What Our Patients Are Saying...
I was 20 minutes late due to heavy traffic and they were super accommodating! Everything about the appointment was great. Dr. Schlussel is very knowledgeable and friendly.
Dr. Schlussel was very thorough and professional. I’m very happy with the quality of care I received.
Dr. Schlussel is meticulous and thorough. He spent at least 30 minutes with me and was incredibly helpful and forthright. It has taken me awhile to find an optometrist that I like in the city and I will definitely be returning to Dr. Schlussel in the future.
Dr. Schlussel was very patient and helpful and explained everything thoroughly. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional optometrist.
Friendly staff, short wait, very accommodating to my crying baby. Overall great experience!
Great service from everyone. First time with contacts and they’re very patient, changed one out for me and were thorough with making sure I had the right prescription etc. Great staff!
No wait time (I checked in online in advance.) Very thorough and informative exam. Both the doctor and the tech took the time to explain things to me. Very efficient but also a great “bedside manner” and I never felt rushed. I also bought new reading glasses there (I broke mine). I showed them what I wanted to replace and they pulled the handful of glasses that most looked like what I wanted and explained my benefits and what my costs would be. Overall, a great experience start to finish. I’ve found my new eye doctor!!!
He was detailed and thorough. I didn’t feel rushed and appreciated that he answered all of my questions.
Dr. Schlussel is great, very knowledgeable, explains everything, and thorough in his exam. The office is clean and the staff is friendly. Definitely recommend!
This was a great experience, not only was the wait very short (<10 minutes total waiting time for the technician and Dr. Schlussel), but the entire process was so smooth. Everyone was very knowledgeable and helpful. I’ve never walked away from an eye exam understanding what I was paying for and what my health plan was paying for. They really made sure to understand my benefits, which I greatly appreciated. In addition, Dr. Schlussel is also an excellent doctor with great bedside manner, he was very friendly and efficient. He wanted me to come back for some additional testing and explained why in detail, and even reviewed my benefits to make sure it was covered or would be a decent cost. I definitely plan on continuing to see Dr. Schlussel!
Dr. Schlussel is the consummate professional, extremely knowledgeable and patient centered. He is easy to talk to and easy to understand. He has a superb and efficient office staff. Receptionist and billing personnel were professional and extremely well organized. The optometry technician was professional and informative and administered tests in a calm, patient manner. The dispensing optician was professional, informative and helped identify the appropriate glasses for my prescription. Bottom line, a superb Optometrist with outstanding staff.
Dr. Schlussel was excellent and validated an issue that I was having that many docs in the past have neglected. I highly recommend him since he took the time to really investigate with various tests and exercises and listen to me when I explained what was going on with my vision. I will definitely going be back.
The whole office staff were friendly and happy to help. Dr. Schlussel is incredibly friendly, professional, knowledgeable and thorough. I never felt rushed and he explained everything he was testing and looking for. I would highly recommend this practice.
One word: WOW. Dr. Schlussel provided the most extensive eye exam I have ever had (and I’ve been wearing glasses since the 6th grade). He was patient, kind and generous with his time. He worked with me to find the right contact lens prescription as well as review other aspects of my eye health. Highly recommend!!!
I have been going to Dr. Schlussel for over 8 years and the Dr. and his staff always deliver with a prompt & professional service.
Dr. Schlussel is very knowledgeable, is very professional and has a great personality. I recommend him without any reservations.
Dr. Schlussel spends time listening, reviewing, testing, interacting, and adjusts accordingly. Very professional, answers every question and explains why at every point. Same goes for his staff. BTW, I do not mind waiting, this isn’t a line at the DMV. Proper, thorough care requires time.
Very nice doctor, answered all my questions, explained everything to me in detail. Highly recommended. And new bigger office is coming soon…………..
Dr. Schlussel is thorough and clear with his explanations about treatment. His staff are courteous and the office is well maintained. I would definitely recommend him for eye care.
