How was your experience with the doctor?I had my glasses done twice. Still not good. Stigmatism was off and ended up have the whole thing redone at another optometrist and now it is great. Additionally, I waited more than a month to have my first wrong sets of glasses returned.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Paul is super professional, kind and respectful. I have recommended everyone I know to see him and they all love him. They only problem is that his front desk staff are NOT friendly, NOT patient, looking like someone can’t wait to get out the job. It is a pity for Dr. Paul having staff like that.

How was your experience with the doctor?This is my third year visiting Dr. Kantrowich and I cannot think about going with no other eye doctor ever, he's so kind and his bed manners are impeccable. He always finds a way to make me feel comfortable and he explains everything that's going on with my eyes in a very simple way for me to understand. I started bringing my teenage daughter to see him too, with the same results. I'm soooo happy I found him thru ZocDoc!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Kantrowich was very nice and very patient. He listens to what you have to say. He checked my vision and suggested new glasses (which I was overdue for.) I'll give them a chance and see how it works out. His office location is right across the street from my office, so it was very convenient. I literally have nothing to complain about. I just have to take his advice and see how my eye feels in a few weeks. I'm happy that I found a good doctor that I like.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Kantrowich has been my eye doctor for many years. He is kind and caring. He has recently guided me through cataract surgery and the post-op adjustment to new eyeglasses. He explains everything thoroughly in terms I can understand and is committed to getting my vision to the best level it can be. He's gone the extra mile in communicating with other eye care professionals throughout the cataract surgery and post-op process. I recommend him highly.

How was your experience with the doctor?I have been going to Dr. Kantrowich for two years and he is the best optometrist I have ever had.  He is thoughtful, listens, and is more transparent than almost any doctor I have worked with.  While the vagaries of vision insurance will vary from person to person, my experience is that he is very affordable for both exams and ordering contacts.  Unreservedly recommend.

How was your experience with the doctor?I had never had an eye exam in my life before I saw Dr. Kantrowich. What I appreciated most about the visit was how well he explained to me what all the procedures were for. He was easygoing but professional. His staff were the same. For me, the glasses in the shop were quite expensive but the optician worked with me to find a pair that was affordable.

The office is wonderful, saw me right on time, and the staff was incredibly helpful....this is the second time I've purchased frames from the office, and the second time I've had the wonderful ladies in the front help me choose when I had a hard time myself, which was so kind of them as they are busy doing their own work as well. The reception ladies are friendly, kind, and helpful. As is the optician who helped with my lenses and frames. Highly recommend!
