Dr. Colavito is absolutely wonderful and their staff are efficient and nice. It is difficult to find a great doctor where his team are professional as well. Special mention to her front desk assistance who offered me breastfeed my baby in a private room. Very kind and humane.

Jennifer and her staff are so personal and thorough. She corrected a perscription that my previous optometrist missed and offered valuable information about contact lense cleaning and storage that I found tremendously helpful. They're also one of the only offices that take my type of insurance. Being that I live in BK and work in lower Manhattan meant I had to travel farther than I prefer, but after my first appointment I'm more than willing to do it again. It's worth it for the right doctor.

Excellent! She took great care and did a thorough examination. When calling my insurance for contact lenses they approved special contacts. But she decided to call them back and be sure that they covered the cost and that I don't end up with a bill. It was a very satisfying experience.

I made an appointment with this doctor because she accepts my insurance, but I was told that I had to pay because my insurance doesn't cover an eye exam for prescription glasses, but that it only covers the "health of the eye exam". I also paid the co payment and they sent me a letter asking me to pay gain. The doctor didn't provide all the information necessary in my prescription in order to purchase glasses elsewhere, so I need to get another exam. Will not be going back, waste of money!

I have only been here once, but it seems to be a well-run office. Dr. Colavito is pleasant to deal with. She explains everything she is doing. She seemed a little hurried, but that was not too surprising for a busy doctor. I do not think it affected the quality of the check up. I spent about 10 minutes in the examination room before the first part of the exam, and again after the dilation has set in, which is a little long, but not overly so. I will go there for the next check-up.

She was nice and she answered me all my questions. By the contrary, the office assistance was rude in the moment to talk about the recipe&insurance, really rude, and looked that she does not care about the patients. It's a shame that nice doctors works with this kind people.

She is by far the most knowledgeable eye doctor I have seen in my 20 years of poor vision, plus she is caring and kind. She doesn't just check-the-box like other eye doctors. Looking forward to next year's visit!

I went in for a routine yearly eye exam and was treated well by Dr. Colavito and her staff, who seem very knowledgeable in their field. Dr. Colavito appeared to be thorough and covered plenty of ground in a brief amount of time. She even spotted something in my exam that she recommended I get checked even though it wasn't directly related to my vision or eye health. One thing to note is that contact lens fittings aren't covered by insurance, at least not in their practice, so you will need to pay for that out of pocket.
