I was early for my 9:00 am appointment and was able to be seen right away. Everyone was courteous and friendly. The assistant that I dealt with made accommodations for me because I have an issue with the test where the puff air into your eye, and saved it for last so that I wouldn't be skittish in the other testing. The doctor was very thorough in explaining possible causes of the floaters that I was seeing, and put me at ease. I will definitely be returning here for future follow up and any additional issues.

The first thing that really made this visit stand out from others is the amount of very modern, sophisticated technology. The office has a machine that measures all parts of your eyes without dialation! I went for a routine check up and was so surprised with the high level of care.

Dr. Hayashi was great! She seemed very knowledgeable and was incredibly patient in explaining everything. Her exam was remarkably thorough. I had a bit of a wait, but it she explained that she was covering for another doctor that day, so it does not seem like waiting would be a common issue. I will definitely go back for my next eye exam.

I brought my son here because he was having headaches which I believe is caused by eye straining. We were seen right away and the staff was excellent. The doctor listened to our concerns and she was very sweet. I highly recommend her.

The office practice is rather horrendous. This was not my first visit to their office. They ran me through like 10 different tests during my first visit before I saw the doctor. They did this without telling me the potential bill that I may have because I have a deductible insurance plan. I went in for red and dry eyes. Overall, my first visit went ok. This time around I went there again for the same reasons, but the conditioned worsened. I tell the staff that I would like to avoid a few tests that my insurance did not cover. They said they were are not able to bring up my what my insurance would cover. Also, they said they were not able to retrieve my previous bill to see what my insurance did not cover on my previous visit. There are things called computers, and they keep pretty good records. So I had to run through all the tests to see the doctor. If I refused the test, they tell me I could not see the doctor. I tell them I will sign a liability wavier. They tell me that they will have to talk it over. Somehow they are able to produce a liability waiver form about a minute later. I'm sure I am not the only one who did not want to run through 10 different tests and get charged for it before the doctor knows what is wrong with them. I saw the doctor, but she didn't really do anything. She gave me the same sample eye drops she did before and that was it. If you want to be run through a gauntlet of tests before you see the doctor, then this is the practice for you.

Dr. Hayashi is one of the most charismatic, caring, compassionate and knowledgeable doctors I've seen in a very long time. She did not "one-bam-thank-you-ma'am" me, as many doctors do, (you hear me NYC health care professionals?) She took the time to address all questions and concerns and thoroughly educate me despite having a sea of patients waiting for her. Her office conducted comprehensive tests and explained them without my inquiry. Her entire staff is warm and welcoming, with phenomenal bedside manner. I will most definitely be coming back.

Dr. Hayashi is wonderful! She really took the time to listen to my concerns and offered a number of potential solutions. I would definitely recommend Dr. Hayashi to my friends and family. Only downside is she is out of network so I had to pay a higher copay, but it was worth it.

This was the most ccomprehensive eye exam I've ever had. I was tested for all types of eye problems and given a number of samples of eye care items to try before I purchased them.

Excellent! Dr. Hayashi was very nice, easy to talk you, and very clear with her explanations.

Very personable and incredibly thorough. Her and her nurse spent an hour with me getting my history and trying to give me an accurate diagnosis. She also sent me home with a lot of free samples (since I suffer from horrible eye allergies) and told me to come back if I do not get better. I would highly recommend her!
