Verified Patient Reviews
No complaints. Dr. Glatman is top notch who always answers questions I may have. Highly recommend.
Dr. Josh Glatman is very professional and knowledgeable. He takes his time to listen to you, he has an excellent bedside manner, and he gives very helpful advice. His staff is also very professional- they are very friendly and they really focus on helping you. I have visited the doctor's office 3 times and all 3 times I was seen fairly quickly. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Josh Glatman and his staff to anyone seeking a truly professional doctor who cares deeply about his patients.
Very professional run office, haven't had to wait more than 10 minutes. Compared to my "normal" ophthalmologist who makes me wait on average 2 hours. This year alone I've probably spent 40 hours waiting to see that guy. Dr Glatman takes the time to explain what is going on with your eye(s) and gives you up front the chances for a successful outcome and what you need to do to achieve that. My former guy would just tell you "it will get better" when I would tell them I couldn't see. I finally just got tired of them acting like I was a nuisance and asked my optometrist to suggest somebody else. I saw Dr Glatman on Wednesday and was told I had a detached retina. By Monday I was in surgery getting it corrected. Other guy, took 9 months to get cataract surgery. They seem to run on quantity, not quality. Since I only have one set of eyes, can't afford to go with somebody who just looks at me like another number. If personal attention is what you want, Dr Glatman is the person to see.

I am color deficient (red/green) my eyesight is 20/15, the reason for my visit was to get a diagnosis in order to qualify for a job which involves driving a commercial vehicle. I needed an ophthalmologist who would attest that I am able to distinguish between red, amber and green, (e.g. stop light, road signs, etc). even if I see in shades of grey. I don't see colors in shades of grey. I can clearly distinguish any color of any road sign, blinking or not. Dr. Glatman was unable/unwilling to establish my color proficiency beyond the standard poke-dot pattern color blind test. I just don't understand how can someone obtain a physician license without any capability to think outside the conventional training or common sense. Perhaps he may lack some intestinal fortitude to give his medical opinion on his patient to another healthcare professional but that is just my humble opinion. Insurance premiums are high my guess.
Very thorough. Excellent doctor!
very courteous and professional
Dr Glatman is the best in his field.He spends a long time explaining all the details of his examine. He is very, very intelligent and a warm caring doctor. His patients come from all over to see him. One patient came from Islip. I would never see another retina surgeon. Top notch.
I thought it was professional and thorough. I was very pleased.
I would have to say I have a very high opinion of him in comparison to the other optomalogist

Very organized and polite staff. Doctor himself is a very professional and extremely nice person. Was very informative and listened to all my concerns. He indicated the problem and was able to help me right away. The visit couldn't be better handled. Thank you, Doctor and the team! :)
The only reason I had to wait "less than 30 minutes" was because I had to fill out paperwork for a first visit. I thought he and his staff were very nice. It was an emergency visit and he was very thorough and explained everything to me.
