How was your experience with the doctor?I actually ended up seeing Dr Sun instead of Dr Tisch and it was a great visit. Got in relatively quickly, the exams were quick but thorough, and both the front desk staff and doctors were very very nice.

How was your experience with the doctor?It was ok but he seemed a little upset with me when I came on a holiday I booked him on line and when I arrived and he was out I didn’t see the doctor that was on that day his attitude changed I was shocked having a personal choice is the patient right. And I was taking care of a sick father who just passed I neglected my self because I wasn’t taken care of my self. Putting my dad first for several years now I’m starting to take care of myself Thanks

How was your experience with the doctor?Very friendly doctor. Wait time was a bit long considering I was the only patient there to see him (about 20 min) but once I met him he was very well informed and had great bedside manner. Would recommend. His office is in a eyeglass shop.

How was your experience with the doctor?I was there for a routine eye exam and contact prescription. While the office is very small, that shouldn’t be a deterrent. The front desk staff was lovely and incredibly kind and Dr. Tisch was great! He was very friendly and did a great job explaining my eye health to me and what the various costs of the different contact lens options were.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Tisch was great. Very knowledgeable, nice, to the point and seemed to really have my best interest at heart when recommending contact brands/glasses etc. The office is not fancy, but for a quick eye check up, it is great. The staff was helpful and very transparent about any co-pays/contact lens charges. I'll definitely go back for my next check up!

How was your experience with the doctor?I really appreciate honesty from any professional, something that Dr. Tisch exemplified. The team he works with are friendly and answer questions without any hint of frustration. Though I was there for a check up and only would be getting my lens changed, they were not pushy on buying new frames. Overall, great experience.
