I got there about 25min early. The had me fill out a few forms that zocdoc doesn't have and started my appointment soon afterward. Everyone was very friendly and made sure I understood everything they were telling me.

Was frustrated that they did not check my insurance before the appointment. I ended up giving them my main insurance card instead of my supplemental vision and had to pay out of pocket for the appointment. Not their fault, but stilla frustrating experience that I feel could have been avoided.
