He was so kind the only thing I didn't like was that I filled everything out on Zocdoc and I still had to wait 30 minutes and fill something out, but overall I got my glasses in two weeks and he was kind and fast

On the day of my exam everything was fine. I was seen within 15-30 minutes of arriving and the time of my appointment. The Dr. was efficient and polite. After the exam is an entirely different story though. I ordered new glasses through a website recommended by my insurance provider and it has proved almost impossible to get my prescription sent to them. After multiple attempts from the company, I have almost completely lost hope. Fine enough if you plan on having all services completed here. If anything else, look elsewhere for your eye doctor.

This negative experience is partly Zocdoc's fault : This was not a routine check up, I specifically marked 'floaters' in the form, which is a medical visit; not a check up. Not only is the doctor not a specialist in this area but the appointment needed a PRIOR referral from my primary care doctor. One should not be able to book an appointment BEFORE a referral actually takes place; the system should not allow the appointment to happen. Also, if the doctor is not a specialist in an area , why is he listed as someone who could evaluate the matter? Due to all of the above, the doctor could not evaluate me and it was a waste of time for all parties involved.

The wait is normal. The tests we did seems pretty simple, not comprehensive or detailed at all. I went there for an annual eye check. Not sure if the annual check only includes Slit Lamp Exam, The Glaucoma Test, Visual Acuity Tests, and Refraction by default at this facility. I did similar annual check somewhere else and it had much more tests.
