BEWARE! Make sure to keep all your OLD insurance information and receipts because they will send you bill from 6 years ago saying that you did not have any insurance when you visited them, even though you had one at the time of your visit.. Stay away if you can. It took them months of following-up to get a call back and explanation. Basically they just told me to pay up because it's to late to file for insurance. Now I'm responsible for their incompetencies.

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.
