Verified Patient Reviews
Very nice ,doctor.
She was very nice and knew exactly what she was doing. A very open and professional demeanor. The office was nice and clean, going back in 6 months for a check up
Dr. Dian was nice and I liked the place. She explained each each step before doing anything. The only downside that even I came early to the appointment, I waited 30 min from my original time. Other than that, the visit was great.
Very nice! Make sure to read the office policies before you go!
I was in and out of the office in under 30 minutes. Very friendly and professional office.
Very nice and competent doctor. Wait time was very short (about ten minutes). I brought my contact prescription with me so updating it was not expensive, even without insurance.
Professional and informative. Was able to answer all my questions and offered a follow-up appointment.
She is so knowledgeable and thorough. As a precaution she sent me for Glaucoma testing and the specialist there highly commended her for taking the precaution.
Very direct, quick and professional. Definitely seemed concerned to help me find the best options for glasses and contacts.
Doc very professional and straight to the point. UNike some others, she actually goes thru the forms to read history. It was a general visit.
Was able to book same-day and was seen promptly at my appointment time. Couldn't have been easier. This office did not accept my vision plan but did accept primary my insurance, and the cost for an exam and contact lens checkup was comparable to the vision benefit price quoted by another nearby office. Highly recommend.
She was efficient and friendly.
It was nice.
Excellent optometrist. Extremely thorough and explained my issues clearly.
Great Office and Fantastic Doctor.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Iskander, however I do want to note that their office does not take any vision plan insurance--only medical insurance, which means you do have to pay out-of-pocket for glasses/contact lenses exam.
Dr.Iskander answered all of my questions honestly and kindly.
She seems knowledgeable and handled the visit In a kind but professional manner.
Very knowledgeable and kind!
Will definitely continue using Dr. Iskander! Very thorough visit.
Honestly, she was one of the best doctors that I've had. She listened to me really well and gave me a full check up unlike my previous eye doctor. She made me realize that getting a second opinion can lead to valuable insights. She gave me hope that my visual problems can have a solution. Great doctor, highly recommend!!
Great visit good location clean friendly courteous staff doctor great consultation manners friendly professional .Who made my visit easy going and welcoming...
She is very patient and open and honest. She is also a very nice doctor. I will definitely go back to her.
This is not a doctor you want near your eyes, I promise you.
Excellent, professional, knowledgeable, expert - recommended
My visit with Dr. Iskander was Amazing.
The entire family came for a check up and we were very pleased with Dr. Iskander. We saw her for the very first time. She was very patient with my daughters and would explain what she was doing. She was very thorough and did not rush through any steps. We left the office very happy and looking forward to see her again on the next yearly check up.
She was very professional and answered all of my questions. Will go to her again.
front desk/administration is unhelpful and not very knowledgeable
She was friendly, funny and right down to te point. Provided all the necessary info, no bull. Big fan.
I think she was fabulous! She will definitely be my eye doctor as long as I am in NYC!
Dr. Islander is very professional and thorough. She instills confidence. Would recommend her anyone that has scary eye conditions such as glaucoma.
I thought it was simple, sweet and to the point.
Very professional and informative in her treatment.
Excellent. I would highly recommend Dina Iskander and was very pleased with my visit.
I was comfortable... However the front office staff were having non professional conversations and a bit loud.
Fast and efficient- would recommend!!
She's great -- very personable and bright. The office could use some organizing, but I liked Dr. Iskander enough to not mind.
She was incredible. Can't wait to see her in one year!!
She was thorough and explained every procedure and outcome. She also described next step options. Would definately recommend.
Very personable! Was great at explaining everything.
She was very informative and did all of the eye exam herself, in the past I've always had techs do it so it was great to have her perform all the tests and talk to me about my contact and glasses options!
Dr. Iskander was great! She was very personable and knew exactly what she was doing. She explained the whole process as we went along which I appreciated. I'd definitely recommend her to others.
The appointment itself was good, Dr. Iskander was very knowledgeable and worked hard to get my prescription correct. However, i have been waiting over a week and a half for my contacts to come in without any notifications from the doctor's office. I've just called and they are on vacation for this entire week, something that she failed to mention at any point during my appointment. This will delay me getting my contacts until three weeks after my appointment, which is absolutely unacceptable. Though the doctor is good, communication is poor, and I would not recommend going here.
Great and Fast Service. Dr. Iskander is very nice.
Very friendly and thorough. Provided detailed answers to all of my questions. Made me feel very comfortable.
If you are looking for an optometrist that is going to fit you with a new pair of contacts that day and assist you in ordering them, this is the wrong place. Other optometrists I've gone to have given me new contacts during the visit, however after this visit all I walked out with was a prescription sheet with my numbers on it without a word about what to do with it. She seemed like she had better things to do with her time.
Great bedside manner, super fast. Would definitely recommend!
Dr. Iskander was nice, patient and intelligent. However, the wait time for my appointment was about 35 minutes, which seemed rather long.
I thoght Dr. Iskadler was great but didn't like the 35 minute wait. I would go back again, but defnitely call beforehand to check if there is a wait.
