I travel from Nazareth, PA to see Dr. Lalin. Used to go to his Phillipsburg office. When he closed that office I tried 2 retina doctors closer to home. Not being satisfied with them. I decided it was worth the trip to Hackettstown.

StarStarStarStarStar Listens to patient's concerns —    (Patient since 2019)

Previously, I have been to many opthalmologists and have not been pleased because I did not feel that they cared or listened to my concerns. Dr. Lalin took the time to thoroughly explain things and discuss options with me. His staff was also very courteous and competent. I plan to schedule cataract surgery with Dr. Lalin.

I had careract surgery almost a year ago and I am still having trouble reading using my left eye. I saw several doctors in your practice who said it was my glasses. After changing my glasses three times I still have the same problem.i saw Dr.lallin 2 weeks ago who suggested lazer surgery and eye exercise. He said that I would be called to schedule this but was never called. I can't understand why I had to change glasses at my expense 3 times only to be td that the glasses we're not the problem. Each time I came back with a problem I was charged another co pay. This was all from the original surgery. So 60 dollars in co payments and three new pairs of glasses and sunglasses. I still cannot read from my left eye. I have had several friends who have had the surgery elsewhere and have not had a bit of aggression.Either someone is screwing up Because I saw better and was less frustrated before the surgery. Dr. mall in came highly recommended. I did not know all the follow ups would not be done by him. I don't think I would recommend your service to anyone because I am not happy.

StarStarStarStarNo Star Great place and staff, but LONG wait —    (Patient since 2019)

I was an emergency visit and the staff worked with me to get into the office between appointments. I was very pleased with their ability to make this work for a new patient in quite a bit of pain. Once I was in the chair my appointment was over within 5 minutes and I was out the door with a prescription and treatment instructions. My only complaint (and reason for anything less than a 10) is that, while I was slotted in for an 11:45AM appointment, and arrived more than 15min early, I was not seen until 1:45PM. I understand it was a last minute scheduling, but it was a significantly longer wait than I expected.

StarStarStarNo StarNo Star My visit at The Retina & Eye Specialists of NJ ... —    (Patient since 2019)

My visit at The Retina & Eye Specialists of NJ was all in all a positive one. The staff was very helpful and attentive. Dr. Lapin was very thorough and listened well. The one thing they definitely need to do is give their office a serious make-over. As a new patient I was surprised to hear they had been there for years as the place looked like it was just moved into after the previous owners had stripped the place. It did not look clean and there was old equipment and staff belongings strewn about. The paint on the walls was peeling and didn't look like anyone had painted it in about 40 years. It just gave me a very unsettling feeling, like the owners didn't care.

StarStarStarStarStar Overviiew of Initail Consultation ... —    (Patient since 2019)

A great deal of time was spent going from one technologist to the next. I was in the office a total of 2 and 15 minutes, with perhaps 15 minutes spent with Dr. Lalin, who spent about 15 minutes with me. This does not diminish my faith in his capabilities nor my appreciation of his manner of communication, but in retrospect I wish he had shown me the pictures which were up on the computer in the room in which we met, yet he did not bring them into his explanation of the condition for which I consulted with him. I left the office uncertain as to whether I have AMD in one or both eyes, more or less it is in both, which I will clear up at my next visit. For me a review of the visuals would have been appreciated. Other than that I have confidence in him based on his treatment of a family member which was initiated nine years ago and am positive regarding his treatment for my newly determined condition.

Staff is courteous, friendly and professional. They make sure you understand each step of the procedure and that you are comfortable throughout. I would highly recommend the Retina & Eye Specialists of NJ.


StarStarStarStarNo Star Great doctor —    (Patient since 2018)

Doctor brilliantly performed a retina examination, was polite, courteous and understanding. However, I wish the doctor had made some recommendations regarding how to stop the symptom I described to him from occurring. I also wish he would have explained to me the reason for this occurring in a little more detail. Finally, the medical assistant was a girl with dark hair and wore glasses. She was very rude and impatient, kept calling me "ma'am" instead of my name. She did not take time to take a proper picture of my right eye and did not take a picture of my left eye at all. I was a little freaked out by the flashes coming in at me when a picture of my right eye was being taken. Instead of being patient and taking time to take pictures of both of my eyes, she got angry at me and said how she "will not be doing this". Since I will probably have to pay for this part of the initial examination anyway, I think it is unacceptable that she could be that unprofessional! Kept asking questions like a robot, was very indifferent and unresponsive during the latter part of the initial examination. She should definitely be replaced!!!!!!!! Office was very cold and for some reason there was a cold air blowing on a very cold winter day.

Appointment was 3 hours total, but not all waiting as many tests were done. Just allow lots of time.


StarStarNo StarNo StarNo Star Upsetting  —    (Patient since 2019)

I arrived at the office at 1:40 with my husband and twin 5 month old babies for an apt at 2:00. I filled out the paper work just prior to 2:00. The front desk associate told me she had completed entering my paperwork and fully checked me in by 2:15 but had “lost” my referral. I was not seen until 3:30. I waited and watched MANY patients who checked in after me go through the process and leave. My husband complained to the front desk at 3:00 and he was told I’d be next. We weren’t. I had to complain a second time at around 3:15, “can we please be seen, my family has been here for over an hr!” 15 mins later I was seen for the first time to do the exam. I did not see a doctor until 3:45 and my family and I left the office a little after 4:00. To be in the office for almost 3 hrs is absolutely absurd. What’s upsetting is not one of the front desk associates showed any sense of urgency to my family sitting there for hours with infants. I would be ok if it was busy and many people were there before us. But this wasn’t the case, MANY new patients came in did the eye exam, saw a doctor and left during our time there. I am extremely frustrated and question how something like this happens.


StarNo StarNo StarNo StarNo Star Old dirty office and equipment  —    (Patient since 2019)

The website is nice but gives a false impression of the practice. The office and the equipment are VERY old. I honestly wanted to leave after being there for 10 mins. They charge a $60 dollars fee for a “test” that no other ophthalmologist has charged me in the past for. So, $60 + $20 dollars co pay = $80 for the first visit. The Dr was nice, can’t say the same about the staff, they actually look like they do not want to be there. Small selection of glasses too at the Hackettstown office. Anyways, I’m not going back, I will go back to my old home town Dr about an hour away. Very disappointed...
