I highly recommend Dr. Forster. I saw him today for my recurrent conjunctivitis. He was knowledgeable and thorough.
in Falls Church, VA |
Dr Forster has served my opthamologic care for over four years. I have found him to be thorough and well-versed in conditions, procedures, and options for care. I can't imagine ever trusting my eye care to any other provider going forward.

Dr. Forster has been my ophthalmologist for many years, and I have always found him to be very friendly, competent, caring, and reassuring. His office staff is very efficient as well.
