Patient Comments (4)
in Washington, DC |
My wallet was stolen including a copy of my eyeglass prescription. I was able to replace all cards replaced within two weeks, except for my eyeglass prescription. I am NOT buying new eyeglasses. Dr. Butrus’ office initially said that it is ILLEGAL (later retracted) to give me a copy of my three year old prescription. I called for an explanation and was not given a satisfactory response. I was told that to get a copy, I needed a new prescription ($250+).

I arrived a few minutes early, waited about 10 minutes & was taken back to an examination room. Dr. Butrus had another patient, but he stuck his head in to say he would see me in a few minutes. He saw me in just a few minutes. The staff are very people friendly and you are immediately put at ease when you enter the office. The staff all work well together. Dr. Buturs is a very people friendly ophthalmologist. He also has a great sense of humor. Office is near Eastern Market Subway. GOOD!

I have been a patient of Dr. Butrus' for several years. I'm appreciative of his knowledge, his bedside manner,personality and demeanor. His office setting is that of a family setting. You feel at home and not like you're at the doctor's office.
