My experience at Dr. Conenna's office was amazing. The woman who checked me in was so kind. I had a very complex insurance situation that took more than half an hour to sort out. She was so patient and spoke tothe insurance company on my behalf and eventually got it all sorted out. The office manager was a little brusque, as she tried to hurry us along, so that I could be seen, but I understand completely that sh needed to keep to the schedule. When I told her that I really preferred to sort out the insurance business in advance due to bad past experiences, she understood and backed off. Dr. Conenna herself was truly fantastic. She gave me the most thorough exam I've received to date, and took the time to explain everything along the way. She also helped me understand that the type of contacts I'm used to wearing were causing slightly blurry vision and could have been the source of my headaches. She worked with me to try several new types and the ones we settled on are infinitely more comfortable. I'm very pleased with the overall experience!

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 helpfuland kind, answering all questions with patience and care. Loved her!

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 wasa 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 isa 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!

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 eyeirritation 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.
