I visited him again for my first time contact lens. I wasn't able to wear it for about hour and half and he encouraged me in a nice manner. Not sure if it's just me couldn't wear the contact lenses atthe first time but he was nice. Will visit him again once I feel comfortable wearing the lenses.

Dr. Ancona is great, which is why I still go to him even though I moved to the UWS. He is very patient, thorough and takes the time to explain things. I also like the person on staff today, who helpedme find the perfect glasses that fit my face and accommodate my heavy prescription.

Great checkup and attitude. However, I felt that I was over-charged and extra tests were performed without my awareness of the costs. Walked away with a much bigger bill than anticipated.
