Patient Comments (2)
in Flushing, NY |
New York Eye Care and Dr. Rabin has absurd wait times. I waited over two hours and hadn't gotten any further than filling out the paperwork. Apparently they are cohorts with Queens Optical Center who share the same space. A part of the appointment is to be seen by the optometrist before any additional testing and actually getting to see the doctor himself. However, again, over two hours and I hadn't been seen by anyone. I was then told that it would be another 2 - 3hrs to actually see Dr. Rabin

Have been waiting for over 4 hours at the office. My appt was for 10:30 am, it is 2:30pm and I still haven't seen.
