Awesome !!!! Brutally honest and understanding. I have specific special requirements that restricted him from doing his job too the full extent and he totally understood. I recently had an exam 2 days prior in another place and I never want to go their again !!

Dr. Viren Patel was thorough. He was kind, patient and explained all the testing step by step, including the results. My daughter is 4 and was recommended to see an eye specialist. The reviews were great for Dr. Patel so Ischeduled an appointment. All the forms were available to be filled out online before the appointment so it made it a lot easier once we arrived in the office. The staff I encountered was great as well. Will definitely recommend this Dr to friends and family.

Everyone was very nice, from the front desk, to the techs, to the lady at the eye glasses desk and to the doctor himself. Dr Patel gave great advice, which will probably save me money in the long run. I look forward to my next check up.

He definitely rushed me out. He presented me with somethingI have never heard of and when contemplating to do it or not he said something along the lines of, “hurry up and decide I have other patients waiting.” I thought hewas nice and helpful but he didn’t have to make everything so quick.

I am very much pleased by the professionalism of Dr.Patel and front desk staff. They inform you well about insurance, efficient paper work and I was timely seen by doctor. Dr.Patel is very kind and explains everything clearly. Also they havea nice collection of glasses (even very high end) that I finally decided to have my new pair of glasses from here. I am very much pleased by this visit. I strongly recommend him and this office.

Super friendly and enthusiastic staff. The wait time was around 30 minutes but that was ok because the doctor and staff's efforts really pay it off. I understand because when i arrived at the office it was kinda busy. Dr. VirenPatel was very informative and he gave thorough explaination about lenses, options that i have for my eyeglasses. He checked my eyes very thoroughly. I highly recommend Dr. Patel if you want your eyes checked.

Fortunately other doctors at Bronx Eye Associates made up for this very rude and inhospitable doctor. When I went to simply ask him a question, I was dismissed with a shrug and "you'll be seen, when you are seen". If itwerent for the staff apologizing and making up for his lack of customer service, I would dismiss the whole place all together. Thankfully, I will be back, just not to see him.

I didn't see Dr. Patel, but instead, was seen by Dr. Simona Korik-Barrett. Everyone was very professional and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Bronx Eye Associates. I was able to get an Eye Exam, new Eyeglasses and continue treatment for Glaucoma. Very well run.
