, once for my yearlyeye exam, and again for dry eye treatment. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Kamen and his staff went above and beyond my expectations. It was my first time going to the eye doctor in about 5 years, and I was nervous about finding someone who would take the time to listen to myconcerns and do a thorough examination. Everyone at the front desk was helpful answering my insurance questions, I was seen very shortly after arriving. The doctor didn't make me feel rushed and made sure we addressed everything that was needed. I will be back!

He's a very kind man. But his office is very disorganized. They accidentally ordered my "final" prescription while having me test a few different prescriptions - then did not follow through with my insurance company to correct the error. Additionally,the doctor seemed distracted during tests - I had to remind him to change the card because i'd been looking at the same letters for 3 consecutive adjustments. Lastly, he seemed very dependent on his machines, the kind that are used in retail prescription stores, to determine my prescription.

The front office staff was very polite and understanding when it turned out I had left my wallet in the car and had only an insurance card on me. Dr. Kamen asked me different questions and seemed mentally present as hespoke to me--I didn't get that terrible feeling of "they're not really paying attention, are they?" His diagnosis was quick and confident after he checked out my eyes and a day later I already feel ten times better! Thank you, Dr. Kamen!
