He was very polite and patient with me. I really appreciated the service and I never felt uncomfortable in his presence. The frame selection was fairly decent with a wide range of shapes. The turnaround time for glasses is unfortunately 10days, hopefully they can improve on this in the future but otherwise great service!

For comprehensive eye exam is fine. If you have questions or smth concerns you, you should tell that. What’s your own feeling. He cannot make guesses. After all you are going to wear the glasses and you should know your eyes better.

I went to Dr. Zhu because I had very sudden onset of symptoms that I wanted to get checked out. I found him on ZocDoc and saw that his reviews were positive. He was able to make the appointment for methe same day at 5:30pm. However, when I got there, he did not introduce himself, but was more concerned about making sure that my insurance would go through. It was only after I had made the co-pay that he introduced himself to me. Then, we began the exam. It was a pretty standard exam, but I felt that my concerns were not listened to. He only dilated my eyes when I had asked him to do so, which tells me he wouldn't have if I hadn't asked him to do so. He also didn't check my pressure at all- even after I had told him that I've been feeling a lot of pressure on my eyes and getting headaches. He did take a topography picture of my eyes since I had had LASIK last summer. Overall, it was very rushed and I did not feel that it was a thorough review and I was quite disappointed by his lack of care. In response to my concerns regarding my symptoms, he just said, "Try to take a break from using electronics and cutting screen time." However, I had told him earlier that none of my routines had changed.

I was seen a little over 30 min after my scheduled time. I was not, however, seen by Xinsheng Zhu. I was instead seen by another women who worked at the office. She was nice and had a kind bedside mannerbut was not the doctor I was expecting. They did not have the full selection of contacts I asked for (dailys vs weeklys in different brands w/ astigmatism).
