Prompt, professional, and pleasant. Highly recommended.
Dr Okochi was very thorough and professional.
I went for a routine checkup, having not had my eyes examined in several years. I found Dr. Okochi and his staff to be very friendly and knowledgeable. Will go back for the next checkup.
very professional,and welcoming
Was seen within 3 minutes of checking in. Nurse was thorough and gentle - did not baby me through anything which I liked (because I get a little antsy about things involving my eyes) but was not cold by any means. Dr. Okochi was very nice and explained everything well and told me exactly what he saw and suggested. Overall a quick appointment!
it was great. Dr. Okochi actually saw that they didn't actually except my insurance and waived my fee.
I went in to get contacts and it seemed like a great office when you walk in. The only times I've used contacts were when I had colored contacts in high school so when they asked if I needed help, I said no. It would cost more money for a "tutorial" from their specialist. Then Dr Okochi said, try it yourself and if you need help a specialist would need to come in, and tried it a couple of times and I needed help and then a specialist came in without me asking for one. I finally get it with her help so I was grateful, until I paid my visit and I had to pay for a specialist to come in without me realizing that. I was so upset, I paid for it and left. I had to pay for the specialist and my co-pay.
Best doctor I've visited in the city!
He was very professional and my daughter was seen right away. Everyone was very nice and patient. Would definitely recommend Dr. Okachi to others.
Knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating, and punctual. Extremely nice staff, and done with appointment in less than 30 minutes. Will definitely be going back!
Absolutely loved Dr. Okochi. I went on my lunch break and was seen in under 10 minutes. Fastest appointment ever, I was totally satisfied. He's also a really great doctor, very professional but welcoming and friendly. Definitely recommend.
I haven't had an eye exam since I was a kid and Dr. Okochi was awesome. He kept everything simple and to the point.
My third annual visit and the practice remains very professional.
Professional, friendly and knowledgeable.
I LOVE this place!!! Thisbis ky second time coming, and smooth as usual..from check in to check out, this is a smoothly run office! I also love that they accept both me and my daughters ins.
Great experience. Not a long wait, nice reception staff, and wonderful bedside manner.
Great doctor, super helpful and kind.
Great office, lovely and friendly staff.
Assistants were really nice and professional, they were very understanding when I got a little nauseous from the pupil dilatation drops. The doctor was kind and friendly and to the point. He was professional and was not trying to sell me random stuff like so many other doctors out there. Great experience!
The staff were very professional and polite. They helped me set up my Lasik appointment & did all the hand holding I needed. Best eye doctor visit ever!
Very professional, but also friendly. Dr. Okochi also diagnosed a long-running but unexplained vision issue that I have been experiencing for most of my life. Their technology was also VERY modern and made the check-up a lot faster and more accurate.
Doctor was great but I was told they accepted United Healthcare Vision (which is why I chose them), but found out when I arrived that I had to use my medical insurance instead, which caused me to pay a higher copay. Will not be returning.
Overall Dr. Okochi was pleasant for the 3 minutes I met with him. I came in specifically for Contact Lenses, which I specified in my "reason for visit but ended only only getting an eye exam. I ended up shelling out for the exam, but was left on my own to order and receive my contacts. They are not actually in network with any vision plans to get eye glasses or contacts. Now I am forced to go to another eye doctor or order the contacts from 1-800 Contacts out of pocket and wait to be reimbursed. I wish I knew that they are only in network for medical visits.
My 9 year old said that this office had incredible customer service from the receptionist to the doc. That's a huge compliment from her.
Very thorough checkup (annual eye exam) with his assistant before seeing the doctor. The doctor was super friendly and polite. I've never seen a doctor with more energy. He took his time with my results and I did not feel rushed even though I had a lot of questions for him.
Personable, professional & knowledgeable.
Would continue to trust this guy with my eyes.
He is a great doctor!
Always courteous and friendly.
He is so nice and made me feel comfortable.
It was very chic and friendly.
I have had some really bad doctors at Chelsea Eye, but Okochi is great and I highly recommend him.
The eye-examination technology has advanced since my last visit and I felt that the exam was very thorough. Dr. Okochi is very easy-going and took his time.
prompt, efficient, and great! would recommend
The staff and doctor were really nice. The doctor took time to explain everything and to answer all my questions. I didn't feel rushed at all. He recommended a good (and cheap) place to buy eyeglasses which I appreciated. I would definitely recommend and will go back!
Very good doctor but the office was cramped and none of the front desk nurses made an effort to say Dr Okochi was running behind schedule. My appt was at 4:15 and I didn't see the doctor until after 5:25. The nurse who did the initial visit was very engaging and made you feel comfortable in your visit.
Very thorough, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Will be going back!
The facility was great, and every person I dealt with from the receptionist to the doctor's assistant to the doctor was terrific!
He was knowledgeable and made sure to ask if I had any questions or concerns.
Very knowledgeable and takes his time to listens to your concerns!
There is a $75 refraction fee (not covered by insurance) to get a new prescription. Apparently this is normal (?) but I don't remember ever paying it before. Just fyi.
Great service and very thorough . I would highly recommend Dr. Nna Okochi!
Really personable and answers questions thoroughly. Highly recommended
Dr. Okochi is a great doctor! Smart, thorough and has a great bedside manner. Highly recommended.
Dr. Okochi was very knowledgeable and nice, and the whole staff was courteous and helpful as well.
Best eye doctor I've been to! My only complain was the wait - but it ended up being less time than I thought, and the waiting room was pleasant to sit in. The tech who checked my eyes was nice and friendly, and Dr. Okochi was professional, warm, and friendly. Highly recommend.
The appointment was quick, but he gave me the opportunity to ask questions and spent time answering them. It was the perfect combination of efficient and caring/considerate!
office is very nice, Dr. Okochi was great - informative but didn't drone on - overall great experience and will return. Only negative is that I was early for my appointment, had completed all paperwork at home, and had to wait 30+ minutes past my appointment time.
Great experience, professional staff, nice office
He was fantastic. Wish every medical professional had his courtesy and patience. He explained everything to me in lay terms. Tremendous doctor.
Great doctor and nice guy!!!
It was good
Lovely office, staff was friendly, Dr Okochi and his assistant were both funny and kind. Will come back next year for my eye exam.
The office is friendly and efficient and I really trust Dr Okochi's diagnosis and practice methods. Highly recommended.
I was very happy with the staff, facility, Dr. Okochi and the overall courteous service I received. I was concerned that it might be a bit pretentious since they also do cosmetic work there too lol but, everything was above what I expected.
This was one of the best eye doctor visits of my life. Thorough, not stressful, and not trying to sell me in to a higher prescription that I don't need. They don't sell contacts/lenses in the office, so there's no pressure there, and the doctor was incredibly cool.
During my visit, the office staff were very pleasant and efficient and Dr. Okochi was prompt, thorough and informative. I would definitely recommend.
It didn't feel like an eye doctor's office but more like a cosmetic surgery which I didn't mind at first. However, it only gets worse when I had to wait for an hour without anyone telling me why and any pre-caution. It seems like they have a lot of patience who have been there long but I don't think I will go back again after this first experience. You get better treatment anywhere in NYC but why would I go back and wait an hour?
Very polite, friendly and funny.
Very nice staff. They were very thorough and really took care of me.
The office is awesome, super modern and spacious. Everyone is very professional and friendly. Dr. Okochi was excellent - easy to talk to, friendly and personable. I highly recommend him!
He was very friendly, provided valuable information about my vision and options for correction. I would definitely recommend to others.
Great service! I actually arrived about 20 minutes early and was taken in for my eye exam and already out the door just minutes after my original appointment time. Very helpful!
It was very pleasant and professional.
I really liked Dr. Okochi, he was very professional, kind, and I didn't feel like he was rushing me even though there were a lot of people waiting. The only thing that surprised me was that there was no contacts or glassed on premises they only have a website for contacts or give you a perscription to get your glasses elsewhere.
Dr. Okochi was very professional and friendly. He listened to my questions/concerns and explained difficult concepts clearly.
Dr. Nna Okochi is very professional and will answer any questions or concerns honestly.
