I went in for a doctors note to help get me a better monitor to help with eye fatigue. And they said they would get me a doctors note and I am still waiting for it a month later.

I am a long-time patient of Dr. Mary and always feel as if I am in good hands. Though we just met at today's appointment, I also thought highly of her colleague, Dr. Patel. Eileen S.

I had a great experience. Dr. Patel and Dr. Mary Szatkowski both examined me to confirm Dr. Patel's initial opinion, which made me feel like they are good at collaboration and are very thorough. I have viral pink eye and even though there isn't much they can do about it, Dr. Szatkowski still wanted to follow-up with me to make sure that nothing worsens or becomes concerning. I will definitely be going back here if I have another issue and will be recommending this practice to others!

The office is in a converted office space which feels a little weird. Notably, 3 months after my appointment, I still haven't received any billing, and every time I call they say they'll get back to me and they don't. My experience with the physician was positive and I got the care I needed.

Well organized office and professional medical care. I have been seeing Dr. Szatkowski several years now and have had a consistently good experience. My only concern about this practice is the strong scent used in the waiting area. It's overpowering, and could pose a risk for those who are sensitive to scent.

I've been going to Dr. Szatkowski for so long I can't remember when I started with her. That's how good she is. Other family members used to go to other provides, but now only see Dr. Szatkowski because of the great care she has given me.

I was very disappointed in the experience. I had to come to the office three different times for one trip. I booked the earliest appointment and the doctor came late into the office both days. I do not think she respects her clients or their time.

From check in to check out the entire office staff was very professional and courteous. I had an insurance question which was promptly answered in terms that were clear and concise. Dr. Szatkowski-Pritikin was friendly and provided detail in an easy to understand fashion. The office has state of the art equipment and provides services in addition to regular ophthalmic care. I found the laser treatment options enlightening and may take advantage of them in the near future. I highly recommend her for all your eye care.

Avoid Dr Mary at all costs. Her staff is extremely friendly but she lacks any bedside manner. Within five minutes of meeting her she told me my eyes were small, my pupils were large, and I'm too young to be having issues. In going through her tests, which seemed to cover all bases, I told her absolutely do NOT dilate my eyes. She agreed, and put some drops in that I thought were for another purpose. 20 minutes after leaving the office, my right eye was totally dilated. My calls to her office were met with extreme annoyance, amounting to 'it will go away in 15 minutes', which is false considering the type of eye drop she used. 4 hours later, the eye finally undialated. I will never go back here and I suggest you don't bother coming here.

Dr. Szatkowski-Pritikin seems competent, and spoke with me in a respectful manner. She struck me as patient and thorough. She's board certified, and has a quite a display of diplomas and other certificates on the office wall. I expect to return to her in the future, and would recommend her to others without hesitation. I arrived early to fill out my forms, was seen on time, had a routine eye exam, including refraction for eye glasses, and the whole process was finished 1 hour and ten minutes after my appointment time, pretty swift for opthalmology. The waiting area is strongly scented! If you are very sensitive to scents, this is not the right place for you.

Excellent experience. First visit to this Ophthalmologist's office. Attractive office and waiting room decor. Friendly and well organized staff. Really appreciated the thorough history taking and clinical inspection followed by appropriate diagnostic steps prior to discussion of treatment, and provision of the chosen approach. Dr. Mary Szatkowski-Pritikin, MD is extremely well qualified and obviously active in her specialty both nationally and internationally. She combines training and experience in internal medicine, ophthalmology, and ophthalmic surgery. More impressively, none of this has gone to her head. She communicates well and is attentive to patient needs.

She is an excellent doctor, very thorough and professional, and I recommend her from that standpoint. But honestly, although she claimed she had an emergency today, this was about the fourth straight appointment with her where i was on time and she kept me waiting for a lengthy time. What is the point of having an appointment? I'd believe the emergency story if it hadn't happened several times before. It's very disrespectful -- she is not the only one with a busy schedule.
