Friendly staff and informative experience
Dr. Ahdoot is fine, but some of his staff are not very sharp. The individual who administered the machine tests told me that not taking off eye makeup can "break your face" - not even kidding! I also wish the office would actually look at the insurance information provided in Zocdoc - as others have commented, I had to provide it all upon arrival, which wasted a good 30 minutes or so.
Very professional Doctor, efficient and knowledgeable. Good staff.
This actually what i was looking for..very professional.I have been to many clinic..this is the best i can say.Dr.Micheal was very helpful.
The wait time was inexcusably long. I provided all of my "new patient" info through ZocDoc, including scans of my insurance card, but for some reason had to handwrite out all of the exact same info upon arriving at the doctor's office. They also had not begun running any of my insurance info based on what was submitted to ZocDoc, so I had to wait while they did that, too. I'm not sure why this info was required to make an appointment if they weren't going to bother to look at it until I arrived, and make me fill it all out again. 9 other patients who arrived after me saw the doctor before I did, and I waited almost an hour and half for a 2 minute consultation. Really upset that they wasted my time. The doctor was fine, but the staff have ensured I will not be back.

Amazing doctor and staff.. Totally overbooked. Got there at 4:20 for 4:30 appointment and left at 6:30
Very good service
It is always a good experience.
Very qualified doctor.please visit and see yourself.
Truly caring and sharing with the patient, I was impressed.
It was excellent, all of the stuff are very serious and helpful , I really like it
My visit with Dr. Ahdoot was very pleasant. He was keen to questions and answered them with intelligence. Highly recommended.
I'm too much happy about doctor.his nice parson.
My visit was very pleasant and professional. I highly recommend visiting his office
I thought that the doctor/assistant exam was thorough and that the equipment was modern and high tech. The only downside, was the doctor entered the room and didn't introduce himself and totally ignored me the parent upon coming into the room. Please he spoke with his back turned and over his shoulder. His social skills are lacking, but he seemed knowledgeable and the information helped my child a lot.
Yes all are good
Very professional and straight to the point. Staff was very friendly and helpful also. Highly recommended.
It's better to smile with patient. Not exact on the appointment time.
Walking into his office was like time traveling to the 1980's. All of his equipment is very outdated. The staff was very disorganized and they shuffled me around from person to person because everyone was too busy.
I ended up having an emergency situation and Dr.Ahdoot made sure to get me into a specialist asap.
Staff was nice and courteous. It was a quick visit.
Staff is super friendly and the doctors bedside manner was excellent. We are definitely switching ophtomologists
The staff is really nice but the doctor had bad attitude and he never smiles.
Very friendly and helpful
Quick, pleasant, informative appointment.
I had a good experience as a first time patient. I was called close to my appointment time and the doctor was very thorough.
I was about confused about the roles of the people who treated me before I saw the doctor. It would have been better if they had introduced their roles. Sometimes I got there names, which was good, but consistently getting their names and roles would've been better. Also if they explained what they were doing in e.g giving eye drops.
Dr. Ahdoot is a very clear and supportive doctor. His office staff are all very efficient and kind.
Great doctor, straight to the point and i felt comfortable with his diagnosis and treatment. Great office space, clean and beautiful.
It was ok and nice I got a medication and relief of stress and worry I had about my eyes and vision.
His staff was great -- friendly and helpful, good sense of humor. Dr. Ahdoot had minimal involvement - popped in late in the appointment, did a cursory examination (the quickest I have EVER had at the eye doctor). Ok I guess, as all I really needed was to get new contact lenses. But if I had an actual problem or concern, even as basic as needing a stronger prescription, I would definitely go elsewhere.
I found the doctor to be very clear, thorough and professional. His staff was very efficient and very courteous. I got in right away, but this may have been due partly to the fact that I had the first appointment of the day.
Not comfortable. The staffs are professional but NOT friendly. Doctor himself a bit cut & dry as well. He seems skilled but more to the point rather explaining OR building rapport specially with new patient. I hope he realizes it & overcome it in long run.
This office has a lot of really nice and professional staff and a lot of machines for different test, complete evaluation by MD. I'm very happy
I really like this doctor. I've been to him a few times and that is saying a lot because I have a hard time finding doctors I like and I have already returned to him three times. I'm sending my husband to him. I've read some negative reviews but I haven't encountered any of that as of yet.
He really does know his field of work. I am happy I finally know what was going on in my eyes! I feel taken care of. Maybe he can lighten up a little -He was straight forward and not really super friendly but who needs that qualification of bedside manner when you are really knowledgeable and tell the person like it is. That's what I needed. I will keep him as my eye doctor for sure.
the online appt was easy to make and i got confirmation of my appt within an hour. i was also seen immediately at my appt time which rarely happens, but maybe it was because i was the first appt of the day.
Friendly, quick, and knowledgeable. I definitely recommend him!
Dr. Ahdoot was very professional and efficient. In addition, the staff was friendly. I will be using him as my regular eye doctor.
It was great, everyone was really nice and helpful. The whole process was really fast.
He explained what my eye problems were.And told me what could be done to improve it.His staff was very professional and the visit gave me peace of mind.
It was quick and simple, the office is very clean and very well kept .
I went to eye specialist I was there in time and they gave me paper work and I did that 2 persons was before me and then my turn I was done in 40 minutes. That's great Back home in 30 minutes. That's awesome
He Was very profesional and he knew god stuff very good
Very nice staff members. Great doctor.
Treatment was precise and my eyes are much better now. Excellent doctor, goes directly to the heart of the problem. Will recommend to anyone.
The staff at Dr. Ahdoot's office are gracious and very helpful. Dr. Ahdoot is very professional and explains everything so that I can understand.
Dr. Ahdoot is awesome! He makes you feel completely at ease especially if your someone like me who is really afraid to have someone roaming around in their eyes. Best ophthalmologist I've been to.. ever!
Everything was perfect, great service and a beautiful office and dr Michael Ahdoot was amazing.
Nice doctor .nt very friendly but still good.
Very thorough and uses the latest technology.
Quick and painless. He was thorough and answered my questions. His staff is great. Efficient, attentive and super friendly.
Always a pleasure and extremely professional. Never a long wait.
It was a good, quick experience - very nice and spacious office, professional staff, and Dr. Ahdoot was knowledgeable and efficient. I was only there for a check up and to get a new prescription, but I would definitely recommend.
It was fine.
It was good and very helpful
He is the most nice Dr I every met. He lessen what I have problem , I recommend to every one .thanks you DR
He's a good doctor
Visiting Dr. Ahdoot is the worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. He was arrogant, insulting and made the medical experience very uncomfortable overall. I HIGHLY encourage patients not to book him.
Very professional and straight forward doctor. He explained in a very detailed way to my mother about the procedure she has to have done. The staff at the office OMG!! They are awesome!!! So nice and caring! I highly recommend Dr. Ahdoot...
I was seen fairly quick after booking the appointment with a day of anticipation.
The doctor himself and the nurse were very nice, but one of the office staff was pretty rude and off-putting. I forgot my insurance card, and instead of trying to help me find a solution, she glared at me and gave me one word answers. I just spoke to the other person behind the desk who was nice and helpful.
Nice doctor, explains everything throughly even drawing diagrams for better understanding. Wait was kind of long considering I got to my appt 15 minutes earlier and was not called in until 10 mintutes after my scheduled time, however the doctor was very prompt once I came in.
Love the doctor very trust worthy can't wait to see him again
The visit was very mediocre. There was a long wait even with an appointment. The doctor was very dismissive and did not seem to care for feedback or to hear your concerns. He did the regular eye check-up. At the end, he did not ask if I had any other questions or concerns that he may need to address-- overall, I felt that he is not the doctor for my needs.
Dr.Ahdoot was very professional,knowledgeable and attentive.the staff and medical assistants were attentive,respected my privacy,discrete and warm.very clean facility,and dr. Ahdoot fully explained my diagnosis and preventions and such.WILL DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS FACILITY.
He's good and staff are nice
My optometrist recommended me to Dr. Ahdoot due to a more complex problem that she said I may have had that needed an opthamologist's opinion. Ahdoot was her recommendation because he was just a few train stops over from my neighborhood. He asked me what made me think that I needed to come to an opthamologist, and did I know that he primarily did surgery - spoke to me condescendingly. The impression I got was that I was wasting his precious time. He knew I was a referral, therefore it was not as if I walked in to his office just because. He was thorough, in his examination, however this isn't the first time a doctor - male and female - has treated me this way. It's as if the rest of the world are morons because they don't hold medical degrees.
Very kind staff, clean office and facility. The doctor and the nurses were courteous and helpful. Overall, a great experience.
Very nice experience Great staff and very professional dr and office
He was very helpful and explained my diagnosis clearly. I highly recommend him to anyone.
My visit with the doctor was good. He is very professional and thorough. However, I really had a long wait time.
very clean clinic. Doctor was very polite and treated me well in all aspect. i will recommend Dr. Ahdoot and will come back again.
Que me parecia muy correcto y serio en su trabajo...
Welcoming feeling, knowledgeable and attentive.
Dr. Ahdoot was helpful, timely, and incredibly professional. His staff was very kind and accommodating. I will certainly be returning to his office and recommending him to by friends & family.
Very intelligent and explanatory, if a bit cold.
Doctor michael ahdoot was really a good doctor... He had the patience of listening to what the patient problem is and explaining it to the patient.. This is an important part I ve seen doctors who dont really listens to the patient problem and tell them its this and that without tring to know the patient problem.
very clean facility. very professional. though the walls in the waiting area could use a touch up. holes in the wall dont look good.
On Saturday, it's crowded...
Dr. Ahdoot is very professional and treats his patients in a good manner. He explains everything clearly and tells you where you are standing in regards to your vision health. He uses the latest techniques and equipment which make the process easier, faster and less painful. The staff are very kind. I definitely recommend him.
My visit with Dr. Ahdoot went very good. He was professional and gave me a further recommendation to another facility for further tests. I was pleased with his services.
Great!! very serious, straight to the point, polite, quick, AND HE IS NOT IN A RUSH TO KICK YOU OUT OF HIS OFFICE!!
his office was very clean and his receptionist was super nice... i was seen immediately and didn't have to wait more than 10 minutes!
Took care in making sure he addressed all of my questions and issues and explained things very well. Office staff is great as well.
Dr. Ahdoot had been my eye doctor for approximately 3 years and one of the best I've had. I never had to wait, the girls in the office were always helpful and the doctor was patient and kind. My first visit was for an emergency eye infection and the doctor and his staff took really good care of me. I moved from NY but seriously considered going back to Dr. Ahdoot for yearly eye exams: he's that good.
Recommendable, and willing to see the Dr. again. Nice,and Helpful Crews and Comfortable Clean Place.
Took ages to be seen, when I was seen I was rushed in and out by the doctor. The nurses were all lovely, however.
Well caring doctor and well cleaned clinic
The doctor is very professional and knowledgeable. He even showed me a picture of my retina to explain to me exactly what he was talking about. The staff are very friendly and make you feel comfortable.
dr.Ahdoot is super nice and always listens to what you have tosay
Not a long wait period. Helpful staff. Easygoing doctor.
Fantastic experience overall. I have seen 3 different eye doctors in Manhattan for a problem I have been having for over 6 months. None were able to figure out my problem. Dr. Ahdoot took the time to listen to me, asked directed questions, diagnosed my chronic problem and started me on the correct treatment (I feel better already). His office is beautiful and state of the art - unlike any other doctor's office I have ever seen. I'm so glad I went to him and I will keep going back and send my friends and family too!
Nice, professional and quick.
Great! Best ophthalmologist!
I received prompt, curtious and state of the art medical care. Dr. Ahdoot took great care in making sure that I understood my medical condition and how to treat it. I found him easy to talk to, very professional and reassuring.
It was my first visit and I am very delighted by the service.Unlike other places I didn"t have to wait long for my check up.I have second appointment too:)
Very professional.Dr Ahdoot gives very good advice, he wants the patient to feel comfortable. All the staff is also very friendly.
Excellent. Covered every detail. Clean non clinic type of environment.
First impression is lasting impression. Dr. Ahdoot's office promotes a very personable and professional climate, which is step #1 to any healing process. He uses modern equipment and seeks answers to the unknown, with further inquiry. He appears to be an honorable optomologist.
Very professional and knowledgeable doctor. I highly recommend him to others.
For me it was a great first visit and Great experience I'm glad I went there
The whole staff was very pleasant and caring.
He's very professional and to the point, which I can appreciate! The staff there are very friendly and make you feel welcomed. I actually have another appointment with him soon and feel happy about it. I'd definitely recommend him.
It's probably the nicest Opthalmologist office I have been too. The staff were very friendly and approachable.
Very professional and always on time.
I felt Dr. Ahdoot was professional and caring. His staff was very friendly and I would recommend him to others.
Very Professional,explained in detail everything I needed to know and to watch out for to protect my vision.Went over my entire health history and assured me my vision is getting the best, of the best in care. That's a great feeling.
Great, relevant,helpful.Doctor and his team : good professional ethics .
Dr ahdoot and his staff were great .
Very knowledgable. Took ample time to explain, very friendly and had my best interest at hand.
The staffs are very nice and friendly. The doctor is very straightforward and honest I felt. The place is clean too!
Very professional service. Thanks
I think doctor is very professional and assistants very helpful
The doctor was quite pleasant, both he and his staff were efficient and thorough in obtaining my history and in answering my questions. I was able to see him the same day that I made my appointment; his office is very clean and modern, and his equipment is state of the art.
He is ok, I saw all 5 start reviews on the site and decided to go, yes, I will go back just because is close to me and is not that bad, but my experience was average, he seems in the hurry try to rush things up when I asked about prescription.
It was very good. He was very nice
highly knowledgeable and friendly. A+ doctor.
I thought that the appointment flexibility was good, the support staff were not courteous at all. The front-desk staff ignored to let me know that there was a leak in the ceiling where I was seated and yet cared enough to notify another patient when that patient approached to sit there. The front office was "COLD". Neither the office staff, the doctor assistant nor the doctor greeted me with a simple GOOD EVENING, my name is so and so and I am the so and so. This was extremely UNACCEPTABLE to me. I hope NO OTHER patient is EVER subjected to their anti-social behavior of this nature. Regarding the doctor's examination: The doctor did the routine exams.
he is the best
nice, kind and professional
I had a complete eye exam done and it didnt take any longer than 20 minutes for me, I dont have any major problems with my eyes, so it was a routine checkup. The doctor was very professional and the assistants were nice. I was there early so I was seen close to my appointment time. I had a pleasant experience, dont have anything to complain about.
It was nice meeting the doctor and he did excellent job. I will recommend him to all of my friends.
it is exelente experience,i am glad to visit this eye doctor!
very good doctor and very good environment. environment better than manhattan doctors offices i have seen.
doctor has all the state of the art tools, I saw a color photo of the inside of my eyes, very cool!
very nice person made you feel cared for.
Very nice guy. Uses top of the line equipment.
