in Burke, VA |
Dr. Josephson has completed the work of a different Doctor. He has cleaned the obscuring film behind both of my replacement lenses (cataract replacement lenses) easily and thoroughly. He is very personable and reassuring. His office staff are very receptive, and competent. I am so pleased to ever have discovered his services.

What a wonderful Doctor, he did me surgery, he is excellent!

Dr. Josephson is an amazing eye surgeon. I am 46 years old and had Symfony lenses to replace my natural lenses. My vision had gotten so bad I couldn't see anything clearly without glasses at any distance. These lenses have changed my life. When I had a slight issue with one eye, he was available after hours and quickly fixed the problem and alleviated my fears. I would recommend him to anyone at any age for any eye condition.

Dr. Josephson is, in my opinion and based on my experiences as his patient, an outstanding Ophthalmologist who restored vision quality to me that I hadn’t had since I was a teenager, which includes the benefit of eliminating the need to wear glasses. The bottom line is that I highly recommend Dr. Josephson to anyone in need of the services of a quality and caring Ophthalmologist. Trusting your eyes to someone takes a high level of confidence and Dr. Josephson is most deserving of that trust.

My multi-year ophthalmologist just retired; his office recommended Dr. Josephson. During my first visit (of many to come, probably) the staff and Dr. Josephson were as cordial as one could expect. Dr. Josephson was matter-of-fact with a confident attitude and certainly his background strongly supports that confidence.
in Herndon, VA |
Our son needed to have xrays and a physical exam after a hit and run incident damaged his face, eye area and cheek. We called on Friday and were able to see Dr. Josephson on Saturday morning! Impressed with his explanation of the images and grateful he was able to see us so quickly!
in Woodbridge, VA |
I was fortunate to have discovered Dr.Josephson while enduring a painful cornea condition. Surgery was scheduled and performed just two days after my initial diagnostic appointment. Dr. Josephson took the time to explain the procedure to me, thoroughly answered my numerous questions, and was affable and reassuring throughout the entire process. Highly recommended!

Dr. Josephson and his staff were very professional, explained every step of my eye exam, and I felt very comfortable in their care. My husband will be making an appointment with Dr. Josephson too.
in Clifton, VA |
My experience with Dr. Josephson was very positive. The front office was helpful with the scheduling and check-in process, the doctor's examination was thorough. The doctor gave me several options to consider for my eye condition. Totally impressed with his attention for explaining medical details. True medical professional and his entire staff are very welcoming, Will definitely recommned him to any person looking for eye care .

He has operated on both my eyes at different times and achevied excellent results. I have complete trust in him and his skills as a surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone needing help and guidance on problems with their eyes.
in Leesburg, VA |
Needed a refill for eyedrops. Made an appointment and asked for the RX refill. Dr. Josephson was nice and caring. He checked to make sure my vision was okay and said the prescription should be on the way. I received the refill the day after the appointment. Yes, yes, yes, I would recommend him to friends and family. His practice is 10 out 10.

Dr. Josephson is one of the most caring and compassionate doctors of any I've ever had. He'll spend time with you, explain everything, and follow up with a level of personal attention and care that is remarkable. Looking at his charitable works, I believe that this is because it's just who he is as a person. I respect many of my doctors for their knowledge and skill. With Dr. Josephson, I can add that I also respect him for his character.
