My experience with Dr. Weiss was very positive. He was very patient, knowledgeable, and polite as well as having extensive experience in visual conditions and surgery. He called me after the surgery to check on me and gave me his cell # in case I had any questions. He did an excellent job for me and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing this type of treatment.

in McLean, VA |
I highly recommend Dr. Weiss. He did cataract surgery on both of my eyes, and I am very pleased with the results. In addition to the excellent results of the surgery, I was also very impressed with Dr. Weiss' friendly, professional manner and his thoroughness in examining my eyes. I had lots of questions, and he patiently answered them. I have never felt rushed during my office visits with him. I have also been impressed with the technicians and other office staff.

Dr. Weiss was extremely professional in his interaction with me with an excellent outcome related to my cataract surgery. His follow-up care and personal interaction after surgery was most reassuring. I would recommend him to anyone seeking eye care and/or eye surgery.
Rushed Inexperienced technician Expensive tests not covered by insurance encouraged
in Silver Spring |
He explained all options clearly. I never thought I would say that I enjoyed surgery, but I really did. No pain or discomfort. After the surgery everything was much clearer. Also, whites are much whiter.
