.

I had perhaps the worst eye exam, contact lens fitting, and eyeglass prescription experience that I have ever had at Optometrist Ilene Siringo (FYI, I have maybe had roughly 15-20 eye exam visits in my lifetime).

The optometrist Ilene Siringo. O.D. is one of the most rude and condescending healthcare professionals I have every encountered in any specialty.

The actual eye exam itself was mediocre at best. I had to return three times to finally get an accurate contact lens prescription.

With regard to eyeglasses, Optometrist Ilene Siringo gave an incorrect prescription that was at least 0.5D off from the final prescription and completely misdiagnosed the astigmatic correction. I had spectacles fitted with her wrong prescription (cost of $130) - Siringo initially refused to 1) ackowledge that a mistake had been made and 2) try to help correct the situation.

After several visits (and much wasted time), Siringo finally acquiesced that a mistake had been made and arranged for the Lenscrafters store connected to her optometry shop to refit the eyeglasses with the correct prescription. Needless to say it was a huge hassle that was finally fixed by the opticians at the Lenscrafters (located at 49th St and Third Ave in Manhattan). As a final aside, it was an expensive eye exam, at close to $200 for both eyeglass and contact lense prescription.

I would not recommend Optometrist Ilene Siringo to anyone I know.

very attentive staff, and friendly to everyone that came into waiting area. Doctor was professional, asked open-ended questions to address my needs for a particular type of contact lens, and provided one of the most thorough exams I've ever had as an eye patient. The contact lens I ordered at their office arrived there for my pick-up the very next day.
