Union Square Eye Care (Manhattan) location: Went to Dr. Weitzner for a reoccurrence of uveitis, which is very uncomfortable. The wait was not too long, and I found the doctor to be very kind and straightforward. I like that he added "this is nothing to be alarmed about" to his diagnosis, and that he took my questions about meds seriously. Sent Rx right away and follow up scheduling was a snap. Disclaimer: I work at Vitals, but have no personal or professional connection to this physician.
