when I see Dr. Modaks practice list one of a headache since I suffer from a headache lately I want to see her. But she was not available for me. After One and a half hour later finally called me fora test. Then put me in the one of office. Two different optometry Dr. Came to see me one another. Such a disappoint. If I want to see other Drs. I would not make the appointment with Modak. They do not care what the patient needs. The patient is the human being, does not need to toss between MD, Optometry, Techs, By the time finished after 5 pm. Only one receptionist left at the desk.

Dr. Modak was extremely competent and thorough. This was by far the most comprehensive eye exam that I have ever experienced. She also seemed to genuinely care about my health.

I have a son with cerebral palsy, so he's seen a lot of doctors in his life. This was one of the most pleasant experiences I've ever had. The entire staff was friendly, welcoming and accommodating. We were taken back rightaway, and seen by the doctor right away. Dr. Modak was wonderful with my son. She diagnosed him, gave us the proper medication and we were on our way. I can not say enough good things about my experience in their office today!

The visit was a little unorganized and received different information from two different doctors. Seems they were more concerned about performing unnecessary tests for financial gains.

I saw Dr. Modak for a general glasses/contacts exam. The trial pair of contacts she prescribed me unfortunately was incorrect (too strong) and I had to return to the office for another exam by another doctor in the practice. It tookabout a month for me to get the second correct prescription, which includes the wait time for the trial contacts to come in and also the week long trial for each pair of contacts.

I would recommend Dr. Modak who was great but the wait to see her was way too long and inefficient. One of the assistants seemed very rushed and not very courteous at the end of the visit.

Quick, thorough, no nonsense; overall a pretty good exam! Didn't take nearly as long as I thought it might. Dr. Modak was friendly, has a good 'bedside' manner, knows what she's doing and doesn't waste time. This was my first visit. Based on that, I would recommend!

She was very nice to my dad, and speaks Spanish which helped a lot. She even recommended another doctor for a second opinion on my dad's cancer. It wasn't necessary but so very appreciated. My mom will also be making an appointment to see her soon. Thank you!
