I look for these features: 1. Competent doctor and good communicator - Dr Zimski was both 2. Efficiently run practice - receptionist didn’t know how to use Zocdoc (she informed me I should have printed their docs and brought them on).She was not the regular receptionist so this is forgivable but she apologized when she saw the docs had been submitted on line. 3. Efficient Insurance process - the practice shows all accepted insurances on zocdoc and Dr Zimski was knowledgeable about Medicare requirements. I liked that Dr Zimski did all the measurements herself. I was never handed off to other staff. I was seen on time and done in 1/2 hour despite an additional test. Parking was easy. Much better experience than the last 2 ophthalmologists I have tried.

Worst office visit I've ever had. Receptionists are condescending and didn't disclose that they charge more than other offices. There's a "coinsurance" they like to push under the rug that costly... hears reception talking negatively aboutme over the phone in the background because I'm no as fluent in health insurance. Total lack of respect and professionalism... doctor was okay, everything else was awful.

She was very personable and well informed. My husband has a chronic eye infection and she was very proactive in getting him the appropriate treatment. I visited for a routine exam and found her to be very thorough. Glad we found Dr. Zimski!

I wasn't aware that Dr. Zimski was a specialist at the time I booked the appointment (she's an ophthalmologist vs. a regular optometrist like you'd find at Lenscrafters, etc.) and so the only difference from a billing perspective is that thevisit is paid for through your normal medical insurance vs. vision insurance. Dr. Zimski was very professional but warm and informational. I'd definitely recommend her to my friends and family.

She is very nice and professional. She took the time to explain each step in the eye exam process. I got a prescription for bifocal computer glasses when I left. The entire appointment took less than an hour.

Keep in mind that Dr. Zimski is a specialist on the medical insurance side. I was not aware of this, but my copay was minimal. Check your plan, but don't let that deter you from seeing a specialist. I felt muchmore at ease about my dry, red, itchy eyes after seeing Dr. Zimski. She explained what was going on and addressed my concerns. The prescription is expected to work within a few weeks, which I appreciate. I was able to chat with her about my cat. I like having a physician that shows some personality. My appointment was handled efficiently and I was able to get to work within an hour. It's great to be treated well as a patient, even if my appointments are only once a year.

Only complaint was the office was a bit hard to find, mostly due to this site only providing the address. As of June 27th 2014, it was inside the building across from the main entrance of Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center

Lauren was very kind and friendly. We chatted about my job before my exam which put me at ease. She did a wonderful job explaining each part of the exam before she began and wrote me a glasses and contacts prescriptionto take to a less expensive provider when we were done. I will absolutely visit her again.
