This experience was a bit odd. The doctor didn't arrive to the office until 30 minutes after my scheduled appointment, and the receptionists spent more time arguing with each other about what paperwork I was supposed to fill out than theydid explaining it to me. I had to ask one of them to stop yelling so I could hear the other when I had a question about my benefits. The doctor was nice enough but all in all it was a pretty stressful environment.

Definitely was a great visit. Although I’m still waiting on the call for my glasses prescription to be filled and ready lol. Dr Kim was definitely a great one. I’m very sensitive about things touching my eyes and he made sureto do his best to keep me comfortable. The staff was friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend Dr Kim. And I’m gonna be back as a regular.

Great appointment the two guys that work there are awesome and where very patient with my kids who took forever to pick out glasses and they where the last appointment. Especially the tall one. Dr was very informative as ussually. Andi will contine to send anyone i can to them. Female there is still way past professional and i am upset that she did not even measure for my husband glasses. But as its only one employee that you have to look out for Dr Kim is highly recommended.

Office was very clean and the staff were very kind. I waited for less than 5 minutes to see the doctor (I was the only one in the waiting room) and the visit lasted for around 35 minutes. The doctor wasvery thourough in checking my condition and I left feeling like I was actually taken care of. I would 100% recommend this doctor to friends and family.

Dr is short and to the point with all the information that you need. The 2 guys that work there are excellent. I have never had a problem until the female staff was hired and they are both rude and dontactually listen to you. I will continue to go. And reccomend all my friends and family just be prepared for the female staff.

Great visit, the staff was super nice and patient. I’m the worst with any sort of doctor and eye doctors are no different. Dr. Kim was great at answering all the questions I had and made getting my prescription as well as comfortable contacts an easy experience. Would definitely recommend!

Excellent service. Not pushy at all, like 99% of other practices. They have a full selection of eyeglasses from all the major brands, too. Nice friendly vibes, and a chill aesthetic. Thanks Dr. Kim!

Dr Kim is great. The whole staff are great and you barely feel like you’re at the doctor. Run by and for millennials in a very stress free environment. Wish more places were this low key. And he takes appointments onthe weekend for us 9-5ers who have trouble squeezing in weekday healthcare.

Dr. Kim was very thorough in the exam. He worked with me to pick out a new pair of glasses that was economical and covered by my insurance. The space is pretty cool too. I wouldn't buy 3D printed glasses butI thought the concept was pretty interesting. The location was great as I live in Brooklyn and booking an appointment was easy. The glasses were ready when he said they would be. Unlike a lot of doctors these days I actually saw Dr. Kim directly and he performed the exam. Sad that so few doctors these days do much doctoring, but luckily Dr. Kim is the real deal and he will remain my go to for eye care from now on.

This appointment made me uneasy. I didn’t feel that the staff was attentive nor professional. During my eye exam, the assistant constantly left my examination to have side conversations. Not much was explained properly. The visit didn’t feellike a doctor visit at all with all the arguments and shouting. I was there for more than two hours for a regular eye exam. I don’t think this is normal ...
