How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Conenna was amazing. She took her time and answered all my questions. She also gave me some sample contacts to try for one of my eyes to make sure I was comfortable before I place an order, which I really appreciated. The wait time though could be managed better. My appointment itself started about 20 minutes late and I had to wait another 10-15 minutes for Dr. Conenna after being seen by someone else for some prelim tests. Not horrible but definitely add some buffer time to your schedule.

How was your experience with the doctor?My experience at Dr. Conenna's office was amazing. The woman who checked me in was so kind. I had a very complex insurance situation that took more than half an hour to sort out. She was so patient and spoke to the insurance company on my behalf and eventually got it all sorted out. The office manager was a little brusque, as she tried to hurry us along, so that I could be seen, but I understand completely that sh needed to keep to the schedule. When I told her that I really preferred to sort out the insurance business in advance due to bad past experiences, she understood and backed off. Dr. Conenna herself was truly fantastic. She gave me the most thorough exam I've received to date, and took the time to explain everything along the way. She also helped me understand that the type of contacts I'm used to wearing were causing slightly blurry vision and could have been the source of my headaches. She worked with me to try several new types and the ones we settled on are infinitely more comfortable. I'm very pleased with the overall experience!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Conenna was wonderful. I discovered when I arrived that the office did not accept a version of my insurance to cover contact lense/eye glass fitting without a fee, but I stayed for a check-up anyway. The doctor was extremely helpful and kind, answering all questions with patience and care. Loved her!

How was your experience with the doctor?There was a bit of a delay in checking in, although that might have been because I was a new patient. Once we started, Vanessa was very professional and friendly. She did a careful job and actually determined that there was a different contact curvature that would be more comfortable and better for my eyes.

How was your experience with the doctor?I just moved to NYC and was due for an eye appointment. I heard about zoc doc 5 days ago and made a random appointment with Dr. Conenna. All i can say is WOW. I had an amazing experience. She is a true professional. The whole staff was so kind and helpful! I didn't think I had eye coverage (I did) and they saved a couple hundred dollars. I truly recommend her anyone looking for quality eye care!

How was your experience with the doctor?Very knowledgable and gets right down to business. Some people would prefer a more chit-chatty doctor, but as long as she knows her stuff, I'm fine without having to sit and make small talk about my hobbies. I'd been having eye irritation for a long time (dryness, redness, etc.), and switching contact brands/prescriptions/lenses didn't help. She noticed a small infection that I'd apparently had for a while, but no other doctors had noticed. She helped me take care of it and my eyes felt a TON better. I definitely trust her with my vision.
