Verified Patient Reviews
Very helpful! No wait time, friendly office staff-
She was professional, quick, andpainless. She put my mind at ease. I'd highly recommend her, and return for a six-month follow-up in heartbeat. Plus, the price was right!
The dr really took her time with both of my prescriptions and was super helpful in selecting contact brands. Jai was epic in both our phone calls and in person-- he was very helpful with information, patient and honest in selecting great frames (that man has an eye for style!), and was all-around wonderful. They have a fantastic selection of frames in stock and the place is well kept. We are so happy we found this place on zocdoc and will continue coming here for all of our optical needs.
Staff was extremely nice and informative. Definitely worth coming here. Wait time was quick as well.
Both the doctor and the gentleman who helped me before I saw the doctor were very friendly and communicative. It was a nice change from most New York places.
I showed up very early for my appointment. Dr. Kim saw me right away without incident. She explained everything well. I enjoyed my visit! If I have any vision issues in the future I won’t hesitate to make an appointment to see her again.
Dr. Kim was very professional and answered all of my concerns.
It was a great experience! Dr. Kim was thorough and knowledgable, as was all the other staff that helped us throughout the visit. I highly recommend!
Very nice staff
Very quick visit, capable of answering my concerns and questions.
Very professional and efficient. Highly recommend.
Amazing staff and lens selection. Highly recommended.
Wasn't very helpful in answering my questions about my procedure or how to order glasses.
The office staff was friendly and professional, but Dr. Kim's bedside manner was pretty lacking - she seemed pretty unhappy, not very thorough, and in a rush to end the appointment. Maybe I caught her on an off day...but I'm not coming back.
She had a really bad attitude and bedside manner. Seemed like she was annoyed even having to see me and couldn't bother answering any questions. If you need someone compassionate who is going to give you a thorough exam, don't bother with her.
Everyone that worked there was really nice but the doctor was very rude and made me feel stupid about losing my glasses and doing the letter test. Pretty much I won't be coming back just because of her.
Super nice. Quick and easy and to the point.
First appt of the day...dr was a little late. But, once she arrived my appt was prompt and efficient. I would recommend.
Fantastic service! I will definitely be back.
My visit was pleasant. Everyone was polite and friendly. Most of all very professional. Great place!
My contacts caused me massive discomfort and redness today very suddenly while at work. It was very alarming. The irritation was getting worse, so I quickly went on ZocDoc and booked the first doctor that had a same day appointment available. Dr. Kim saw me very quickly, and made me feel reassured. She listened and showed concern, and talked me through everything to come up with a good course of treatment. I did not feel rushed or dismissed in any way; she made me feel very relieved that I didn't have an emergency! Although I didn't have vision insurance, the cost of the visit and the medicine she prescribed were both very affordable. I would be happy to go back to her as a regular eye doctor!
Very welcoming, helpful and professional :).
Great and quick service
Great experience. I was seen right away, the staff were friendly and helpful. Dr. Kim was quick and efficient, and I was in and out in <20 minutes. This is a no frills office - speedy and affordable. Definitely recommend.
Friendly staff and no wait time
No complaints. Great prompt/friendly service and answered all my questions.
Very quick and professional staff. I was in and out in 20 minutes and they took good care of my contacts lens fitting needs.
She was extremely helpful and very thorough.
Quick and easy! Would go again.
Quick and painless. And affordable. Highly recommend
She was very friendly and I did not have to wait too long to see her. I would highly recommend her to my friends.
Julia and her staff were patient and knowledgable in answering all my questions. I would not hesitate to recommend this office.
This was my first time coming to this location and I came in and they had my information there already because I filled out the paperwork online before coming in. I didn't have to wait at all, they simple verified my insurance and I explained to them what I was there for and saw the doctor right away. Everyone was friendly and the whole process was very fast. I definitely would recommend her and would come again.
She was honest and awesome
Dr. Kim was efficient and kind, as were the other staff in the office. My only complaint is that my wait was about 20 minutes.
Quick, informative and accurate. Everyone that works there is very nice and accommodating.
Seamless expierrnce, very thoughtful and pleasant - highly professional. Never going anywhere else!
Everyone was kind and very knowledgeable! I greatly enjoyed my time here.
Wonderful office and friendly staff! Had a great experience today and was ready and set with a pair of eyeglasses within 10 min
The clinic was fine and the staff was very friendly but I didn't think that the doctor had a good approach to prescribing me contacts--I had to go back to get them refitted. The male doctor, however, was very helpful the 2nd time that I came in and had me with a new set right away. They took my insurance and ordered my contacts for me so in that sense they saved me some trouble.
Quick and efficient. They were very friendly and helpful.
She wasn't very personable but the office itself is warm and the staff are nice and attentive. Can book an appointment fast and they are reliable. Overall a good eye doctor.
Very quick and easy. Everyone in the office was friendly
Very nice and helpful. Highly recommend.
Friendly and on time, but not very thorough. If you already know your prescription and aren't worried about checking for other possible eye problems, then go see her.
Appointment was quick and efficient. Her office was quite small so no more than 1 person could fit in.
They had anther OD on staff and thy informed me when I got there. However grateful that he treated my problem and it went away.
This was my second visit and as before the appointment was excellent and I will be back.
Smooth quick and good service!
I felt comfortable during my visit with Julia Kim,OD.
no wait. Awesome
She was nice, fast, and attentive. I would highly recommend her to a friend.
This office was fantastic. They got me in very quickly and were very knowledgeable and friendly. Will definitely return!
Quick and easy. Very helpful all around!
This is the best BEST optical Ive ever been to, extremely well mannered, very personable, BEAUTIFUL space, gracious and helpful staff I think I have found a place i never want to leave it was literally a perfect experience
Not very friendly, seemed fairly knowledgeable though
This office lacked customer service. The actual eye doctor was not personable and her bedside manners were poor. Don't know if her mood had anything to do with the fact that she is pregnant. They were all more interested in what insurance i had and how they were going to get paid for seeing me. Overall i didn't end up getting the eye exam there they said that they could not help me. I would not go back here nor would i recommed her to anyone.
Nothing fancy, but visit was great and quick. Will go back if I have to.
She was not thorough, did not ask questions, couldn't answer mine, and it felt like a waste of time...and not reputable. I only went as my insurance is taken there, but wow.
Would not recommend Dr Kim. She is a nice person but arrived late and was not very thorough with the examination. She seemed not to care much about me or what she was doing.
Very organize and quick. No wait. Never had an appointment schedule and was seen exactly the time it was booked. Quick and fast.
Awesome. Quick, painless, and fast. Walk-in and all my information and coverage was ready. No wait to see the doctor.
