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 discuss every 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.

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 i had 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.

I've been going to Dr. Nachum for at least 20 years and he has taken good care of my eyes and vision. He's always very thorough in his exam, forthcoming in answering my Qs, and skilled at refraction -- better than the opthmologist I used to see.

I wish I would of been seen at my appointment time since I was on my lunch break, but nonetheless the appointment was quick and thorough so it worked out. Front staff is friendly, well the one who checked me in at least. The one that checked me out picked up a call in the midst of me checking out, thought that was rude.Dr. Nachum was friendly and polite.

He is a great doctor. But the wait time was really bad. Two people had been booked for 3:30, which was my appointment time. The person before me was only seen at 3:40, so I didn't get seen before 4pm. On a working day,that's a pretty long wait. Otherwise the doctor was really great! He was very helpful and did a thorough job of checking my eyes. I definitely will be going back, but hopefully with a shorter wait time.

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.

Had a longer than expected wait and then felt rushed through the appointment. The office staff did not seem very professional and all my follow up phone calls to order contact lenses were frustrating. They kept putting me on hold and not taking the time to listen and respond to my questions. I would highly recommend looking for a different office based on my experience.
