Verified Patient Reviews
Best doctor for dry eyes, period. Really listens, and doesn't try to sell you nonsense. I'm moving away and will miss him!
Very thorough, very professional, very knowledgeable. Office staff friendly and helpful.
Excellent bedside manners!
Extremely thorough and professional . Wouldn’t think of using anyone else.
Very impressed with Dr Latkany. Very thorough and knows his stuff.
Very professional, pleasant, efficient and patient with questions.
I have been to two specialists at Johns Hopkins, two other opthalmologists, and one dermatologist for diagnoses of ocular rosacea and blepharitis. Only the dermatologist spent much time listening to me, but I have to question both of her conclusions, based on this visit. I can't way whether Dr. Latkany's conclusions were right quite yet, but he did spend more time actually looking at me while I talked, and responding to what I asked, than the 4 opthalmologists I've seen. I felt like a person, not an eyeball.
He was awesome. He took the time to talk to me and answer questions I had. He seemed very knowledgeable about what was wrong with my eyes and had a very laid back approach!
I was very pleased with the care I received and with Dr. Latkany's approach to me and my care.
It was a good experience. I was seen shortly after my appointment time, and he took the time to answer all my questions and explain what he was doing.
No wait. Gave me an in depth description and offered practical treatments for my condition. Would definitely recommend.
Great experience overall.
I couldn't ask for a better experience.
The doctor was knowledgeable and courteous. He carefully reached his observation on the root causes of my dry eyes and was direct in his communication regarding solutions, which I appreciated. This was my best opthomologist visit in the city thus far, and I plan to return for my check up in a couple of months. Glad I got my check up here today!
Dr, Latkany is an extremely skillful practitioner, and his office is well run and efficient. Highly recommend.
Professional, knowledgeable and approachable.
Dr. Robert is the man for dry eyes!!
I've seen a number of physicians recently and Dr. Latkany is without a doubt the most knowledgeable. He was able to recognize signs and symptoms others had missed immediately. Incredibly professional, thorough and the visit never felt rushed. Would gladly visit again!
Dr. Latkany was relaxed, to the point, and clear. He explained my options for treatment, likely causes (so I can avoid in the future) and answered all of my questions.
Great doctor! Dr. Latkany is very knowledgeable and always shows a genuine concern for my problems.
Loved this doctor. He saw me right away, was super nice, and answered all of my questions and then some. Highly recommend him.
About a 30 minute wait to be seen (middle of the day), but I liked the doctor a lot, answered all my questions thoroughly, and I definitely plan on going back.
He was very good. Will definitely go to him again.
He was very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend
Excellent Doctor-really takes time with his patients!
This was my first visit, I will review after a couple of visits
He was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the problem I have and gave me a great solution.
The doctor is very professional. He diagnosed the problem right away. He was very detail in giving medication instructions and what I need to do at home to make my eye feel better.
I left the office feeling unsure about the diagnosis and without any definite treatment plan. I kind of feel I was left to fend for myself.
Dr. Latkany is extremely knowledgeable and was able to analyze and give us helpful next steps to a frustrating, complicated issue that other doctors had not been able to resolve for us. He is very kind and thorough.
Everything was great EXCEPT I was given eye drops that severely impaired my vision for several hours. I understand that they were necessary for the tests but I would have liked to have been warned when I made the appointment. If I'd known, I would have gone towards the end of a workday, not at the beginning!
Was really easily accessible, doctor was very friendly and helpful and the office was nice and clean. Easy visit!
Very professional and thoughtful. Provided helpful explanations for everything.
The doctor was very pleasant and professional and easy to speak with. The staff in front ended up being helpful and somewhat friendly but started off being curt. Not a deal breaker (I'll probably o here again) but would make a big difference if front staff were friendlier.
He was very nice and polite. Dr. Latkany and his staff make you feel welcome.
He is a superb opthamologist, very knowledgeable and personable. I am a phsycian (in another filed) myself
Excellent. One of the rare doctors to spend time with you to explain everything and answer any/all questions. A consummate and exemplary medical professional!
Extremely knowledgeable about dry eye problems. He inserts plugs with extreme efficiency.
It was very satisfying to meet Dr. Latkany and we will continue to work together.
I was suffering with what I thought was chronic dry eye for months. I was seeing an ophthalmologist in DC who had ran out of ideas. After reading Dr. Latkany's book, The Dry Eye Remedy, I got about fourteen new ideas that have majorly helped. Within minutes, Dr. Latkany explained how my eyes were not dry, but that I was suffering from ocular rosacea. He gave me lifestyle advice and the changes have turned my entire life around. I was spending hundreds of dollars on eye drops per month and now I only use eye drops every few days thanks to his advice. If you have been suffering with dry eye issues and are at the end of your rope, a visit to Dr. Latkany is worth every dollar!
Dr. very nice and knowledgeable.
He is easy to talk with. He gave me encouragement that an eye problem may resolve itself, possibly preventing further trauma to my eyes.
He had a great "bedside manner" was serious when necessary and also to the point yet comfortable and light hearted. We liked him very much. He is helping to solve our medical issues when. 2 other doctors did not.
I went to see Dr. Latkany after becoming frustrated with other doctors who weren't very helpful in treating my problem—and tried to treat it without really figuring out what was going on. Dr. Latkany listened carefully, talked me through the possibilities, and is committed to finding out what's at the root of my problem and then treating it. I'm very glad to have found him. Staff was great too!
Absolutely excellent experience. Extremely quick to see me, very straightforward exam and diagnosis. Felt that I am in excellent hands.
Dr. Latkany identified my problem immediately and referred me to an excellent optometrist who fitted me for specific RGP contact lenses that helped my vision.
I went to visit Doctor Latkany after I read his book on dry eye. He listened carefully of my history and symptoms, and suggested a new approach. He seems very knowledgable in this area. I will go back to visit him in two weeks for next steps. After trying various eye doctors for past a few years and still suffer from dry eye, I have high hopes on working with him.
He answered questions with explanations that I could understand. Didn't rush me out. Made me feel at ease. I'll be back!
Did not help me at all. Instead ripped apart my physical appearance. I thought I was coming to an eye doctor not a plastic surgeon.
Great doctor, i was really impressed and thats tough!
Good visit! Everything was speedy and explained well to me.
He himself and his staff are remarkable. Quick but not rushed, he is incredibly knowledgeable and remembers patients even if like me, he hasn't treated me in over a year. Friendly staff, quiet office. I recommend all my colleagues and friends to him.
Honest and straightforward doctor who knows his stuff. Would recommend Dr. Latkany to anyone.
Very helpful, listened to my list of symptoms
Right to the point, quick test and efficient delivery.
There was no wait time to see the Doctor. I never felt rushed thru my consultation. Dr. Latkany was very thorough and listened attentively to everything I had to say.
It was a highly informative visit.
I had to go to Dr. Latkany for an emergency appt and he was very helpful, to the point, and there was hardly any wait time. I would highly recommend!
Thorough, thoughtful, and very specific about follow up which I appreciate. Efficient office.
After seeing many doctors, over many months, Dr Latkany took me on a new route and it appears we have solved the mystery of my eye problem. He is compassionate and determined. You feel "safe" and "cared for" in his capable hands. Very worth the trip into New York !
Great ophthalmologist. I see him once a year, he always listens to my concerns and finds the right prescription for me.
Dr. Latkany was very thorough he made sure I understood my problem and how to deal with it. The staff was excellent and very helpful. This is the place to go!!
thorough and answered all of my questions - in and out quickly - would highly recommend!
I think it's an excellent doctor
Very nice and professional. Both the doctor and staff!
Extremely knowledgable! Really helped to make me feel good about what needed to be done.
I was very happy with my visit. I felt at ease with Dr. Latkany and his assisstant.
Dr. Latkany was very knowledgeable and friendly. The only downside was that I had to wait for quite some time to be seen, but the visit ended up being worth the wait.
There was very little wait time (maybe 5 minutes). Dr Latkany was very friendly and professional. He made sure I understood everything I needed to do. Would go back to him again.
This was my first appointment so I really cannot speak to the quality of treatment just yet. Dr. Latkany was very polite, honest, and caring. He took the time to explain his observations and what they meant.
He is a great Dr.
he was good and friendly also knowledgeable with what i was concern about
I thought it was worth the rate. he was great, very professional, told me things
My only complaint was having to listen to the receptionist talk on personal calls nearly the entire time I waited. The doctor, however, was great.
The initial intake process with Maya was thorough and once I saw the Doctor, he seemed to listen and take the necessary time with me. He fixed one of my issues right away and it remains to be seen if the other issue resolves based on his suggested Rx. All said, as of now, this was one of my most pleasant doctor's experiences in NYC and I would definitely go back to him again.
Dr. Latkany was very professional and also very nice. He was very thorough in his examination and also answered all my follow up questions. I am very glad I went to him for a general examination as he caught some things that I should be aware of and watch throughout the year(s). Very thankful for that! I also went to get my contacts and glasses prescriptions and it was great. You can order the contact lenses directly from him which is good and convenient.
He is very professional, and at the same time very cordial. Goes straight to the point.
He's a good doctor and gave some helpful advice. During my initial visit though, I did feel that he brushed me off a bit when I was describing when my eye issues started happening and the possible triggers; maybe I was long winded, not sure. But I figured better to give too much information than too little. The second visit he was a lot warmer and more helpful though. I did have to ask him to explain what treatments I should be doing since initially he said I had allergies and not dry eyes but didn't say how I should treat the allergies.
A very "non-NYC" medical experience. Everyone, from the receptionist to the Doctor was genial and professional. Maia, the Drs. assistant was extremely pleasant, and Dr. Latkany was straighforward with information, and has a very comforting manner. All actually made for an enjoyable experience - not what one generally conjures for a medical exam.
Dr. Latkany was professional and took time to understand my eye history before he made his diagnosis. He was willing to listen to what I wanted/needed and gave me various options for going forward.
Dr. Latkany is attentive, incredibly smart, and saw me as a human being with a story. Because he was attentive to my history, he diagnosed me properly and put me on a course of treatment that is yielding results. I had seen 4 doctors before him, all of whom failed to help.
He was great. Knew his information and was very friendly. Will be using him regularly
Courteous, informative, attentive, and all-around a wonderful Doctor. I really appreciated his sincerity and how he was quick to suggest alternative treatments to better bit my needs. Oh, and I waited in the lobby for less than five minutes. A very positive experience!
Excellent! His assistant Maya (sp) was thorough and helpful. The doctor saw me shortly after the intake was finished. The doctor is very pleasant.
Professional, polite, and informative. Perfect.
Dr. Latkany is a patient listener. He answered all my queries. I am very happy to have him as my eye doctor.
I liked the dr but the wait was a little longer than expected.
The doctor is low-key, patient, takes the time to explain everything thoroughly and took my concerns into account at all times. I am glad to have found him.
Great doctor highly recommend him
It was great. Very kind. Explained everything very well. Very thorough.
it was very professional
It was really a pleasure to see Dr. Latkany. He saw me right away and was very friendly, as was his office staff.
Love the office, staff was pleasant. The Dr. was great! Very thorough. I felt very comfortable at my appointment..
He was very easy to talk to and honest, wasn't trying to push me to come back for unnecessary follow ups. Didn't wait at all. All of the staff there were very friendly, I forgot my insurance card which was a problem but the receptionist looked it up for me so I didn't have to reschedule or anything. Would definitely recommend him.
The wait could have been less but he immediately diagnosed me and gave me an RX for what I needed. Very helpful!
Very calm and serious. Quite helpful and will be going back to him soon.
Was able to diagnose the issue and recommend a successful course of treatment when no one else could.
He was very patient and thorough, and took the time to explain things to me both about my problem and beyond. I would heavily recommend him to everyone.
Very good at explaining my problem and giving me an understanding of my options.
very professional and kind!
Professional and efficient
great experience. I have been to 10 different eye doctors over 4 years. He fixed my problem in 5 months.
Dr. Latkany made me feel like I had finally found somebody who really understood the causes of my problems and how to deal with them effectively.
He listens to you and takes the time to answer to your questions....something unseen in most doctors
very happy with my visit
He's great, office staff is great.
A very thoughtful friendly person
Very Thoughtful, careful and intelligent
Nice, small office environment. Personalized treatment. No wait time. Dr. Latkany's a good guy.
I really liked Dr. Latkany! He seemed thorough and confident. My appt was a half hour late, but then he really gave me the courtesy of time during my appt so I didn't mind. He wants to see me for follow up and discuss a more comprehensive treatment for my general problems after the initial infection clears, which I'm looking forward to. And he doesn't seem like an "over-diagnoser" either, which I appreciate.
Knowledable and confident he could help with a long-term recurring problem.
Highly intelligent and efficient and friendly
my visit was pleasing, i got good information about my eyes and how keep them healthy
He was very knowledgeable and friendly! I didn't have to wait at all. The staff is also great.
The technician was nice and the doctor was thorough and asked numerous questions to try and filter out the issue... Referred me to an allergist and I will be seeing him in early January!
Professional, fast and courteous. Highly recommend. Also appreciated ability to schedule online for the time I wanted - with 1-2 days notice. Life saver.
Kid friendly; zero wait time. doesn't have to go room to room. very patient.
Very to the point, & instead of prescribing tons of tests/medications, he prescribed only the tests that was necessary. Definitely recommend him!
Great doctor! He was also extremely kind to my young kids, who I had not planned to bring along.
Professional. I appreciated the insight he provides when making his diagnoses. He was fairly open to answering questions. My only disappointment was his relative hesitation to provide more than just the basic services on the first visit. To his credit, though, he did provide rationales for his decision.
Absolutely spectacular. A well regarded specialist who takes the time to explain thoroughly, with just the right amount of compassion. I'm absolutely thrilled!
Great doctor and staff
Dr. L is warm and friendly.
For dry eyes, he is THE MAN. For any cornea related problem he's an outstanding choice. I'm thrilled with him.
Good communicator and listener. Answered all questions effectively.
He was very professional, kind, efficient, and smart. He answered all my questions and hopefully fixed my problem.
Excellent. I would highly recommend.
the wait time was reasonable but I want make future patients aware that the doctor charges additional $ 60 for prescription on top of copay. So if you need prescription go somewhere else
Great experience. Dr. Latkany took into consideration my lifestyle, job and extracurriculars, my past history with eyeglasses and my exam combined to decide if a prescription was right for me. I felt like my opinion on the matter was being taken into consideration and I really appreciated that.
The doctor recommended a diagnosis for me that no one else ever suggested. Looking forward to see if the actions he suggested work. I would definitely recommend him.
I thought Dr. Latkany was fabulous. He took a lot of time with me and really helped me figure out why my eyes have been bothering me. He had insight that other doctors did not. I will definitely continue to see him.
He was very pleasant and right to the point with what is wrong and how to go ahead and treat the problem.
No wait time. Same day appt. Very practical and kind.
