My new opthomologist confirmed that Dr. Appleman gave me the WRONG PRESCRIPTION!! He doesn't even use the industry standard final results glasses demo which my new, great optho used for both reading and distance. He is rude and arrogant andwould not explain to me what he was doing and went to plop eye drops in without even telling me what they were for and then told me I was "getting" the eye drops! Really? Rushed, rude and incompetent, had to keep going over his results. When I called their office to speak about the WRONG PRESCRIPTION they never called me back, many times.

Dr. Appleman is a rarity among ophthalmologists: He has a personality. In field as precise and intricate as this one, technical skill is paramount, but this doctor has it all: experience, skill, and humanity.

The appointment was very good experience overall. The receptionist was very helpful and efficient. The doctor was extremely thorough in my check up and took the time to explain the problems to me in detail after. He also took the timeto answer my questions and gave me samples of eye drops to use. No additional services were discussed or pushed onto me as I have read in reviews for other ophthalmologists.

From the moment I walked into Dr. Applemans office, I was greeted by his friendly receptionist Trish. Dr. Appleman is professional, knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. He was very thorough ,and never dismissed any of my questions that Iasked throughout out my exam. I've been to two other ophthalmologists in the New York City,and they were not as thorough,compassionate and knowledgeable as I felt Dr. Appleman was. I highly recommend him

Very promotional, no patience to explain options but only to sell additional procedures and services, impatient, generally unpleasant. No doubt he is a very competent doctor. In a city with choices, why?

Dr. Appleman was wonderful. I walked in with a swollen, teary, red eye and he was careful, patient and thorough! He took the time to dye my eye twice, to find a extremely small corneal abrasion. He also test my vision,eye pressure etc. It felt like a complete eye exam! I will be going to him from now on for all my annual checkups!!

Very concise, very informative, I had a migraine that I thought was an eye infection symptom that i actually had previously. He really took the time and care to get rid of my idea that it was an infection. Prescribed beeye drops that would help me get rid of the migraines and also antibiotic eye drops just in case another infection were to occur.

His vast medical knowledge as well as thoroughness instills gratitude and confidence. His grasp of all things regarding my eyes as well as many other branches of medicine makes him a most valuable resource. He knows many other doctors and thatmade me feel great because I needed a referral as well. He has perfect balance of seriousness, kindness and uncommon common sense.
