The check in process was seamless. The reception had already printed my check in docs from ZocDoc. I just had to review and sign some papers. Overall 5/5 there. Then I had to meet the tech who did some initial checkup, readings etc. she was super nice and polite. She answered all our concerns etc. 5/5 here too. Post the tech, met the doctor. He carefully listened to the issue I had been experiencing for past 6 days causing issues in one of my eyes. After asking some more basic questions (about my profession, and symptoms) - he quickly pulled out his microscope. He went through both eyes and goes “this is not something we see everyday” and my heart sank. But right away he goes the issue you’ve been experiencing has to do with something so rare that’s it’s easy to miss. He quickly removed something foreign from my eye. He even suggested that he’s only seen this maybe 3-4 times in his life before and would be a good teaching for his residents. 5/5 here too. Overall, he made me full good and answered all my concerns.

Found Dr. Nightingale on ZocDoc after moving to NYC so wasn't sure what to expect my first visit (needed to see if my glasses were still the right prescription or if they needed updating). My visit was great - Dr. Nightingale was efficient, clear, and generous. The whole staff was great and it was a pleasant office. Definitely going to go back.

I started seeing Dr Nightingale when I decided to get corrective eye surgery. I wasn't a candidate for Lasik, so instead I got PRK. Long story short - everything went great and I couldn't be happier. I am so glad I chose Dr Nightingale to perform this procedure. In a crazy busy city like NYC, it's hard to find a doctor who really takes time to make sure the patients feel comfortable and taken care of (as opposed to rushing you out the door after having dedicated just 5 min of their packed schedule). Well, Dr Nightingale is one of those doctors in danger of extinction: He is thoughtful, professional yet personable, kind, attentive, thorough and with a sense of humor. And his staff is equally amazing!

I easily scheduled my appointment using ZocDoc. I included a note for the doctor regarding the issue I was having finding the proper prescription for my gas permeable contact lenses. I called the office in the morning the day of my appointment to confirm this office could fit me for gas permeable contact lenses and glasses during my appointment later that day. I was told yes only to find when I met with the Doctor later that day that they do not prescribe rigid gas permeables. The doctor was helpful in providing a referral but the overall experience was quite negative as I thought I had confirmed that morning that I would be able to start working on a new prescription.
