He and his staff were all professional and kind. The wait time, however, was terrible. I arrived 15 minutes early to do my paperwork, and did not see the technician until 45 minutes after my appointment time.

I accidentally scratched my cornea and needed to see an ophthalmologist. I searched on ZocDoc and saw that he had an opening so I made the appointment. I was so pleased with Dr. Haberman's professional manner. I will be bringing my records to his office. Highly recommend.

While Dr. Haberman's, himself, was quite professional and pleasant...beware of office staff! They will threaten to send your bill to collection even if the claim is still being re-processed through your insurance.

Since I made the reservation on zocdoc: cash service or pay a 2 dollar fee if card used should be mentioned somewhere. The staff was professional and approachable. I saw a patient get very nasty with the staff and their responsewas so mature. The ophthalmologist is so nice and approachable. He made me feel so comfortable. The office is clean. It would be great if they got updated machines but I am sure they are expensive and the ones they have work just fine

This is a very busy office! In order to see well into your eye, you are prepped very soon after checking in by his staff, then sent to wait for the doctor. The second wait can be a little longer but,as I mentioned, this is a very busy office. I can see that Dr. Haberman, though friendly & seemingly easy-going, holds his staff accountable for the way they deal with his patients, & as such the staff can be a little abrupt but they are well-meaning. Happy that I found him to test & treat my eyes.

I had an emergency eye situation and he was the only one available that day. It turns out appointment times are useless since you don't really get to be seen by the doctor not until 2 hrs later. He was veryknowledgeable thought but his office staff could use more training in customer service.

Whole visit took 35 minutes from exam to picking out my frames. Was taken on time and everyone was nice and friendly . Only bad thing about visit is that I filled out all paperwork online through Zoc Doc and theytexted me before appt that it was sent to dr's office but when I got there they made me fill out again because they said they don't download or use what Zoc Doc sends, so I wasted my time filling out online, even though my husband went two months before and they used his,

The wait time was pretty long, it's a busy office. Make sure that you bring cash for your copay. If you need to put it on a credit card, there is a minimum as well as a fee. The office wasbrutally hot. The doctor was nice enough, but the visit was so brief. The frames selection was meh. I don't think I'll be back. They also claim to not have access to the forms you fill out here, so you have to redo them.

Receptionist indicated forms are not transfered to them. Doing form was a waste of time via online when you have to repeat them all over again. Doing forms at the office, did not have all information to complete the forms atthe office. It was no fault to the doctors office.
