Patient Comments (5)
Washington, DC |
Dr. Braun is great and very knowledgeable, but the office is so poorly run, it's not unusual to wait an hour or longer to see her. It's hard as a working mom to carve out two hours for what amounts to 15 minutes with the doctor.

Granted you do have to wait sometimes up to an hour to see Dr. Braun. However, it is worth the wait! I trust my eyes with Dr. Braun. She is caring, very experienced and quite the professional. Please tell me everyone - where do you NOT wait in the DC area?
in Woodbridge, VA |
I had a very good experience with Dr. Braun; however, the office staff was very rude and unprofessional. I witnessed them berate and harass patients for missed appointment fees as well as behave in a very unfriendly manner at simple requests that fell into the realm of their job duties. I would highly recommend Dr. Braun and her physician assistant staff; however, her office staff does not make patients feel comfortable or welcomed.

Highly proficient in Ophthalmology with a great personality, Dr. Braun recently performed cataract surgery on my eye and now I can see what I have been missing with my sight. I highly recommend Dr. Braun.
in Alexandria, VA |
Dr. braun is personable and friendly. However, she has a complete lack of regard for her patients time. I've seen her twice in the past 3 months and on both visits I was left waiting well over an hour past my appointment time. If you have plenty of time, with no where to be, she is a fine choice. If not, I'd suggest you see someone else.
