I visited the office today and the Dr And staff were very kind and welcoming..
My visit with doctor Speiser was great. The staff was friendly. My registration was very quick and I was seen with in less than 10 minutes. Dr. Spieser's partner was friendly and was on point with my eye examination for my contact lenses. I saw Dr. Speiser last for a diabetic eye exam. He explained the procedure well thank goodness everything went well. In the end we discussed follow up visits and he gave me very reasonable prices for my contact lenses. Overall it was a good experience I will definitely recommend his practice to family and friends.
As always, the visit was excellent. Dr. Speiser is not only a wonderful surgeon, but is a very compassionate person with a very strong work ethic.

DR WAS VERY NICE VERY HELPFUL EXPLAINED ALL I WAS VERY HAPPY WOULD HIGHLY RECCOMEND DR SPEISER
I JUST LOVE GOING TO HIS PRACTICE!
I feel bad leaving a lukewarm review but I had a strange experience here. Dr. Speiser was extremely nice and caring but I got a strange feeling from the rest of his staff. The staff was nice but the people behind the desk didn't appear to be overly professional. Also, the woman who did my initial eye evaluation started my exam without asking me any questions. Shortly after the start of the exam I mentioned some of my eye problems (the details of those issues were on my pre-arrival forms.) She got very angry with me and said to me "Well it would have been nice if you had told me that in the first place." In the end I was given a prescription that had numbers scribbled out and rewritten. After filling out the prescription I was left with eyeglasses that gave me a headache, this is the first time I have ever had an incorrect set of eyeglasses. I have now had this pair of glasses for 9 months and I have been afraid to go back to them to get my glasses corrected. I just can't go back here but I really did like Dr. Speiser.
Dr. Speiser is Wonderful... he actually is my sons optical care provider.... I had an emergency, went onto zocdoc to start up... along the way Dr.Speiser called me ... I was able to make an appointment the very next day...he was able to answer all my questions and ease my worries.... I would gladly have Dr. Speiser care for the rest of my family.
Excellent and knowledgeable in his field. Personable and organized. They should all be like him.
Thorough and professional, as usual. Dr. Speiser always explains what he is looking for and what the tests show.
Great visit. Doctor was both thorough and quick while being patient with the patient. A wonderful ophthalmologist!
As always, Dr. Speiser is knowledgeable, professional and ready to answer any questions.
I was taken right away and given excellent medical care. I was not rushed in any way and all my questions were answered. I highly recommend dr Speiser!!
Dr Speiser is an excellent doctor. I would highly recommend him. With that said, his "front desk" staff are not friendly people. They do not greet people properly. They need to work on being friendly. I don't think they realize that they reflect who Dr. Speiser is!
Very professional & caring
