Dr. Josephson and his staff offer the best services, flawlessly. The cataract surgery was much easier than anticipated. I highly recommend the laser method as it went fast and painless. The follow-up phone calls and attention at the office went perfectly as well. For the follow-up exam, Dr. Pierce was patient with me and answered every question. I am actually looking forward to having my other cataract removed in the coming months.

Dr J has performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes this year. This has included numerous office visits before and after each surgery. He has always provided all explanations, provided easy to understand answers to my questions. and he encourages those questions. I was also impressed that, after my first surgery, he was able to predict when I would be ready for the surgery in my other eye, and he has us schedule it based on this. For months, I was not experiencing any problems and wondered if I would be ready for it by the time the surgery day came. About 2 weeks ahead of the surgery, it became obvious that he had called it right from the start, more than 6 months ahead of time.

Dr. Josephson was patient with my questions and never made me feel rushed; I had 100% of his attention. I never had a moments worry -- I knew I was in good hands. The office staff was pleasant and helpful. I never waited more than 5 minutes beyond my appt time.

Dr. Josephson was very kind and knew right away that my glaucoma Was very bad. He added another drop for night time use and I will return in six weeks. Very professional and he knew what he needed to do without my records to check my history on my eye care. I was please with his staff who were very kind. After being with my doctor for 15 years I feel very comfortable With Dr. Josephade.

Dr. Josephson extracted cataracts from each of my eyes over the past year. Each experience was outstanding. He thoroughly explained the options, benefits and drawbacks, helping me make the best informed decision. I would use him again should I have need for other eye surgery.

Dr. Josephson runs an efficient practice in Fairfax VA. The patient is normally taken into the offices for testing on time. A young assistant runs test, checks the pressure in each eye, runs a peripheral vision check, etc. She enters information into the computer and gets you ready to see the doctor. Dr. Josephson is outstanding. He examines you, answers your questions, advises you on a treatment plan. His surgery for cataracts was exceptional. I experienced no pain, swelling, etc. My vision has been improved way more than I had expected. If you have problems with your eyes, Dr. Josephson is your man!

Dr. Josephson never explained the potential problems with the Symfony lens to me. The surgery he did on my eyes has ruined my life. He tried to fix my problem by doing a procedure that now makes it much more difficult to replace the lens. That procedure did not help at all. I truly wish I could give zero stars.
