I started going to Dr. Nachum 17 years ago when I worked in the neighborhood, and now I still come in to see him from Long Island, just because I feel very secure with his professional knowledge and how he's treatedme over the years. He's thorough, not rushed, clearly explains results and discusses issues with me, and seems up-to-date in his field.

Great doctor, but awful front desk staff - rude, unprofessional with terrible interpersonal/communication skills - and that's the only reason I stopped going and won't return.

Dr. Nachum was attentive and thorough. He politely walked through the examination and explained what was being shown in the images they took. The exam was not rushed at all. The staff was also very patient and polite. I take along time to decide on glasses and they did not rush me at all. Will definitely return here for my next eye appt!

Needed a new eye doctor when I moved to NY and found Dr. Nachum through ZocDoc. My appointment with Dr. Nachum was great. I was greeted and seen promptly, the exam was comfortable but thorough, and he took care to discussevery relevant issue and answer every question I had. 10/10 would recommend, will be keeping Dr. Nachum as my regular eye doctor as long as I'm in New York.

Loved Dr Jacob Nachum, OD, but my appointment started 30 mins late - would have preferred a phone call to say he was running late. However, will go back to him for my yearly appointment as he himself was lovely and very professional and friendly.

Although Dr. Nachum has been communicative and polite, something comes off harshly during appointments which is undesirable. Office is nice too but staff can be rude depending on the day and staff member. Generally good at the service provided, just not keen on the temperment. Ready for a change.

It felt more like he was a rep for this new eye drop brand than a doctor i could trust. I just went in there to get a new prescription for my contacts and he prescribed me eye drops that ihad to use twice a day, based on a casual comment i had made about my eyes sometimes being dry when i wear contacts. When i went in again and said that the eye drops didn't make a difference and that i did not want to use expensive prescription eye drops indefinitely, he prescribed me a different kind of eye drops to use until i could revert back to the original eye drops (when he said they would be more effective). Not once did he even check to see if the contacts he handed me fit properly in my eye or if the prescription he gave me actually fit in practice. He also seemed annoyed with me whenever i asked questions or expressed a concern.
