Great ophthalmologist. I've seen her for check-ups, I've had cataract surgery with her and everything has been great. She is a skilled professional, supportive, friendly, everything you would want in a doctor.

Had an eye irritation (which I had examined at urgent care two days prior) that prompted this appointment as a new patient - needed a new ophthalmologist so took first available appt. with Dr. Brissette at the Soho location. I was scheduled for 10:15 - was seen at 10:15. Started with all typical intake by assistant who was pleasant and thorough. Dr. Brissette saw me after - was personable, listened to my concerns, asked good questions. I found her to be the type of eye care physician I was hoping to find. I hope that the experience is as good at the uptown east side location as it is more convenient for me.
