Dr. Weissman and his staff were professional, concerned for my health and well-being, courteous, personable, and forthcoming and knowledgeable about billing and insurance inquiries. A real pleasure to receive medical care from a highly competent doctor in New York without the attitude.

Very busy office but I was seen right away. My vision and eye pressure were tested and I was given a "field test" for peripheral vision and left with my prescription called into my pharmacy and new RX for eyeglasses in less than 45 minutes. That is about as good as it gets.

The staff was friendly but their conveying of information was subpar. I had called to ask them BEFORE I even made the appointment whether I would have a co-pay or not. They ran my name through my insurance with me on the phone and told me that I would not. I came in for my appointment where the first doctor took me and under his breath mentioned that I in fact had a co-pay along with several other bits of information so as to cover the fact that he just informed me that I do have co-pay (while my chin was on the machine for my eye exam). I then pulled back and asked him to repeat what he said and asked him if I had a co-pay. To which he responded that I did and that he thought the lady at the front desk had informed me of that. Mind you, he had been sitting there when I walked in and KNEW that the lady had NOT in fact informed me of my co-pay. So I said no, she did not tell me. He then said, " I know she told you on the phone that you wouldn't but then we checked your benefits and realized you did but I thought she would've told you that when you came in." All in all, I wasted an entire hour of my day trying to go to an office that misinformed me and then tried to play me by making me take the exam and have to pay a co-pay. After that, I tried to make another appointment at another office and I COULDNT because this office had a hold on my insurance account and I wasn't able to book another appointment until I had to call them myself and ask them to lift the hold since I hadn't even had my appointment with them to begin with. Eventually they apologized as I left but it was def a waste of my day/time and was inconvenient for me to make my next appointment with another office.

My appointment was great - quick and efficient - but i've now been waiting for two months for someone to call me back regarding the contacts I ordered. Not for the contacts themselves - for someone to actually call me back. Their voicemail is incorrectly setup so can't leave a message . One time it took me to an answering service where the person who answered the phone actually asked me why I was calling. I've called and spoken to someone probably 10 times and have called at least 3 times a week now and they just keep telling me to call back and wait for someone named Ron. Who is Ron? And why can't he call me back? In an entire two months? How hard is it to order contact lenses? When will I get my contact lenses? It's been two months. If i knew this practice operated like this I would have just gone somewhere else. It's such a pain it's unbelievable. I'm pretty furious. I guess i'll just keep calling :D

I enjoyed my visit. There were a few hiccups with filling out forms as a first time patient, and tracking down my insurance information, but that was as much my fault as it was the office's. Dr. Weissman is friendly, seems very knowledgeable, and informs you of your options without being too overbearing with a sales pitch.

Booked the appointment within minutes of creating a ZocDoc account. Appointment was for for the same day. Initially, could not correct the Eye Infection/trauma to the eye. Persistent issue, no fault here. Dr. Weissman followed up immediately with a new treatment plan. Feel 100% times better. Going back for follow up appointment in a couple of days. Everyone in the office makes you feel at home. Very relaxing atmosphere. Would recommend to family and friends.
