Waited for a long time and called me back again and again, and I have to pay expensive co-pays every timewhich she doesn't really care. Eventually after three visits, she came to the conclusion - I just need to use more artificial tears, which lead me to think do you really need to see me three times to get there?

Dr. Steinberg is terrific - a smart, thoughtful, and funny person, and an outstanding doctor. I made a last-minute appointment because I was running low on contact lenses and they fit me in, plus gave me 5 days of sample lenses. Her staff is helpful and courteous.

The doctor herself was professional but the wait time was unacceptable. I had an original appointment and an extraordinarily brief follow up and waited for over an hour both times. There are always situations which throw schedules off, butI won't be back to sit and wait for an hour a third time. The office also took several hours to call in an eyedrop prescription. If they can't be bothered, they should just give you the physical prescription. I was unimpressed with the office staff.

Office staff are kind and professional. Wait time is minimal; I was there for a standard eye exam and was in and out of the waiting room a few times in between different parts of the exam. Dr. Steinberg is great.She is very friendly, personable, and down to earth. She immediately puts you at ease, explains everything, and makes sure to ask if you have any questions throughout the exam. She was very thorough and I left feeling very confident about my eyes!

Dr Steinberg was wonderful. I came in with a rather concerning condition and she was very thorough, took plenty of time to listen to me and fully understand the issue, then was proactive about my treatment plan. I feel very comfortablewith my condition and treatment plan after seeing her. I had come to her to get a 2nd opinion, but after seeing her, I will switch to her for my entire treatment. She made me comfortable because she listened fully to my concerns and issues and took plenty of time speaking with me about our plan forward. I highly recommend her!

The office (staff and physical décor) is clean and pleasant and they keepthings rolling along at a snappy pace.

This office has a lot of patients rotating at once. I was there for an hour and 45 minutes for routine care and check up. I was told by the receptionist to plan on two hours (!) max for any appointment.I spent most of the time waiting in the waiting room. I was in and out of the exam room 3x.

Dr. Steinberg is excellent! I am thankful for incredible discomfort that i had in my eye, because as a result i visited Dr. Steinberg, who removed a long eyelash from my eye with great precision and professional care. Dr. Steinberg alsotook the time to explain to me how such sensations affect the entire being, unlike injuries elsewhere, such as minor injuries to the hand or arm. Dr. Steinberg also took the chance to test my general eye health-- useful to me as one of my parents had glaucoma, the other has makular degeneration. Thanks to Dr. Steinberg's careful testing, i have peace of mind knowing that i do not have any indications of either malady. I am writing this note as my wife just asked me to provide for her the name and address of the excellent ophthalmologist i visited on Tuesday: Dr. Hilla Steinberg 179 West 79th street, suite 6 Her Staff is also excellent.

I've been seeing Dr. Steinberg since I moved nearby. Her staff is friendly and wait time is minimal. I appreciate how efficiently things run in her office and that she doesn't try to up-sell (she knows I have glasses that Irarely wear, so she doesn't try to convince me to get new lenses even though my prescription has changed slightly).

Very nice and professional doctor and assistant, but rude receptionist and got bamboozled at the end Went in to see about a possible eye infection and wound up at 375 out of pocket 375 for a followup contact fitting + non-coveredrefraction test which is 3 TIMES rate at another doc for my far more thorough initial fitting, Would go back for medical visit, but if all you need is a prescription STAY AWAY. UPDATE: When calling back for clarification I was immediately attacked by the receptionist and made to feel like an idiot. Due to that I would never go back for anything.
