Viktorya Belenkova is the best doctor I've met in Manhattan so far. She has perfect bedside manner: she explains things to you, listens to your concerns, gives advice, does not get distracted by anyone else while she is working on you and is not rushing you. Her front desk staff is very welcoming, polite and helpful. It was also my shortest wait time ever - I was seen right away, barely had time to fill out the papers. I definitely recommend this doctor.

Dr. Belenkova is amazing. She asked me about me questions to try to see how often I used my eyesight and/or strained it. She suggested that I try to work further away from my computer and listened to my concerns regarding a "floater" I saw in my right eye. She followed up with me to perform additional testing to ensure my eyes were okay and thankfully, they were. But if they weren't, I knew they would be in good hands. I am happy I found an eye doctor I can trust.

Dr Belenkova answered all of my questions comprehensively (which had tallied up for 2 years since my previous eye doctor effectively answered 0 questions). I did not feel rushed at all. The front desk personnel were nice and helpful as well. All charges were explained prior to the appointment which in my experience has been rare practice. I will be happy to go back there next year.

I went in for a contact eye exam. Dr. Viktorya was very sweet and knowledgeable. Her exam was pretty quick and to the point which I appreciate. I've been wear contacts for 18 years so I would rather be in and out and get on with life. I didn't have to wait at all. Staff was friendly and quick. Only down side would be that they are pretty pricey, even with insurance. I couldn't believe the price for just the exam! EEK! But that's NYC for you.

I hadn't been to see an optometrist in what was probably a bit too long of an amount of time and was glad I went to Dr. Viktorya! She had been recommended to me by a friend, and she had received the recommendation from a coworker. In other words, highly recommended! The office is very clean and reception staff was friendly and prompt with service. I didn't wait long and Dr. Viktorya provided a very thorough exam with just the right amount of explanation of what she was seeing and what I should be doing. Great overall experience!

Dr. Belenkova really did nothing to help me resolve my vision issues. She stated that it was not her area of expertise and pawned me off onto another doctor within her practice to recieve a service that was not covered by "any insurance". I was not satisfied by my visit and felt that I was let down and I will now have to seek treatment elsewhere.

Doctor Belenkova was good. She had good bedside manner, and was professional. But, I have to say the front desk was very unorganized and unprofessional. They didn't represent the company very well. I would ask a question and they'd give me one answer, and then a minute later change their minds about what I'd asked. They didn't seem confident in their jobs. Doctor was good, but office seemed hectic and unorganized.

I liked Doctor Belenkova. She gave me what I came in for, a new glasses prescription. But her front desk was very unorganized and almost rude. They seemed stressed and it made me stressed as well.

The front desk lady who helped me was not intelligent at all. I had called three times to confirm if they checked my insurance and when I got there, she said she didn't know if they took my insurance even though I had been there before and called two days before! I had to call my carrier to get on the phone with her and explain that she took my coverage. My doctor was very thorough and I was happy with that part of the visit however when I was picking out glasses afterwards, the gentleman (who was very friendly and I thought was being helpful) only showed me the high end frames to choose from so I had to a lot out of pocket expenses - when I turned the corner I saw a bunch of other frames that weren't brand name that I could have chosen from but it was too late, he had already run my credit card and submit the order! That's on me as well but I'm still happy with my selection even if it was a bit more.
