Dr. Koenig was very patient and answered all my questions. I did not feel rushed at all. I felt that he covered every aspect of my vision to make sure they were 100%. I would highly reccommend Dr. Koenig for anybody even just for a regular check up eye exam.
Really good and experienced.
I will sorely miss Dr. Koenig now that he has moved on to do charity work.
Fantastic. Dr. Koenig did FIVE separate tests to determine my exact problem and he nailed it. I was so impressed.
I have been going to Dr. Koenig for years and he is my favorite doctor.
I couldn't recommend him more highly. He was kind, gentle, and I definitely felt he had my best interests at heart. There was no sense I was being rushed through, little wait, and polite and helpful reception. Wonderful man.
He was the most patient and professional doctor I have seen in a log time. Very kind. Excellent bedside manner. Highly recommended.
Efficient and knowledgable. Great staff, as well. Clean office.
I was little nervous to meet a new eye doctor, but it turned out great! Definitely will go back next year for follow up.
It was my first visit at Dr.Steven Koenig's office and I am thoroughly happy with my visit. Although I went in for an emergency appointment, he saw me right away and made sure to run all of the necessary tests and screening of my eyes. Will definitely be coming back!
I've been seeing Dr. Koenig for at least a decade now, and he has always been an outstanding doctor. He is very knowledgeable and thorough. He listens carefully and patiently to all my concerns, and addresses them fully. He has a wonderful "bedside manner" and is definitely one of the very best doctors I have ever seen.
Dr. Koenig is wonderful! Very quick exam and couldn't have been nicer. He took time with any questions I had, and sincerely cared. I'd recommend him!
This was the most pleasant experience that I've had at an Ophthalmologist in quite some time. Dr. Koenig and his staff valued my time & did not leave me sitting in the waiting room for a long time after dilation.
Great experience! I am highly recommending this doctor.
Very happy with my visit. Was happy that I was seen at my appointment time. The Dr was very thorough and didn't rush me in and out of his office. Very pleasant experience overall. I would definitely recommend this doctor.
I was very pleased with Dr. Koenig and intend to see him again for my next annual visit. He explains what he is doing before he does it and I felt that he spent just the right amount of time with me.
Very straightforward. Went in for a contact lens prescription and yearly follow up. He saw me right away and was very nice/helpful. I'll likely go back next year for my follow up.
Very knowledgeable and professional. Was in and out quickly, couldn't ask for more.
Great experience all around. Office staff was friendly and professional. Dr. Koenig was friendly, very knowledgeable and took time to review my history, etc. Explained things thoroughly. Will definitely go back.
Dr Koenig was greatl. He took his time and asked questions/listening to what I had to say. Very professional. The staff was great too. I will recommend this office.
Great doctor. Very thorough exam. I usually don't care much about what eye doctor I go to for my annual exam, but now ill be sure I go back!
Engaging. Caring. Professional. So pleased to have been referred to Dr. Koenig.
My over all experience was wonderful. I highly recommend Dr Koenig. He was very professional, soothing, personable and nice. His staff was very helpful, knowledgable and professional...very nice. I was very satisfied.
Front staff was more concered with eating than taking care of customers. I waited a long time..and he got my prescription totally wrong. Had to go somewhere else and have it revised. Total waste of time.
He is excellent. Not only he is very professional and excellent doctor, he very kind and compasionate. You can tell that he really love and knows his profession.
Professionally done, allowed time to ask and answer questions, specifically asked if I had additional questions, reviewed medical information with me, performed tests quickly and efficiently. Staff also courteous and answered questions.
Dr. Koenig is a professional and so are his staff. His staff seem to be working in a happy environment, and that's always good for business. I have all of my questions answered and will definitely see him in a year again. So, instead of going to places like Lenscrafters who pushes for additional unnecessary checkups and sales after after dragging the process out, see him next time!
Very nice visit, highly recommended.
He was amazing!!!! Very nice and smart and found the smallest piece of dirt that was in my eye and took it out without me even feeling it! I will make him my regular eye doctor going forward for sure!
Lovely doctor, gave me great attention and was quite cognizant of my family history of eye problems.
He was very thorough and professional. Answerd all my questions.
Fantastic experience. Careful and methodical. Very relaxed environment. Exactly what I had hoped for.
It was a very pleasant experience and would highly recommend him to anyone.
he was great doctor..kind and give all the time to his patient..
I thought Dr. Koenig was very professional as was his staff. Although, in the past at every eye doctor I've seen, I've always left with a sample of contact lenses reflecting the new prescription. That was not the case today - so I am hoping the new lenses I just ordered, with a new prescription, are exactly what my eyes need.
Excellent. Very friendly. Professional, knowledgeable demeanor.
I've been to Dr. Koenig twice. He's been very friendly and helpful. He's also very eager to explain what's going on.
I though Dr. Koenig was very professional, courteous and polite.
I wanted to like Dr. Koenig out of convenience (I just moved closeby), but my experience did not align with the patient reviews and credentials that I researched beforehand. He unfortunately wrote the prescription to another person (a mistake that I easily could have corrected if I hadn't been dialated) and the prescription he wrote was far different from my long history of prescriptions (my eyeglass shop pointed this out to me when I dropped off my prescription). Perhaps as a function of his age, he does not use email so it has been difficult and frustrating to connect with him via phone between his work schedule and mine to correct the prescription and the name on the prescription. Had his bedside manner been better than satisfactory, I would have overlooked these issues and continued to see him.
Unnecessary follow up points in order to collect co-pays.
Dr. Koenig is very kind and thorough. His office staff are efficient and personable. A very good experience.

It was nice and pleasant. Dr. Koenig appeared knowledgeable and went about his work very professionally.
Great doctor. Came in for a regular checkup for contacts but he took the time to do some additional analysis due to some abnormality he saw in my eyes. In the end, it turned out to be a non-issue but really appreciated that he took the time to go beyond the requirement.
Dr. Koenig was professional and nice.
Simple and Smooth.
Dr. Koenig is amazing - I was in and out in 30 minutes for a routine eye checkup. He's very thorough and tells you exactly what he is observing! Not to mention he is very friendly and makes you feel welcome and comfortable.

The Staff and Dr. Koenig were very friendly, professional & courteous. Dr. Koenig was very attentive & Thorough too. And the best part was that I was able to make an appointment at the last minute and didn't have to wait more than 5 minutes to see the doctor.
Dr. Koenig saw me right away, was very thorough and took the time to listen to my symptoms and concerns. His staff was friendly and efficient, too. I don't think I've ever had such a pleasant visit to a doctor's office!
He could have taken more time to explain the process of getting new contacts to me. He also could have told me something about my vision and what was happening in my eyes. I didn't feel rushed but I also didn't feel like I had his complete attention as a patient.
There were some technical issues regarding the booking on ZocDoc and the listing of insurances accepted, but Dr. Koenig and his staff were very understanding and helpful and worked with me. Will certainly recommend his services to others!
He is very attentive, he informs you of everything he is about to do and why he is doing it, and he leaves room for asking questions.
The Doctor was timely and very pleasant and caring. He was also knowledgeable and thorough with his examination.
