She’s the best! Supportive, explains everything clearly and really cares about you as a person. Highly recommend her for all of your eye care needs.
Exactly what I needed in an eye checkup. Be prepared to be there for a while but they do a good job of moving you through each stage of your appointment.
I have been going to Dr. Conenna for many years and love her. She is friendly and nice. I would recommend her.
I was actually rescheduled for Dr. Nadine (Jamal) Eisenberg, OD and she was amazing. She knew her stuff! I came in worried about my vision and left feeling assured that everything is fine. Dr. Nadine (Jamal) Eisenberg, OD is my new optometrist!!!
Dr. Conenna was incredibly patient and professional. She made picking out new contacts a breeze and I felt that I was being attended to and rushed in any way. Highly recommend.
Dr. Conenna, Has been taking care of my eyes for years, she is a warm and caring practitioner and I would not trust my eye health to anyone else.

Dr. Conenna and her team are highly professional, thorough, and efficient. I feel my eyes are well cared for.
Th office staff and other Doctors were so incredibly friendly, that has never happened before in NY. The office was great and Dr. Connena was fantastic, so down to earth and so gentle, even made me feel so comfortable. What a great find!
She is super nice and I have great experiences with my visits. Professional staff and no wait time. I would recommend to others.
Overall the staff was very nice but I waited longer than I expected and didn't have time to look at glasses. Need to schedule another visit just to select glasses which I was disappointed by.
Very knowledgable and professional. Gave me some insight and updates with my prescription. Would definitely recommend.
Dr. Conenna was wonderful. I discovered when I arrived that the office did not accept a version of my insurance to cover contact lense/eye glass fitting without a fee, but I stayed for a check-up anyway. The doctor was extremely helpful and kind, answering all questions with patience and care. Loved her!
pretty perfect in every way!
Dr. Conenna was very thorough, patient, and just lovely!
Dr. Conenna manages to use both her high skill level, and wonderful warmth to make her a pleasure to work with. I trust Dr. Conenna completely. She is both thorough and thoughtful.
She was very friendly and answered all my questions. Great!
I am not the easiest person when it comes to the eye doctor however, Conenna made the process very comfortable and stress free. Definitely will recommend to my friends.
Dr. Conenna is always attentive, thorough, very helpful and reassuring. I wish all my medical providers were as good as she!

She is terrific...great doctor.
She's terrific: she has patiently helped me find contacts that work for age-related short-sightedness, which is a joy and convenience I appreciate greatly.
I would recommend dr. Conenna to my best friend!
She was amazing. Very thourough and patient. She explained everything I needed to know. I've been searching for a good eye doctor for years and I finally found one!
Overall, had a good experience. Dr. Conenna was very friendly and helpful. The front desk staff seemed overwhelmed and were not as helpful as would have been appreciated; however it was a busy time of day for my appointment.
There was a bit of a delay in checking in, although that might have been because I was a new patient. Once we started, Vanessa was very professional and friendly. She did a careful job and actually determined that there was a different contact curvature that would be more comfortable and better for my eyes.
I just moved to NYC and was due for an eye appointment. I heard about zoc doc 5 days ago and made a random appointment with Dr. Conenna. All i can say is WOW. I had an amazing experience. She is a true professional. The whole staff was so kind and helpful! I didn't think I had eye coverage (I did) and they saved a couple hundred dollars. I truly recommend her anyone looking for quality eye care!
She's the absolute sweetest and incredibly knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend.
She was very attentive and knowledgeable. I am happy to have her as my eye doctor.
She was extremely thorough. There were concerns about one of the test results, so she had it done over so she could be sure. Both her and her staff are efficient and personable.
Great, friendly staff.
Dr Conenna was great and answered all my questions. Also all the staff working there was very polite and did a great job.
Dr. Conenna was very professional and knowledgeable. She made me feel very comfortable and made me want to come back and see her again which I will!
Total pro, great disposition very informative. I'll put it this way even though I wear glasses/contacts I feel very good about my vision leaving the office.
Wonderful bedside manner, very warm and immediately lovable. The staff was also very friendly.
Very friendly and gave detailed explanation when asked.
warm, courteous & a very professional doctor.
I've finally found a competent, patient, and well-mannered primary eye doctor in Dr. Conenna. She is knowledgeable and takes the time to explain everything in detail.
Very nice and professional
Very professional. Will go there next time again.
Best doctor I've ever seen. Amazing diagnostician.
I would recommend using this eye doctor. This was my first visit to an eye doctor and I was very impressed with the service I received. They were very helpful in choosing which glasses suit me, ordered them and then sent them directly to my apartment.
Very knowledgable and gets right down to business. Some people would prefer a more chit-chatty doctor, but as long as she knows her stuff, I'm fine without having to sit and make small talk about my hobbies. I'd been having eye irritation for a long time (dryness, redness, etc.), and switching contact brands/prescriptions/lenses didn't help. She noticed a small infection that I'd apparently had for a while, but no other doctors had noticed. She helped me take care of it and my eyes felt a TON better. I definitely trust her with my vision.
She was very knowledgable and took the time to explain everything to my mother in Spanish. She was great!
Dr. Conenna was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would visit her again.
She was great-super friendly, helpful and professional. My only negative comment is that I had to wait around 20 minutes.
Great, friendly staff...very quick in/out but thorough.
Professional, kind, thorough, and knowledgeable...
Dr. Conenna was helpful, above and beyond, a great listener, with an easy-going caring manner.
Dr. Conenna was absolutely fab! She is uber friendly, knowledgeable and patient. She is genuinely concerned about her patients and seeks to address all questions.
