Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Scherick is a kind, knowledgeable, and willing optometrist. He does a thorough exam, explains things articulately, and is a fun conversation. His son who runs the business is also very helpful and discovered that I get free contacts because of my prescription, the only business that has done that in over 15 years of contacts. I will always be grateful for their great work and honesty.
Dr. Scherick took the time to explain what he was doing as well as his reasoning throughout the examination, which I appreciated. He answered all my questions, and was very clear about pointing out a potential warning sign and following through with a colleague's referral and further research on the topic. I appreciated the transparency and the attention to detail with which this whole clinic conducts business.
Dr. Scherick is extremely personable and efficient. I always get exactly what I need when I go in and always leave with a smile. He's the best eye doctor I've had in my many years of wearing glasses and contacts!
Excellent service. Very thorough and professional. Really wants to make sure you get the right pair of glasses.
Highly recommended! Been going for years.
This was my first time seeing Dr. Scherick and I was very happy with my visit and exam. He was very knowledgeable, pleasant to talk to, and explained everything clearly. The exam was thorough and I thought he was genuinely looking out for my best interest. I liked how he didn't look to see what my previous contact lense strength was, he did his own objective exam first. I actually went down in my prescription strength. Will definitely keep going and recommend this place to others! Thank you!
Everything was very efficient and I didn't feel like they were trying to sell me on things I didn't need, which I appreciate. However, I will say that Dr. Scherick's demeanor comes across curt and condescending.
Dr. Scherick is totally professional and very good at his job. I was in-and-out on my lunch break and am excited about my new classes!
This was my second time visiting Dr. S. and he is great! As soon as I walked through the door I was able to meet with him. Standard eye exam but he does a good job of answering questions and putting the patient's best interest first. I would definitely recommend him to my friends/family.
Very good appointment, efficient but time for questions and Dr Scherick provides what seems like professional feedback.
Honestly very easy, staff was super informative and friendly as well as the doctor. Overall great experience !
Dr Scherick is both very professional and very personable.
Awesome and efficient.
He was very quick and thorough. Great doctor with a wealth of information.
Great experience. Very helpful. Very professional. Happy to return.
Extremely efficient and did a thorough exam while I was on my lunch break. The office is clean and I got my glasses just a few days after the exam.
Fantastic bedside manner, great explanation of contact lens options, and timely appointment.
Everything went fine, but no one was particularly warm or personable. Felt more like a nuisance than a patient they would want to keep seeing yearly. Not sure if I will be back.
Easy, quick, and painless
Dr. Scherlick was the definition of average, in every way. Came in from an eye exam and glasses and that's exactly what I got.
Hes very personable and the exam was very detailed. It did not feel rushed at all. Ive been seeing Dr Scherick for the last 3 years and my experiences have been very consistent.
He's an old fashioned guy for the most part, which is likable based on taste. He takes it very seriously if he raises your prescription, which did leave me with not having a strong enough prescription for a year, but he's easy to talk to.
Highly competent, efficient and professional.
I felt very comfortable and relaxed. Great service thanks!
Kenneth took his time and gave good advice.
I've been going to him for a couple years. I've moved out of the neighborhood but still make the trip! Nice guy, pleasant small time office.
Best refraction I've ever had, comprehensive and thorough. The exam lasted about 1/2 hour so I never felt rushed. Dr Scherick was quite personable and and friendly. I highly recommend him.
I was really quite impressed with Dr Scherick. He puts you at ease right away and has a very thorough exam routine. You get the impression immediately that he really knows his stuff. I was very happy with my visit and would highly recommend him.
Always pleasant, professional and prompt.
Great relaxed atmosphere, great attention to detail.
10 yrs best dr in the game
Best OD I've been to, very thorough and patient. Highly recommended!
As a new patient, Dr. Scherick didn't want to know the details of my current contact lens prescription before the exam. He tested my eyes with and without contacts then told me what he thought my current prescription was and what he felt it actually should be, adjusting both the correction and the lens size. This made a tremendous difference and made my contacts much more comfortable.
Dr. Scherick is thorough and thoughtful in his appointments. He addressed my questions and concerns knowledgeably and kindly.
Highly recommend Kenneth Scherick to anyone seeking an eye doctor. I needed to get my annual eye check and new glasses and his office was extremely friendly and helpful. Doctor Scherick made sure to analyze everything about my eyes and spent a great amount of time talking through issues/concerns. Highly recommend this office, very professional, knowledgeable, and overall excellent.
No wait time, I went 10 min earlier and was seen within 5 minutes. Doctor was patient and explained everything well.
Outstanding service, as always! My husband and I are patients over 8 years, we would not go anywhere else! It is totally worth to make the schlep from Brooklyn. They are also great at helping choosing the right frame for you.
I found this visit to be very thorough. I'm looking forward to pickup up my new glasses.
Very quick and professional!
I changed eye doctors to Dr. Sherick and he was phenomenal. He saw my promptly after I arrived for the appointment. He was extremely thorough and took the time to get a complete history, as well as took the time to do an extensive examination. He did not make me feel rushed in any way and answered any questions I had. The staff in the office were also extremely attentive and efficient. One member took the time to call me beforehand to make sure my insurance details were correct, and he had done the research by the time I was done with the appointment about what specifically my insurance covered, as well as help me order my new contacts. 10/10
Dr. Scherick was thorough and extremely friendly. We had a lovely conversation during the session and he made sure I understood the best options for the health of my eyes. He also made sure that I got the most out of my insurance coverage. I will definitely be going back!!
I've love Dr. Scherick! I've been going to him for the last 6 years, and even though my insurance company isn't in-network anymore, it is still 100% worth it to go see him. Dr. Scherick is very thorough, answers all of my questions, and makes great recommendations for my contact lenses. In addition the front office staff is always very helpful and professional. They even called me to let me know that my insurance company wasn't in network anymore. I really appreciate this high level of service. Also, I placed an order for contact lenses on Saturday and they arrived to my apartment a few days later.
Very easy and enjoyable experience.
He was a really nice guy. Took me early and in no way rushed me. Had a long talk with me about laser eye surgery and was very honest about it which I very much appreciated. He reminded me a bit of Bernie Sanders which in my book is awesome. Will regularly see. Thanks Dr. Sherick!
Dr. Scherick is very thorough and provides great answers to my questions (if any). He is also very good about keeping appointment times and I'm very pleased with the store services as well. He has a wonderful personality- quite funny and personable. I would recommend him to anyone.
Very good and organized visit.
Great experience. I was a little taken back by the fees, but it was worth it for the time he spent with me determining the correct fit of my lenses, etc.
Excellent optometrist. Was extremely thorough and helpful. He took his time and I didn't feel like he was rushing to just get on to the next patient.
I've been seeing Dr Scherick for a number of years now and I still go back to see him despite living in a different part of the city. He is extremely friendly, professional and leaves me feeling comfortable that I've had the best advice and care.
No wait time at all, very thorough.
My second visit and it was as good as my first. Very detailed visit.
This was my first time visiting Dr. Sherick at Kips Bay Optical and it definitely will not be the last. He was extremely thorough with his eye exam and detailed in providing me with information on the best contact lenses for my personal needs. Personable and friendly, I would highly recommend Dr. Sherick to anyone looking for a new eye doctor!
Very efficient and pleasant.
Very professional. No wait and very knowledgeable and friendly.
Was seen right away. Thorough exam.
Professional, knowledgable and thorough.
This was another follow-up visit for some new contacts - I have some complicated issues, but Dr. Scherick is taking the time to try to find the best solution, and I appreciate that he really listens to what I am saying. Very professional, very thorough.
We're still working on getting the right contacts, but Dr. Scherick takes the time to discuss my expectations and explain the different lens options available.
He is nice and thoughtfully answers all questions. i have seen him twice for an eye exam and never had to wait.
Dr, Scherick was prompt, professional and very thorough with the exam. I have complex contact lens issues and he went to great lengths to describe different options and products. We are still working on a solution, but I overall I am pleased with the service, care and attention to detail.
Seen right away, thorough exam, and offers free contact solution and free trial lenses along with normal supply.
Very professional, experienced and friendly OD.
Excellent practioner over a very long time. Still at the top of his game.
The doctor and his staff are excellent professionals. I could not ask for a better patient experience. Thanks as usual for your care.
Wash a bit pushy at times, nevertheless professional.
Gotta fix my contacts prescription asap.... its small adjustments and why does he have me leaning forward while sitting in the chair. Shouldnt i be sitting back or have the chair in a position where i am relaxed and not straining any part of my body so it doesnt put tension on anything connected to my eyes? I felt it was a bit rushed. That is all.
He was very attentive and kind. He took plenty of time with me and I never felt rushed. Great guy, great doctor.
Straightforward, honest doctor. I will be going back for any vision related issues and would recommend.
Very thorough and straight forward. Took the time to explain his findings and my options. Does not rush.
Dr. Scherick was very polite, straight to the point and honest. I didn't have to wait at all. I'd definitely recommend him to any of my friends or family.
Dr. Scherick is the best. So friendly and really explains everything. He doesn't just tell you to do something -- he tells you why he's recommending whatever it may be.
No nonsense, knows his stuff, talks about what you need to know. This was my second annual appointment with Dr Scherick - will definitely return again next year.
Horrible people-person skills. Customer service is terrible.
Professional and friendly all around. Would highly recommend.
Great one stop shop for your eye exam + eye wear. Dr. Scherick is very prompt, efficient, honest; but most of all, he's efficient and competent at what he does; giving you the necessary information so you can do what you need to do and go about your day. Office assistants are very efficient and patient with troubleshooting any questions you have. Thanks!
I enjoyed my appointment, as he was knowledgeable and helpful. He makes sure you're happy with his services, which I've found is a rarity in Manhattan. I definitely recommend.
My experience with Dr. Scherick was fine. He did a wide range of tests for my standard exam, and clearly knows his stuff and was pleasant to talk to during the exam. However, the exam room felt really cluttered, and the main office could have used a visit from a cleaning service. I definitely saw a dead cockroach on its back along one of the walls of the showroom as I was leaving. Granted it's NYC, and roaches always pop up here and there, but this one was right out in the open, where, if they had cared enough, the guys at the counter could have easily noticed and swept it up. That's not a total deal breaker, but enough to make me think twice about going back.
I went to get a prescription for contact lenses and came to find that Dr. Scherick had incredible bedside manner. He was easy-going, made sure to get the specifications for my prescription correct, and it was clear that his main goal was for me to get the correct prescription with the correct type of contact lens.
Gone to him for years. He always looks out for his patients.
Dr. Scherick provided a careful and complete routine eye exam. I did not feel rushed; he gave me a great deal of time and attention, answered all of my questions and provided additional advice, which I plan to follow. Another staff member assisted me with choosing frames and lenses, and was very helpful and patient as I spent at least 20 minutes asking questions and trying on frames.
Dr. Scherick and his staff are great from A to Z. Definitely a go to place to be treated top quality.
Kenneth was extremely rushed and didn't make me feel welcome in his practice. I felt like he was taking shortcuts during his examination. He cut me off as I was talking and was just plain rude. Will never be back.
excellent experience, Kenneth is professional optometric.
Quick, personable, thorough. An excellent experience overall.
Dr Sherick was excellent - I sometimes find eye examinations a bit confusing, with many questions to answer and little variations to describe. Dr Sherick was very clear, patient and thorough. He explained the purpose of each of the tests and described the different options for contact lenses to suit my needs.
He is the only one I trust to get the right prescription. I moved to Long Island but still travel two hours each way on the train to go to Dr. Scherick.
Great, very professional, thorough. Helpful staff.
Great, professional, thorough, experienced, kind.
Dr. Scherick was very friendly, saw me immediately and explained all my options very clearly. He realized I was likely over-prescribed by my previous eye doctor, and advised that I use contacts with a slightly weaker prescription to save my eyes from premature aging. He also explained all pricing options very clearly. Visit was very quick and efficient.
Honest, professional, affordable.
He is a great doctor, he was efficient but explained everything. I was in and out (and had picked new glasses) in 35 minutes. Amazing!
Always a pleasure to go see Dr Scherick and everyone at Kips Bay Optical. Had an eye exam, repaired some glasses and bought a new pair too. Professional, thorough, patient and just wonderful to do business with.
I've had Dr. Scherick for 5 years since we moved to NYC. Dr. Scherick is very courteous and always very thorough! Adam (the manager and Dr. Scherick's son) is super nice and efficient, and he picked the perfect glasses for me. :) Very happy with their service and I'll definitely go back.
Went with my 16 year old son for his first pair of contact lenses. We were taken in right away and we not rushed through the process.
Dr. Scherick was such a pleasure. He was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. I would certainly recommend him!
Dr. Scherick has a great bedside manner and is very thorough in testing. He is patient and has a great sense of humor. His prices are reasonable and he usually is very good about keeping his appointments. My last wait time was unusually long because the person before me had complications and likely one conversation too many. Normally, I'm seen within 10 mins of waiting so it was unusual. I wouldn't fault him for that one visit that went longer than expected. Would totally recommend him to others.
I have been seeing Dr. Scherick for about ten years (for contact lenses) and he has been unfailingly professional and helpful. He has honed his examination technique well - everything is careful and meticulous - and he is happy to discuss the pros and cons of different products in as much details as you like. Would recommend him any time.
He was knowledgeable, explained what he was testing.
Super nice doctor!
Very professional and courteous. He was able to answer all my questions and address my concerns.
This is my second visit to Dr Scherick for contacts and the office runs like a well oiled machine. They do their best to provide you with the best price options via rebates or bulk. They also fixed my glasses, free of charge, that were purchased elsewhere.
Very knowledgeable and professional. He takes his time during the appointment and doesn't rush you out the door. I would recommend him to anyone.
He is the best!
There was no wait, I was seen immediately. Dr Scherick was friendly and patient. He answered all of my questions and explained everything he was doing. I highly recommend him.
Excellent optometrist, have been going to him for years. Very nice, prompt, professional. Gives you the real deal, never tries to "sell" you on anything.
First time patient and a great experience. Was incredibly convenient to have a Saturday appointment too.
Kenneth was great, but his staff is not the most friendly.
He's quick and thorough. Have been going to him for three years now and would definitely recommend.
Thorough, informative medical professional
Dr is thorough and very attentive. Highly recommended.
Dr. Scherick and the staff are all very nice and professional. You can tell they care about the patients and do their very best every time I go in. I would recommend Dr. Scherick to anybody!
I've been to Dr. Scherick twice for my annual eye exam. He was polite and friendly (not super warm right away, but friendly enough and warms up after you chat with him a little). I was seen very quickly (less than 5 minute wait). I love that the office had all my paperwork already before my first visit since I had filled them out pre-visit on Zocdoc (other doctor's offices I've booked appointments through Zocdoc have not always used the forms I took time to fill out, so I was happy Dr. Scherick's office did, huge timesaver). One of his sons works for him, he was also not super warm, but friendly enough. Everyone was very professional and I was happy with my visits.
Doctor is good, but front desk staff are rude and obnoxious.
Excellent all around!
Overall excellent service. Took the time to make sure my prescription was correct. Explained all options thoroughly. I felt he had my best interest in mind.
He screwed up my prescription, after I had used it to get glasses. Turned into this whole big thing. They eventually replaced the lenses of the glasses myself, but was careless.
Dr. Scherick was really great, he was prompt, kind and sincere. I would certainly recommend him.
Very personable and through with the examination. He gave me a lot of information that allowed me to make an informed decision for my eye care needs. I have been going to eye doctors for over 25yrs and have never had such excellent service. I highly recommend.
Gave me good explanation about why I was not a good candidate for Lasik.
He spent plenty of time with me, changed his strategy when I needed a variety of types of contacts, etc. Also, his staff was really helpful and patient while I picked out about 45 different types of glasses to try on. They also explained how everything worked with my insurance. Great experience!
He's a highly recommended doctor , very dedicated to his work , honest and professional .. I came along from another country and I assure that he's one of the best doctors I ever seen ..
Perfect. Professional, thorough and genial.
Dr. Scherick was wonderful - I really needed to get an opthalmologist exam, not an optometrist exam, which he quickly figured out and offered to give me a referral and not do the exam to save me the co-pay. I wanted to get my vision checked anyway, so I went ahead with the exam but really appreciated the offer--he's clearly interested in helping patients, not simply collecting fees. Highly recommended for anyone who needs an optometrist in Murray Hill/Kips Bay.
Professional yet friendly. This was for a general check up. I felt he was efficient and thorough yet also had a nice manner about him. I'd recommend!
Helpful in explaining the test and what the numbers meant. very friendly
As soon as I made my appointment on Zocdoc, I received a phone call from the receptionist verifying my information. The receptionist was very friendly and she thoroughly explained what my insurance covered. Dr. Scherick examined my eyes for glasses and contacts. He explained how my eyesight has changed. He gave me a few contacts to try at home before having to make the final decision at the follow-up appointment. Dr. Scherick and his son did not pressure me into buying glasses, which was great. The receptionist and his son even tightened my glasses for me. I was very satisfied and recommend it!
Great doctor--thorough, with a very methodical, conservative approach. Would highly recommend!
Professional and friendly.
Dr. Spherick was amazing ! Explained every detail and even confirmed that I needed a different pair of contact lens and gave me a trial pair before paying for anything , his staff was very attentive and took their time I'm helping me pick a pair of frames along with their advice on how it looks and etc ! Love it ! Highly recommended to everyone ! And he's a big Nyu fan !
Very precise and professional. Great experience!
He was a little too brusque. I had to ask questions which he answered only grudgingly. But he is a really competent physician.
His prescription turned out to be wrong once the glasses were made. I had to get tested again and the lenses changed. On the bright side, he did timebox the appointment well since I was out just in time for his next patient.
Dr. Scherick knows what he is talking about and will give you the honest truth. I was skeptical at first of his recommendations, but they helped a ton and my contact wearing experience has been 100% better since seeing him. He is friendly and there is not much wait time to get in.
An extremely pleasant visit. I waited for less than 10 minutes before I was seen. Dr Scherick is thorough, efficient and knowledgable. The office was also very willing to work with my obtuse vision insurance.
Dr. Scherick was excellent. Very professional, informative, patient, and nice. Only downside was the front desk personnel--very cold and unfriendly, as well as slightly rude. The man should do a better job greeting patients and smile more.
He was Great!
After having a number of poor experiences with eye doctors, I was very impressed by the professionalism of Dr. Scherick and would highly recommend his services. I felt very comfortable in his presence, he was very helpful, and he provided a lot of honest opinions and advice for any questions I had or topics we covered. I will definitely be back!
He does a great job and cares about his patients. I am happy I found his office and will return. He knows what he is doing and enjoys his work and it shows.
It was a pleasure! He really knows what he's doing and made sure I was knowledgable about my eyes and comfortable with my new prescription. He's also very friendly and didn't make the visit boring like other eye professionals! Will definitely be back for my next check up!
Very professional, sociable and prompt with visit. Highly recommended.
Very professional and took his time to explain what he was doing through out the process.
Dr. Scherick is professional, funny, and honest. He listened to my feedback about the strength of my lenses, explained what he thought, and was super thorough in exploring both options. Also, he made that horrible puff of air part funny. And, just like last year, he sent me home with a trial of my new lenses with instructions to call to confirm the prescription or go back to my old one after a test period. Highly recommended!
Great eye doctor and very helpful office staff.
Dr Scherick and the entire Kips Bay team were great. This was my first time using ZocDoc and couldn't have been more pleased. Dr Scherick was an absolute professional and super friendly. Highly recommend using him as I know I will definitely be going back there for all my eye issues going forward.
Dr. Scherick is very professional and I had a great first experience at his office.
Great doctor, very friendly and made me feel comfortable. The office was nice, clean and comfortable. He explained everything he was doing and why he was doing it. I will definitely continue to go to him for eye exams!
He showed me what my current prescription was like compared to what he recommended based on my eye exam and was very thorough and informative. I will definitely continue to see him!
Excellent. Excellent. Excellent. I previously went to a doctor pushed services on me AND increased my prescription way too much. Dr. Scherick was patient with me and let me know what was going on every step of the way. I am entirely satisfied with my visit.
Very warm,professional and thorough. Highly recommended!
Dr. Scherick is excellent. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and always eager to explain advances in eye medicine or new products available. Would recommend him to anyone.
He truly cares about the well being of his patients and that is the most important quality that your health provider should have.
Did not have to wait and the doctor was very thorough but quick. He asked my opinion and discussed everything he was doing. I would book another appointment.
He's honestly one of the best eye doctors I've ever been to, and I've been going to eye doctors for a while. He explains everything, and while he might take a while to do so, he just wants his patients to have an understanding of their eye health and how to maintain/improve it. Will definitely be back. Thank you!
Very personable and knowledgeable. Made the visit enjoyable and explained everything which doesn't happen with most other drs.
Friendly and quick staff. Will definitely go again.
Dr Scherick was very nice. He did a thorough exam and was very honest and to the point.
Knowledgeable, excellent care, and fast.
I felt like I was in good hands.
Very thorough eye exam
The son who handles the business side can be a little brusque, but Dr. Scherick was a pleasure, very personable and patient. He chatted with me throughout the appointment, and made himself late to an event just to test out additional prescriptions to make sure that I had the most accurate one. He was very upfront with me about the pros and cons of the different contacts I had to choose from, including pricing. One of the shop assistants who helped me pick out cute glasses that complimented my face remembered me months later the next time I came in, which contributed to the family-practice feel of the place for me. Overall a good experience.
Very thorough, very honest, gave me the best service without trying to squeeze money out of me
Professional and personable. A pleasant experience.
Had a wonderful appointment with Dr Scherick, he was very thorough and explained every part of the exam to me - it was really great and he was very excited to go over everything. I highly recommend choosing him as your eye doctor
It was easy to talk to Kenneth and after he listened to me he made tailored recommendations and explained everything to me all the way. I did not feel rushed a single time and he repeatedly told me to come back or call if I had any problems with my contacts or any questions. He also hooked me up with some solution samples which was really great. I recommend!
He was very good. Took great care to make sure we had a number that was right for me.
A pro, right to the point, got me in and out quickly.
Friendly and efficient!
Very professional. May need some more advanced warning about the pressure test.
Dr. Scherick was very nice and friendly. He was pretty thorough and honest with me and didn't push anything on me that wasn't necessary. His office staff was also very cordial and organized, they had all my information (from Zocdoc) when I checked-in, which was a nice plus. I didn't wait long at all before I was seen for my appointment (less than 5 minutes after I checked-in).
Great checkup, have been a patient with him for several years now.
No wait for a quick but very thorough appt!! Dr. Scherick accurately determined my prescription and worked with me on finding the best option for my needs. I appreciated how he let me take my time deciding if I liked A or B better and I also loved his office staff and how they explain your insurance coverage before you begin so there are no surprises. Highly recommend! Will be coming back for sure.
My visit with Dr Scherick was very nice. I work for an Ophthalmology EMR company, so I have visited many offices throughout the city and nation. His exam was very thorough and he took his time when screening my vision. I have, in the past, experienced visits in which the Dr would not allow enough time for you to decided whether choice 1 or 2 was best. I did not feel rushed at all and I could tell he took pride in his accuracy. Would definitely recommend to family and friends!
He seems very professional and cares about results. I'll certainly go back there, and if the wait time is handled better next time, that'll be a good indicator of my becoming a permanent client of his.
He's awesome! Highly recommend! In and out quickly and gave free samples of contacts to try just to make sure I had what was just right for me.
Wonderful. Very delightful and I enjoyed the fact that he uses older techniques to make sure his diagnosis are accurate; vs current doctors that rely on pure instruments. Highly recommended.
He is a great Doctor. Takes his time and really listens to you. Easily the best eye exam I've had in a very long time. I highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed.
Dr Scherick is very knowledgable and professional. Very thorough. He explained everything he did. The office is clean and very well equupped. No wait at all. The staff are nice too. Very satisfied. Highly recommend to anyone!
They are always fantastic and today's visit was no exception. I wish my regular doctor was as good as he is!
They were running a bit behind schedule but once I got in, he took his time. I appreciated that he didn't just ask me my prescription, but rather, he did his own assessment and then we compared the differences together. Plus, they gave me a free glasses case because mine was broken!
Very nice facility and respectable staff, who were also Very friendly and warm. It feels like a mom and pop shop, but a contemporary nice version of one. Dr. Scherick is very nice and informative and patient. I would definitely go there again!
very helpful, answered all my concerns
Dr. Scherick was efficient and knowledgeable about my terrible vision, and didn't give me a hard time for wearing gross, old contacts. He fitted me for new, awesome contacts and gave me a referral for an ophthalmologist. The other employee patiently explained my new vision benefits and helped me weigh the pros and cons of using the benefits for glasses or contacts. They never pressured me into making a decision on the spot. Great service all around.
Great doctor, took the time to really evaluate my vision and didn't just take my word for it! Appreciated his thoroughness
Eye exam and new glasses. He was very friendly took time to really make sure you got the best suited prescription for you. No wait at all, very personable. Great experience.
I had issues with wearing 2 week lenses. Turns out I was allergic to whatever grows on contacts. Scherick knew right away and suggested I switch to daily's. It has now been a year, and wearing contacts has become a million times easier. No more teary eyes!
My visit here was great (second time here so far)! I was pleasantly surprised at how organized everything was - when I arrived to my appointment, they already had printed out all of my insurance information / costs associated with getting new contacts / etc. Also, I thought Dr. Scherick was great - I really like that he is careful not to prescribe contacts that are too strong, which differs from a lot of other optometrists I've been to. Overall, I'd definitely recommend him & will be coming here in the future.
I told him in the beginning that I was terrible with getting my eyes checked, and instead of being patient with me and working with me and my sensitive eyes (like every eye doctor I've had before), he basically told me there was nothing he could do if I didn't cooperate. He was rude. He didn't even introduce himself or anything.
First time here, will definitely be back and would recommend to others. Dr. Scherick was very thorough and the whole office was friendly and attentive.
It's very convenient that they are open on Saturdays, so brownie points for weekend hours. Dr. K seemed very throrough. At my follow-up appointment I had to wait about half an hour as he was running a bit behind-- no big deal, it happens. The guys at the desk were cool too-- very knowledgeable about insurance, and that was a great help.
Great, attentive, and keeps me informed.
I thought Dr Scherick was fantastic. He didn't just look at my previous glasses to determine what my eyes needed. Instead, he did his own examination and then compared my previous lenses. I didn't need new glasses which was great and I felt little pressure to upgrade my glasses (other places I have been to make you think you should get new frames just say they can make an extra buck). Overall, it was a great experience!
Always helpful, patient, thorough, friendly.
Very nice guy/staff that was super helpful. I'll definitely go back.
First of all, the gentlemen at reception were super charming and helpful. Then he was thorough, friendly, and personable. Even his admonitions about changing my lenses more often weren't hard to take. It also did not hurt that he did not ask for my old prescription and started anew to find out the degree to which my vision should be corrected, before comparing his findings with my old prescription. It turned out that my vision had been overcorrected, and I can't tell you how much better it is to see this way even after just one day!
Very nice and helpful doctor and staff! Thanks so much, see you next time.
Highly recommend. Easy location in Murray hill. Was seen right away and the appointment wasn't rushed. Very knowledgable and personable.
The employees were helpful and professional. The equipment was high tech. Kenneth Scherick was friendly and thorough during the exam. A woman helped me pick out new glasses and she was very patient.
Very professional guy. One of the better eye doctors I've seen. Explains everything to you as he's going, and takes his time to ensure he does it right. He seems to like doing it old school - I asked if he wanted to know my prescription before hand and he said "no, that'll spoil the fun". Hope to keep using him - a very nice guy.
Dr. Scherick brushed me off. He had horrible bedside manner.
Front desk a little pushy over the phone. Dr. is terrific!
Dr. Scherick took me early and was very quick, but thorough. I'll definitely recommend him.
Very attentive, and I'm quite content with my new glasses
There is only one chair in that entire office -for good reason! I came in on my lunch break and was seen right away. Dr. Scherick got straight to business - very fast, efficient and professional. Dr. Scherick has been in the business 36 years, extremely knowledgeable. Don't expect a handshake, a joke, or a "so what do you do for a living?" This office is very polite, but is focused on a swift, efficient experience.
Great customer service, couldn't have asked for better. Was glad to find a doctor with Saturday hours. I was the last appointment, and was 10 minutes late, both the guy at reception and the doctor were very friendly and courteous. They explained exactly what was covered by my insurance and what I would be paying upfront. the doctor answered all of my questions as well and was very helpful in laying out my options for various types of contacts. Definitely recommend.
I highly recommend Dr. Scherick.
Dr. Scherick is very thorough and I appreciate that he takes time with patients to make sure all questions are answered.
Great new location!
Great staff, great service. Oh and great music selection!
Friendly and professional
Felt like he was trying to upsell me. Difficult process picking up contacts, because he was moving, which is understandable. But when I reordered on my own (which he discouraged), he made it somewhat difficult to approve the prescription (said it had expired after a year, despite it not changing for >5 years)
The staff was very helpful in figuring out what my insurance covered and the Dr. was professional, and corrected my prescription.
came in for eye troubles, recommended me to an opthamologist and managed to get me an appointment with him for later that day, free of charge. thanks!
Dr. Scherick and staff were extremely welcoming and efficient. He was able to find a slight astigmatism that hadn't been discovered by any optometrist I had seen in the past. The slight change in prescription has made all the difference and I am now able to wear my glasses without getting pounding headaches. They have a great selection of frames and the staff doesn't make you feel pressured to purchase outside of your comfort level. Very satisfied with my experience.
very good. fast service, honest & informative description of the examination. getting a set of frames was easy and they were trying to optimize my insurance versus up-sell.
Very thorough, knowledgeable, informative and personable. No wait time, and I was able to get an appointment on relatively short notice. I've only seen him once, but really enjoyed my visit and felt that he gave me good advice regarding contacts, glasses and general eye health that I hadn't gotten from previous optometrists in the city. Highly recommended based on my first try and will definitely go again!
Very helpful staff- helped me get best deal possible with my insurance coverage.
Good Dr. I'm new to the city and needed to get my contact lens prescription rechecked. he wasn't pushy, didn't make me change anything but gave me his recommendations and said it was up to me. sounds simple but I was impressed. I hate being forced by dr's to change or try different things. As long as I'm living in the city I'll be back. Also the office staff is very good.
This was the first time I ever used Zocdoc to find a doctor and I was rather pleased. My appointment was at the end of the day so there was no wait. Dr. Scherick was extremely friendly and personable. And, he discovered I was prescribed too high of a prescription in the past. We're trying out a lower prescription and so far its working out great.
Very personable and knowledgeable!
Very professional and very helpful.
Very professional and knowledgeable but also funny and personable. Would highly recommend
Very nice guy who wants to make sure that your eyes are treated right!
Excellent in all aspects
great experience, will definitely go back!
My first visit, but very pleased do far. Even though it was the end of the day, Dr. Scherick took plenty of time with my eye exam and was extremely helpful and forthcoming about the pros / cons of getting contacts.
Dr. Scherick was very thorough, professional but also pleasant. I would definitely recommend him to a friend.
Pleasant doctor, extremely professional.
A kind, thorough exam that left me feeling good about my visual health.
Dr. Scherick was very helpful and extremely thorough. Highly recommended!
Dr Scherick is very pleasant and spent a lot of time trying to give the best prescription for contact lenses. He has a very dedicated and helpful staff. I highly recommend him .
He was great! Very nice and Professional!
I will return with my entire family. There are a great selection of the latest frames as well!
a wonderful doctor and optometrist practice staffed by knowledgeable and helpful people!!
Great visit. Very thorough and highly recommended.
Dr. Scherick was very professional and helpful
I've been seeing Dr. Scherick for about ten years (if I'm recalling correctly) and he is excellent: friendly, well-informed, and will alert you to new products without being pushy. His colleagues (which include his son) are also very pleasant and well-organized.
Very friendly doctor and no wait-time!
Very capable and caring.
Thought he was great - highly recommended.
The front Doctor was really nice, thorough, and efficient. He answered all my questions about my new contacts, and was very patient while teaching me how to put them in. The guy at the front desk was polite and didn't mind explaining the insurance stuff for me as well.
The visit was very quick, easy and his store had a great supply of glasses. His staff was very nice and very friendly :)
Excellent visit. Receptive staff. Outstanding service. Great selection of glasses and appropriate suggestions made arriving at my perfect set of glasses a breeze. His bedside manner was stellar. His staff thought we were having a party in there! Go see the man. My only withholding is that I haven't received my glasses to confirm his optometry.
Dr. Scherick was great! Seen immediately and he was very friendly and helpful. Didn't seem rushed at all. Would definitely recommend and will see again.
no wait time and took the time to explain everything in lehman's terms. great overall experience.
It's always a great experience. I'm always impressed they know my insurance information so well and can help me pick the right options.
Everyone was very nice, there was no wait and the doctor and staff were all helpful with quesitons.
Very professional. Obviously cares about his patients.
Very personable, but didn't waste any time either. The frames sales staff was really helpful as well.
Dr.Scherick is very professional and I got a very thorough eye exam. The guy bebind the counter is very nice and friendly. The only cons of this place is that their frame collection is a little out-dated. Anyways, I would strongly recommend this place.
Very professional and did a thorough job with the examination. Highly recommend.
Scherick was great! It was a quick exam and he was super nice. He doesn't ask for your previous prescription because he likes to start from scratch, which is pretty awesome. He also gave me a ton of free cases of contact solution, so that was definitely a plus. Highly recommend.
Very knowledgeable and professional. Staff is helpful. Dr Scherick really went out of his way to be thorough and explain things. Great experience!
Very thorough exam. Didn't even want to see my last doctor's prescription because he wanted to start fresh. His recommendations were good.
Very quick, and I feel good about the check up
