The staff are very rude. They always try to sell. The don’t give good glasses. The doctor is nice but very rude and careless staff. These ladies are not nice at all.

My visit was great. However, when trying to call them back to discuss my contact lenses prescription. The lady on the phone told me I never went to this location even though I saw this doctor and used the address inthe zocdoc application. So now I have to travel to the store to just to let them now how the contacts were. They need to update the address and phone number in the zocdoc app.

The establishment is up to date on decor and on medical equipments. Great selection on eye glasses . The only negative is that it’s hard to find parking in that area.

Dr Marina was excellent. All her staff, especially her assistant nurse Anna was very courteous and highly professional. Dr Marina was extremely helpful and helped me by providing her email address for further exchange of information as I wastraveling out of country the next day. The clinic and the outlet was spick and span; the location was convenient to find. Overall, fully recommended.

The Doctor and Doctor's assistant were both great, nice, personable and did a wonderful job at making me feel comfortable, I would definetly recommend them to anyone. However, the girl at the front desk when you sign in, was rude andhad a terrible attitude. She did not want to answer any questions regarding the information that she required me to sign and overall presented poor customer service. I still give my visit a GOOD status because the physicians were great and that is what matters most.

While the doctor herself is recommended. The wait time is just ridiculous. 11am appointment, doctor didnt even get in till 11:20. I was the first patient and wasnt seen till 11:40 until i asked twice what was going on. Why evenmake an appointment if i have to wait 40 mins.

Everything was great, except the fact that I was seen by another doctor. She was very nice, but I would prefer to be informed at least at the front desk who was going to take care of me. I also hadapproximately 4 different tests before even being asked what was the purpose of my visit. I wanted to discuss an option of me wearing contact lenses in addition to my glasses, but the doctor told me it would require some other tests which "we can do next time". Besides that, everything went pretty well.

I LOVED Dr. Kotlyar and her assistant who did the vision tests. Both very knowledgeable, caring and pleasant to speak with. I need glasses for the first time, and felt like Dr. Kotlyar explained things to me very patiently, and didn'tpressure me to buy glasses at the store. What I didn't like about the office: its in the back of a store that sells glasses--felt a bit weird to me, but they are in mid-construction, so I am sure the waiting area will be beautiful soon. It wasn't clear where I should go and the doctor's receptionist didn't know what to do with my insurance. Annoying, since I had my info through ZocDoc for weeks, but fine because the doctors fee was the same as my co-pay, so same/same. The wait wasn't short either, but all in all, the exam and chat with the doctor was great, so worth it.
