Excellent service. My kids and I loved the visit. Very knowledgeable! Super laid back.
His bedside manner made me feel uncomfortable about returning a second time. Wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone.

Definitely thorough! and really nice
Very nice staff experience. Dr. Rosenbaum and his staff were thorough, but kept things moving along efficiently.
Saw him twice and was very satisfied. Note: If you schedule through Zocdoc, I suggest you call his office to confirm the appointment and double check his availability.
Love this place n the doctor is just amazing ....
I think he's a wonderful doctor n person...knows what he's doing ...very professional n has a super personality.... Def will b back...
Dr. Rosenbaum's exam was thorough, he discussed my condition with me, and answered all my questions. He is the uveitis specialist I had been looking for and I will see him again. If you schedule through Zocdoc it is best also to call to confirm the appointment.
Dr. Rosenbaum was professional, clear and friendly. He explained every step he took and spent a considerable amount of time with me. Overall, it was a very satisfactory experience.
Busy office, good sign of how patient are treated and appreciate an eye doc on the East Side :]
Very good service
Very happy with visit, I'm happy o went to see him
Dr. Roesenbaum is good, good bedside manner, patient to explain my situation and answer my concerns.
Dr. Rosenbaum provided a detailed and thorough assessment of my condition. He provided me with options and a plan to address my concerns, which made me confident and comfortable about the road ahead.
I had a very thorough and informative check-up with Dr. Rosenbaum. Although I only went for a general eye exam and contact prescription, he gave me a full rundown on the status of my corneal and retinal health. Would recommend him to anyone looking for the same. My only qualm with the office was the wait time and the fact that my pre-registration on ZocDoc was not filed with his office prior to my arrival, and I had to fill out all the information again.
Overall everything was great. Would have liked to know how much time to set aside for appointment ahead of time (over an hour for first time).
Very nice and informative doctor.
Visit was excellent. But Zoc Doc FAILED.!!! The office had no record of my appointment. Please explain. It was embarrasing. Please advise me what happened. I had to sit there and fill out the chart information again.
No one in the office knew about my appointment on ZocDoc. I filled out all the paperwork again
I was once again impressed with the staff and the doctor. I felt comfortable, the level of the support staff is professional and time was taken to address my concerns. I recommend Dr Rosenbaum without hesitation.
Dr. Rosenbaum was really great. I will definitely continue going to him. My only complaint is that they didn't seem to have my zocdoc appointment. They said it didn't transfer automatically. I would recommend to call and confirm.
Office is dated and the layout is confusing. Appointment felt a little rushed and not super friendly.
Excellent doctor. Very attentive. Highly proffesional. I already recommended him to my colleagues at work. What matters that his staff is also sufficient and nice as well. Great office
Great bedside manner and made me feel so comfortable. A great and professional experience and atmosphere. Wonderful doctor!
Very professional and personable. Quickly seen by Dr in beautiful offices. Diagnosis for follow-up procedure. Comfortable with his advice. Highly recommend.
New front desk receptionist made an error and I was made to wait over an hour. Doctor apologized directly and appropriately. Once inside, a bit of further waiting and the feeling that multiple patients were being moved around from one test to another, but also a sense that the doctor was trying to help as many people as possible (not just cramming people in). Would have preferred a more calm, private experience but overall had faith and trust in the doctor's expertise and thoroughness.
i was pleased with my visit.
The administrative staff were top-notch; polite, and on pointe. The office address is confusing, the office is now in 1310, not 1316, although there is old signage that points to 1316. The doctor was knowledgable and willing to explain things to me which was good. Rather a 'cut and dry' manner to him, but whatever, I got my eyes checked which was the bottom line.
Excellent. Very informed and informative, and took time to explain things. I especially lucked out because he is an expert in a particular medical area of relevance to me - arthritic effects on the eyes (and AS in particular). He was also very frank in assessing my corrective prescription needs -- my solution will be much better than what I have now. Just all around easy to speak with, and helpful and direct in providing useful answers and explanations. His technical assistant was also very nice to work with.
Professional and informative.
Staff was professonal, respectfull and caring
I waited for about 30 minutes to see Dr. Rosenbaum, but once I got in he was very fast (not in a rushed way). He is very pleasant and makes great conversation.
Great once I saw him, but the other reviewers are correct that it takes awhile to be seen. So, go visit this doctor if you're having any eye issues, but make sure to bring something to keep you occupied while you wait!
I thought by the time i saw him from that time on it was a lovely thorough visit with assistants of his and his frank speaking to me. I also, had another test taken which i didn't have before but made for a more thorough apt. I found him bright, intelligent and very kind.t
Nice doctor. Relatively quick and efficient, and nice guy
Dr. Rosenbaum was very professional, efficient and cordial. I was pleased in the manner he communicated his diagnosis and felt confident that I was in good hands with Dr. Rosenbaum. I was also quite pleased with his staff and the overall operation of the office.
He was excellent and very thorough.
Per my client, he was good.
The computers were down so the wait was too long, but Dr. Rosenbaum was gracious and courteous. I didn't have time for a full exam, but I will go back to see him again.
Very knowledgable of his work and makes you feel at ease. The staff are also very welcoming especially the front end and I don't want to forget the technician she was very professional n courteous .
people person. rare
It was the most thorough visit I ever had. Dr. Rosenbaum and his staff were friendly, and welcoming. I highly recommend Dr Rosenbaum and have to all my friends.
It was terrible. I was there for 2 hours waiting to be tested. The doctor was not helpful in telling anyone I was going to be tested, he just dropped me off and left.
It needs to be more clear on their website or when booking the appointment that they do not do fittings for contact lenses. I wrote that this was the purpose of my visit in the notes section, but nobody read it, so I did not realize until I was in the exam room. Dr. Rosenbaum was kind enough to do an exam anyway, but I would never have booked the appointment had I realized that this wasn't within his list of services.
Very professional i really love it great dr
Very pleased. It's a keeper
Everyone was really great there, from the receptionist to the nurse and the Dr. Everyone was patient, informative and kind. Really great people, will go again.
I have been looking for an eye doctor I trust for the past 2 years and I finally found him! Thanks ZocDoc!
The doctor is very professional. I am very satisfied with my visit. I highly recommend him.
He knows his stuff
Totally professional. Friendly.
Doctor Rosenbaum was very through, explained my diagnosis in simple terms for us non-doctors. Everyone in office was courteous and no waiting. Would highly recommend.
He took his time and explained to me my problem and also was very comfortable to communicate with.
Very thorough and everyone very professional
He seemed to know what he was talking about, although he did not tell me anything other than what i was able to learn about my condition online.
Appointment felt rushed
Really warm and knowledgable. Great bed side manner and helpful in explaining all my problems.
It was great doctor knows how to explain the situation a lil better
Very professional, very pleasant, and I did not feel "rushed"
I thought Dr. Rosenbaum was very professional and made me feel at ease. Going to the eye doctor usually freaks me out but he made me feel comfortable. He was happy to answer any questions I had. I felt confident he knew what he was talking about. I would definitely go back for any eye issues I may have in the future and would recommend him to my peers.
Dr. Rosenbaum was very kind, understanding, direct, and soft-spoken. It was my first visit, and I could feel right away that I could trust him with my eyes.
The visit went well,the receptionist was awesome.
We found Dr. Rosenbaum extremely competent, compassionate, helpful.
It was pretty nice,the staff is great and the place is very nice & clean.
