I waiting 1:30 h and I didn't the consult. Two patients were waiting for 3 hours! This overbooking is unacceptable for a professional. I do not recommend this doctor... this delay is unprofessional.

Stay as far away from Dr. Cykiert as possible. The rudeness of his staff and the two hour waiting time are true but the least of it. Dr. Cykiert is not only personally unpleasant but seriously unprofessional. He purports to be in many insurance networks but has no one on his staff to deal with insurance companies or issues -- and he and his staff are completely unwilling to do anything but the most perfunctory of paperwork to facilitate prescriptions or eligibility.

The best. Had an ongoing problem for year and bounced around from Dr. to Dr. Could have lost vision in my eye if I hadn't gone to see him when i did. Also discovered I had another medical issue that no one caught. So glad he was recommended to me.

He is a very good eye doctor, but his office is poorly run. I called to make sure he was not running behind; was assured he was on time only to show up to learn he was running approximately 1.5 hours behind. My time is valuable also.

I've seen Dr Cykiert for years and he's a very good doctor. The problem has always been ridiculously long wait times with no effort to alert patients that he's running behind. Impossible to get early morning appointments unless you make them a year in advance. My time is valuable too, although most MDs don't seem to understand or respect that.

Have been seeing him for years. Extremely thorough
