This was my first time to an ophthalmologist, so I had no idea what to expect. The staff person who did the initial exam explained everything, and was pleasant and efficient. Dr. Cohen was friendly, professional, thorough, and very informative. I left feeling very satisfied and well cared for by all. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen!

Perhaps the wait was so long because a patient came in one hour late for their appointment and was taken next.

The wait was absurd... the office is clearly overbooking appointments at the expense of patients' time. I waited an hour and a half before finally seeing Dr. Cohen. While my actual experience with him was pleasant, the wait is unacceptable.

This is somewhat of an assembly line operation and although the service was professional my total wait time was about 2 hours for a total of about 20 minutes of service time.This is not unusual for operations which seek to maximize the productivity of the doctor but it comes at the expense of the patients time.

Perfectly fine doctor but the wait time was 2 hours. Even though they explained it was due to an emergency and then patients arriving late, this wait time has happened EVERY TIME I've gone for the past few years. I'm taking my eyes elsewhere, it's just unacceptable to wait 2 hours for an appointment that lasts 5 minutes.

I've been with Dr. Cohen for a few years, so I think very highly of him. The wait isn't the quickest (partly because of the pre-exam and getting the drops), but once he sees you, you are good to go!

While I have no complaints about the doctor, I am highly disappointed by the way the waiting time. I had to wait for almost two hours to see the doctor, and it is very clear that the office habitually overbooks the available slots. They should realize that they should respect the time of the patients, as much as they want their patients to respect their own time.

Dr. Cohen is a very thorough doctor. He spends a great deal of time examining your eyes. I have been going to an eye doctor since before age 7, annually, and he is the first doctor to have noticed benign and slight retina disorder and referred me to a great specialist. He was very reassuring, explained everything thoroughly and overall has a warm presence that makes for a comfortable visit. The wait in the office is not ideal but never more than 20-30 minutes.

Leeber Cohen MD has been my ophthalmologist for 7 years and has performed lens replacement surgery among other tasks--diagnostic and remedial. He is nothing short of brilliant. The wait time in his office is common among eye surgeons. If one must wait 90 minutes to be examined and counseled by an eye surgeon of his calabre, so be it: well worth the wait, in the case of Dr. Cohen.

He is an excellent doctor. I wasn't sure what to expect since I had never been to an ophthalmologist as an adult. I figured at 41 it was time to get my vision checked. Still have great vision, except for that color blindness thing. Dr. Cohen was very professional and helpful in answering all of my questions.
