Most helpful doctor of any kind that I have ever been to. I feel so lucky that she is just a short walk away from home!
I absolutely recommend! The staff was extremely helpful, kind, and overall just a pleasure to interact with. Because I was paying out of pocket, they explained all of the costs so i would have all of the information. There was minimal wait time. The doctor was wonderful through the whole appointment and helped me pick new contacts since my old ones have been discontinued. Will definitely return.
It's was pretty fast and they attended me earlier than schedule. it took less than 20 mins and she is so friendly, and professional coming back to pick up my glasses. I highly recommend Her.
Staff is great. The space cold use an upgrade but this doesn't take away from the service.
She was great, thorough, walked me through my options and recommended a cost-efficient option that works for my lifestyle. Spent time recommending a good timeline for laser correction surgery, which I am interested in.
Dr. Susanna Lee was very professional, yet friendly optometrist ive ever met~~~~~! She is very competent in what she does yet knows how to make patients comfortable, i hate doing the air puffs so she noticed it when i was told to put my face im front of a machine thinking it was the air puffing machine! Lol. She used yellow drops that tests the same thing as an alternative! She thoroughly explained about my eye conditions n what can be done~ i was so satisfied w her, i even got my Chanel sunglasses lenses replaced there too! Coming back for my glasses pick up & getting the dialatiom testing soon too!
Perfectly comfortable and efficient visit. Nothing bad to say!
She was very professional and kind.
When I arrived for my appointment, I filled out my paperwork. About fifteen minutes after my appointment was supposed to begin, I was told it would be 45-60 minutes before the doctor saw me. I would not recommend this business to anyone who wants things done in a timely manner. I have chosen to take my business elsewhere. Very disappointing, as I've had a great experience here in the past.
It was very fast ....thank you
Knowledgeable and professional, Dr. Lee remembered details about me from past conversations even after a year passed since my last visit which made for an enjoyable checkup.
It's been two years since my last prescription. The glasses I got two years ago got me dizzy looking at computers. Dr Lee checked my eyes and the glasses and told me I am not required to get new prescription. Apparently my old glasses are not made for close up reading. She also suggested me to get prescription sunglasses. I would recommend Dr Lee to my friends.
This is the second time I have seen Dr. Lee both times for a eye exam and contact fitting. She is very thorough and makes sure the contacts fit well.
I thought she very thorough and patient. She was also really helpful in deciding whether or not contacts would be a good choice and went through all of the options. I would definitely recommend her!
Dr. Lee is a fantastic eye doctor. She knows what she is talking about and treats you like a friend rather than just a random patient. She is helpful and intelligent. I would recommend her to anyone.
They are not professional. The eye evaluation was really bad . The glass they provided was not working properly .
Her and her staff are extremely friendly.
I am very satisfied with the service. Quick & pleasant service.
Very professional, punctual, and knowledgeable. Recommended.
Havent been to an eye doctor since I was a kid (back when i had glasses) but Dr. Susana Lee was awesome at explaining everything to me. She made sure I got everything checked and hooked me up with some cool cheaply priced glasses. (even though i dont need prescriptions) everyone there was super nice. Had an appt on a Sat, but was seen right away, everyone was very accommodating and I had a very pleasant experience. Would def! go again and recommend to my friends, especially those who actually need glasses ;-p
Everyone at this office is great! The doctor was running a tiny bit behind so they helped me pick out glasses while I waited instead of doing it after my exam. Ended up being quick, easy and thorough.
Susana Lee and her staff were nothing short of fantastic. I entered her office in a bad mood (thanks to a headache that I'd been trying to get rid of for most of the morning) and left with a smile on my face thanks to the great experiences that I had at Odyssey Optical.
Susana was very sweet, attentive, & made me feel comfortable (I'm usually very nervous at any doctor appointment) Definitely reccommend her!
Dr. Lee was great! She really took her time in making sure I had the right fit of contacts and was so personable! I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Lee is great! Super friendly and mindful of your time. She always makes sure I have the rebates for my contacts. I've been seeing her for years and she's great!
She helped me find contacts which actually worked with my astigmatism.
As soon as I sat down, I didn't feel comfortable. As an eyeglass shop, the staff is nice, but very young, and the 20'ish or younger folks were taking my personal information from across the room, for everyone to hear. It's one of the few instances I felt uncomfortable, giving my info. I was seen a half hour after the scheduled appointment time, and while the doctor was nice and provided (somewhat extraneous) background information on contacts, I felt like she was trying to sell me on a different pair of contact lenses the whole time. Again, while the doctor and staff were friendly, I didn't feel my eye doctor appointment was very professional; the store and its staff however, were very helpful in ordering contacts and glasses and were definitely affordable overall. I'm more likely to recommend the place as a store, than for an eye appointment.
I thought Dr. Lee was an extremely patient and caring doctor. I had many, many questions about my eyes, and she was not frustrated or rushed in answering. She was articulate and knowledgeable in her explanations, and when my questions went outside the scope of her expertise, she admitted she did not know and made recommendations as to whom to ask, which I think is the mark of a truly great doctor. The whole staff is very friendly and helpful. I will definitely be back.
After 6 years of living in New York City, I have never encountered such a wonderful optometrist and office. I had a severe eye infection and had recently lost my glasses. I normally go to a doctor on the UWS who is very dry and sometimes speaks in a condescending or scolding tone. The experience is always a very get in/get out/move onto the next patient/I'm too busy and rich to care sort of thing. Dr. Lee's office is nothing like that. She helped me right away. My eyes immediately felt better after taking what she prescribed. I also found a pair of adorable Burberry glasses that looked amazing and I paid a FRACTION of the cost I have paid over the years at places like Cohen's (whose staff can be very rude and charge ridiculous amounts). My prescription is VERY high and even with additional features like high-index lens thinner, it was still affordable at Dr. Lee's office! Overall, Dr. Lee is very kind and didn't waste time scolding me on mistakes I had made in my eye-care. She simply gave me solid advice and found a solution to my problem. She even gave me coupons to use for the eye drops I needed. Her assistants are young, but very sweet and professional. I would recommend her office over any other any day! Even if you don't live in the area, it's worth the travel. Thanks ZocDoc! Note: the office is conveniently located next to CVS if you need to pick up a prescription or eye drops.
Very good, knowledgeable and friendly. A bit on the talkative side but that's fine by me.
The doctor itself was fine. She explained what she was doing and was vry professional. The issue is the front office... it is pretty disorganized. They seemed botheed that I requested some form of itemized receipt so I could file a claim with my vision insurance company. After a while, I was basicaly given a list of the charges on a small notepad sheet.
Very attentive, took her time to explain everything. My wait was nothing, very fast and efficient. Dr Lee was very professional made me feel very comfortable, I definitely recommend her.
She was great, nice and easy to talk to!
Staff is very friendly and very efficient. Had my frames picked out before even seeing the doctor! Doctor was very nice and explained everything she was doing. Highly recommend Dr. Lee.
Dr. Lee is, hands-down, the best optometrist I've ever been to. She's efficient and doesn't waste time, which I appreciate, but also very thorough. You get a sense that she truly cares about her patients by the way she remembers small, yet important things about them. She's also got a great personality... cheerful, with a great sense of humor.
The appointment was easy and went well.. no complaints.
Helpful staff, excellent attitude, great patient/customer experience. She seems to love what she does.
excellent optometerist, professional
Really nice showed concern and was more than willing to go the extra mile to find what's best for me and my budget
This is the way things should work.. Quick, kind and courteous .. Everyone was very professional and worked effectively together..
Told me about rebates available through my insurance, thus saving money. Was nice too.
Did not have to wait at all, everyone was very helpful
Dr Lee and her staff were all very friendly and professional. She answered all my questions and assured me my eyes weren't as bad as I initially thought. I was in and out of there super fast. Five stars all around.
Barely any wait time. Dr. Lee was kind and answered many questions I had. I was very satisfied with the whole experience.
