Dr Kornstein was friendly, professional, attentive, and efficient. He shares an office with Skin Bar, which is small but clean. The hallway looks a uninviting but one shouldn't judge a book by its cover.

I arrived at the office early, got done with the new-patient paperwork 10 or 15 minutes before the scheduled appoint. Doctor saw me as soon as I was finished. Addressed all my concerns, very helpful, friendly, etc. Would absolutely return if I need an ophthalmologist in the future.

Dr Kornstein is a pleasant man and as far as I can judge a very professional physician. His office is a little cramped as he shares a space with another company. But this is Manhattan and he accepts my insurance. Overall a good experience.

I enjoyed my visit with doctor Kornstein, the ladies at the front were very pleasant and the exam itself was very thorough. He took his time in conducting all the required tests, explain my condition and the potential corrective solutions. This was my first visit, but I will be returning to him for my yearly checkup My only con is that it was had to find the office as zoc doc list him as being in suite 501 which is non existent. It took me a while to realize that his office was inside of a bigger office inside of suite 500

Dr Kornstein was professional yet warm and caring. He did a great job diagnosing my problem and prescribing medication to make me feel better. The receptionist was a bit discourteous. She waved her hand dismiss-ably at me when I refused to have my photo taken for their file of me.

On a first time visit for an eye exam and new prescription, Dr. Kornstein appeared to be very competent and had good bedside manner. He did not recommend any additional procedures. He gave me the name of an eyeglass store around the corner only when pressed for a recommendation. I liked him.

Had an excellent eye appointment today! Was very thorough, but also didn't waste my time. If you've been going to eye doctors for as many years as I have you can definitely appreciate that. He also didn't push me on getting Lasik, which I greatly appreciate as that is an issue I've had with doctors in the past.

I've been seeing Dr. Kornstein for three or four years now and he really is the best. The office has changed a bit in the city, since he's only there part time, so even though the receptionist in the office wasn't trained in insurance questions, his main office in white plains called me the next day to follow up. Easy peasy!

Dr. Kornstein did a great job explaining things to me me and is very personable. He gave me practical advice and was sensitive to my phobia about having my eyes touched. He was gentle and did a great job helping me. The office staff was great too they offered me water or cucumber water. It's a beautiful waiting room to in the nyc office. Dr. Kornstein and his staff made me very comfortable. I plan to continue seeing him!
