Excellent experience from office examination through cataract surgery on both eyes. State of the art eye examination in office. Modern, efficient surgical facility; proficient, intelligent, and caring staff at both sites. Knowledgeable doctor with admirable patient interaction. Outcome better than anticipated by me. Lovely location on Fifth Avenue near Metropolitan Museum.

Absolutely outstanding. Not only was my physician, Dr. Andrew Schwartz, thorough and competent, but an ancillary staff with all the very latest equipment for a thorough eye exam. BY far the most thorough and comprehensive eye exam I ever had.
