Dr. Sohn was very patient. She took the time to see how my prescription has changed since my last visit and did not rush into prescribing me the same contact lenses. She had amazing bedside manners and was very knowledgable.

I don’t feel comfortable with the results of the eye exam. She stated that I wasn’t a candidate for contacts that maybe in the future but in my previous eye exams that I get every year the doctors have gave methe option to get contacts. This is my first eye doctor in New York not sure if I will be returning or referring anyone here.

I hadn't had an eye exam for as long as I could remember so I really had no idea what to expect. I showed up a half hour before my appointment and they took me right away. All members of thestaff that greeted me were extremely friendly. Check in was painless and not the countless forms you usually expect when visiting a doctors office (especially for the first time). Dr. Sohn was so friendly, knowledgable, and patient. After the exam the employees at the counter were very helpful and patient with me picking out my new frames. I highly recommend Dr. Sohn and all staff members at GCT Optical.

Maybe she was having an off day. It wasn't helpful appointment. I guess i was expected to buy glasses from the store. I was looking to meet with the doctor. Get an eye exam. When i said I would not bepurchasing glasses i was dismissed. I had to remind the store clerk for my prescription. i think it should be clear that this is a store front as opposed to a regular eye exam doctor.
