I had to wait 1 hour and then 50 minutes the two times I visited. The receptionist was dishonest with me on the phone right before my appointment when I asked if the office was backed up and if there weremany folks on the list before me. When I then politely complained, the receptionists showed no sign of compassion or apology. Dr. Cohen was a complete gentleman, gave thorough explanations, and entertained all my questions. But steer clear of the office if you value your time or aren't completely resigned to the indecency and un-reasonableness of fellow humankind.

Dr. Cohen is the best, even if the wait is long (although I do wish they could figure out a better system so you didn’t have to wait around for 30-50 minutes...). He’s super nice, takes your concerns seriously and helpsyou understand what’s going on. I really, really recommend him.

I was coming to Dr Cohen after having seen a previous eye doctor about the same problem. I was still experiencing issues and was distressed since the other doctor was very dismissive of me and my symptoms. Dr. Cohen was kind,gentle and precise. He took the time to listen to me and calm my nerves and after examining me took the time to carefully explain his diagnosis. He answered all of my questions with care and I did not feel rushed in any way. He even called my primary care doctor to discuss the issue. The only downside was the longer waiting time but other than that he was wonderful and I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Leeber was also very pleasant, and thoroughly explained what he was looking for, what he saw, and what the results meant. I couldn't have asked for a morepleasant and through visit.
