in Oakton, VA
Both my wife and I have had both eyes operated on for cataracts and the results for both of us has been outstanding. He has an excellent personality and takes the time to make sure his patients feel comfortable with their operation.

Worst Doctor ever! Rude, condescending, and totally full of himself...and frankly he shouldn't be. A graduate of Centre college (? What?), Medical College of Ohio (? Is that even an MD program), and Yale glaucoma fellowship (which is also horrible btw), he has less than impressive credentials. ...more

Dr Mayer is always very attentive and takes some to explain everything in a way that I could understand. When I had an emergency earlier this year, they were able to get me in quick.
