Patient Comments (3)
in Livingston, NJ |
We have been going to Dr. Norbert Schacter for over 15 years. In my life, I have never met a smarter eye doctor or genuinely loves what he does. Dr. Schacter is our favorite doctor . My husband and two sons agree. If you have trouble communicating with the office for whatever reason, this Dr. Answers his own phone after hours. He is a master...
Incompetence, disorganization, arrogance, rudeness, bad temper, average wait time minimum 45 minutes.

An old fashioned doctor in the very best sense of the term. Takes time, is thorough and inspires confidence.
