Dr. Slusky and her team were absolutely wonderful. They were ready for me as soon as I walked in the door and there was no wait time in between different parts of the appointment. Dr. Slusky explained everything she was doing during the exam and helped me understand more about my eye health and eye care. I wanted to choose new frames, and the team was very patient while I tried on a lot of them; and they were knowledgeable about fit and guided me to a pair that really flattered my face shape and personality. I was most appreciative of how clearly the team walked me through my insurance coverage and payment options so that I understood what I was charged for.

Seems very knowlegeable. Talks much more than she listens to you. It sometimes feels she is pushing a "hard sell" of products to make money over one's interests or care.

I have been going to Dr. Slusky for a few years now and she is great! Always super thorough, takes time to get to know you, and talks through any concerns. When I was switching contact lenses she let me try a variety to help decide on comfort and took her time with the follow up to make sure everything was perfect. Highly recommend her!

Dr. Slusky was recommended by two friends, and I'm glad I took their recommendation. She's friendly and offered a very detailed explanation of what she was testing and my results, and how eye treatment has changed over the years. A great first-time visit, after having been with my previous doctor (now retired) for a very long time. I will be back next year for my annual checkup. Her associate Michel who helped me select frames was great too, more attentive to proper fit than other stores I've used in the neighborhood.

Gret, personal service. Dr. Slusky spent plenty of time with me and asked real questions to get a clear picture of my history. She presented ideas and a plan with solutions. Her exam was thorough and her explanation easy to understand. It can be so hard to get an accurate eye exam but I felt she really did a great job and made it easy. She definitely listened to my concern and thoughts. She's a keeper.

My appointment was for a regular eye check up at 5:50PM. I arrived early for my appointment but was not seen by the doctor until 6PM, nothing out of the ordinary. I was told that Dr. Joanna was out then and I would be seen by someone else. Fine. I was given my glasses prescription which took about 10 minutes, and then told they couldn't dilate my eyes because it was "too late in the day." Why do you allow appointments this late if you cannot perform the entire check up in the amount of time allotted before you close? I was a little upset by this, but I was told I could make another appointment to come back and get my eyes dilated. I was then taken out of the room to look at glasses. I was incredibly uncomfortable because I felt like I was being forced to buy something I wasn't ready to purchase. Someone also attempted to sell me a special dry eye check up. During this time I saw the doctor leave and say "I'm getting out of her early!" So basically it seemed like she couldn't perform my entire check up because she wanted to leave early. I was kept here until 7:15 (I was under the impression they closed at 7), and during this time I believe I could have had my entire check up completed. I never even scheduled my dilation appointment because I was so uncomfortable and so upset from my experience. If you are going to provide an appointment at 5:50PM and not be able to complete the entire appointment, please don't offer it.

I have been to see Dr. Slusky a few times now and each time was not a great experience. I feel judged for not accepting certain products that she suggests or if I come in with a common eye infection. The wait time for all 3 of my appointments has been at least 20 minutes. I don't feel that Dr Slusky is professional and I will not be returning to see her in the future.

I absolutely loved the doctor - she was phenomenal. I wish I hadn't felt so pressured to pick glasses in the store, I'm a college student and can't afford Tom Ford at this point in my life. I'll definitely come back to see the doctor but will get frames elsewhere

Dr. Slusky always listens to my concerns and gives the best tips on how to improve eye sight. She's helped me find the most perfect, comfortable, and long wearing contact lenses. If you're looking for trendy frames this is the SPOT! Jeimy is AWESOME! She is so in tune with my fashion style and always recommends the best frames that not only fit my style but also my budget. They are not pushy and I have been going to them for years now. I've even started bringing my son who also scored a handsome pair of glasses. I can't wait for my next eye appointment.
