I was seen more than two and a half hours late. The Dr. was in the exam room with me for no more than 5 minutes and I didn’t feel like he actually listened to any of my concerns. Not evenan apology for running late. Unprofessional, won’t be going back.

This office was rude and did not give me the information I needed. I had an appointment set and was told my wait time would be more than an hour, I tried asking questions to better understand what exactly they meantas they mentioned having to get my eyes dilated which didn't make sense because my appointment was for an updated prescription, not an eye exam. When I asked questions I was met with rude responses. Will never go here again and I don't recommend it to anyone else.

The technician was so great with my 12 year old, and so genuine and pleasant - that really made our day, as my son was apprehensive about the appointment and was quickly set at ease. Dr. Aliprandis was succinct, but gavethe information that was required and satisfied both my son's and my own expectations. Very pleased!

The supporting staff at this office are extremely exceptional. I thought I was not in NYC at all (I am not originally form NYC, and I live in another borough). Thanks to the modern equipment, and the highly trained technicians thatsupport the doctor, you do not spend time with him other than to check results and recommend any course of action. My hour commute to this office was worth it!

There was an extremely long waiting time supposedly due to one of their technicians being out sick. They couldn't find my appointment on their computer (very disorganized) which was quite annoying and the other patients in the office were notthe type of people I like to be around due to the fact that they didn't seem very tolerant of others, my appointment was for 1:45PM and I did not leave until after 4PM. Another thing is that they charge for giving you a prescription which I have never heard of. The doctor seemed pleasant and my exam was thorough but I do not know if I will be returning here.

I was there 15 mins before appointment (10 AM) Waiting time almost 2 hrs till I asked for 'why' Because someone from reception signed 'check in' column. That's why, nobody called my name. If I didn't asked, I would be sittingdown there for the whole day. Wasting my time for no reason.

It was a very good experience overall. The wait was a bit longer than I would have liked but the entire staff was very friendly and the doctor acknowledged my longer than expected wait time from the busy morning. However, beingin the medical field myself I understand wait time is something anyone has to expect when seeing a doctor. All my eye concerns were met along with solutions in a very clear manner.
