Dr Lam did a great job, however I was disappointed to find that instead of a real doctor's office this was inside of Cohen's Fashion Optical. The salespeople pressured me to buy frames at the end of my appointment... which is not why I was there.

Everything went well with my visit. Both Dr. Lam and her staff were friendly and carefully explained both the finances and procedures. Do not try to book at their 825 Broadway location through Zocdoc though. Something about the two schedulingsystems does not sync up well and I had to reschedule twice before I was able to get a real appointment.

This office is within Cohen's Fashion Optical (not obvious from the info on zocdoc). Overall don't recommend. The location smelled really bad. The staff didn't really acknowledge my appointment, didn't feel very structured. The paperworkI filled out entailed redundant basic information across multiple forms (and I was still asked other q's like DOB while I was filling it out). I asked a question about getting a referral and it was not passed from provider to front desk- I had to remind the provider and go back to the exam room to get the info.

It took maybe 15 minutes to get me processed, but the visit itself was great. Very professional, she answered all my questions, and it was conveniently located!

Everyone in the office was very helpful during my visit. Service was prompt, and I did not have to wait at all. The technician was able to readjust my current glasses (not purchased here) to fit my face. During my eyeexamination, Dr. Lam was very helpful in explaining various procedures that I had not previously asked my former optometrists. Her demeanor was very inviting and friendly. She was also helpful in determining that my previous prescription from a different optometrist was over prescribed. Lastly, she convinced me to consider contacts as they are a better fit for my lifestyle (gym etc.) and I love the decision! I would highly recommend Dr. Lam for your eye visits!

I would highly recommend Dr. Lam. I feel that the exam went very smoothly, and she was able to answer all the questions related to my symptoms. Previously I’ve had mixed experiences getting my eyes checked, but Dr. Lam was professionaland very personable, and the appointment did not feel at all rushed. Also, the associate that did my first tests was very nice. Good experience overall!

Dr. Lam is amazing. Very smart and helped me find the right prescription for my eyes I was able to also get an extra free pair of glasses as well. I'm actually really happy with the service I received.
