I really enjoyed seeing this Doctor today! She was very concerned and pleasant to talk to about my eye care. I would love to see her again about any concerns I have. I also would like to thank her for referring me to a nice Retina Specialist. Thank You!
Slight hiccup with retrieving completed forms from Zocdoc but otherwise I was seen right away. Staff pleasant and efficient.
doctor is great. Very knowledgeable and is also a people person. i am very satisfied with her.
Office staff is very professional, polite and friendly. Office is clean. Dr. Julia Giyaur pays attention to all complaints and questions of patient, spends a lot of time to explain your eyes' condition and her recommendations. That's why you may have to wait some time before you see doctor, but this is not important if compare with high quality of doctor's service.
The Visit was great. The people working for Dr. Julia were very polite. Dr. Julia herself has bedside Manor and takes her time to answer your questions.
Great Dr I'm very happy with my visit
The whole experience was great! Everyone was friendly and professional. The assistants were helpful and efficient. The doctor answered all of my concerns. She definitely will stay my regular eye doctor.
Good doc! She is nice and smart but too long of a wait!! Everything is so dragged out!
Very knowledgeable about everything with glasses contacts your vision overall. She is definitely my only eye doctor.
Very thorough evaluation, her assistants are very professional and is Dr. Giyaur. Definitely will recommend others to come here.
Doc very thorough and knows her stuff
I would never come here again
Dr. Giyaur is wonderful. She's attentive and friendly. Her assistants are all lovely. Clean, bright, spacious office. Always a long wait, but it's worth it to me.
The only thing that is a small problem is the location of the office. She is on a bus route but parking is a problem on Coney Island Avenue. It is a crowded street. Otherwise, she is really good and I would recommend her to anyone. She is very thorough.
I had two kids, one of which is 4 years old. I had no problem waiting because we were new patients. It was a good experience. The doctor and staff were nice. My 4 year old son responded well to them, and he is rather wary of all doctors.
Very knowledgeble and attentive doctor. She explained everything about my disease from A to Z. I will be going back to see her
Very thorough, took time to talk to me about different options, and recommended a new prescription that would help me see a lot better, as my last pair had been the wrong prescription. Highly recommended.
Felt very relaxed and professional environment.
I felt confident with the doctor. Excellent manner. Patient and pleasant.
Very professional . Would recommend her .
The dr was very professional and knowledgable. And the staffs were also professional and nice !
They are fantastic!
Dr. Giyaur was great and very professional, but at the same time made me feel very comfortable.....Def...a great experience.
She's my favorite
Doctor Giyaur was truly great. Clean office and a very nice staff. I would highly recommend.
Excellent and professional
I think she is very knowledgeable and professional. It was nice to hear possible choices for my problem and explaining thorougly what each choice means. The doctor also gave me an advice that I should choose for my treatment.
Very good doctor. Great bedside manner... Keeps you well informed
Excellent patient care skills.
Very nice doctor. the wait time is less than in other offices. Very professional and helpful.
Horrible, the total time required for the appointment was 2 and a half hours - for a general eye exam. Yeah. It was awful. Never again.
She has all the qualities that a doctor should have.she is kind.
She takes the time to explain EVERYTHING. I badgered her with many questions and she took time to put it in layman's terms to explain what was happening to my eye.
I always enjoy my time with Dr. Giyaur. She has a very nice office space in Coney Island. She's personable and her staff is friendly as well. I've come to realize that going as early in the day as possible is best when it comes to visiting her office though.
Dr. Julia Giyaur was very nice as was her assistant. However, waiting 2 hours after appointment time to finish is way too long, and her receptionist is rude.
understood exactly what my problem was and looked for solutions
I liked her but it didn't make up for the enormous wait time. I got there at 2:10 and didn't leave till around 4:15, maybe 4:30. My face time with her total consisted of maybe 10 minutes, maybe 15. If I go back, I'll schedule my appointment for early, because a lot of people accumulated in the waiting room.
Dr. Giyaur was very courteous and took her time checking my eyes
i think shes fantastic always enjoy seeing her
She Was very attentive to details concerning my exam and the reason for my visit, i did not feel rushed and all my concerns were adressed. i have another appt. in 2 weeks.
I felt very confident that she knows exactly what she's doing as well as her assistant. They were very helpful in giving me the information I needed to know for me to consider getting Lasik surgery as well as my financing options. This visit was a follow up visit for being a glaucoma suspect and if I am a good candidate for lasik.... I've decided that I will get this work done within the next month with her.
she was great!
beautiful and well equipped office, nice staff. the doctor was attentive and caring. would highly recommend.
This is the second time I have visited Dr. Giyaur. The staff was nice and the Dr. herself plesant enough. She was late for our appointment which ended up in me having about an hours wait. She seemed more rushed this time then the last visit where I had been late. But overall it was a good experience and she's a very knowledgable doctor. I will be visiting her again.
Dr. Giyaur is a very nice and knowledgeable doctor. She was able to diagnose and treat my eye problem that 2 other eye doctors did not help me with. She was very pleasant, explained the condition and its treatment in a very thorough manner. The office is very modern and comfortable. The staff at the front desk was very helpful. There was minimal wait time prior to me seeing the doctor. I would definitely recommend Dr. Giyaur to anyone who is looking for an eye doctor.
I saw Dr. Giyaur for an eye emergency. She was able to accomodate me despite a busy schedule and there being a lot of patients in the office that evening. The front desk personnel was very helpful in scheduling of my appointment. Dr. Giyaur examined my eye and prescribed the treatment eye drops and took time to explain everything. She seems very experienced and knowledgeable. She really seems to care about her patients. My eye improved right away with treatment. I would go back to her if I need an eye doctor again.
The wait was very long even there were only 2 people before me. Kind of slow... The doctor is nice.
Service is great,Her care was excellent and the Clinic staff was wonderful. Dr. Julia Giyaur is an excellent Doctor. P.s I appriecate all her hard work!.
I've seen many doctors for my eyes over the past 5 months, she was the most helpful out of all of them!
She was efficient, and knowledgeable. The doctor took her time and explained clearly what is wrong.
Nice Staff, friendly assistant and quality doctor! Looking forward to my next visit!
The doctor was very professional,I was told what I needed to know and I was giving all the options on how to help fix my problem.
Dr. Giyaur listened very attentively to my explanation of my eye symptoms and gave me a very thorough eye examination. There was no guesswork. The office is equipped with the latest medical testing equipment and it is used expertly to assist in examining complaints and coming up with an accurate fact based diagnosis. Dr. Giyaur explained thoroughly her findings and her treatment plans. A rarely seen concern of hers is the cost of medication and she made sure that my prescription plan will adequately cover the cost of the prescriptions that she prescribed. She displayed a compassionate demeanor and bedside manner and made me feel comfortable and confident in her medical skills. I would recommened her to everyone who asks for a recommendation for an excellent eye doctor.
Dr. Giyaur is a great doctor and does a fabulous job of explaining things; however, the wait time was almost 2 hrs to be seen the first time and then, I waited almost another full hour after my eyes were dialated to see her again and finish the appointment. I would rather be told by the office staff when i check in if there is such a significant delay so i can decide to reschedule or at least come back later.
Dr. Giyaur was excellent! She diagnosed my dry eye that had been missed for the past 4 years. I would highly recommend her. Only recommendation for other patients would be to bring a book and several quarters for theparking meters.
it was perfect everyone is really nice and my wait was really short will make her my primary eye physician
Dr. Guyaur was very friendly and thorough at the same time. She explained to me about my situation in a very calm and understanding manner. She was great!
i was extremly happy with staff at office and doctor...great experience
I had a great visit with Dr. Juila Giyaur... I did not have to wait long and i love her bedside manner she will be my new eye doctor and i would recommend her to everyone i know....
I highly recommend this doctor.
She was very nice and had a very clean office. Would tell all my friends to go to this office.
VERY NICE DOCTOR.EXCELLENT SERVICE.

Doctor Giyaur Rubinshteyn MD and staff are to be commended for their professionalism, compassion and over all attentiveness to my questions,concerns and needs. I will highly recommend Doctor Giyaur-Rubinshteyn, MD to all who seek her services.
I was ontime for my appt and she had two other people waiting for her. It was at least a 20-30 minute wait. However, she was great!!! She explained things well, was patient and efficient. I suggest taking the first morning appt and showing up a little early just to make sure you're first online.
