She was very detailed with the information that she shared with me regarding my son who had an appointment with her. She told me what I need to look for going forward that I should be concerned about and how totreat in addition to what not to be concerned about. I've never been to an eye doctor before so I have nothing to compare with but she seems very thorough with her examination.

Dr. Shoshani was great. She explained everything she was doing & did her best to fix my problem. From check in to the end was a total of 2 hours but they do warn you of that once at the office.

The wait time is absolutely insane. They shouldn’t overbook their office. The office itself is kind of cramped and if you have multiple children needing to be seen by the doctor, you will be on top of each other. Doctor Shoshanirushed a lot since she did have a lot of patients.

My appointment time was 4 and I juggled my schedule and got there by 4 after making sure that we will be seen without long wait. We sat there till 4:50 without any new pts forms given to us. They keptsaying you are next and since we are emergency, we should be seen shortly. I will not recommend this office due to lengthy waits time and office was old and stuffy.

I would have gone at a time where I had more time. I did not know it was a Pediatrics Specialty Office and new patients appointments would be up to 2 hours. Since it was a Sunday am, the office wasfull of children who were out of school so my time wait for everything took me 3hour & 45 min.. I would have liked that info on the Zocdoc to have adjusted my time better! Dr Mina was very efficient and competent. I would recommend her and tell my friends when NOT to set an apt!
