How was your experience with the doctor?I love Dr. Amin! She's funny, has a lot of personality, and is really personable. She was thorough in the exam and explained everything in layman's terms so I didn't have a lot of questions at the end. The only thing I didn't like was the layout of the office. It's super tiny with a bunch of people crammed into a small space. Definitely would recommend filling out the paperwork through Zocdoc because they definitely use it in the office!

Bedside manner: Satisfactory

How was your experience with the doctor?She was kind, didn’t know what type of appointment I was in for. This could be attributed to her arriving in the office after me (no time to set up) the staff out front was what I would describe as New York helpful aka bare minimum. I believe they also questioned me/accused me of attempting to leave with sunglasses as I was putting my own saying “hey did you buy those here?” She recovered by saying “oh I just thought you needed a case...”

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Seema was quick and efficient and answered all my questions! Only concern is that upon settling payment, I still have not received my prescription for my glasses and contact lenses as well as receipt, despite being told I would receive same day as my appointment. Besides that, Dr Seema was amazing and made me very comfortable!

How was your experience with the doctor?Very bad. Administration is rude. The doctor didn’t really do a good job. After checking eyes and using some eye drops on me simply sent away. Was half blind on my way home, pupils irritated and recovered after several hours only. No sunglasses or anything else was offered to sooth the feeling. Sun light was killing my eyes all the way back home. Terrible. Never again.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Seema Amin is very professional and explains in detail everything that she’s doing and results of her exam. I came in to see her just for a general eye consultation, but got more info in return because of seeing her. Did not know the severity of my eye condition if I had not seen her. My eye and myself are very grateful for her. The staff as well are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend coming to this location.
