Dr. Steiminger was AWESOME! He wanted to hear what my concerns were and gave me his honest feedback (which I appreciated).He explained everything to me as he was doing it and made me feel very comfortable. Very personable, professional and seems like a pretty cool guy. Would totally go back to see him in the future :)

My appointment was the first one of the day and I had scheduled it the evening beforehand. I was in andout very quickly. The eye doctor performed both an eye glasses exam and a contact lenses exam in one visit. He was very thorough. I did the eye exam with and without my contact lenses. He used a machine to test for glaucoma. He used another machine where you focus on an image. I was given an extra pair of contact lenses at the end of my visit.

Appt was quick and easy - staff and doc were friendly. As other reviews pointed out - didn’t clean off all the face/chin rests before used them which only bothered me a little. Otherwise helpful and considerate.

The doctor was nice and professional, although I will add he wasn’t very personal. He gets the job done and you’re out. It wasn’t a problem for me but I’d had warmer doctors before. The associates were very nice. One of them even helped me for about 20-25 min picking out the right frames. She was very patient and that meant a lot! Overall satisfied

The staff was very pleasant the doctor was pleasant but the place smelled really bad. It was extremely dirty and it smelled like the port authority McDonald's restaurant. There was no soap in the bathroom for employees or anyone else to wash their hands. There were no paper towels in the restroom either.

My appointment went well- the doc was professional, efficient and knowledgeable. My only disappointment is that I felt like the doc and staff were trying to "upsell" me the entire visit. The doc tried to convince me that my contacts were outdated and I should get a new brand. After a 100% satisfied trial with my contacts, I went to order boxes and 2 different staff members tried to upsell me again-- for contact brands I hadn't even tried. In sort- satisfied with my care- the rest of the visit felt like a department store.

Dr. Steiminger was helpful and made sure my prescription was correct before concluding the appointment. One note of concern however—during the tests conducted by the Doctor's assistant (glaucoma test etc.) prior to seeing Dr. Steiminger, the chin and forehead rests were not sanitized before to my use, as is customary in optometry offices. Also, while Dr. Steinminger sanitized the chin and forehead rests during my visit with him, he did not sanitize the part of the refractor that makes contact with the face. It's far too often in New York that doctors, nurses, and technicians don't properly sanitize their equipment, or are negligent in keeping the sterility of certain components sacrosanct. If this bothers you, I would suggest asking them to make sure they wipe it down with rubbing alcohol.

At first I was intimidated by the amount of people in the waiting area when I got in, but I ended up being seen by the assistant and the doctor in less than 10 minutes. Dr.Frank was sooooo nice and explained things to me about my eyes I never knew. I really appreciated that. He didn't rush and everything went very smooth. I highly recommend this practice to anyone now. Not everyone's situation is the same but I doubt anyone should have a hard time here.

Mr. Steiminger was professional in every way possible. He was very in depth as to what was going on with my eye. Before I had any of the questions prepped, he'd already answered it. I wouldn't say he's a mind reader. But he is in fact very good at what he does. Top dog in my books. Highly recommended.

The overall experience was pleasant. The staff was kind and attentive. The technician was descriptive on the exams and asked if I had a prior or current prescription. Very friendly. Dr. Steiminger was attentive to symptoms and asked about my eyesight and if I had any complications. During the exam he explained what he was doing and was honest about my results. I prefer to have someone be honest about needing glasses based on my sight and symptoms. I highly recommend.
