What People Say About Dr. Bruce Silverstein, MD
Reply
the poor rating that I gave was for the way his optometric shop screwed up my glasses and didn't want to fix the problem and for the way the doctor didn't not intervene to make it right. He has lost the one and only person that knew everything about glasses and his name is Ron and instead he has hired a bunch of young girls for minimum wage who know nothing about glasses. They screwed up my order and when my glasssarrived I was extremely disappointed. will not recommend his glass shop.
