I feel Dr. Pomeranz is bored with his work and has little interest in his patients Sorry bur true
Great neck, NY |
This Doctor was extremely dismissive. He wasn't thorough at all. I went to him with issues my doctor felt needed to be addressed and he was quick to say I don't have the condition in question. Come to find out a more competent doctor diagnosed me with the condition and i am currently being treated. I would NOT recommend going to him if you care about your health. Total waste of time.

The staff at Dr Pomeranz's office is wonderful! I wish I could say the same about the doctor himself. I felt like I was wasting his time by being there. He didn't answer any of my questions and did not take me seriously. He spent a total of 5 minutes with me, and told me everything was fine even though I am not able to see properly out of my right eye. I will never go back to him again.

I went to Dr. Pomeranz last year and he was very quick to examine my eyes and diagnose me with Glaucoma but I felt very uneasy with his diagnose because I felt that he was to quick and did not care if I had questions. He send me to see another Doctor which she was confused about my results. She kept saying that my records do not look like Glaucoma and so she send me for an MRI. The MRI came out normal. I would not recommend anyone to go see Dr. Pomeranz!!! Go to Stahl Vision in Garden City!
