I have been going to Dr. Scharfman for some times now. Recently,due to my on going eye problem I have to see him monthy. I have been treated with outmost respect and courtesy each and every time. Dr. Schafman's staff are friendly and knowlegeable and fast. Dr. Scharman is a friendly, knowledgeable, and experienced ophtolmologist. He shares his findings and the treatment options with you. He answers to all of your questions.I would recommend him to everyone who is looking for an eye doctor.

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.
