I would recommend Dr. Angrist all my family and friends. He is very professional and courteous. I had a problem with one eye and Dr. Angrist saw me right away even though I was a new patient. There are few doctors today, as professional and caring as Dr. Angrist. Thank you!

I did not have insurance and had a real scare - I realized that my close-up vision was extremely blurry, and my eyes had been irritated and slightly red for a couple months. Dr. Angrists office assured me that he would see me regardless of insurance and they fit me in for the next day. The care I received was incredible. I have trouble trusting doctors but Dr. Angrist proved that he cared about his patients and was extremely competent. He totally saved my eyesight and charged me almost nothing.

Dr. Angrist is a highly engaged health care professional. This doctor has truly come into his own which has been remarkable to witness. A patient for many many years, then and now, Dr. Angrist has always been keen to put the care eyes and vision first. On any occaisionion i have needed this doctor he has made himself available. There are few doctors that are this absorbed in the field. I recommend him often and with confidence.
Wouldnt recomend him to anyone , very unprofessional,Docter made rude comments to his staff about my child being in the lobby *1y/o .When i was leaving and following up with scheduling an appointment they said 3pm was avail. And he told the lady to switch it to 5:30 without even asking me. So when i came in the following week he was an hour late And everyone who was there before me was gone i checked out at 7 when i suppose theyre closed already. Never apologized ..never will i go to him again.
