I called Dr. Wolin's office early in the morning concerned about all of a sudden having floaters....I was told to come into the office immediately.When I arrived I was ushered into the exam room. After my eyes were dialated Dr. Wolin addressed my issue very professionaly ,assured me that I am OK and I left the office with a big smile. I would strongly recommend Dr. Wolin for all of your eye care needs.

Dr. Wolin is not professional. I made new glasses w/ new proscription and can't even read street names with it. Brought it to their attention, but no help. Doctor was yelling at me and said stop comparing two eyes. Actually it was compared by their staff. I am just not comfortable driving with this proscription. Ready to change the doctor.

I would not recommend this practice, as I have had a very bad experience with the optical department not able to properly fit glasses and could not correct the problem. Better service at Lens Crafter or Pearle.

Dr. Wolin is an excellent Ophthalmologist and I would recommend him to all of my family and friends. I brought my daughter there for her first eye exam and he was extremely patient and kind to her. His bedside manner was great! The friendly and knowledgeable staff also made our visit extremely pleasant.
