in Washington, DC |
Dr. Lamba has been my eye doctor for at least 5 years now, after my previous doctor at GWU Medical Associates moved elsewhere. She is impeccably professional: highly trained, skillful in practice, cheerful and lucid in explaining conditions and plans, prepared to operate on my right-eye cataract for two years now, but not pushing for it. She advises me how conditions let me wait, but she is willing to do it at any time. She is one of the best doctors I've ever had.

Dr. Lamba has been great communicator and relief to my 80 year old dad. His prior experience with an eye dr was not as pleasant as this one. We are great full for your hospitality Dr.

This was the worst experience in this country to date--only to be compared with a 3rd world public hospital. Long wait without any good excuse. . Dr didn't write a new prescription, even when I asked, bc she said my sight remained the same, yet when I called the very next week for a copy of my prescription they told me they cdnt write it unless I came back in for another visit. When I tried to explain the assistant, said she had a patient to attend to and got off the phone. the pits
