I was very anxious before my appointment. Fortunately, Dr Dhar is very patient, taking her time to answer all my questions.She definitely knows her stuff. The office is very beautiful and conveniently located near many subways. I wouldn't go to any other Glaucoma specialist in NYC.

Most unprofessional doctor I have ever experienced with the sensitivity of 2 by 4. I made the mistake of making an appointment for my mother with this lady and was horrified at her response when she learned my mother was notreferred to her by another doctor and had problems articulating her eye stroke. I asked to speak to her and she puts me on speaker phone to yell at me and tell my mother who was looking for hope that her glaucoma was so sever and should never have practically come to her office and she was looking for a miracle. I told her that it was unnecessary to talk to her this way while she was present. She was already very depressed and was looking for some hope instead she got this horrible experience. Highly urge you to go else where cause don’t thinking anyone’s mother should be treated this way she is 69 yrs old for god sake.sincerely her son.

Dr. Dhar was fantastic. I was referred to her by another ophthalmologist. Everyone in the office was nice and they were able to see me fairly quickly. Dr. Dhar was professional, courteous, and was able to explain things to me ina way that was easy to understand. She put me at ease.

Dr. Dhar is thorough in her exam and the office was warm and welcoming. There were a number of patients in whilst I was there but she managed us all efficiently which was much appreciated. This was the first time Ihad my eyes dilated and she made me feel comfortable and eased my fears. Definitely recommend Dr. Dhar!

Was on the phone for the first 10 minutes we were in the exam room on a personal call. Didn't discuss with me my concerns. Very quickly and abruptly did the eye drops and exam without much patience. Altogether unsatisfactory given the price.

My only annoyance is that despite filling out the ZocDoc paperwork, I still had to fill out paperwork. Also the front desk person pre-filled some of the paperwork with incorrect information. He asked me if I was sure it was incorrectand it included a date of birth that preceded mine by 20 years.

The doctor saw me right away when I arrived. She listened intently to my issue, gave me great advice and recommendations, and made sure I understood all my options. She wasn't great about giving me a heads up about what drops/toolsshe was going to use on my eyes at first, but when I asked for clarification beforehand she accommodated me very quickly. All in all, great experience!
