Received absolutely great service at Busack Eye Center. Entire staff is very customer oriented . Dr. Busack is great. I had both of my eye lens replaced and I now have 20 / 20 vision in both eyes. I highly recommend Busack Eye Center for your eye care needs.

Dr. Busack did surgery on both my eyes. He is the BEST!!!! He's a terrific surgeon with compassion, a sense of humor, and A+ competency in his profession. I am very fortunate I was referred to him and blessed with great sight, after the surgeries. He has the most amazing charts to help each patient follow all the appropriate times and number of eye drops required. He and his office staff are so organized, that your appointment flows smoothly through all the assessments. I would reccomend him.

Dr. Busack is not only highly skilled as a physician, his caring and kind manner is highly reassuring. I recommend him to anyone in need of compassionate and competent surgical eye care.
in Washington, DC |
Dr. Busack is a highly skilled and caring physician. I am always apprehensive about undergoing any procedure that has to do with my eyes. I have been treated by Dr. Busack for over fifteen years, and he has always had a way about him that has made me feel less anxious and confident about a procedure. He will put you at ease by patiently explaining his procedures and answering your questions. I highly recommend him, and I give Dr. Busack and his staff an excellent rating. Thomas Mitchell
