I came to Dr. Macy for a second opinion from another eye doctor that didn’t leave me feeling like he was giving me the best care. Dr. Macy and his entire staff are warm and efficient. And it’s one stop. Whenyou finish your exam, they have optometrists that will fit you with prescription glasses/sunglasses! The optometrist sat with me for an hour while I tried on frames until I found the perfect ones. Very patient and caring!

Dr. Macy made sure I was thoroughly tested and explained my condition. He seemed to understand my frustration and discomfort in dealing with my vision problem. Each person in the office was friendly and efficient. Sometimes you go into a doctor'soffice and are made to feel like they are doing you a big favor - not here. I felt comfortable, welcome, and well taken care of.

Dr. Shirin Yousefi did the bulk of my exam, and she was AMAZING. She was funny, personable, and no-nonsense; I appreciate that immensely in a doctor. I'm new to the city, and finding new practices is always a crapshoot. I couldn't be happier about this discovery!

It was a very good experience. The Doctor is so nice, and explained everything so I could understand. Fortunately, my eyes are healthy for now. The appointment went very well. The office staff was very friendly. The only reason I hada 30 minute wait was because I was about 30 minutes early!!
