Review of Dr. Buttross


I have gone to Dr. Buttross approximately 5 times, for contact lens and glasses prescriptions and once for a minor eye irritation. Her staff does all the work; she comes in and checks their work and chats a bit. She may be a good doctor for more serious issues, but I would not go to her for regular eye care. The wait time in her office is at least 45-60 minutes. Even when you call her office, you have to wait for calls in front of you. I don't think she's worth it.

Review of Dr. Gavaris

-Chevy Chase, MD |

Had a first appointment with Dr. Gavaris for my daughter (16) who needed to have a few things removed from her eyelids. She was very patient, explained everything -- it was a difficult procedure for my daughter -- involving shots of anesthesia in her eyelids....-- but it all went well because of Dr. Gavaris' skill and kind manner.

Review of Dr. Ashburn Jr

-Arlington, VA |

Personally like Dr. Ashburn, but his staff leaves much to be desired. Recently had a mini requirement for an eye drop prescription. The staff at every level were impossible to deal with. I ended up going to a CVS mini-clinic where they saw the problem and wrote the prescription within minutes of the exam. I was very disappointed in the staffs attitude. One of the idiots at the desk asked if I had the prescription name. I said No - that's why I am here to have one filled.I won't be back.

Review of Dr. Gavaris

-Stafford, VA |

I went in for a consultation to have a ptosis repair with Dr. Gavaris and I couldn't be any more happier with the results. I looked up many doctors in the Washington DC area but once I had my consultation with him I knew he was the doctor I would trust to perform my procedure. He was ready to answer any questions, he was caring, crafty, and very professional in every step of the way. He performed the Gavaris ptosis procedure which is an internal incision for mild ptosis with no external scaring

Review of Dr. Buttross

- in Blue Ridge Summit, PA |

From scheduling my appt. to the last follow-up, Dr. Buttross and her Staff are first rate. Dr. Buttross treats you like you are a part of HER family. She truly cares about how you feel and why. There is nothing she won't do to go above and beyond the average Ophthalmologist. I gladly place the care of my eye sight in her hands and do recommend her to anyone that wants the best. She is worth traveling out of state just to see her.

Review of Dr. Ashburn Jr

- in Potomac, MD |

Had very (bad) expensive cataract surgery with Dr. Ashbury, Jr. and was not happy with the results. Although I told him at the beginning of our association that I had Lazy Eye all of my life which was not corrected, he never mentioned that Cataract Surgery, would not correct it and that my vision would never be that good. It wasn't until I had the surgery in both eyes and had no improvement in the first eye, that he finally mentioned that I would never have good vision in the Lazy Eye
