Dr. Basile was great and very thorough! However, the communication between Zocdoc and whatever system the Dr. office uses do not communicate. So if you're using Zocdoc make sure you call the office to confirm they have your appointment. If not, be ready to wait about an hour to be seen. Plus fill out tons of paperwork that I had already submitted via Zocdoc too but the office did not receive. So annoying.

I had an early morning appointment and when I arrived I was the only one there. I scooted right in, saw the nurse and then Dr. Basile. This was my first ever eye exam and she was incredibly thorough, patient, kind, gentle and talked me through the whole procedure. I will most certainly be returning to the kind, friendly and helpful office!

Dr. Basile was kind and efficient during my visit. I would have appreciated if she explained what she was doing and checking for- this was my first time to the ophthalmologist and I didn't really understand what was going on. The office itself is dingy- could certainly use some color and light. The staff was pleasant although my wait was long (30 minutes after my scheduled appointment time).

Dr. Basile is one of my favorite doctors. I have been going to see her since 2011 when she was still with Beth Israel before Sinai bought the practice. Dr. Basile is compassionate, knowledgeable and treats every patient like a person. Although I love Dr. Basile, I have had nothing but problems regarding her billing department and her front desk. The phone line is always busy or rings without anyone picking up the line. I have had to call 7 times in one day to get through to someone on the other end. There are issues with my bill every time I have been billed since 2014. If Dr. Basile herself was not such an excellent practitioner, the issues with billing and the front end would have driven me away a long time ago. It is unfortunate that the administrative team does not match the service excellence of this practitioner.
