About Lauren E. Lusardi

Philosophy of care

I am committed to providing excellent care to you and your family. This includes advising you fully and honestly about all aspects of your vision and general health.

Why I entered medicine

I became interested in health care at a very young age. It was a combination of getting my first pair of glasses in elementary school and being obsessed with the late-90s TV show "Trauma: Life in the ER." While emergency medicine was not my final calling, my passion for ocular health and vision never faltered. We as optometrists can increase our patient’s quality of life through both corrective lenses and the ability to diagnose and manage other ocular conditions that may impact their overall health.

Community involvement

My volunteer work includes multiple medical missions to Central and South America, as well as to rural areas in the southern United States. I work with Girl Scouts on the Vision Awareness badge. I am a fellow of the American Academy of Optometry and a member of the New Jersey Society of Optometric Physicians and the American Optometric Association.

Personal interests

I am a lover of thriller and murder mystery fiction. Also this summer I had daylight saving time to thank for helping me reach my goal of running 1000 km (about 620 miles). My long-term goal is to qualify for the Boston Marathon. After I am done cheering on my New York Giants, you can also find me trying my hand at the latest trendy craft project.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
