The service was excellent, the front desk took my insurance and my ID and in no time I was ready to see the doctor, the pre test was super fast. My appointment took no more than 1 hour from time I came in and left.

A bit disappointed with Zocdoc and the service provider. I filled out all the forms on zocdoc. Spent my valuable time. When I got the the Doctor the secretary was very rude and told me that zocdoc is useless and theydo not accept they forks. The secretary said that zocdoc forms make it harder for them and I must fill out their forms. I ended up spending another 20 minutes filling out the forms. This is really disappointed. Other than that doctor was really nice.

He was very thorough in my eye examination and gave me several treatment options for my specific condition and walked me through what each of those options would entail. I highly recommend Dr Rubinchik.

I had a pleasant visit. Everyone was courteous and professional. The office and equipment was very clean and I was seen almost immediately. The whole visit was about 30-40 min long. They performed all nessesary tests and found the damage inmy left eye. They than gave me a recommendation to a specialist needed to fix the problem. I intend to use them again in the future for follow ups and further testing as needed and I would recommend them to you and anybody else that needs to see an opthalmologist.

I know Dr. Rubinchick for many years. Next month his office would be closer to my home and probably continue to see this doctor. All office stuff really friendly and professional, the waiting time a little bit longer, then I expected:visit to oftalmologist take a lot of time, because of tests. All together with travel time took more, then 3 hours of my time. I am going to make appointment using your application again. Thank you.

There are many patients so my waiting time is understandable but the way i was attended to first by the clinician wasvvery professional and then when it was time for Dr. Rubinchik to check me he was very thoroughb & helpful.Would definitely visit him again for any ophthalmic cocerns even though its far from us. We live at Rego Park Queens but its worth the visit .Satisfactory!!

I had my first appointment with Dr. Rubinchik today. the staff at the front desk were pleasant, and friendly. The wait time before I was seen was very minimal. the woman who took me in first to do the eye exam/dilatethe pupils, took her time with me, was very thorough and patient, and answered any questions I had. I had a very good experience at this office, and would definitely recommend this doctor to friends. :)
