Horseheads, NY |
Front office staff is very unprofessional and non accommodating, can't get an appointment for several months, when you do schedule an appointment be prepared to wait in the waiting room for a good 45 minutes to an hour after your scheduled time, doctor is okay but rushes you out of the room and does not explain diagnosis very well. I wouldn't recommend unless you have a lot of time to waste in your day.

I called for an eye exam and they said they were booking out a couple months. I scheduled the next available appointment and was told I could call back to see if there had been any cancellations, so I could be seen sooner. I called about a week or so later and they were able to get me in that Tuesday due to a cancellation. The entire staff was very pleasant and professional.

Best doctors in town!!! My whole family goes to Dr. Schwartz's office! The office is wonderful about taking care of my contact lens needs and it's nice that they have my contacts in stock at all times. The staff is wonderful. It's always nice to hear them laughing with the other patients and they are very welcoming.
If you are articulate and patient, he is more likely to answer your questions. Otherwise, he is rather impatient and does not take the time to explain what is happening. Especially with children or disabled children. The office experience has the feel of a production line and we are the products.
