I was seen in a timely manner. Actually a few minutes before my apt. Time. Was informed every step he takes as far as what to expect. DR. Chaney informed me of what to expect going forward. He is a good doctor and would recommend him to other patients.

There were issues with the schedule at no fault of the doctor. However, I felt due to this scheduling issue it was somewhat rushed after waiting for the doctor who doesn't even come into the office until after my appointment was booked. Didn't feel like I was an important patient, just got shuffled into the mix. Sure the doctor is great but won't be returning, receptionist didn't try to book a follow up. Also annoyed the reason the patient came in after me was seen first was because my appointment was an eye emergency. If it was an eye emergency, wouldn't I be seen first, not second, especially since my appointment was first? Call the office for an appointment, don't use this site.

I told Dr. Charney that I have bad reactions to eye dilation medication. He gave me a milder version, but I still passed out in an unattended waiting room (I fell forward in my chair); the patient next to me had to call for help. I was given wet paper towels and then largely ignored the rest of my visit. Besides having cuts on my face for a week, the worst part was feeling like everyone in the office was trying to act like it wasn't a big deal. The lack of empathy and care was hurtful.

He is very thorough but relaxed with a great sense of humor. He gave me updates as he was examining me, which helped me relax. He gave me a simple, understandable explanation of my condition but did not condescend. I think he is an excellent doctor and will keep going back.

Dr. Charney is an "old fashion" doctor who will treat you personally, rather than send you to a technician for this or that test, and because of that they don't pad their billings. He is also thorough. LOVe Dr. Charney, thank goodness for doctors like him. However, the reception staff is subpar. Be sure she checks you in, it is not enough to sign in. She doesn't look at the sign in sheet---a very unprofessional and poor practice.

Although I was kept waiting for longer than what I considered reasonable, Dr Charney was apologetic and explained why. He also tried to help me get through the eye exam as quickly as he could when I explained that I had to be out by a certain time. He was a kind doctor who explained things thoroughly. I'll go back again go sure.

Dr. Charney was very nice and took his time with my exam and discussing my vision issues. The office is very clean and, unlike other eye Dr's I have been to in NYC midtown-area, I was seen immediately and only by Dr. Charney, instead of a litany of nurses and assistants as well. That made the appointment run quickly and smoothly and a pleasant experience overall.

I actually had it on Tuesday and not today. Dr. Charney's assistant had called me a few weeks ago to change the appointment to the 21st of January. Nevertheless, I am thoroughly satisfied with the result of my visit and plan to return to him in the future.
