Fantastic Dr.! She’s so fast but does not make you feel rushed. Going to the eye doctor is torture for me because I have such sensitive eyes. This was the first time I ever felt comfortable. The only issue was when I was picking out glasses they told me they don’t take my VSP. They only take VSP from two employers in NYC even though they list it in general on what insurance they take. Thought this was odd and should explicitly write this on ZocDoc and their website.

Dr. Mary Wu was very nice. The office was accommodating as I arrived about an hour early to my appt and they saw me right away without a problem. Dr. Wu was very thorough in her exam and helped me with my dry eyes and form I brought in for completion. I will definitely continue to follow up there for my eye care

I have been seeing Dr. Wu for 3 years now and it is always a pleasant & thorough examination and virtually no wait. Reservations are true reservations.....not like some other offices where 5 people have the same reservation. Highly recommend.

Dr. Wu is fantastic. She always tells me exactly what she is about to do with my eyes. She also asks if I have questions at various points throughout the appointment. She did a very thorough examination of my eyes, and also spent time explaining my bill to me.

Terrific. Dr Wu not only handled all the needs of my appointment but she really listened to what my issues were and addressed them. She is friendly, efficient, thorough and professional. And the rest of the staff at Optyx is great. I didn’t catch the name of the woman who checked me in and out and helped me choose frames but she is a gem. Great experience start to finish.

She was just wonderful. She was personable and was able to sit down and talk with me when I had financial concerns. She also wanted to make sure I got all I needed for my eye health but was very careful with pricing and finding the most affordable choice.

Dr. Wu is very friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. She answered all my questions and did not push any products. She did the exam in a professional and relaxed manner. She uses a non-puff air device to check for glaucoma, and it was so nice not to have that puff air!

They charge fitting fees for contacts which aren’t covered by insurance and need to be re-done when renewing your prescription. They don’t call you back when waiting for contacts to come in.
