How was your experience with the doctor?They don't do the entire eye exam in one sitting, which they don't warn you about and is very annoying. Also, they were not clear on pricing. They did not explain until after the fact the cost difference between contact lens and eye glass exams. Ended up paying when I wasn't expecting to, then on top of that had to make a follow-up appointment for the second part of the eye exam. Don't really recommend.

How was your experience with the doctor?My visit with Dr Aliya was fantastic! Her staff was knowledgeable and friendly and I was greeted immediately with a courteous smile as soon as I walked in the door. I received quality care, was in and out quickly, and the service was excellent. She has a great selection of eyewear and prices were good. Making an appointment was easy using her online service, and you can even upload all your health information so that when you walk in you simply sign your name. I've never had so much fun at a doctors appointment in my life! Would highly recommend. Linda W.

How was your experience with the doctor?Saw me last minute for an eye emergency. Saw me as soon as I arrived, was very informative on my condition. Prescribed me an awesome eye drop that literally took the pain away immediately and helped me heal very fast. I was back to wearing my contacts within the week. Her staff is also very kind, friendly and helpful.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Hot was a pleasure; she was professional in a sense that she explained everything to me during our session, but not professional to the point where it felt impersonal and mechanical. She was very friendly and answered questions very excitedly and without judgement. The staff were exceptional as well. Everyone was customer service oriented and I really enjoyed that.

How was your experience with the doctor?I would highly recommend Dr. Hoyt to my friends and will definitely see her again. She took the time to answer my questions and gave me the MOST thorough eye exam that I have ever had! I switched to her based on the positive reviews she had online and because of the "average" service that my previous eye doctor had provided. Dr. Hot was the only doctor to 1) identify that I had damage to my Optic Nerve from a previous sinus surgery; 2) identify that my current reading glasses were not strong enough; 4) that I had problems seeing items from a distance and 5) that I should wear glasses all the time to avoid straining my eyes from putting my reading glasses on and off. Her staff was friendly and she has a very nice office. Also, the arrangement of eye frames by styles/ prices helped make choosing a sturdy/ affordable frame much easier. (Her office address is listed on the site as 203 E 121st Street but the entrance is actually located on 3rd Avenue. Walk to to the corner of 3rd Avenue and 121st to locate the entrance. That way you will not wander around on 12st Street wondering how to get in....like I did. lol)

How was your experience with the doctor?She was knowledgeable about how my age and working conditions were affecting my eyesight and prescribed reading glasses but made it clear that I did not absolutely NEED them. She was very friendly and relaxed. Of course the ladies up front at the eyeglass case tried to sell me the more expensive frames, but I settled on cheap ones (I only use them a few times a month) and got them for free on my plan.

How was your experience with the doctor?I ended up not meeting with her because I only needed to buy emergency contacts but she came out to help me with my purchase and even cleaned my smudged glasses for me.
