I would definitely recommend Dr. Zabarko. I didn't have any issues finding the office. There was a sign with the officenumber on the left when I first walked into the building. They let me know at the beginning of the apt. how much my insurance would cover towards the eye exam and my particular brand of contacts. I definitely appreciated this so I knew ahead of time that my insurance would cover most the cost and exactly what was left for me to cover. Dr. Zabarko gave a thorough eye exam and emailed me my prescription right away. They will be mailing me my contacts so I don't have to drive to pick them up. I felt everyone in the office was extremely nice. The entire apt took less than an hour as I didn't have to wait to be seen. I recently moved to this area and I'm glad I was able to find a new eye doctor so easily.

(Nighttime Appointment - January 2019). First, I found the office difficult to find. It was on the second floor of a complex and there were no signs anywhere.. so you kind of just had to peek your head around each cornerand walk everywhere and make your best judgment to where it is. I get in and the one girl at the front desk was nice. She takes my info, then asks me to take a seat. The next girl who looked like the glasses specialist brings me into a room, looks at my eyes with a machine for 2 seconds, then brings me back to the sitting area. Okay. Doctor walks past and did not say hi or anything. A few minutes later the doctor comes back and brings me into another room for the exam. The visit was very brief and very quick (felt un-thorough). We did not talk about my history with glasses, and it seemed like everyone in the office kept pushing for contacts. I don't want contacts, thank you, I'll keep wearing glasses. So during the first part of the exam she wasn't very clear with the tests and again, very quick. Next thing I know she is putting yellow drops in my eyes saying that this is to "check the pressure in my eyes". I had NO idea she was actually prepping me to dilate my eyes. Those drops burned my eyes and made them numb, obviously, so it made it hard to go on with the rest of the exam. It was REALLY hard for me to keep my eyes open and straight. I felt like I was being pushed through and nothing was being explained to me. Well, next comes the clear drops that dilate my eyes, she says this is to "check if my eyes are healthy". Immediately she brings me back in the waiting room to the glasses specialist to pick out new glasses. I wasn't ready to pickout new glasses... I never said I wanted to purchase new glasses at that time. The girl wasn't rude, but she was not friendly in the least. I tried on a few but you could see she was thinking she could be doing something better with her time. I tell her "thank you for showing me some glasses. I think I will just buy new glasses at a later time though". She then asks for my copay, I pay it and sit down again. Meanwhile, my eyes are dilating and all numb and I just felt plain uncomfortable. After 10 minutes or so, doctor brings me back in so she could examine the inside of my eyes. Again, very quick. Look up, down, left right, up, down, left, right... done. Leaving and driving home was the worst part. I live about 45 minutes from this doctors office in Wayne, but luckily my fiancé lives 10 minutes from there so I drove to his house. The ground was wet because it was raining so I had the blurriness from that, and all the car lights reflecting made it worse and I swear it was the hardest thing trying to get home. Before I left, I asked the glasses specialist girl if they had those shades they give to people who had their eyes dilated. She had them, sure... but when I got to the car I realized they were too dark (like regular daytime sunglasses), and they didn't fit me so they wouldn't stay on unless I held them up to my face. It was unpleasant. I got my new prescription, and she said my eyeballs were fine. Good. But, I don't think I will be going back to this office in the future. The doctor herself seemed to be a gentle person. She was visibly pregnant and I only wish her the best for her and her growing family. I just wish I didn't feel so rushed in and out, and I wish that I was explained what was happening with the dilation so I could be prepared.

It was amazing. Everything was so quick and professional. I was there today and made an appointment today due to failure of my old doctor giving me a timely appointment that fits my schedule. I am already recommending people. They alsogave me my prescription glasses on the spot. Will consider her my new eye doctor.

Dr Zabarko was great. Her office staff was extremely friendly from the confirming phone call the day before my appointment until I walked out of the door. They greeted me the second I walked in the office and from there Iknew it was would a great visit. The doctor was very hands on and explained everything. She was very caring from start to finish. The office is also very beautiful as well. I’m so glad I went to see dr Zabarko. I will definitely be a returning patient.

When I saw all of these great reviews it made me excited to go to my yearly exam. The front desk woman was friendly. The actual doctor herself was unremarkable. She did her job, nothing above. She charges a large sumto get an exam for contacts. I have been getting contacts since adolescence and have never been charged an extra fee. I have had the same insurance for decades so I'm unsure what happened there (I work for insurance so I am familiar with my plan). It seemed like everything came down to money here.

Dr. Zabarko’s staff members are professional and kind. The office is very aesthetically pleasing and well designed! As a new patient, who had pre-filled forms via the ZocDoc App, my wait time was very limited. Once in the exam room, Dr.Zabarko arrived just shortly after I had been seated. I was immediately met with an inviting and sincere smile and handshake that was easing and calming. After my exam, Dr. Zabarko delivered and explained the results proficiently but simple enough to easily understand. She then saw me out and sent me to check out. I was able to pay via debit card. I will DEFINITELY be seeing Dr. Zabarko and her courteous staff again! Overall, it was a very pleasant experience.

This was the best eye doctor visit I have had. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, Dr. Zabarko was amazingly patient, kind, and friendly. This is an office full of good people and that's awesome but I also have topoint out that Dr. Zabarko is an amazing eye dr. She noted that the lenses that had been prescribed to me years ago were not the best fit. She put me into new lenses that feel so much better on my eye and I can see much better than I have previously. I highly recommend Dr. Zabarko, she and her staff are awesome.
