This office is trying to push their products on you. When/if you don't want to buy their marked up frames, they no longer care about you - it is not as much a medical office as a store. The examination did not feel thorough - it seemed like a front for their sales pitch. After you pay for your appointment and ask for your prescription, they say they will email your prescription- but they do not do so. I had to call multiple times to get my script from them. FYI, it violates Federal Trade Commission rules for an eye doctor to not give you your prescription after you paid for an examination - and on Yelp, many patients have had extreme difficulty getting their script from this office. The office is also dingy and sketchy underground. DO NOT come to this office.

Really friendly & explained everything so well & answered any questions I had. Even talked to my mom on the phone to explain the importance of the lenses I needed.

They are basically going to try and up-sell glasses well above what your insurance covers. Do not get taken advantage of and go somewhere else. You’ve been warned. I somehow paid hundreds of dollars above what my insurance covers because she gave me premium everything without telling me a thing why.

They doctors itself is great. What I did not appreciate was the fact they told me to come in earlier as they had a 5pm slot open. I show up at 5pm only to find 4 people ahead of me. There is no way I was going to wait. I do not appreciate my time being wasted or the fact that they lied to me.

All I wanted was an eye exam, but my appointment turned into an uncomfortably hard sell on glasses, lenses, etc. I would love to find an eye doctor who just gives an exam and let's you walk free.

I felt that the office was far too pushy to up sell me on products instead of actually listening to me and treating me for the reason I came in for. Very disappointing and I would not return or recommend.

I was prescribed the wrong prescription. After a week, I called back and the workers there "advised" me to try it for a few weeks more as the contact lenses were different. I eventually just went back to my other doc and as I thought, the prescription was incorrect. The office that Dorfman operates out of called to schedule my annual visit. I responded with a complaint but with no response... overall i think he got it wrong but it's the after service that even worse... i wore bad contacts for almost 10 months

No wait. The staff is helpful. They do not push their product line on you at all, which is appreciated. They send scripts to you via email so you always have it. Price was reasonable for contacts and glasses script for out of pocket customers. Dr. Dorfman is very professional and finished the exam in 15 minutes.

He was nice enough but completely unhelpful when I had a problem that required a specialist (yet was unwilling to refer me to a specialist). He just kept having me come back and clearly couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. I was also annoyed that I was switched to another doctor for my follow up without anyone alerting me to the fact that this was happening.

In terms of expertise, he seemed liked an ok doctor. He didn't didn't blow me away, but I didn't walk away thinking he was a complete idiot either. I would never go back because I never got the feeling that he or his staff had my best interest at heart. It seemed as if their goal was to sell me designer frames at premium prices, not to make sure my eyes were healthy.
