Overall experience was very positive. Dr. Essepian performed two cataract surgeries. With one surgery, there was a complication. Dr. Essepian and his staff were extremely responsive. I was seen on a Sunday for emergency treatment. I experienced Dr. Essepian as highly professional and competent. While he is not warm and fuzzy, he is reassuring empathic, highly knowledgeable, and very competent. The practice is well organized and efficient. I am very pleased with my care.
Annandale, Virginia |
Although highly recommended, IMO, the jury is still out on his skill performance. However, after 5 visits, his demeanor is still curt, aloof, borders on rude, not forthcoming in explaining procedures, does not encourage questioning, in fact it's like pulling teeth to get any meaningful information from him. I've been waiting to give him the benefit of the doubt, but rapport has gotten worse, rather than better. I wish it were different!
Manassas, VA |
I felt he was one of the very best doctors for my surgery and I was not disappointed. He completed both my cataract surgeries and I experienced absolutely no pain and had the very best care.
in Potomac, MD |
I recommended Dr. Essepian as soon as I returned home from my first appt! He's so thorough, patient, and diagnosed two eye specific concerns that no other ophthalmologist has ever identified before! I'm very impressed and satisfied!
in Shippensburg, PA |
The Lasik procedure performed was satisfactory and I had no real issues. However a letter of relocation was sent to me by the Doctor explaining his support for enhancements was included in my original surgical fee has proven to be worthless. He no longer supports enhancements as the letter states he would. Surgical skills good but integrity of promises completely false. When I called to inquire about the enhancement request the office staff promised to get back to me and never did. GH
