I can't say enough about Dr. Schaefman and his staff at Atlantic Medical. I called up asking to come in for a last minute emergency visit and they said to come right down. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, I felt right at home. Dr. Scharfman was very attentive and thorough, he took care of me immediately and made sure that I understood everything, even making sure that my prescriptions were available immediately. If you're looking for excellent eye care, look no further.

Went to the doctor with a referral for one procedure. Office staff asked general questions about my eyes which were truthfully answered. So before I knew what was going on, doctor did eye exam in addition to referred procedure without prior informing me. I did not ask for eye exam since I can get it for free at different doctor with another insurance I have. Doctor also performed procedures as part of the eye exam that are considered experimental and that not covered by insurance.

I found Dr Sharfman to be very thorough in testing and treating my glaucoma.
