Reston, VA |
One of the best eye doctors in the D.C. area!
in Reston |
I found Dr. Milani to be very pleasant and helpful. She listened to my concerns and gave me a referral and a new presription. It is a small kind of bare bones office but her Admin was very friendly and easy to work with. I would recommend her to my friends.
in Herndon VA |
She is great, been going there for a while now, she is friendly and professional and so is the receptionist.

I have gone to see Dr. Milani for several years because her office is convenient to my home. I have endured her rudeness and lack of interest in me as a patient because I saw her seldom. I became blind in my left eye last year and now my case is more complex. I need a more attentive opthalmologist.

Worst doctor ever
in Great Falls, VA |
I called and asked the office if they participate with my insurance and they told me that they did. I just received a bill of $109.00 for my 8 year olds routine eye exam. When I called the office they said that I should have read the forms that I signed that said they don't cover vision only medical issues concerning the eyes. Please read carefully before you sign anything here.
in Silver Spring, MD |
This doctor is inconsistent in her 'bedside' manner. She was warm and empathetic on one visit, and, when I complained about the 40 minute wait time, argumentative on the next. Her prescription--improved my ability to see at a distance, while diminishing my ability to read.
