Michael was very nice and personable. However the facility itself felt grimey. Additionally, when I was getting my eyes examined the chin placement that usually has disposable thin paper to place ones chin on has none. So I essentially was placing my chin down on something that tons of other strangers have used as well which felt gross.

The lower stars was intended only to stress the unprofessional behavior of the staff. One of the employees who kept answering my call regarding my contact lens prescription that I needed to be sent to me. She kept saying she would send immediately but after I 5th call she hung up on me( maybe she does not know how to put people on hold ) the next unprofessional manner was from the office manager who did not acknowledge the mistake ( maybe honest one ) of the other person and made some lame excuses without directly answering to my concerns. I saw Dr. Cohn only once. All of these people I mentioned were not really rude or anything but I would say incompetent. Dr. Cohn was also a nice guy but I was not much confident in him.

Desk staff were inattentive and rude, also made me take out my contacts almost immediately so I could sit in the waiting area unable to see anything around me. Dr Cohn was fine, seemed to mostly speak from a script and didn't ask me more than two questions about myself near the end of the appointment. I really liked Moscot across the street but my new insurance doesn't cover it. Looks like I'm still looking for a satisfying replacement.

Had an eye problem and the doctor stressed that he couldn't really help me because this was my first time seeing him. I've never had this problem anywhere else before. The appointment felt hostile..will not be back.

I saw Dr. Cohn for the first time and would absolutely recommend him. He was very professional, knowledgable, thorough, and to the point. He took the time to explain my previous vs. my new prescription and answered all my questions in detail. He is allowing me to test a set of contacts with my new prescription for a few days, to ensure I am fully comfortable with them. I've been wearing contacts/ glasses for over 15 years and this is the first time a Dr. has cared to walk me through why their recommending the prescription they're recommending.

I think Michael is wonderful, he was right 8 months ago about how my eyes would adjust to my computer glasses. Then he said they would crave progressives which he felt I needed but thought I should wait to buy until the time was right. He was 100%. Now I am back for contacts because I don't always want to wear glasses. Staff is super as well.
