Verified Patient Reviews
He was great. Explained everything while he was doing the exam. The staff were not pushy when I was picking new frames as they said that they weren’t on commission. Great experience.
Professional and kind. This was an excellent visit: the doctor listened to my concerns and explained everything he was doing. I will recommend him to family and friends.
Dr. Leis was phenomenal, he explained everything patiently, and in lay woman's terms. His suggestions were helpful (I went in for contact lenses) and really made me feel like he knew what was best for my eyes.
Dr. Leis was super helpful and friendly. He definitely crosses all his t’s and dots all his i’s, he was very thorough in the exam and gave great advise, will definitely be going back to him in the future.

Dr Leis has been very helpful and has thoughtfully conducted my eye exams carefully explaining his diagnosis in detail and answering all my questions. Thank you.
He was great . The office had a bit of an issue with my insurance and if I did not explain to them it would of not worked out. And as many times as I said I am on my husbands insurance they kept saying , partner . Gay Marriage is still legal ?
Dr. Leis is very professional and takes the time to explain.
Dr. Leis is a thorough practitioner. He not only had a number of tests pertaining to my current eye issues run, he also had some for possible inherited eye issues performed. In discussing the results of these tests and his observations throughout the exam, he explained why the tests were chosen, what he was looking for and the outlook for my future. He showed me comparisons to my previous results and discussed what I should currently be doing along with what steps I can take to prevent issues in the future. Overall, it was a pleasant and informative experience.
Dr. Leis works in a well located practice with fabulous office staff that are friendly and non-assuming. They quickly work to get you in and out. Dr. Leis's bedside manner was one of the best I have experienced in NYC. He was efficient and was able to get me a number of services in a compact period of time. I look forward to returning soon!
I waited more than 1 hour to see the doctor... I had to go back to work, so I was really irritated.
Dr. Leis was incredibly personable, and loved that the office wasn't pushy about buying new glasses on-the-spot - I was able to try a couple of pairs on at my own leisure. Dr. Leis was also very thoughtful, and made sure I didn't have anything critical at work that morning, since my pupils would be dilated for a couple of hours after the examination. Front desk was kind, efficient, and clear about insurance coverage.
Dr. Leis is wonderful! He answered all my questions thoroughly and never made me feel like I was asking anything dumb.
The doctor himself was great and very professional. The receptionist was beyond rude and I felt incredibly belittled. When I tried to get some clarification in regards to what my insurance covered she spoke over and would not let me get a word in. I almost had to yell to be heard. Because of this I won’t return to this office.
Dr. Leis is very knowledgeable and patient. I hadn’t seen an eye doctor in a while and had a lot of questions, and he answered each thoroughly and without rushing me (even though there was a full waiting room). I highly recommend him!
Dr. Leis was great! Very thorough, professional, and fun! This was my first time going to the eye doctor, at 27Years old, embarrassing I know. But I honestly would pick this over the dentist.

Doctor Leis was great and very detailed in his eye examination. No complaints there. The front desk can definitely be better organized.

Dr. Leis was great. I hadn't been to an optometrist before and he was very patient in answering all my questions and explaining all the procedures he was working through. The staff was friendly and helpful and I'll most definitely be visiting again in the future!
Awesome doctor all around. Answered all my questions clearly and patiently. Went above and beyond to provide a positive experience. Front desk staff weren't very good - they were rude and gave the doctor another person's file instead of mine. Regardless, I will be back for future optometry needs.

Dr. Leis was awesome! He was actually waiting for me when I arrived at the office. He broke down every single test he ran and explained the purpose of it and how it relates to eye health. I feel like I learned so much more about my eye health from this one appointment with him than I have in my previous 27 years of going to the eye doctor.
Great experience. Knowledgeable and kind staff. I waited less than 10 minutes to be seen. Highly reccoment this practice and Dr. Leis.

TLDR: I felt truly cared for, he's earned my trust, and I'm definitely coming back! Dr. Leis was kind and very patient. Although my appointment and exam could have been completed well under 30 minutes, he made sure I was comfortable, and answered all of my questions. I felt cared for, and never felt rushed. He was not pushy for me to spend more money than I needed; rather, he presented my options, the pros and cons of each, and his recommendations with sound logic.

Overall, I had an excellent patient experience with a top-notch doctor, and will be returning.

Very thorough and friendly. I appreciated that he described the process and purpose of each step of the exam.
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Leis, he was very thorough and took the time to go through all my questions and concerns, explaining everything. My only issue was the front desk seems to be confused regarding my coverage and were much less helpful and a bit rude when I had questions about my bill or when I called back for follow ups.
Our appointment ran a little behind because he was helping another patient - but once it was with me he was completely engaged and very thorough. Kind, clear and well spoken.
Professional, scientific, welcoming.
Great and professional. Took time to tell me about how and what my eyes are doing at my age... What to possibly expect in the future and how to fix anything.. Very easy to talk to and hang with. Deric
Great experience. The office staff was up front about all costs so I don't expect any surprises there. The wait time was long due to the doctor squeezing in an emergency patient visit - I saw the person in the waiting room and appreciated that the situation was treated as a priority. Despite the backup, the doctor did not rush through my appointment. He was thorough and completed only the necessary test based on things that came up during the appointment. He clearly explained areas for concern and things to look out for in the future. I will definitely go back.
This was my first time getting an eye exam and glasses and Dr. Leis made it such a pleasant experience. I would highly recommend.
