Very reassuring and easy to talk to. I came in with a small growth on my eye. Dr. Rosenblum saw me fairly quickly, looked it over, then scheduled a surgery in two weeks time to remove it. Very efficient.

I only saw Dr. Rosenblum for 3 seconds when he literally just introduced himself. I saw a DO the rest of the time. The whole visit took 2.5 hours between waiting around for various people to get their act together. Therewas also confusion about which insurance they took, and it seems that they don't actually accept what zocdoc says they do.

Waited 45 minutes for the tech and another 45 minutes for the doctor. Be careful of extra charge for refraction exam - this is standard with most insurance plans and should not be paid for out of pocket. Overall, I wouldn’tgo back here. Tech was nice but doctor seemed inattentive to patients. Wait time was unacceptably long.

With a family history of eye disease and moving around a lot, I've seen a lot of ophthalmologists and understand there's a variety of knowledge about less common eye diseases. Dr. Rosenblum showed he has significant experience with all varietyof eye problems and is up to date on the most recent research around treatment and detection. I appreciated that Dr. Rosenblum explained to me what and how the tests were and spent time to explain my results to me. He was also very honest about the deficiencies of some of the testing methods.

DO NOT GO HERE. I was there for two and a half hours for an annual eye exam, and it was only 15 minutes of actual examination time. Literally everyone in the waiting room was complaining that this happens every time.The office clearly overbooks appointments and doesn’t care about making patients wait for an egregious amount of time.

It was horrible waited an hour only to not be seen by the doctor. First they scheduled it for the wrong office then when finally being seen told my insurance health first is only good for a medical examine that doesnot include a prescription exam or eyeglass prescription for that i would have to use my vision insurancd davis which they do not accept. I shouldve known better they had horrible reviews on google

Dr. Rosenblum and Dr. Chan were very personable and attentive. However, they only prescribed medicated drops for my eye problem, when I insisted it that it seemed to be part of a larger infection that was beginning to move through mybody. Two days later I was back in their office as the infection had spread to my other eye and was making its way through my sinuses. The doctor who saw me was not able to prescribe an oral antibiotic and suggested that I go to my primary care physician or urgent care. This should have been told to me over the phone when I requested this 2nd emergency appointment. It would have saved me an inconvenient trip to Dr. Rosenblum's office. In Dr. Rosenblum's favor I was able to get this 2nd appointment as a result of being there two days earlier with worsening condition. The front office staff was very thorough. A young woman of color was most especially helpful on both occasions with attention to detail, streamlining the ordering of my eye drop medication to my pharmacy, as well as going about her work with a most pleasant smile and joy. On the 2nd visit she was also very helpful in securing an urgent care physician in the nearby vicinity. A lovely, efficient, knowledgeable person who is a large asset to this practice.

Very old medical equipment, half of which appears broken. The wait time was more then an hour. Doctor is running between patients, so I was afraid that he could mix up the results or treatments. No, I will avoid this doctoras there more caring doctors and more advanced technology they use then in his office.

Dr. Rosenblum is a friendly and experienced opthemeologist. I greatly appreciate his insight. However, there is a lot to be desired for his office's staff. I came away from a chaotic and disorganized appointment that took 2 hours. The staffkept switching me into different rooms. One of the rooms had staff members coming in and out of the room. The staff did not listen to my input and instead focused on numbers and statistics (leaving me feeling like a headcount rather than a person) which led them to believe a conclusion which I tried to prevent in the first place. If they listened to me in the first place, I believe I could have gotten out half an hour early. Additionally, the front desk staff was not very friendly and were doing many other things leaving me standing there not knowing if I could leave or whether I had to pay. I want to stress that I believe Dr. Rosenblum is a phenomenal opthemologist. However, his practice needs To be revamped.

The amount of time I was kept waiting was inexcusable, but he tried to excuse it as "a mix-up at the front desk". If true, he needs better staff. If not, he needs to manage his practice better. I would not go back.

I waited for 1,30h just to have a prescription for my lenses. The doctors who saw me they were both very nice. I could not judge them on how knowledgeable and professional they really are, as I did not go fora serious issue. I am sorry but they should really check on their reception staff. Unforgivable. Everybody has a life and a job. Rudeness.

This review is not based on the service provided by the Doctor, but by the service provided by the staff. I called 24 hours in advance to confirm that everything was set regarding my health insurance for the appointment I scheduled.After receiving the thumbs up I'm extremely frustrated that upon entering the facility they decide to inform me that I will need to pay out of pocket as my insurance does in fact not cover the exam I needed. Such a waste of time and very disappointed in the quality of service I just received from this office. Never coming here again.

Apparently the office expects it's patients to adher to some sort of religious dress code that they do not express before your arrival. The Doctor made an incredibly rude and condescending comment to me about the "approriateness" of my outfit, when it was 90 degrees outside. Will not be returning.
