I read other reviews and made sure I called his office to confirm my appointment....good thing since she said they don't use ZocDoc and they showed no appointment! I waited over an hour after being told he was on time. Thenwhen I was seen, he told me right off that he does not handle contact lense prescriptions....only medical issues. He apologized but really made me feel like I clearly misunderstood. I don't think so! Never again.

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.

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 himto 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.

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 testto 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.

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 thingsto 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 wasalso 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.

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!
