Kearny, NJ |
She is a fantastic doctor and lovely person. Generally the visit is an hour. Some waiting room, possibly time with a nurse answering questions or a vision chart or eye pressure test, depending on how busy the Dr. is. Once in a while is so busy you spend 2 plus hours in total, possibly because there were emergency patients that day, in which case your TIME spent there is terrible, but Dr. Prystowsky is worth it.

I waited over two hours to be seen by this doctor. My appointment was at 5 pm and I was not seen until 7 pm. Absolutely ridiculous and no respect for my time. Switching to another doctor.
