Dr. Schlussel was great! He was on time and very thorough. He helped me figure out my best options based on what my insurance covered. He does not pressure you into extra services. Very personable and professional. I would highly recommed him.

I was impressed by every member of this office. From Dr. Schlussel to the support team, each person I dealt with was cordial and professional. They were busy and yet kept the patients moving so as not to waste anyone's time.

Very efficient thorough exam. It's always a pleasure to visit the office. Sabina is expert at helping me select the perfect glasses. She takes time to make sure its the right fit and style for me and Dr. Schlussel and staff are great!
Dr. Alan Schlussel is a credit to his field, knowledgeable, and kind. He is always willing to take the time to answer all questions, and explain why certain test/exams are needed or not needed. He keeps his practice current and up to date with the lastest technology to better access and treat the eye. As a patient for more than 20 years, I highly recommend him for total eye care. Also the staff at 33rd Street is wonderful, great to work with.

Great office! I've been going to this office for years and always have a great experience. I usually never wait more than 10 minutes (which is pretty darn good for NYC). Dr Shlussel and his staff are fantastic and friendly. Great frame selection too!

The most thorough exam I've every had! After having been to an opthamologist one month previously (where I left confused and wondering why my right eye was blurry) and told to return in a year, I took matters in my own hands and called Dr. Schlussel for an optometrist exam. Within 5 minutes Dr. Schlussel diagnosed the problem, gave me a referral to get the problem taken care of and then proceeded to give me the most thorough eye exam I've every had! He is also one of the most personable doctors I've known.

I've been coming to Schlussel for over 10 years. I wouldn't trust anyone else. Dr. Schlussel and his staff are the best!
From: Barbara A. ,Manhattan
As usual, my experience at Dr. Schlussel's office was very pleasant. Dr. Schlussel is extremely professional, knowledgeable and thorough and very careful in his examination. His Assistant is very kind and polite as are the staff at reception. Ms. Krasnov, Optician, is very nice and has a large selection of frames and can obtain anything one requires. All in all, an A+

Hope for the Hopeless!

I thought I would never be able to see without blurred vision, much less be able to wear contacts without my eyes turning "devil red," again. I had been going to another eye clinic and developed a problem out of nowhere. There were no effective interventions. The diagnosis and situation weren't logical, I wasn't being heard, and I was basically told I had a condition I would have to live with for the rest of my life. After countless appointments and eight months later I got fed up. I looked online for a doctor that effectively treats "dry eye" and I found Dr. Schlussel. He was very thorough and really listened to me (a dying practice in medicine these days). He told me he knew the problem and had a plan. His diagnosis was spot-on and something I had suspected but had never been heard. He was wonderful at taking the time to review my treatment plan and has given me hope that my vision will improve (already has in just a couple of days) and I'll be able to see clearly AND wear contacts again!

Good bedside manners, professional statements, good explanations and demeanor. I feel safe in his care. And my glasses make me see things I missed before.
