I made this appointment because I was having issues with my vision. When I arrived, she informed me she does eye lid surgery and not have the drops to check my vision. I was very disappointed because I looked on thiswebsite for a opthamologist. I took the day off work and had to find another Dr. to look at my vision issue. The Dr. was very nice and apologized. Very disappointed in Zocdoc.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Albrecht for emergency visits because she was the only doc available nearby for a next-day visit. I scheduled an appointment with her at 2:00 a.m. for the next morning and that was GREAT! But when Iwalked in to meet her, her eyes were very red and her face was so puffed up from injections that her eyes looked recessed. That was a very weird look for a surgeon who needs to see to operate. She also looks nothing like her photo so I wasn't sure I was in the right place. Diagnosis was great though and the drops she prescribed are definitely working, so I'm a happy, though weirded-out customer.
