Terrible, unfriendly, and rude office staff. No complains against Dr. Clancy
in Ridgewood, NJ |
Dreadful experience-- visit for new eyeglass script and new contact script. Told to return for separate contacts exam-- for addt'l $125. Wanted green contacts-no sample available--fitted me with clear contacts to check script effectiveness I offered to try any color for fitting purposes--told NO--must return upon receipt of green lenses in 2 days-- sample didn't arrive--said Send me Script--will go elsewhere-Told script can only be for clear lenses which I don't want.

I have been seeing Dr. Clancy for many, many years and have had appointments in several of his offices. He always takes time to listen to and my answer questions, and does not rush through exams. His staff has always been pleasant.
in Port Chester, NY |
My wife got an eye lash stuck deep under her eyelid and Dr. Clancy was able to see her right away. I am very thankful that his office was able to fit her in on a busy Friday. He was very pleasant to deal with and was very patient with answering our questions. We are long time patients that have followed him to the new office in Wyckoff and have always had great experiences with both the doctor and his staff.

AWFUL! Dr. Clancy took my insurance and copay for a COVERED appointment. His office did not try to submit to my insurance co, Horizon BCBS, until almost 2 YEARS after my visit. Horizon BCBS, denied paying him because he submitted TOO Late. He sent ME to a collection agency for this visit, THAT WAS COVERED, he just DID'NT Submit in a timely manner! Jody, the office manager, said she wouldn't take me out of collection unless I gave her a check! I contacted NJ Better Business Bureau.

I am a 68 year old Vietnam veteran who's vision suddenly became extremely blurry. I could barely see. Dr. Clancy told me that I had cateracts in both eyes. He explained in great detail what that meant, and how to correct my vision. Two surgeries were scheduled, one for each eye.The results were amazing! I have 20/20 vision in both eyes, and I now see the world in vibrant colors and light! He is an incredible surgeon. My daughter is now a patient also.
in Mahwah NJ |
I highly recommend Dr. Clancy. My four year old son is his patient. It's not easy to give a four year old an eye exam. Dr. Clancy and his staff were so thoughtful and caring about the process. Dr. Clancy was very thorough and took time to explain the diagnosis. He answered all of my questions. He also explained the long term plan to addressmy sons eye care needs. He made me feel so at ease and that as a team, doctor and parent, we could handle any issues. And we did! I am so grateful!
in Rockaway, NJ |
Dr. Clancy was very thorough with his examination and answered my questions patiently. He was candid and very professional in explaining my eye problem and treatment options. I have been a patient for over 4 years and would not go to anyone else, he is a great doctor!
in Township Of Washington NJ |
Dr. Clancy gives me the opportunity to express all my vision concerns. He explains medical details very well.
in Waldwick, NJ |
I have been a patient of Dr Clancy's for 25 years. During that time I had several significant eye problems including one which threatened the sight in one of my eyes. His manner in getting me through that time made me feel like I was his most important patient. When one of my children had a problem, he quickly identified and resolved the it. My entire family goes to him for regular checkups. He is a true professional. The office staff is excellent. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
in Wyckoff, NJ |
The Doctor was good and the staff is very nice. The reason for 2 stars is the billing department which harassed me with 7 or 8 erroneous bills. My insurance information was given but someone didn't correctly file it which led to multiple letters stating I Owed $295.00 when all I owed was a co-pay of $20. Which I would have paid the same day.
