Dr. Brody-Sendroff is amazing! She was so easy to talk to and explained why my prescription was what it is. She explained I have astigmatism- which makes so much sense! The glasses they have are diverse and not found in your chain stores... Definitely come visit!
I’m extremely pleased with my experience at Bergen optometry. I’m a hard critic of emergency care places and the people employed by them. However Dr. Brody is someone you would refer to as a superhuman. She is super knowledgeable, friendly and made me feel at ease. I entered the facility in pain and left laughing. I would recommend this facility and doctor to anyone! You are in Great hands!
Hands down the best and most thorough eye exam I’ve ever had! Now that I’m getting a bit older and I’m starting to have some issues. I’m reminded how important it is to stay on top of my eye health. Dr. Brody spent so much time explaining things to me and I feel so much better educated. Her team is professional and polite and I seriously can’t recommend them enough.

I have been going to Bergen Optometry for many years. The staff and doctors are great! During my previous visit my teenage son decided to give contacts a try. The staff was so patient with him and took their time (over an hour) to teach him how to use and care for his contacts. He was so happy!
I went there yesterday as my first time in a long time seeing an eye doctor in like 10 years, and I immediately felt welcomed. Each and every single one of the staff members were so friendly, it felt like I was in a utopia. I’m not usually one to write reviews however, this place deserved it And I highly recommend this location to anyone. Thank you again!
Excellent customer service overall. Staff shows they truly care about your health and concerns and goes above and beyond to help. Exam did not feel rushed like in other places. They take their time to answer questions and speak to you about your results.
I see Dr Brody as my eye doctor, a lovely caring person she is very patient and a good listener to the eye problems I am experiencing. The staff is very helpful and accommodating, they make you feel as if you are the most important patient in the office. The wait time is minimal and I would recommend this practice.
The staff was very friendly & professional. They accepted our insurance and didn’t pressure us into over spending. The office was clean and the machines used for testing were state of the art. I would highly recommend them over the bait and switch and smooth talking salespeople in the mall franchises.
Always extraordinary customer service! Every effort is made to be sure all is exemplary. Many thanks to the opticians (and the owners) for a reliable and very valuable service. Eyes are important!
Visiting Bergen Optometry for the first time yesterday was one of the best doctor visits I have ever experienced.
