Dr. Stadlen is the best thing that’s ever happened to my eyes! For years I thought I had some serious eye issues because I was having a lot of problems. Dr. Stadlen gave me the care and attention I needed. Inow have glasses and contacts that fit great and help me see perfectly! Highly recommend Dr Stadlen.

Got there early since I was a new patient and yet still was seen almost an hour after my appointment time. It’s only one doctor yet they schedule 3-4 people for the same time slot. Appointment felt rushed for that reason.

Dr. Stadlen is smart, interested, helpful. Stuck about 4 or 5 different daily contact brands into my eyes which was for me like being allowed to test drive that many cars at a dealership w/o anyone trying to goon me intoa sale. Recommend keeping decently-sized window open for an appt. - he runs late (but I had a primetime 5 pm appt. That also means homie is very popular which speaks volumes on the patient experience. Also his assistants are helpful, pretty, and outwardly kind, so they must not be from NY.

Dr. Stadlen is a great. He was very thorough in my visit, did not rush and was great at explaining everything. Great bedside manner. Only downside was the wait. I made the appt through ZocDoc for a specific time, and soonafter I received a call saying that that time is not available. I was told that they would have to double book me for another slot since I couldn't make it in earlier. A few hours later, I called them back and said that I would actually be able to come in earlier. They said that I should just show up earlier and they would take care of me, no early appt needed. I got there and did some tests, but then waited an hour and a half. I knew that there was going to be a wait since I got there earlier, but I was told about 30 minutes. I understand, it's a medical office. But all I was looking for while waiting were updates on how much longer, but no one spoke to me for that hour and 15 min. The girls in check in were chatting about non-work stuff that it kind of felt weird sitting there and listening to everything. There was one girl that was very nice and took care of me when I came in and when she returned from lunch. She was the only one that noticed that I was waiting quite a long time and addressed it.

My visit was so great! Dr Stalden took his time to get me a new glasses prescription as well as fit me for new contacts. He suggested a new brand that is more comfortable for my eyes and corrected the minormistake my past doctor made with my prescription. I now see better and my eyes are way more comfortable.

The doctor was very friendly and pleasant-- Great bedside manner! He took the time to explain to me in detail why my eyes felt so strained at work and prescribed me a great lens to use when working on the computer.The staff was also extremely helpful and kind in choosing the right glasses for me. They have a great selection of frames with many high-end designer brands aas well as more affordable frames! I definitely recommend :)

I had the first appointment of the day - thought I would get in and out, but it was slow moving. They were training a new person, which I understand takes time and I worked to be patient through it. Thedoctor was not good at hiding his feelings - walked into the office in a bad mood and it was clear to everyone, when I was seeing him he left and I could hear him scolding someone - just unprofessional. He also lacked listening skills - he just talked and didn't hear at all what I was saying so it took extra time closing out to get the things I needed.

Dr. Stadlen and his office staff were very friendly. I had to wait a little over 30 minutes to be seen by him. The only thing I did not like was that they would not give me my prescription until Ireturn for a re-check next week to make sure the contact lenses fit properly. Regardless of which lens' I buy, I still feel that I should have been given my prescription. I would still recommend him despite the wait time and prescription issue.
