Verified Patient Reviews
The Doctor is very thorough!
Excellent experience with Dr. Tai. She identified a new problem, carefully explained her findings without alarming me, ordered an office test, and asked me to return for follow up in 2 months. I left the office feeling grateful for Dr. Tai and her staff.
Great doctor and very thorough.
One of the best eye exams.very nice doctor.she will be my eye specialist from now on.
Dr. Tai took her time with me, was patient and friendly and explained the information about the surgery I needed and gave me some things to read so that I was well informed. I knew I needed surgery, and she eased my mind that it was better to have it done sooner rather than later. The wait and visit took about an hour, I had to fill out a bunch of paperwork, but that's the norm for any new patient. Her assistant who saw me first was also very friendly and helpful.
Very professional with excellent manner.
I had a very good visit with this doctor. Everyone was very professional and treated me very well. Dr. Tai explained what was happening and the whole experience was just fine. I would highly recommend this office and this particular doctor. The only thing that I was a little unhappy with was that I filled out all the paperwork on line, but had to do it all over again at the office. Oh, well.
Dr. Tai was very thorough and informative about my particular set of circumstances. I would choose to see her again should there be a situation in the same area or in her particular area of expertise. I plan on working with them again for corrective lenses.
EXCELLENT DOCTOR. SUPERB ASSISTANT. MY NIECE CAME WITH ME AND AGREES THAT SHE DID THE MOST THOROUGH EXAMINATION.
This was the most thorough and stress free eye exam that I have ever had! Dr. Tai and her staff work together to satisfy all concerns and answer all questions. Thank you, Dr. Tai and Julie. I will be back next year.
I totally recommend Dr. Tai she is professional, smart, knowledgebal, and treat everybody with respect. This is my second visit. I love the way she explains everything. Also her asistant at NY eye and ear in E 15 st in brooklyn is helpful and knowledgable .
Great visit! I went in for a general eye exam as I had not been in four years. I needed a new prescription so my visit was pretty straight forward and routine. However, the technician who did my general eye testing before I met with the doctor was very thorough and did a great job explaining everything that he was going to do. Very gentle when putting in eye drops and just overall very attentive. Dr. Tania was great as well. Again very thorough and clear with all the information she gave me. Overall this was a really great check up and now I am shopping for new eye glasses!
My aunt (87 years young) visited Dr. Tai for consultation on glaucoma problem. We were pleased with her expertise and advice. She addressed my aunt's overall health and how it could interact with her vision problems! We highly recommend her.
She was very professional, and she took time to explain some things; other Eye Doctors never told me about my eyes! I felt very relaxed and trusting of her to do the eye examination. Her Waiting Area had a nice decorum,very pleasant. The staff was friendly and efficient, they checked me in, and put me into see Dr. Tai in a very timely fashion!! I felt good about my visit to this office!!
