I chose Dr. Kotlyar based on reviews and I am glad I did. I was a first time patient and was able to find an appointment on the same day. New patient paperwork was minimal as was the wait time be seen. I showed up a little early and was seen at my scheduled time. I had a thorough exam since I had not been to an eye doctor in over a decade so I was there quite a while overall, but it wasn't anything out of the ordinary. I found her and the staff to be quite thorough and very friendly. I highly recommend them!

She seemed thorough but also a little rushed. Could be because she was running late. Otherwise, very competent and efficient.

Dr. Kotlyar was professional in every way. She was knowledgeable, answered all my questions completely, and quickly and efficiently explained concepts about eyes and eye health. Since my goal was to get a prescription, my concern was that I might be rushed to make decisions. The exam didn't take long, but the precision and her interest in getting the prescription right was impressive. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Kotlyar and will be returning in the future for checkups.
