Dr. Werner was very professional, down to earth and kind. My visit was informative; I learned a few new things about my eyes, picked out a new pair of glasses and have my return visit scheduled in a few months.

it's REALLY hard to find a good doctor in NYC--Dr. Werner is the first doctor in NYC that I would 100% recommend for a number of reasons. Everyone in the office was superb. Win!

So I booked an appointment for my 3yr old because it says that they take children on the site, but they actually don't see 3yr olds. So we got evaluated but my daughter still has to be seen by a pediatric ophthalmologist. So, extra copayment for me. While everyone was really nice, it still would have been nice not to have to waste time and money.

His staff needs more training. They do not know how to talk to people. They are not knowledgeable on insurance companies and how they work, at the front desk. The staff was very patient and helpful in finding the right pair of glasses. Going thru billing issues, even after I doubled checked to make sure I paid for eye exam before I left.

The wait was a bit long this time and I felt like I was being shuffled around a lot. I wish I was able to stay in one room and had been visited by all the medical professionals in one place.

Office seems large, there are a few doctors. An assistant is doing the basic eye exam, then Doctor Werner will see you for the actual eye exam. Examination is ok, with dilated pupils you are asked to settle the bill and look and possible frames with lenses in the in-house optical store/corner. Which makes it more guessing as you can't see well with dilated pupils. Am not sure if all eye doctors have that procedure, as it was my first experience with an eye doctor... But I thought it was uncomfortable and awkward.

Everyone in Dr. Werner's office was very friendly, a huge plus in my book. I felt as though I was treated with excellent care and consideration. The only thing that was a bit frustrating was the game of musical chairs they seem to play when you are actually seen by a doctor. I was told to switch rooms six times to perform a different test/examination in each one, which was a bit cumbersome. Perhaps there's an easier way?

Since moving to New York a couple of months ago, I have been exceptionally pleased with the health professionals that I have seen. My visit with Marc Werner, however, is an exception. Dr. Werner was too sharp and direct when he asked questions and seemed impatient at times (perhaps this is understandable considering the fact that he was seeing about five patients at the same time). I greatly appreciate when medical professionals take the time to briefly inform me how and why the tests they perform might rule out certain diagnoses. I was disappointed that Dr. Werner barely did this. I was also a bit put off and was initially confused by the fact that, when examining my eyes, Dr. Werner used nonverbal cues (like pointing brusquely at the ceiling as an indication that I should look up) instead of simply asking me to move my eyes in particular directions. At the end of my appointment I was asked to schedule a follow-up in six weeks without being told why I needed a follow up (I see no reason to have one). I will most likely not be returning to this office.

Dr. Werner is really great - I have been coming to him for years. He trained at Hopkins, and Wilmer is really one of the top institutions in the world. He always gives an honest answer about what he's looking for when he does an exam, and he has great bedside manner. I think he makes his patients feel comfortable being there and even though it's just chit chat, it's fun to talk to him. He does talk about lasik a lot...every year I come, he asks me to consider getting lasik. Gallo (is that how you spell it?), who always does my exam for contacts, is also amazing. He is really helpful and straightforward with payments, as well, explaining what is covered by insurance and what is not. He also helps you figure out what you need (new glasses or more contacts) and which deal is better based on where you are in your insurance cycle (e.g. if glasses are only covered every two years but contacts are every year).

For the first time in a long time, I felt like I was in good hands for my eye care. I had a procedure for removal of a chelation and I was in and out in no time and healed very well. The follow up was quick but thorough and very professional. I will go back to him.

Dr. Werner was very nice, however I waited 1 hour to even be seen and then I was shuffled in and out of rooms while about 6 other patients came and went. I was not pleased about that, the office did not call to say he was running an hour behind either. It felt like a carosel once I was in the back people moving in and out of different rooms. Lots of chaos.

Everything went well with the doctor, but there was a misunderstanding with the office and zocdoc appointment details. You can use either medical or vision insurance for these check-ups. I thought I had specifically checked off that i wanted to use my vision insurance when I made the appointment through zocdoc because it would have been a free visit. Apparently either I didn't actually do it, didn't have the option to switch it, or the office messed it up, but I got billed for my visit and the office wouldn't let me change it. The doctors were great, but the woman at the front desk seemed to not care about anything and spent most of the time on her cellphone chatting. She was being very forceful with my having to pay the bill and not even trying to check to see if the insurance could be switched. How rude!
