Expertise and patience comes to mind when treated by Dr. Harry Engel. He took the necessary measures and tests to address and identify the root cause of any, and was articulate and detailed when translating his findings and diagnosis. As well, addressing any preventative and symptomatic cause & effect. Dr. Engel gets a 5-Star in my books.

You might find this review a bit unusual, and non traditional, but to me it is to the point. This is my first visit with Dr. Harry Engel. I have looked over at least 15 other Doctors in his field, and to me personally, it said: this is a real Doctor, not a wannabe, or still practicing one. That I gathered from his resume & picture. (not so much the reviews which i find a lot to be focused on nonsense rather than the essence of it). I was not disappointed, and found what I have expected: Dr. Engel is a detailed knowledgeable professional in his field . I think you will find and experience the same, when you see him. Thanks.

I've seen Dr. Engel for several years. He has always been an exceptional physician and I am going to miss being his patient after I move. It will be hard to find another ophthalmologist as great as him.

Dr. Engel was great! Probably one of the most comptent doctors I've seen. He discoverd the a prescription that I've had for over a year was completely missing my near-sightndness. He also had some sound advice for my retinal tears and I just trusted everything he says.

Dr. Engel is a great doctor of the old school. He truly believes in his craft as a calling and profession. His eye exams are thorough and reassuring. Even if you're just going for a glasses or contact lens prescription, you'll be much happier and safer going to him than to a cramped office in the back of some overpriced glasses store.

I had terrible experiences both times I've visited Dr. Engel's office. He and his staff are unfriendly and there is always a long wait time. Additionally I question his business practices and am concerned about his pressure tactics. Ultimately I got a second opinion and realized afterwards that Dr. Engel seems to be more concerned about his bottom line than his patients. I will never return.
