I've seen Dr. Cohn for three years now, and like what he does well enough to keep coming back. Office visits are handled in an efficient way and the work done by the front desk staff to talk with insurance carriersis done well. While the office space could do with a bit of sprucing up, the important part of having my eyes tested goes very well each time. No fancy frills - and that is fine with me.

I was really happy with it - he keeps things simple, and I got help for my new prescription right away. Also, the shop didn't do any 'upselling' with me, happy that I'll get my new glasses soon

I wouldn’t recommend this doctor or book to see him again. The exam itself was extremely rushed and his bedside manner was abrasive and confrontational, using language that I found to be very inappropriate with a borderline misogynistic attitude.All in all, I found him extraordinarily offensive—especially for an NYC medical professional and someone others have reviewed so highly. I would like to say that his staff are amazing, though. I didn’t catch her name, but the medical assistant working at the front did a fabulous job navigating processing my insurance.

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 placingmy 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 wouldsend 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 anddidn'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.

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 indetail. 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 untilthe 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.
