This was probably the best pre-examination interview I have had with any doctor. Whereas it is now the norm for doctors to hurry through one or two cursory questions, Dr. Magramm led me through a very thoughtful series of questions with no hint of hurry, soliciting any scraps of info that might be useful for diagnosis. She then proceeded through an equally careful examination. The overall process and her excellent bedside manner left me feeling confident in her conclusions and recommendations. Highly recommended.
Great doctor terribly long wait. It puts you in-between a rock and a hard place becuase you'll get the care you need with a caring professional but that wait is a killer especially if you need to be somewhere or are taking your lunch break to handle you ailments.
I booked an appointment day of and receptionist called me to confirm and also 'see if I wanted to come 30 or 60 minutes later' than my scheduled time. I said that if things were running over I would do that, else I'd come at the appointed time. She assured me things were not running over and my appointed time was fine. I waited for an hour and 15 minutes. Not once did anyone give me an update nor was there any hint of an apology or regret that I was kept waiting. In fact, the SECOND time I asked for an updare (whcih was 20 min. after my forst ask, and over an hour of waiting) I was given a very condescending attitude and explained to me like I was a child that 'sometimes the doctor's visits run over'. Even more frustrating was that a woman came in while I was waiting who was escorted in to see the doctor before me. When I asked about it, I was told that 'that's the way we do things around here'. No idea what that means Finally - these ppl charged me when I first arrived. I should have known better and should have waited until after I saw the doctor. Doctor was fine - she did an inspection and got me a treatment (had a very minor infection) but did not acknowledge that she had kept me waiting for over an hour or apologize.. at all. I would NEVER go here. EVER. The way I was treated was inexcusable and unprofessional.
Wonderful experience--Dr. Magramm was so kind, helpful, and thorough; she patiently listened to my many questions! I highly recommend her!
Dr Magramm was amazing with my 9month old. She took one look at her and was able to diagnose what I suspected being blocked tear ducts. She thoroughly checked my daughter and explained everything in normal English, not dr jargon. I went in feeling rather apprehensive and unsure about what to expect from dr Magramm but left feeling well informed and my baby well cared for in a kind, sweet manner. She was very concerned to have my baby be as comfortable and calm as possible. I would highly recommend her and her kind office team.
The two ladies at the front desk were very rude and not friendly. They did not respect the time of my appointment and let a patient that had an appointment after me be treated before me. When I asked for the mistake to be corrected, I was told that I had to wait because I had made my appointment via zocdoc. In the end, I had to wait more than 2 hours to be seen by the doctor, as she was very behind on her schedule. Dr. Magramm was professional and thorough but the experience overall is not recommendable.
The doctor is very thorough and I highly recommend. However, do yourself a favor and call the office before you show up for your appointment. Otherwise you could be waiting for hours. (I waited for 2.5 hours)
Dr. Magramm was the most thorough opthamologist I have been to. She is very professional, polite and courteous.
Seems very thorough and knows what she's doing. Not a lot of pleasantries so felt a bit tense at times, but overall very professional.
Dr. Magramm gave an extremely thorough exam.
There were two ladies at the reception desk whose behavior was very rude and not friendly. They could not give me an itemized receipt that day so I had to come back just to pick up my receipt. I asked them to email my paper, they said they don't do emails. I had to call three times before they said my paper is ready for pick up. The whole experience was not good. I will not go there ever
Dr. Magramm is very nice and efficient! Highly recommend!
I arrived a couple of minutes late (12), but I did call to warn them. That being said, I don't know if that warranted the 45 minute wait. In addition, the waiting room was small and had two receptionists who were constantly bickering and complaining.The actual appointment was alright, but she didn't seem very personable. The problem ended up being that I had the wrong lens prescription and wore my contacts too long. I asked for a few days of contacts and offered to pay while I waiting for ordering new ones. Dr. Magramm gave me three contact lenses and told me she couldn't give me four. What am I going to do with the third one?! I don't have a third eye. When I inquired about a fourth, she snickered and said that I would survive. Very helpful. Needless to say, I will not be back.
I'm so glad that I was able to find Dr. Magramm on zocdoc! Just saw her today, and she's wonderful! Highly recommend. She asks enough questions and gives as much explanation. She may not be overly talkative, but didn't think she was curt, like some others wrote. My overall experience was very positive. The wait was about 5-10 minutes, but the time was spent in filling out paperwork, so that was fine. Be sure to send your info via zocdoc in advance, so you can speed up the process when you're actually there.
Very straightforward, easy, and professional. Solved my eye problem right away.
Great staff, very polite and friendly. Doctor is very professional, answered all my questions. Doctor was very careful and patience. Very clean environment. I would recommend this doctor very highly.
She is very sweet and efficient. Great combo.
Excellent - she was knowledgable and to the point
Dr. Magraam is an excellent ophthalmologist. She gives a very thorough and complete eye exam. If you request an explanation regarding the examination or findings she will provide an answer. If you are looking for a "warm and cuddly" experience with your eye doctor, Dr. M may not be the one for you. But, if you want someone with outstanding knowledge and skill in ophthalmology,this is where you should book your appointment.
Dr Magramm is a quiet old school professional. She is thorough and takes her time with all procedures.
Knows her stuff but is highly judgmental and with an awful, cold bedside manner. I am never coming back.
Professional, competent and courteous. Excellent overall impression
My visit with Dr. Magramm was great! Dr. Magramm is very thorough and is concerned about your eyes. She takes her time, explains what she is doing and after the exam, she states her recommendations and schedules you for a follow-up visit. Her office staff is great as well. Very welcoming!
Visit was brief and professional, though I found the doctor to be curt as was her staff. I had to cancel my followup (was hit with an unexpected fee) and was told they would follow up to reschedule and I never heard back. I was unable to get rescheduled, and will be switch to a different doctor for the follow up.
Explained clearly what my daughter's eye condition was. However, recommended surgery without any discussion / mention of alternative forms of treatment.
Was on time and answered my questions.
Dr. Irene was very nice and the experience was great overall.
She's vety professional and knowledgeable. She's not too warm and friendly, but she knows her stuff.
Dr Magramm was very knowledgable and took the time to explain everything in detail to me. I left having a good understanding of my medical situation. I did not feel rushed at all and appreciated the care she took.
I am so disappointed in this practice. I booked Dr Magramm after reading the reviews online and thought it would be an easy great appointment... I was wrong. She wouldn't explain anything she was doing, when I asked, she didn't reply or would shrug and say "you're fine". And I found the general experience to be aggressive. I think that this is a specialty practice - some of the patients had severe issues - for a general eye practice, look somewhere else.
She is very patient. I had not been to the doctor in many years and the care and service provided by the doctor and her team made my wait worthwhile. Kudos!!
Excellent doctor. Highly professional.
Excellent visit and excellent administration as well. The results of the eye surgery were great.
very sweat, i felt very comfortable.
Dr Magramm is highly competent, pleasant and professional. I will gladly return to her for any future eye care needs.
Great experience, I was seen on time, and she was a wonderful Dr. very thorough and answered any questions and concerns I had. I will be returning for my annual check-up.
Dr. Magramm not only upholds the highest standards of excellence, she also has a calm, confident and very gentle way that takes away any anxieties you might have about the eye exam process. Dr. Magramm is very thorough and does not rush through your appointment. You feel well cared for and benefit from her consummate professionalism.
I was referred to Dr. Magramm by my neurologist to get some testing done for some eye pain. She was a little quieter and more "cold shoulder" than I might have liked, but she was incredibly smart. The best part of the visit was after she'd finished the exam and doing all the various tests. She gave me a very straightforward explanation, made her best educated guesses, and gave me a detailed action plan for how to move forward. Since this appointment was a referral for an existing problem, I was extremely pleased that she gave me some firm answers and next steps rather than saying "let's see you back in a month and see how you're doing," as other doctors have done. She answered my questions and spoke to me like an adult, and she trusted that I knew my own body, which I also appreciated.
Dr. Magramm was very thorough, very at attentive to my child's eye care need. She is a wonderful doctor and I would highly recommend it .
A fully professonal Opthalmalogist. I went with strabismus and she correctly identified my problem after number of test. I will follow her up for my eye problem in future.
Fantastic. Extremely thorough, and explored every option as to why I wasn't seeing clearly. Strongly encouraged follow up showing she cared. Would definitely recommend!
It was perfect!
As always,Dr. Magramm was a consummate professional. More thorough than any other ophthalmologist; efficient, gracious and unhurried in her manner and approach. The patient feels like a person not just a capitation.
wasn't terrible but wasn't impressed, will find another eye doctor
highly professional, extremely clear, kind manner
Very professional and competent doctor. Clear explanations.
I was very pleased with my visit with Dr.Magramm
She is a very nice doctor very thorough. I injured my eye playing sports and I wanted to insure nothing had been seriously injured. I would highly recommend her to a friend
She identified and fixed the problem right away. I like her bedside manner and professionalism. I would totally recommend her to any one I know.
Dr Magramm is a no nonsense and thorough professional. I do like that she does every exam (from the simplest eyewear check to the thorough eye exam) herself.
Dr,Irene was great,i will go to see her again
This doctor seems to carry about my interests
Dr. Irene is very professional, spends time with patients and gives better treatment.
I met with Dr. Magramm within ten minutes of walking into the office. She was very professional and thorough. She gave me free samples and a coupon, as well.
she was really warm, and friendly. well worth my visit.
Irene was very attentive and knowledgeable. She did a very thorough exam. The only drawback was that her office does not take credit cards, so come prepared with cash or personal check.
I found my eye doctor! I had to wait a little longer than usual but the wait was def worth it!
I like Dr. Magramm. She did a thorough evaluation of my eyes.
Dr. Magrammm took her time examining my eyes and had excellent bedside manner.
She's very thorough and excellent!
Very friendly and professional; highly recommended!
Dr Magramm is extremely patient, kind and very thorough. She takes the time to explain everything, is very courteous and does not rush through the exam. I had my near/far vision, intraocular pressure, convergence sufficiency etc. checked in a 30 minute session with Dr Magramm. The office is a whole different story! It is something out of a movie - peeling walls, dirty carpets, handwritten signs, cash only copayments (which is sprung on you 1s before your appointment, so you are late by the time you run out to get cash from an ATM, despite getting there a half hour before the time!!)
Dr. Magramm took her time with me and diagnosed my problem and gave me treatment immediately. she explained what to do moving forward. I would highly recommend her to other patients!
Great doctor, knowledgeable, and very friendly !!
I have had unpleasant eye doctors previously, and it was a big relief to visit Dr. Magramm. I was really pleased with her and found her to be very kind, gentle and I was very comfortable with her. Will definitely continue seeing her.
