Verified Patient Reviews
-too much waiting after I was in the exam room. The person helping me with basic eye exam and paperwork seemed new because she was a bit slow in processing everything and had to ask questions from other peers often, which created more waiting for me.
I really liked the ease of scheduling and availability. Dr. Jovkar is very knowledgeable and personable.
My husband was in so much pain and he was attended promptly, while I was still filling the forms. Dr Sayed and his staff are very kind and attentive and examined and treat very well my husband.
I will preface this by saying this did not go well. I wont be returning. He was difficult to understand and aggressive. What I did understand was that he couldn't help me.
What I appreciated most about Dr. Jovkar is that he did not seem rushed, and took time to make sure all of my questions and my mother's questions were answered. He was clear, comforting, and highly professional.
Dr. Jovkar and his staff were very professional and friendly.
Dr Syed is great and helpful??
Didn't take advantage of any of the e-checkin at all. Found myself filling in all the forms again and waiting for insurance verification in their office.a
Dr Jovkar is very knowledgeable and experienced. He explained the problem and gave the treatment options. Happy with the visit.
The appointment time given by ZoDoc was off by 30 minutes. The people working at that office (including Dr. Jovkar) are not good listeners.
decent doctor. but too rushed. they scheduled a follow up then when i took off work early to go in, they simply didnt have me on record. won't be coming back.
Assuring and very professional.
Fully met my expectations of a full eye exam. Dr. Jovkar patiently addressed several questions and concerns with compassion and education.
The appointment was for my dad and he was very pleased with the level of care he received. He will be back for his follow up and is happy to have chosen Dr. Jovkar. On my part, I have to give props to the front office staff which coordinated the appointment and reached out to me to confirm the apt by phone and email. They made the relationship between ZocDoc and the office a seamless experience! Great job!
