After the long wait, she refused to listen to the reason I was there and tried to upsell me more servicesthe whole time. When I refused, she wouldn't drop it and eventually told me I have no common sense. She insisted on trying every contact in my eyes and was very rough putting them in and taking them out. In fact, she did such a bad job, one contact was lost in my eye and after digging around, she pulled it out ripping it in half and then dug around for the other half. It was sooooo painful. Finally, she did what I came for and I left. NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!! Rude and doesn't listen, unprofessional, and not good at what she does. She asked me if I use tampons (at the eye doctor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and then lectured me about them. Crazy!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Levy was very thorough and reassured me about the health of my eyes. I thought her office staff were quitehelpful and professional. I have not had such a thorough explanation at an eye exam in many years. I would definitely recommend Dr. Levy. She is an excellent Optometrist.

Prior to that she practiced in Manhattan and has been recognized as an internationally accomplished lecturer. Eye exams are optimized under the care of Dr. Levy by the use of new technology to examine retinas without eye drops or to detect precursors to glaucoma.

This was the worst dr experience i have ever had in my life. She and her office over-billed and held my prescription hostage until the bills are settled. When I reminded them that withholding patient record is against the rules ofconduct of the board of optometry, her office ladies informed me that all of sudden that Dr. Levy was out of the country and my chart is missing. VERY SHADY PRACTICE. Bad reviews for her are all over the internet (see yelp)... i wish I had done my research before blindingly pick an OD off of ZOCDOC. Shame on you!
