Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Engel is a no-nonsense, straight-to-business professional who works quickly and efficiently with multiple patients. That said, he's also a little gruff and somewhat cold and impersonal in comparison with other ophthalmologists I've seen.
Smart, thorough, friendly with a professional team who treat you like a human being.
I found Dr. Engel through Zocdoc when I thought it would be a good idea to establish a relationship with an eye doctor as my body and eyes began to age. Up to this point, I visit only for my annual checkup (knock wood). The office is comfortable and serine. The doctor always sees me on time (disclaimer, I typically book an early appt). While I don't know much about the profession, I sense that Dr. Engel is very through as he goes through examination. Bedside manner is a subjective thing, but I do find him to be concise and clear in his direction during the exam and has always answered questions to my satisfaction. If there is the need for me to ever receive more extensive treatment, I would stick with Dr. Engel.
Great doctor, to the point and very professional in every way. Found things my regular doc did not.
Very thorough, personable, and professional. Assessed the issue, explained it in clear terms, and told me how to treat it.
I've been going to Dr. Harry for the past six years and he's always a true proffessional. Wait time is short and the office is allways clean.
Dr. Harry is fantastic. I had a tiny plastic inside my eye and he was able to quicly find it and remove it in a very smooth way. I did not feel anything, it was great. He also was very patient to clarify my questions while he performed a full checkup of my eyes. Highly recommend him.
He seemed decently knowledgeable, but bedside manner was very poor and didn't bother explaining anything he was doing
All good, he knows what he is doing & make me feel comfortable.
Dr. Engel is great - very thorough, but practical. His assistant Alice is wonderful!

Dr. Engel is thoroughly professional and was willing to explain andwers to questions i had.
The office was very clean and we'll managed. The staff was friendly and Dr. Engle was very professional and helpful.
He is good and care about paitiant
Good experience. Took his time. Didn't jump to recommending surgery .
I was taken very close to my scheduled visit time. Dr. Engel's staff is incredibly nice and personable. Dr. Engel gave a thorough exam. and explained what he was looking at on the photographs in a way that made it understandable. I definitely recommend Dr. Engel.
There was a bit of a long wait, but I have no complaints about Dr. Engel himself, who was great.
The best ever. He was very good.
Dr. Engel is an excellent physician and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
He was professional , caring and took an interest to get to know to me as a new patient.
Excellent. Both Dr Engel and his support staff are quick, friendly and efficient.
Very thorough exam. Very courteous and knowledgeable doctor.
I chose him because of all the good reviews but for the issues that I had with my eyes I wasn't impressed with the feedback he provided
Dr. Engel was patient and knowledgeable; he addressed all of my concerns calmly and didn't make me feel rushed (as some doctors can do). I will certainly recommend him to friends and family.
Very professional and provided accurate , helpful information. Dr. Engel will be my eye doc.
He was concise, pleasant, but friendly. I felt comfortable with him and he spoke to me in a way to ensure I understood the issue at hand.
Dr. Engel seems to know his stuff. He was professional and thorough. The front desk and the doctor's assistant were helpful and pleasant. After examining me (my first eye exam in 8 years!) Dr. Engel referred me to another specialist for a vision problem I've been having. I'm hoping to get it resolved quickly.
Dr Engel was the best he heard my complaints and was able to really and thoroughly check my eyesight. I am very happy and satisfied with my visit. I recommend him anytime. The only thing is that the office was way too hot that is my only comment.
This was my first time at his office. He was very professional and I will definitely come back.
Very clean and friendly office. Professional and knowledgeable Doctor.
Dr Engel is knowledgeable, prompt and thorough - everything you want from a doctor. I highly recommend him.
Very good experience. Answered all my questions. Thank you!
The doctor is always very approachable, knowledgeable and willing to listen.
great! quick and efficient, personable and helpful
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. Daniel
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.
Got in the same day for an appointment and he was very professional and thorough.
This was my first visit, there was no wait to schedule the appointment, although I turned up late there were no issues, the wait time which was approx. only 10 minutes, the staff were casual and but professional, the doctor had a sense of humor and the exam although thorough went by quickly, one felt confident in his abilities, I will definitely return.
Knowledgeable and nice doctor. Wait time was reasonable. Can definitely recommend.
Complete and very good.
It was great. Quick, pleasant and professional.
Nice Doc and pleasant staff.
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.
Dr. Engel was great - very knowledgeable & personable, listened to my issues/concerns, His staff was also very friendly and helpful.
Pleasant, efficient, thoughtful.
Dr. Engel is wonderfully knowledgeable and attentive. I highly recommend his practice.
As usual, professional and caring.

He really did a thorough checkup on my eyes! I am very satisfied and happy and the facility is great!I would highly recommend him!!!
I could not have felt better taken care of in every way. Dr. Engel is an esteemed doctor in his specialty and I felt honored to be in his offices.
I never review doctors, but had a really thorough and efficient visit today with this doctor. Answered all my questions clearly - highly recommend.
The doctor was pleasant, but the receptionist was a bit rude.
Dr, Engel is gentle, thorough, personable, and listens to my concerns. The office staff are professional and personable. I like the conveniently located office, too.
Very personable and relaxed.
Great doctor to go to.
Great experience. Would recommend to anyone requiring his specialty.
Dr. Engel was very knowledgeable and professional. The staff were friendly and the whole process was quick and straight-forward.
Calm, competent and reassuring. On time and thorough. Great visit!
Very pleasant. Staff were friendly and efficient. No time was wasted. Dr. Engle was thorough but you do have to ask your questions. He was very patient, personable demeanor and answer all my questions as thoroughly possible. Definitely would go again.
A great doctor! I had a serious problem with my eye but he talked me through all my options and did a great job saving as much of my vision as possible. One of the best eye doctors in New York!
Excellent physician, will recommend him to my own patients looking for a retina specialist. A+
I was very pleased with my office visit with Dr. Engel, he's highly professional and was very patient with me. I was anxious about my visit and eye condition. He made me feel comfortable and confident under his care. His staff are wonderful and friendly and I was seen without a wait. After I got home from my appointment I called to ask a question and Dr. Engel got back to me immediately. I really appreciated his call and quality of care.
I am very happy to have Dr Engel as my Opthamologist. He is friendly and i feel comfortable with him. He also explains thoroughly my eye condition.
Very polite and straight forward doctors. Explained everything well and answered all questions without any unecessarily intimidating big words. Very neat and clean clinic.
He is a good doctor.
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.
Dr Engel was a breath of fresh air. He paid attention to my comments/questions and responded to each with a response that showed respect. He is very professional, personable and thorough. I would highly recommend him.
This was my first appointment, but I would return and refer others. I felt that Dr. Engel listened and took his time to conduct a thorough examination. I trusted that I was in good hands.
Dr. Engel is thorough, if not communicative. He goes about his business quietly. Be prepared to ask him what he is doing; he will explain clearly. If you do not ask, he won't tell.
He is very competent
Dr. Engel is the best eye doctor, my mom is lucky to have him. He is very smart, intelligent, professional, he knows what he is doing and he is always available for his patients. It is incredible how much work he has done to save my mom's eye that had dosens of retina holes. We trully appreciate everything he has done.
He was very thorough in his evaluation and had useful advice to offer.
He was very thorough and professional. I will be going back!
Dr. Engel listened to my concerns and checked my eyes thoroughly. I was very satisfied with my visit today.
Great demeanor; friendly, and made me feel at ease when nervous about a recent injury. Straightforward but not rude at all. Convenient location and hours.
Goes out of his way. Great staff.
I was in there to see if I had any retinal damage. It turns out- not. He really knows what he is doing. I was told by another office that the right eye would do the same weird thing that the left eye did, but Dr. Engel noticed that it had already done so without event. The joys of being near-sighted! I really recommend him, he was extremely thorough.
Professional, personable, prompt and thorough. I was in and out of there in less than an hour and had my pupils dilated. He and his secretary were both lovely. I will be back for sure.
the wait time was unusual--they usually get you in pretty fast.
Great! very welcoming!
He is a good doctor who know what he do very well.
Dr. Engel was very professional and pretty nice and extremely helpful.
Dr. Engel was outstanding. I saw the reviews, and it was positive, so I made an appointment. It turned out much better than my expectations. He is patient and detailed. He diagnosed issues that I had with Diabetes and High Blood Pressure through my eye examination. I made a follow up appointment to see him in 6 months so he can monitor my progress.
very professional and informative
I absolutely loved the way I was treated. The staff is very nice. Great bedside care. I was seen right away. Dr. Engel is very nice and friendly. I would def be back in 2 years for my follow up. The office is intimate and cozy, very clean.
I was very well taken care of. I had explanation for everything and I feel like I learnt something. Good conversation too with the technician. It was fun. I need to go back for confirmation of the diagnostic. I didn't like the doctor making me wait after the technician's analysis.
Aside from the long office wait which was unexpected for a 10AM appointment on Sunday, Dr. Engel was thorough and professional. Although there is apparently no remedy for the problem I came to see him about, he took the time to explain his findings and gave me comfort that there were no more serious issues at hand.
Great! Diagnosed a problem which had gone undiagnosed for 5 years
He was very nice, reassuring, and diagnosed/ treated the issue immediately. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Engel is a great attentive doctor. I highly recommend his practice.
Dr. Engel is competent. He seemed slightly distracted. The staff was pleasant and efficient.
Friendly, professional, easy to make appts. Will continue to go there. Highly recommend !!!
I felt that the examination was very thorough. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Office is clean and well decorated. The receptionist was very pleasant and helpful. Saw a technician within 5 mins, and then saw the doctor within 20 mins. Doctor has good bedside manner. Highly recommend.
I was very happy with my recent visit with Dr. Engel. It was my annual checkup and I was seen at my scheduled time by the technician who did the basic workup followed by Dr. Engel's examination.
The receptionist was horrible but the doctor was fine
Dr. Engel is professional and thorough.His staff is courteous and pleasant. I have seen him for diabetic retinal exams and have been quite satisfied with the exam and his approach.
I really liked Dr. Engel! I will definitely continue to use him as my eye doctor! Lovely little office in the Upper West Side, I was about 10 minutes late for my appt and they were really nice about it, I didn't even have to wait. Highly recommend!
I felt something was really wrong with my eye, and went to Dr Engel because of his reputation as a retina specialist. Well, something was really wrong, and he was able to fix it with a laser right then and there in the office. I was pretty nervous about having surgery on my eye, but felt I was in good hands. He is not a warm and fuzzy kind of doctor, but answered all my questions and gave a detailed explanation of what was wrong, and what I needed to do to heal well. The follow up has been good!
He's awesome and thorough
Wonderful bedside manner; his nurse, Kim, is fabulous, too! Very through and detailed examine, but did not take too long. I will be back next time I have eye questions!
He is a serious and knowledgeable doctor who gives patient confidence in treatment.
I would recommend Dr. Engel to friends because he diagnosed my condition where other opthamologists before him did not.
I thought Dr. Engel was excellent. He made me feel very comfortable given how squeemish I am w/ my eyes. I highly recommend him.
Very nice doctor/ space/ and staff. Answered phone himself when the receptionist went on a break; he acknowledged my presence. I'll be back and will be telling my family, friends and neighbors about his practice too.
Dr. Engel was extremely professional and pleasant. He took time to answer all my questions. I would definitely see him again in the future if the need arises.
Great practice. Assistant was great and we started early and the doctor was great too.
The wait was extremely long (almost 1 hour) but he was very nice and helpful.
Good, professional. I would see him and his staff again.
Dr. Engel was very pleasant and informative. His receptionist was very welcoming and pleasant as well. I would definitely recommend him.
Great experience. Was very concerned with answering all questions and helping me understand the specifics of eye surgery. Did not try to give me things I didn't need. Will definitely be going back!
Office is hard to find and not at all inviting! No a/c in waiting room on a 88 degree summer day! Receptionist was on a personal call for quite some time and could be overheard by patients. This was in the Riverdale Bronx office. I would add that the Dr. Seemed competent. I would not return there as there is no regard for patients time or comfort. The patients were brought to the back of the office where there was a window a/c. We were seated directly outside treatment room. Not sure if others could overhear conversation between Dr and patient. Maybe Manhattan office is better? I have never encountered such a dilapitated office.
Thorough, professional and friendly
Very thorough and professional - he answered all my questions and spent time with me. Without a doubt he is an expert in his field.
I recently moved to an apartment located across the street from the Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia. Although a recent episode prompted a visit to their emergency room, I chose to return to Dr. Engel for my follow-up and continuing care. He is thorough and reassuring; he uses language I can understand and takes time to answer my questions.
I've never been taken outside to look at things to determine a prescription. Extremely bizarre appointment.
A long wait. Will see how my eye problem responds to his treatment procedure
Dr. Engel and his staff are truly wonderful. Thorough, kind, personable, and efficient. I would recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Engel's eye exam is most thorough and comprehensive. His nurse, Kim, is also a kind and accomplished professional. I travel quite a distance for my annual check up because I trust his expertise.
Dr Engel is awesome! He is very thorough and explains everything. His office staff is very friendly.
Dr. Engel is friendly, efficient and capable. All my questions were answered with thoughtful consideration and he elicited information about factors affecting my eyeglass prescription, Highly recommended.
I had seen multiple doctors who told me that my vision was OK! Well I knew something was wrong, so I went to visit Dr. Engle who was very polite and took his time with me. It was a relief because doctors usually just want to rush you out of the office. I went and got a diagnosis that satisfied me. finally someone agreed that my vision wasn't OK.
Always great to visit Dr. Engel. He gets my prescription and any eye concerns under control right away and very thoroughly. First doc to tell me I was actually over-corrected on my lenses and what a difference it made!
Had a great appointment with Dr. Engel. Office staff was super friendly, and Dr. Engel was very professional and informative. I would very highly recommend him!
I highly recommend Dr. Engel. He is very knowledgable - Dr. Engel takes the time to listen to your concerns/questions and provides explanations. Additionally, his staff is friendly and efficient. Overall, I was very pleased with my visit and would highly recommend Dr. Engel.
Dr Harry Engel office staff are professional, and very helpful. I love the environment! It was exactly what I was looking for. Dr Engel is very cooperative and has this great disposition about him. I really can't find anything negative to say about the west side retinal ophthalmic surgery at this point.
He is a great doctor who will take the time to answer all of your questions, but the technician, Kim, kind of mumbles and gets annoyed when you ask her to repeat herself. I'm not sure what happened with scheduling, but there was a but of confusion with patients who had had their eyes dilated and who hadn't and how long we were waiting. Overall though, he's a great and considerate doctor.
Dr. Engel was professional and got the job done, but he was a bit cold and, at times, verging on slightly rude.
He is very professional and had a great bedside manner. Nice office.
Office organized and quick to see me. Smart doctor and patient. Thoroughly tested to diagnose and properly explained to me.
Very thorough exam. Was reserved in manner and he gave me all the info I asked for. But I did have to ask what things meant and how they applied to me. Factual info here without an idea of what changes may come down the line doesn't help a layman. In the end the visit served its purpose,confirming that my eyes were changing and not for the better, unfortunately. Came away with new contact lens prescription. We'll see how it may help.
I thought Dr. Engel was excellent. He provided me with an excellent perspective on the health of my eyes, while also helping me walk away with a solid awareness of any potential long-term risks I should be aware of.
He was nice but also a little kurt.
Dr. Engel is fantastic. After nearly ten years of living with seemingly 'inexplicable' blurred vision, I was finally given an answer to the cause. Dr. Engel took his time to understand and analyze my problem and once he solved it, he took the time to explain in detail (on a giant plastic eye replica no less!) what seems to be causing the blurriness.
Enjoyable and fast.
It was convenient, thorough and professional. All of my questions were patiently answered.
very professional, friendly and an excellent doctor. would recommend him to anybody.
He"s a great Dr,
I felt he was very thorough and addressed my concerns.
Dr. Engel was extremely helpful, kind and amusing. He saw me immediately and gave me a very thorough examination. I had a scratch on my left eye and his diagnosis alleviated the pain within 24 hours.
Dr. Engel and his team are awesome. He is very knowledgeable in his field. Dr. Engel took the time to assess and make an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. His team is very compassionate and welcoming. I would highly recommend Dr. Engel.
Not very informative. Didnt suggest any other alternatives to help with the situation. Didnt correct the problem
Waste of my time
He's great. Takes his time and let's you know when and if you need to come back. Explains everything he's checking.
Quick and to the point. Dr. Engel gets right down to business and had me out the door in no time!
Pleasant office staff, professional demeanor. Technician was curteous, listened well. Dr. Engel was thorough, respectful and performed exam as I expected. Office is highly accessible on W. 72nd St. near Central Park. Nice relaxed decor. Patient bathroom was sparkling clean.
Excellent retinal specialist and surgeon.
Dr. Harry Engel was thorough during my annual vision exam as was his assistant. He made me feel comfortable and explained everything that he was doing. I would definitely recommend him! His receptionist is also very sweet and organized.
I was 40 minutes early for my appointment. The receptionist, who was very warm and welcoming, promptly took care of my paperwork. Before I could sit and wait for the remaining 30 minutes, the technician, Kim, called me to get started with the screening. She was very pleasant, and her personality was a ray of sunshine on such an overcast, rainy day! I left the office only 15 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. Dr. Engel was with another patient during my screening. I waited 4 minutes between screening and seeing Dr. Engel. He was inviting, personable, and a very good listener. He asked the necessary questions, answered mine, and explained in visual detail the concepts I didn't quite understand. The office is very clean, quiet, comfortable; the bathroom clean, tidy, and odorless; the decor tranquil; environment nurturing. Overall, I felt well taken care of. Leaving felt, strangely, almost like saying goodbye while leaving a beloved family member's home. I highly recommend this location and staff.
Easy, comfortable and to the point!
Great doctor, knowledgable, thorough and patient. Would recommend.
very thorough examination, this office provided great service all around! definitely recommend coming here!
Very nice and professional .
Totally professional and wonderfully competent. I actually look forward to my annual eye exam. Findings are communicated in a clear unhurried manner.
It was very easy and comfortable. I'm coming back!
Very thorough examination both by the technician (very friendly, I forgot her name) and Dr. Engel. No wait to get in; no rush job once I was in. Highly recommended.
He's a warm and caring guy. Gets right to the heart of things/
Dr Engel is professional, thorough, and easy-going, overall a great experience.
Glad I found him! Dr. Engel is great
I think he is just wonderful.
I highly recommend him! I enjoyed going to this doctor.
Great doctor. Took time to explain and listened to all my questions.
Great guy. He makes you feel at ease and knows how to convey the message well.
Very thorough, careful exam. Spent ample time explaining condition and prognosis to me. Would highly recommend.
He was very thorough, friendly, and easy to speak with during my visit. I had already seen another doctor for this issue but left Engel's office feeling more confident in the recommendation.
Very professional and to the point.
He discovered something most doctor ignored and I'm thankful for that because I still have a chance to fix it. Thank you Dr Engel
Nice clean office. Very friendly warm staff. Would highly recommend.
My visit to Dr. Engel's office was great. His supporting team was wonderful - warm, great sense of humor, etc. - his office was pristine, and Dr. Engel himself was a lovely man. Quick, painless, but thorough visit. Would definitely recommend.
Engel is great. Seems to know what he's doing. Nice guy.
Very pleased with the service.
Well done sir! Nice guy who takes his time with patients.
Highy reccomend- great experience.
He is very thorough and explains prognosis clearly. He takes time and care in every appointment i had so far.
Dr Harry Engel is very cooperative. He received me and explained my case to me in details. He was answering my questions in details and he gave me enough time to clarify all aspect and treatment options. I have read Dr Harry C.V and really he is one of the best doctors I have ever visited . He help me in every things and I leave his clinic with full satisfaction. I recommend diabetic retino pathy patient to visit Dr Harry clinic..
Very knowledgable, efficient while still taking time to check everything.
Dr. Engel is an excellent doctor. After what I thought was going to be a routine examination, it turned that I was diagnosed with a very serious condition, which my regular eye doctor overlooked. He told me I had come to him in time, and to schedule an appointment with a Glaucoma Specialist for surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Engel.
The visit went perfectly. They even called me to let me know I could come earlier, and considering I made the appoint 10 minutes before (same day appointment) I was very impressed. Dr Engel was very professional and explained things succinctly. He also spotted and fixed my problem very quickly. Not everyone has an eyelash stuck in their eye, but out of 3 doctors, he was the only one to even spot it. Definitely recommended.
Not exactly a warm and fuzzy character. I asked him about a mark on my eyes. He didn't seem to see what I was talking about at first. So I said "You can't see it"? Then he gets this annoyed look on his face and says "I look at eyes all day". First of all, that was not a proper response to a yes or no question. Second, I didn't appreciate his tone. The other strange thing was one of his assistants. She must have asked me a million questions that had nothing to do with my eyes. Small talk is okay. But at a certain point I became convinced she was doing some sort of psychological evaluation on me. I had heard the same battery of questions once after I nearly passed out and the doctors wanted to see where my head was at before they released me. Every time I answered a question she would dig deeper, one question after the other in rapid succession. It was weird. Definitely not coming back.
It was excellent!
Dr Engel was very patient and has a pleasant demeanor. I didn't feel rushed and I was comfortable asking any questions.
Very attentive. Great staff. Listened to concerns and made great recommendations!
patient and extremely focused. spent over 30 minutes with me and I never felt rush (even though the waiting room was full) - great friendly receptionist, and dental assistant was wonderful. beautiful office and will continue to see Dr. Engel
Overall was a good experience
He was the consummate professional and was genuinely concered, and helpful, with my health concerns. Kudos to him and Zocdoc!
he is very professional and explains what may be the problem and possible solutions.
Extremely thorough and really puts your mind at ease.
Very good visit. My health problem was minor and to his credit, Dr Engel attended to it with the required care; he did not blow it up needlessly.
Great Doctor, very professional...Secretary was a total sweet heart! Thank You both
I enjoyed my first experience at Dr. Engel's office. The office was clean and welcoming and everyone was very friendly. I was seen immediately and was out and on my way back to work in just under an hour (impressive for a first time visit). Mine was probably one of the first appointments of the day (9:45a), so that may have helped to make it a swift and quick visit.
HE WAS GREAT! VERY FAST AND EFFICIENT..I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!
Dr. Engel is very professional and clear with his explanation of the conditions, timeline, expectations, etc. He is also very thorough and takes time to check everything out.
Dr. Engel was very professional and took the time to explain my condition to me in a detailed manner. He even offered up his personal cell phone number in case my issues became worse over the weekend.
Very friendly staff and doctor. Will go back.
Very professional and courteous
He was great. He spent a lot of time with me and diagnosed my condition-macular pucker. He presented the options along with the risks. Highly recommend.
He was very knowledgeable and kind -- highly recommend.
Professional. Great office. Good advice.
I thought dr.engel was very professional and quick. His pca also was great
Helpful and approachable doctor.
Very thorough exam, highly recommended.
They made feel comfortable, they were very knowledgable. Very good.
Clearly an expert, with patience and a willingness to explain things thoroughly.
Dr. Engel is extremely good.
Thorough, and so nice. Very impressed with the most up to date equipment in his office.
Great doctor, very knowledgable and through. Highly recommend.
The office is very clean, modern and spacious. Receptionist is friendly and professional. Dr. Engel took his time to examine me and answer any questions, did not feel rushed at all which is hard to find nowadays. My favorite person was Kim, she does the intake and she was friendly, warm, and professional. Overall great experience. Too bad I have 20/15 vision and don't have to go to Ophthalmologist hardly ever...just had an odd eye irritation.
Great DR great person. Top notch
Dr. Engel is a nice guy, and the exam was thorough.
Dr. Engel was fantastic! I suffered a corneal abrasion at the hands of my toddler and was released from the ER with some pain meds and antibiotic drops. Unsurprisingly, I visited Dr. Engel 2 days later in tremendous pain. He managed my pain, fixed my eye, and saw me daily (including weekends) while I healed. He is a great guy, and an exceptional doctor.
Dr. Engel was incredibly personable. He made a point of explaining the health of my eyes on his own initiative to make sure I understood--unlike many doctors I've seen.
Positive experience. Would return!
His staff was knowledgeable and helpful. The examination was thorough. I would recommend Dr Engel.
He's w great doctor.
I've been to a few eye doctors in manhattan, and Dr. Engel was definitely the best. He took his time, and was very thorough with the eye exam. I would definitely go back.
same day service, polite, concise and effective....highly recommend
Very professional, efficient, friendly office.
Was lucky to get a same-day appointment as a new patient. Dr. Engel was great and even called in my Rx immediately to a nearby drugstore. Well-run office, too.
Great guy. Very helpful. Explained everything that was going on and what I should expect. Plan to see him again.
Very professional, efficient, nice office staff
After several frustrating appointments at NY Eye and Ear, I came to Dr. Engel for a second opinion. In a matter of minutes he was able to diagnose my condition and explain it in layman's terms. Essentially, in 20 minutes he was able to do, what NY Eye and Ear was unable to do over the course of days. He really took the time to answer all of my questions and went above and beyond to make sure I had a clear understanding of my medical condition. I walked out of our appointment very satisfied. Fantastic all around experience!
Dr. was very polite,answered my questions, and let me know I could call or come back if I need any further help. Overall, I was pleased with this appointment.
Very personable and knowledgable doctor.
guy's great / extremely knowledgeable / very available
He was very nice. Asked questions. Answered questions. Explained procedures. Very personable. Lots of patients but was not rushed or delayed.
Lovely office. Great Dr. was really nice. Quick but very helpful.
Everything about visit was great - from ease of making appointment to efficient no wait appointment and clear explaination about opthalmologic issue. I am very happy.
Very nice guy...i went to him for glasses/contacts though and he seems not to do many of these types of visits. Much more a surgeon.
Staff were lovely office was new bright and efficient Dr. was wonderful calming and pleaseant but professional
Pleasant front desk experience. Doctor was attentive, informative, and I think he helped me. (Too late to know for sure.) I intend for him to be my regular ophthalmologist now.
Took his time, very personable. I recommend highly.
Nice guy. He saw me right away. No waiting or BS. Knows his stuff.
Really personable, yet still very professional....nice guy, will definitely be using him as my regular eye doctor. Also is very fast and thorough while still making it as comfortable as possible.
he was very laid back and relaxed and put me at ease
Dr. Engel was very professional, informative and the visit was a pleasure. I would highly, highly recommend him.
Very calm and friendly. Made sure everything was answered before I left the office
He didn't really diagnose my issue, nor did he prescribe any medication or advise. Also I was on time for my appointment and he still took a patient that was late for her appointment before me. I landed up waiting 1/2 hour.
very experienced doctor , he knows what he is doing
Unless you have a serious eye illness don't go to him. He let me know he was a surgeon and really didn't like wasting time with my problem, all thought he did see me
I was very pleased with the whole staff as well as with Doctor Engel. The examination was thorough and reassuring.
Wow... I saw this doctor and both him and his staff made me feel so welcome and comfortable...He is very knowledgable and I would most certainly recommmend him to any and everyone... Thanks Alicia Almorales
he was nice, caring and his staff were a pleasure to deal with.
Very thorough, very personable
