Loved the place and the doctors. Front desk staff a little bit “dry” but maybe it is necessary. Just would beperfect if I could make my 2 glasses with discount in different days. Not sure if is a office policy or insurance policy.

It was an awesome visit. He is wonderful to talk to. Very patient, and energetic! With regards to the expenses, I find this place a bit too expensive if you want to get glasses, etc. Good place to visit for casual checkups

Quick, professional, helpful, informative! Dr. Borukhov and his staff helped me understand the state of my eye health and vision — as well as how to navigate my vision insurance for the best savings. I feel confident that I have partners in ensuring the long term health of my eyes with Dr. Borukhov and his team!

Reception was prompt and prescreening with the nurse was quick. Dr. Borukhov saw me directly after and listened closely as I described the issues of concern. Afterwards, he was very thorough in explaining his diagnosis based on both on my anecdotal explanation and the scans taken of my eyes. I also appreciate how he recommended a further dilation of the pupils to be certain the prescription considered was correct and not in need of further calibration. I did not feel hurried or pressured to execute the prescription in their shop, although they do provide glasses in house. Overall, a positive experience.

Although there was some wait time, the doctor was thorough in the eye exam. He was very patient during the checkup and suggested good contact lenses.

Dr. Borukhov was very thorough and explained everything he was doing in detail. I felt that he actually cared about examining how my eyes function instead of just checking my vision and selling me a pair of glasses. The office has new technology that doesn't require dilation for an exam so I was able to go to work right away afterwards.

What I really valued was that he took the time to explain things to me — for example, walking me through what he was looking for in the images they took of my eye.

Very to-the-point and explained everything so I understood clearly. Also looks out for patients’ best interests (gave me a lower prescription than previous doctors, which will reduce my eye strain). Recommended!

I really loved my experience with Gregory Borukhov and his team. Everyone was so nice, and they were extremely helpful in explaining what my insurance covered (which was initially my main concern). The service was amazing and prompt. Dr Borukhov didn't mind spending time to explain the scans and gave me a quick lesson on eye anatomy, which was very interesting. Clean office, convenient location. All good things!

I have a very complex contact lens fitting (severe near-sightedness, age related macular degeneration, astigmatism), and 3 prior doctors were unable to properly fit me for contact lenses that were suitable for reading and driving. Dr. Burukhov spent almost an hour with me going through my history, prior issues, objectives, and spent a lot of time fine tuning / testing until we got exactly the right lens to maximize my ability for reading and distance. A wonderful caring doctor who asks all the right questions and works really hard to get the best results for the patient.

Dr. Borukhov was fantastic! Was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of my contact lens fitting and eye exam. I was out of lenses and he gave me lots of samples which was extremely helpful. Didn't wait for my exam, was seen right away. Really nice office in great location on Park Avenue, very convenient to my office. This is definitely my new eye doctor! Would recommend him to anyone looking for a great eye care physician. --Stanley W.

Dr. Borukhov was so great. The best eye doctor I've ever been to. He obviously loves his work and was so detailed and thorough in explaining things. He diagnosed an issue that I'd been struggling with for a while. I even went to my primary care physician about it and she couldn't find anything wrong. Dr. Borukhov figured it out as soon as I told him my symptoms. I'll have no trouble keeping up with annual eye examines!

The doctor was very good and I was able to get a prescription for my glasses and contacts. But the wait was so long! I arrived on time and even though the office wasn't packed with patients, I spent at least 2.5 hours there. I would go into the office and then be sent out again to wait for the doctor multiple times.

I scheduled my appointment my 3 days before, and my appointment was re-scheduled the day before. They did notify me the day before but after the appointment was reschedule, and were not apologetic at all. Not sure why it took them 2 days to realize the appointment was already taken. Also, my appointment ended up being almost 2.5 hours, which is excessive for an eye appointment. There was an initial wait, then a wait after dilation, plus additional wait to check out with intermittent breaks. The doctor seemed very knowledgeable and on point and answered all of my questions, although the staff could be friendlier. Maybe it is just a busy office, but I like staff who are more personable. It feels like doctor offices in nyc are always trying to rip you off. You always get that nagging feeling.

When I first got there they said I was not on the appointment list even though I had booked through Zoc Doc and I had received a reminder. But they did slot me in right away.
