I had a very positive experience with Dr. Manusis. She knows what she is talking about and was very forthcoming with all the information that I needed. I was there for a cataract surgery consultation and I got all I neededto make an informed decision. Front desk was polite and helpful and efficient.

I have been going to Dr. Manusis fro two years now, and had my first cataract surgery, which she had been monitoring for 18 months, last Thursday, which went perfectly and painlessly. I have complete faith in Dr Manusis, she isextremely thorough, caring and respectful. Her staff is friendly and efficient and they clearly look up to this doctor which is an excellent sign. Yes, it's a busy office, but that's because these are excellent doctors.

The office is insanely packed and flustered staff are unapologetic. 3/5 times I have come for recurring issues I have waited 45+ minutes to be seen. Anyone attempting to come for an on time visit during working hours will be disappointed.The delays are all the more irritating given that Dr. Manusis comes off as uncaring and rushed.

Front desk was very helpful and polite, no wait at all. Dr. Manusis was unpleasant, and clearly in a hurry since my appointment was towards the end of the day. Apparently, it was more important to sit and gossip with thestaff than to do her job. I don't expect anyone to hold my hand, but she didn't let me fully relay my concerns regarding my condition, and didn't do much explaining herself when I had questions.

Very helpful stuff, both the doctor and her medical assistant, caring, attentive and professional. The office is clean, well equipped with modern technology, all required tests are done on the spot. Waiting time is acceptable, there is enoughroom in the reception to feel comfortable while waiting. The lack of internet access was the only disappointment.

Kira is the best doctor I have ever had a visit with. I made the appointment for my grandmother and when we arrived we could tell that Kira really cared and knew what she was doing. If you want an ophthalmologist that cares then I highly recommend Kira.

She was quick, it seems that she knows well what she is doing, for a new patient I was expecting more questions, but she went right to the point quickly and prescribed the medicine that it really helped me (no likethe other doctor I saw before and gave me a medicine that was making things worse).

I was very satisfied with the professional care I received. Clients should know that they will be seen by a technician for a comprehensive eye exam before seeing the doctor. Overall I am satisfied and would recommend this center.

Terrible bedside manner. No advice given and no treatment to help my discomfort while i was in the office. Given a prescription and was walked away from without asking if I had any questions or concerns. I barely had a chanceto say anything for that manner. Spent about 3 minutes with me and went to next room for another patient. Never again

I'm very happy to have found her...I feel much more confident than I did with the former "factory" where I used to go. Dr. Manusis is knowledgeable, informative and very pleasant. I highly recommend her.

Had a long wait and then another wait once in the exam room, however the Dr. along with her tech were very friendly and answered all of my questions. The front desk staff weren't as friendly and took forever to acknowledgeme. Paperwork is consuming but a simple, "Hi, we'll be right with you", would've been nice.

The 5 minutes I spent with Kira were great and she explained things and was to the point. But the 1.5h wait before was far from pleasant. Do not go to the Eye Infirmary (14th street) unless you have to -- the place is a zoo!

I like the doctor and her staff quite a bit, however I waited in the office for nearly 2 hours before being seen, and then had to repeatedly wait in the waiting room between tests. Overall I was there from 1pmto 5pm, it was ridiculous and I missed a lot of work.
