    Dr, Weiss was excellent in the treatment of my cataract. Highly skilled, literally painless process. Answered all my questions and has the process set up in such a way that most are answered before you think of them! Highly recommend Dr. Weiss for this type of treatment.

    Dr. Howard Weiss was recommended by my eye doctor. He is warm, friendly, skilled, and thorough, very knowledgeable. He takes time to explain the procedure, and answer the patient's questions. Followup after eye surgery, excellent. What impressed me, he checked on me the evening after morning eye surgery. The staff @ Washington Eye, Physicians @ Surgeons are very warm and friendly was well. I highly recommend him.

    Dr. Weiss is an excellent Doctor and surgeon and I recommend him without reservation. Through cataract surgery he provided me with better eyesight than I have ever had. He also is very patient oriented, saying "Thank you for allowing me to be your doctor." How often does that happen?
