Despite that the Zocdoc appointment was not entered into their system, they were able to fit me in with a wait of about 25 minutes. Nice doctor who did a thorough exam and reached a diagnosis and treatment plan in justa few minutes. I will go back to him for a follow up in one month. Vet professional and friendly staff.

I was looking for a new ophthalmologist and Dr. Besser is that doctor. He is a charming, knowledgeable practitioner who made me feel comfortable, as did his entire office, who completely won my trust.

Dr. Besser and his staff were efficient and friendly. The only area of opportunity is the hallways of the building itself, including the hallway directly into the office, contained litter which is not the best reflection on the office on afirst visit. I was rescheduled from my original zocdoc appointment so not sure Zocdoc was not up to date on scheduling or it was the doctor's office but otherwise it was fine.

Have loved both visits to Dr. Besser's office. He is attentive and thorough, but also very kind and takes the time to explain (and even draw diagrams). Would highly recommend.

I'm reluctant to recommend a doctor to someone--even if they ask. More importantly, I will definitely go back to see Dr. Bessler. He is well-qualified, professional, attentive, and straight-forward.

He's very personable and open and refreshingly in the 21st century where he knows that, well, people Google things. I have to wait and see how my eye turns out because what he saw wrong was different from what I saw wrong, but I really like him as a professional.
