The people at the front desk were not friendly at all. It was my first time going there, and I walkedup to the receptionist and she rudely said “go wait by the right pillar” like I was a criminal or something. I came here to get my vision checked, not to be yelled at for no reason.

Dr. Basile would be excellent if not for the long waits. It does not matter if the appointment is booked inthe 34th clinic or 23rd clinic. So I only see her every other year to minimize exposure to long waits. In the recent visit, she only saw me 1.5 hours from my arrival. I did e-check-in but my wait was even longer than my past 1 hour visits. I realize I need to allocate at least 2.5 hours = 2 hours wait plus half hour commute to have Dr. Basile check my eyes. I am guessing ZocDoc over books appointments.

This was my first visit with Dr. Basile. Although the wait was longer than I would have liked, the important thing was the doctor herself. She was personable and warm. Even though she was so busy, she took the time to explain new (unexpected and not great) findings and advise me on what to do. I highly recommend her.

She is terrific. Always takes time to answer all of my questions thoroughly and learned about my lifestyle to make recommendations based on my day-to-day. Referred me to a great specialist for a procedure I needed. Last visit they were running late, but that has only happened that one time. I wouldn't let that deter anyone - maybe just budget more time for the appointment.
