The staff were all very nice and the tests were very high tech (something that I appreciate). Ingrid helped me find the perfect frame for my new glasses. She is patient & awesome. Dr Gurjinder is clear, kind and made me feel very much at ease. I highly recommend her.

They won't give you the prescription in hand unless you push for it -- they want you to buy eye products from the Cohen's they're located inside.

Dr. Kaur was very kind and professional, but unfortunately my visit was fairly disappointing. I had to wait for around 40 minutes even though I arrived on time, and the first part of the appointment was very strange--the woman who didthe first tests didn't introduce herself to me or even say hello, she just gruffly told me where to sit and while she was examining me, she had another patient in the room at the same time and was going back and forth between us. I have never had this before at any other doctor's office. She also did a visual field test, which is not typical for someone my age (23) with good eyesight and no issues (I know this because I asked my regular eye doctor, who I had to make an appointment with after this one for reasons I'll get into.) When I saw Dr. Kaur, she was very nice, but there were a few issues--she told me that she "couldn't correct my vision to 20/20," which is odd because I've never had this issue before with my previous 2 eye doctors, and because my vision isn't that bad. She also told me that the visual field test showed that I "missed several dots in the middle of the screen," which she said was "weird," but didn't tell me why that was the case or if I should do anything about it. I was concerned that there was something wrong with my eyes since she made it seem like something weird was going on. Finally, she wrote me a prescription for new glasses, and when I got the new glasses, I couldn't see--my left eye was totally blurry. Because of this, I made an appointment with my old eye doctor, and he told me a) that he had no trouble correcting my vision to 20/20, and b) that my eyes looked completely normal and there was no reason I should've gotten a "weird" result on the visual field test, and c) that it was unusual to do a visual field test in the first place. I hate to write negative reviews for places, but it's frustrating that I spent time and resources on this visit when the glasses made my vision worse, and I ended up having to go to another doctor to get a second opinion on the nonexistent problems this doctor told me I had.

Dr. Gurjinder was very friendly and knowledgeable. But I only concern reception person and retailer is the little some attitude. They try to sell glasses soo hard. if a person not buying, sales associate attitude is changed. I understand isn'twithout Dr’s feedback but lots people watching... Just you know.!

I had a very normal appointment at this office. Ultimately, did not meet with Dr. Kaur, but the doctor that did see me was professional and easy to speak with. The wait time was a bit long, but it seems tobe expected with most doctor's appointments in the city. The support staff seemed friendly enough, but my experience didn't leave me that impressed overall. However, I would go back for another general exam.

Overall the experience was positive. I very much enjoyed my time with Dr. Kaur herself, although brief. Dr Kaur was friendly and knowledgeable, making sure to explain my exam and prescription clearly. She even went on to explain in detail thatmy current prescription was too strong, and that could be why my glasses would sometimes hurt. That being said, the nurses and assistants I dealt with were a bit abrasive and did not explain some of the testing I was doing. Overall the office was good, and I would recommend it to other people.

I liked the optometrist, but I didn’t like her office personnel. When I got called to go in, the guy bringing me to the back didn’t even greet me or look at me. The back of the office was a completemess filled with dirty boxes. The blonde lady who showed me throughout the back was very abrasive.

The staff is very nice and they do everything very swiftly and with care. Dr. Kaur was sweet but also wastes no time and gets right to business. She was still very professional and asked all the right questions. I wasin and out within maybe 30 minutes and was able to walk out with a prescription and a whole supply of contacts. One of the retail/salespersons was also super kind and walked me through the entire process of getting my rebate for my contacts and cleaned my wretched glasses in the process. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a quick, painless and professional eye exam. Pro-tip: It's a little unclear on ZocDoc, but the doctor's office is located inside/apart of the Cohen's Optical. There's a couple of other doctor-esque offices that have the same building number on that block so I had to call to be sure.

Staff was helpful, fast, and nice for the most part. Dr. Gurjinder Kaur also informed me about certain things about my eyes that my previous doctors never pointed out. She gave me an ample amount of trial contacts. The sales/retailers weren’ttoo pushy about purchasing my contacts from them either. Would recommend

Dr. Gurjinder Kaur was very patient with the process of finding the contact lenses that fit for my eyes. She gave me a variety of options to try on, left the room so I could see how each contacts felt forat least 5 minute. I didn’t feel rushed and when we finally found one that felt the most comfortable on me, she made sure I got a trial pair to try for at least 2 weeks before purchasing anything. She was genuinely caring and listened and wanted to solve my issues.
