Don't bother filling out the ZocDoc intake forms because this office will still require you to complete their own forms. I was brought in by a tech for a series of eye tests about 30 minutes after my appt time and then I saw Dr. Lisitsyn a little over half an hour after those tests. My eyes were dilated at the end of the doc's initial exam and about twenty minutes later I was given a field of vision test by the tech - and I could barely see the flashing lights. When I asked if the dilation was the reason that I was struggling with the FOV test I was told that it had nothing to do with it. When I saw the doc for the dilated exam he commented on my FOV test and said that I should have been wearing my glasses when it was administered. Anyway, Dr. Lisitsyn was very nice, friendly, and thorough (except for the FOV thing, which was just weird). The office staff were lovely even after my grouchy side emerged when I had to fill out their forms. I was impressed that there were bilingual staff who also spoke Spanish and (I think) Russian; very cool. I also ordered new glasses, which I was told will take 2-3 weeks to come in because of some snow that's expected here tomorrow and next week; usually it takes 7-10 biz days. Seems like quite a long wait to me. So that was my experience in a nutshell. You can decide whether or not to go - and if you do then set aside extra time because you'll probably be there a while.
The doctor very professional but girls that work there very nasty and unprofessional. The waiting was very long.
Prior to my appointment the receptionist called to remind me of my appointment. That was a nice gesture. I went to see Dr. Lisitsyn because my glasses broke and I was experiencing discomfort to bright lights. He checked my eyes and made me feel confident with his evaluation. Gave me some recommendations for my new pair of glasses and gave me some discounts on my glasses. I could not be anymore pleased with doctor. He was polite, understandable and patient. I recommend him to anyone.
Professional and quick !
Very professional and informative
They completely overbooked appointments; I waited a ridiculous amount of time even though I was early, had all my paperwork filled out beforehand, etc. Bed-side manner was horrible. When I described an issue I was experiencing, he said "that makes no sense". Well...that is not productive. They performed a test prior on me PRIOR to seeing the doctor that required medical insurance (learned at check-out) because it was out of the scope of eye insurance for a regular exam even though I did not ask for it and was very clear that I only wanted a routine eye exam to order contacts.
great doctor. the staff was friendly and helpful. the doctor was very thorough and explained everything to me. went very quickly and only waited about 15 mins which was great.
Excellent as always
Awesome! Really personable and knowledgeable about his work!
The office was over-crowded and noisy and they were obviously overbooked, as I sat for more than an hour after my appointment time before I was seen by an assistant, who administered several tests. Then I waited another 15 minutes before I was finally seen by the doctor. He was capable and exact with his diagnosis.
The wait was very very long, I was waiting for two hrs which was a disapointment but over all everything else was okay
Waited a little bit long...
Very kind and informative. Got right to the point.
it was great
Great doctor. I will recommen him to my friends. Thanks
It was just a standard eye exam, but honestly, I was just really annoyed about the hour long wait. I would have understood if it were busy, but the receptionist told me the doctor was "out to lunch," which I thought was very rude and inconsiderate of a patient's time. In terms of the exam, perfectly competent, but I won't go back anyway due to lack of professionalism.
It was a very thorough exam. I am pleased.
Quick and straight to the point. The people were respectful. Wouldnt mind going there to check on my eyes every six months.
Great visit. Professional staff. Was seen within 15 minutes of my appointment time. Had an exam and chose new glasses in less than 1 hour
Dr. came in late in the morning when I had an appointment, and addition to that, the waiting time and area was horrible. One of the machine they used seemed old and not maintained well, I thought.
He was very friendly. My daughter and i felt comfortable with him and his staff. There was a sign hanging in the waiting area that stated, "come in as a customer, leave as a friend". That was EXACTLY the feeling we left with.
Very nice gentleman..
I enjoyed it
I recommend Dr. Oleg and his office.
The service was excellent and the wait time was non-existent. The doctor was very polite and very quick with the check up and answering any questions.
I would recommend Dr. Lisitsyn to others because he's very thorough in his expertise and takes the time to listen to you when you ask a question regarding your health, unlike other physicians. I would definately recommend him to my friends and others.
The visit went fine. Dr. Oleg Lisitysyn was pleasant and answered my questions and I think he was honest with his recommendations.
