You’re in and you’re out. They were very friendly and efficient. Finally an office that doesn’t make you wait 20 mins in every room they move you to.

Absolutely fantastic. This was my first appointment with this doctor and he was incredible. He explained exactly why my eyes are the way they are, and did so in a way that was easy to understand. I've had glasses or contactsfor over 15 years and nobody has made my issues as clear as he did (no pun intended). Highly, highly recommend.

Dr. Levay-Young was extremely personable, efficient and knowledgable. I highly recommend him and his staff to anyone in need of, or looking for, a great eye doctor. Another plus -- I used ZocDoc to book and prepare for my appointment (youcan complete the new patient paperwork through ZocDoc to avoid doing so in the office), which streamlined everything and allowed me to get in and out of the appointment quickly. If you work or live in or around the loop, Dr. Levay-Young should be your new go-to eye doctor. You wont be disappointed!

I managed to get a last minute appointment with Dr. Levay-Young, and he was excellent! He was professional, nice, and mindful. He took the extra time to explain a (benign) eye irregularity I have. Something previous doctors have noted but nevertaken the time to walk me through and understand.

It was about a 20 min wait which I thought was slow but I really enjoy how knowledgeable and attentive and non-rushed the staff + doctor were, so the wait is worth it.

I was very impressed by the Dr. and his staff. Dr. young, was very thorough and professional. He noticed a situation with my eyes and worked with his assistant to retake the test and explained what was going on( nothing serious).Also, staff was very friendly and competent. They selected several frames for me and worked out pricing and all details. Would recommend very strongly.

Dr. Stefan was great; he conducted a thorough exam and was very friendly. Specifically, he made it his mission to fix the issue I was having with my contacts, which I really appreciate. He even spent some time advising me aon a couple of the frames I had picked out because he had some extra time after my appointment. I will definitely keep going to Dr. Stefan and highly recommend him to anyone seeking an Optometrist!
