Patient Comments (2)
in New York, NY |
Booked for 1pm appointment, arrived 10 minutes early, and waited an hour. 40 minutes into waiting, I asked when I might be seen, and the receptionist said, You just got here! No apology, just hat. The waiting room was completely filled with people. Clearly they just schedule lots of people regardless of actual availability.

It was the worst. 1 hr 40 min initial wait, so had to go feed my 2 hrs meter. Then without ever being asked what I was there for I got an eyeglass prescription and not a word. So I said I don't need this I came for contact lenses. Oh I don't do that, the doctor said the girls will take care of you. Well I will cut it short, the girl would not take the same insurance I handed over originally and which covers contact lenses. Then they gave wrong price info on top and wrong type of lense.
