I only went for a routine eye exam, but Dr. Borodkin was very thorough and explained every test and result completely.It was refreshing to have a doctor spend quality time explaining the process and even the “math” he used to calculate my eye pressure based on the fact that I am a LASIK patient with thinner corneas. Highly recommend him!

Dr Borodkin was fantastic! He should consider switching out one of his receptionists (one of them (Evelyn Pena) was chatting on the phone with her friend and didn't tell me that doctor was ready to see me and i waited inthe waiting room for 30 minutes until the Dr called reception to ask where I was. I could have gotten in without a wait at all if it weren't for this oversight. Evelyn was also very rude when I gave her feedback post my appointment. The other receptionist apologized but she did not. Really not acceptable behavior.)

I arrived a bit early and was seen a few minutes after my scheduled start time. Dr. Borodkin was very friendly and thorough. I haven't had an eye exam that was this thorough in a very long time. He answered myquestions and did not seem rushed. As a nice plus, his office where the exam took place was large and very nice, with a large window and chandelier!
