Not only was Wendy Josephs terrific to work with, her staff was as nice, as helpful and reassuring. Wendy approached my care with my lifestyle in mind and actually proposed a change that will likely impact my vision and use of contacts and glasses with the best results. I have never had such a positive experience with an OD and will return regularly for all my exams and eye care needs.

Dr. Josephs was extremely professional and thorough. I felt she really took the time to help me understand the entire process during my examination. Also, later I called her to ask a question and she was happy to answer. An overall positive experience!

This was the worst experience I've ever had at the eye doctor. She was rude, condescending, and apparently everything I've been doing for the past 18 years of my life with contacts is wrong. I will never see her again and I highly suggest you never see her either.

I booked for Dr. Joseph's but when I reached there got to know that some other junior doc would be attending. That was not expected. They should have atleast informed in advance if there was any change.

Wendy is fantastic! I highly recommend her. Not only is she smart and professional, she's also very warm and welcoming. Plus, there was literally no wait time at her office.

She's just not a nice person. She is rude, and treats her customers as if they are bothering her when they show up for an appointment. Obviously does not enjoy her job. She wouldn't even allow me to choose the kind of contact lenses I wanted! She told the clerk what lenses to order me, and specifically told him not to order any of the lenses that my insurance covered! Go somewhere else unless you enjoy being treated with contempt.

This was a great experience. Walked in exactly at the time of my appointment and was helped right away. The man who handles incoming patients is warm, friendly, and very helpful. Wendy herself is funny and nice, and the appointment was extremely efficient. At the end they gave me my prescription without too much pressure to buy contacts or glasses through the shop, which I really appreciated.

Dr, Josephs was nice enough. I went in for an annual glasses and contacts exam as I had recently moved to New York and I did not have a copy of my previous prescriptions. She checked my current glasses at the beginning of the appointment and at the end basically said the prescription is exactly the same but she wasn't sure about the contacts. I have a high astigmatism and my contacts have to be special ordered. She placed an order for a trial pair. 4 weeks later I get a call that they came in. I go pick them up and she tells me to wear them for a week then come back, she also asks to find my previous prescription or call my old office and see if I can get it from them. I thought that was kind of weird but said ok. I try on the contacts the next morning and everything is blurry. I think my eyes maybe need to adjust so I keep them on until I get to work and realize there is no way I can do any work on my computer because I am straining so hard to see. I take them out and call the office to make another appt. I go in and tell her what happened and shes like well we can order another pair but without your previous prescription I don't have anything to go on. --- ummm how about the contacts exam I spent all that $ on? she does another 'which is better A or B' type test and puts in another order for trials. About a week later I actually find my old prescription and call the office to tell them. The girl takes the info and says she will just cancel the trials already ordered and will place an order with the old script...and have me come in... AGAIN. I go in again once those trials come in.. get them.. put them in, say I can see much better than the previous ones and she just writes the same prescription that I already had and asks if I want to pay them now to place the order. So basically I used my yearly exam and paid for a contact exam for no reason because she just used my previous info. I'm sure for people without extreme eye issues Dr. Josephs would be great but for me it was sort of a waste. If you have extreme cases I would go elsewhere.

Just weird... She made me come in for a follow up before she agreed to write a prescription for her recommended contacts, and the same contacts I've been using for years. She also mentioned something about thoroughness in her method with a passive aggressive attitude. I just want a prescription so I can get my more contacts.
