Patient Comments (3)
in Mc Lean, VA |
Doctor Bryant does not listen to the patient's questions and concerns. She cuts off the patient and begins answering the wrong question before questions are completed. She does not appear to realize there's a communication problem when the patient restates the question a different way. When repeating the answer to the wrong question, her tone borders on condescending. Instead of seeking clarification from the patient, she becomes flip and dismissive.
in Fairfax, VA |
Unbelievable care, understanding and of course a great pair of hands with challenging retina issue. Forthright and took the time to answer all my questions.
in Vienna, VA |
Dr. Bryant's wide experience and profound knowledge enabled her to successfully address an issue with my retina. In addition to the proficient and apparent deep knowledge that she brought to bear on the successful treatment of the problem with my retina and her continued monitoring of my issue, she exhibits a bedside manner that is second to none in my experience with other medical professionals,
