Verified Patient Reviews
The entire staff was incredibly professional and polite, great experience!
She was really kind and smart. She tweeted my prescription. The office is extremely professional. There was no wait. I would recommend her.
She is excellent I am very happy with Dr Colovito's service's I will recommend her to anyone
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.
Staff was helpful in answering questions about insurance. Dr. Colavito was friendly and patient with any questions I had.
Dr. Colavito was very knowledgeable in the subject matter during my eye consultation. Furthermore, she was extremely patient and took the time to answer all my questions.
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.
Very impressive office, equipment, and staff. Would recommend!
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 found Dr. Colavito to be thorough, patient, knowledgeable, progressive and highly engaging. She answered all my questions and offered a range of options regarding both treatment and lenses that flexibility as well as consideration for individual preferences. My initial impression of Dr . Colavito and her office staff is exceedingly favorable and I am looking forward to my follow-up visit.
Never have a problem in this office....
Dr. Colavito was very kind and patient, and walked me through all of my contact options, explaining the benefits and drawbacks of each contact. In the end, I was very satisfied with my visit, and would recommend Dr. Colavito to anyone looking for an eye doctor that they can rely on.
She is great doctor, but their staff is absolutely terrible. I am planning no come back for their staff, rude and unprofessional.
Jennifer (refreshingly she introduced herself with her first name) was wonderful. Thorough exam, explained every part of the exam, answered all of my questions unhurriedly, and gave very practical advice. Will definitely refer to her and look forward to returning.
She was very friendly, and explained everything to me.
Amazing experience! Dr. Colavito put me immediately at ease. Would highly recommend.
Very caring and knowledgeable doctor. Highly recommend.
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.
Dr. Colavito was very thorough and friendly. The front desk staff was efficient.
Awesome, awesome office! Wonderful and friendly doctors.
The only problem I had was the wait time. Once I mentioned I had to get back to the office, they were quick and efficient. Jennifer went
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.
Great doc. Very informative and responsive. Would highly recommend Dr.
Jennifer was very kind and professional, I have been looking for a doctor like her a long time. I am not native speaker but in despite of this she was patient with me and my questions, above all because. The staff was correct but the best part of my visit was her.
Dr. Colavito has a great demeanor and is super friendly. Very knowledgeable and gave me a thorough exam. Made me feel welcome and comfortable as a new patient.
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!
Dr. Colavito was personable, knowledgeable, quick and super friendly. She exceeded all expectations and I will definitely be recommending her to all my family and friends. Thank you, Dr. Colavito for an amazing visit!
Great doctor, but she overbooked her appointments. I will go back, but will expect to wait about an hour for the process.
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.
Fantastic, she was very nice and explained everything she was doing. Highly recommend her.
Re: Dr. Colavito: Very positive experience--the best! The office personnel are also first rate.
Dr. Colavito was extremely thorough and knowledgeable. She spent a lot of time and reviewed all of the options available during the appointment. The staff was also lovely in assisting her during my appointment. I would highly recommend the practice.
She was efficient but not rushed and made sure that my needs were met. Definitely recommend!
Dr. Colavito was great! Very efficient, but not rushed. She recommended a new brand of contact lenses and solution and sent me home with a bag full of free solution samples.
