Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Stefan is professional, kind & clearly very knowledgeable. I felt very at ease with him & confident with his recommendations. Everyone else in the office was also helpful & pleasant. I would definitely recommend EyeSociety to anyone looking for eye care.
Dr. Levay-Young was very easy to talk to and was extremely informative. He made the appointment enjoyable and it went quickly. He understood my concerns and addressed them. Would recommend highly!
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 (you can 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!
Very personable and relateable. He explained everything well and provided a thorough examination.
Great. He did a great job! I highly recommend him
I arrived about 15 minutes early to my appointment and they actually got in me in early as well which I hugely appreciate. Great bedside manner. Would highly recommend.
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.
Even though this was not my first visit at Eye Society, this was my first time with Dr. Levay-Young. He was very thorough in his examination and took the time to listen to what I was experiencing.
Great doc! Took time and explained everything thoroughly!
He was very thorough explaining what the eye exam let him know about my retinas
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 never taken the time to walk me through and understand.
Dr. Levay-Young was very helpful and informative. He and his staff really took the time to address my concerns and explain my diagnosis.
Great job! Dr. Stefan answered all my questions thoroughly and to my understanding. He is very personable and pleasant.
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 a on 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!
Easy on the eyes ;) Thanks for the awesome check-up Stefan! Super professional and explained complex items in a simple manner which I could comprehend and ask the appropriate follow-up questions to ensure my future eye health!
Very quick appointment!
