Excellent experience! Went because I suspected I might have a small chalazion in the upper eyelid. Dr. Weinstein confirmed my suspicion – but said that because it's so small we should just wait and watch. I truly appreciate a Doctor thatdoesn't "overreact" and push unneeded procedures or subscribe unneeded medication. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting an eye exam, experiencing a problem (chalazion, stye, infection, dry eyes, foreign object), or a person that needs LASIK (my understanding is that he was the first to offer LASIK on Long Island). He's very friendly, very personable, and seems very knowledgeable.

Didn't know why I was there, even though I said in the online form and then filled it out again in the office. Didn't realize he didn't know until after he had done other tests. Put drops in my eyes withoutexplaining what they were or what effect they would have.

Worse experience ever! His office never told me that they don't do contact lens eye exam. After telling the doctor that I need contact lenses, he told me to bring the old box which was given a year ago by anotherdoctor, so that he can give the same prescription. As I know, your prescription changes with time, why am I paying him the big bucks so that he can copy my last year's prescription? His reply was you wasted my time! Unbelievable and worse experience ever. Please stay away if you're looking for a doctor who cares about your health. This guy just wants your money!
