How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Sangani was great and provided helpful recommendations for keeping my eyes healthy! The store staff was also very accommodating in helping me pick out new frames while I was plagued with indecision. It took a village, and they rose to the occasion. I'm glad I found a new regular optometrist and store!

How was your experience with the doctor?The eye test was thorough, but unfortunately the glasses were way too expenses--even with copay--so I only bought one pair, and within weeks they were scratched. Would recommend an eye test here, would not recommend buying glasses there.

How was your experience with the doctor?She was kind but I did not feel totally helped. I had to ask what she found/saw for her to tell me. It was strange to have to ask again when I had expressed my concerns and wanted to hear her feedback... as that’s why I was there. Maybe I went to the wrong type of eye doctor though. It would have been better for me to go to an ophthalmologist.

How was your experience with the doctor?I've had some terrible luck with eye doctors in NYC, but Dr Sangani is perfect! She gave me new glasses and contacts prescriptions and everything is good so far. There's plenty of people working at Eye and Health so the wait time was really short, I think they were disappointed I didnt buy glasses from there but the same day emailed me my script so I can get them at the retailer I want. Would definitely recommend! Happy to have finally found an eye doctor I like

Bedside manner: Unsatisfactory

How was your experience with the doctor?Long wait for seemingly no reason, as no one else was waiting or in with the doctor. The receptionists were extremely nice, but the doctor was not. She scolded me for wearing the wrong prescription in one eye (I only did this for a short period because I ran out of contacts, hence my appointment), and was very negative towards after learning this information, as I was apparently making the exam harder for her by wearing the wrong prescription. She continuously reminding me how to properly wear my contacts (I've been wearing them for 15 years). I want to give her the benefit of the doubt, maybe it was a bad day, but I am weary to return!
