Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Have been going to her for years and each time is a wonderful experience. Not only is she a professional but she is also a wonderful person. I highly recommend her to anyone I know.

    One of the best eye doctors in Bergen County hands down."
    Derek W.
  • "Dr. Salkin is a wonderful optometrist! I can't say enough good things about her. I have been a patient for more than 20 years and always had exceptional care and service for myself, my kids and my husband. Many of my friends and their families are also patients and all have nothing but praise for her expertise and caring treatment. And we are all grateful that she has great hours, nights and Saturday appointments, so I don't have to take off from work.

    But the real test of a good doctor, after the expertise as an optometrist, is being there when you need them and not getting told to come in during office hours a day or so later. Dr Salkin's cell phone is on her answering machine. I had an emergency, called her and she called me back immediately and took care of my eye at her office on that Sunday morning. That's the kind of care I want!"
    Joan F.
  • "I've been going to Dr. Salkin for about 20-years. Hand-down she's a great healthcare professional. Extremely competent Optometrist who always takes the time to be thorough in her care of my eyes from proper fitting contact lenses to screening for overall eye health.
    Dr. Salkin provides her cell number to patients and in my experience has always called back if not immediately within 5-10 min. during off-hours when her office is closed.
    For the past 10 years I've lived about an hour away but still make the time to come back up to N.Jersey to have her check my eyes."
