Unprofessional and unpleasant doctor. Staff doesn't know what they're doing. Took over 1 hour to be taken back - 2.5 hours from start to finish!! The three waiting room chairs are falling apart. Equipment and rooms are Dirty!! Terrible!!! Don't go here!!!

Dr is thorough in her examinations, history taking, explanations & discussion with patients in their eye issues or disease & treatment options. I have referred many friends & family members to her. Every one of these (that I know of) have been very pleased with her ophthalmology care. She has 2 office locations: Winchester & Woodstock.

A friend recommended Dr. Hynes and I am so glad. Compared to my previous opthomologist Dr. Hynes and her staff are a dream. Both she and her assistant took their time and did thorough examinations. My questions were answered completely. Concerns I expressed were addressed in a satisfactory manner. The wait time was reasonable and I did not feel at all rushed during my appointment. Excellent!
Woodstock, VA |
I found Dr. Hynes to be caring and highly professional. I am convinced of her competence and I especially appreciated her advice to limit surgical treatment to necessary procedure. Her staff is also kind, caring and effective.
in Maurertown |
Ask to have VA DMV sun-shading medical authorization form signed by Dr. Hynes iin order to reduce bright sun light during the day and bright lights at night time to improve my driving since my eyes are sensitive to bright lights.The assistant that was going to check my eyes stated she had never seen or heard of this form and immediately took a negative attitude towards my request and stated that ever one coming in would want a form signed. She stated I would have to go see a doctor to sign.
