" I've never received such professional quality care from this office. I've complained in the past with regard to the lack of courtesy and respect shown by some of the staff members. However, yesterday was an amazing experience and the personnel deserves to be recognized, especially Jazamette (sp?) and the young lady responsible for taking pictures, whose name escapes me. What a difference. They were courtesy, professional, welcoming and immediately put me at ease. "

 George - 05/29/2019

" Washington Eye Specialists at Providence Hospital in DC are the best in eye care. They meticulously examine your eyes before prescribing any medications. They equally do a good follow up. "

 Ann - 05/18/2019

" Inorder "

" I did not have to wait very long before being seen for one of four eye test. "

 Monica - 04/24/2019

" The overall quality of care provided would have earned an "Excellent." However, I find a couple of the staff members are in dire need of a class in customer / patient service, especially, the young lady responsible for eye topography scanning. I've been a patient at this office for many years having monthly appointments, and since her employment, she has NEVER introduced herself, has never extended the courtesy of a smile and a warm greeting (i.e. good morning, good afternoon). She brusquely calls out my last name and tells me to take a seat as if she's doing me a favor by doing her job. During my April 23 appointment, her demeanor was so unprofessional, I had to bring it to Dr Gancayc's attention. "

 Bibiana - 04/23/2019

" Good bless you all for your care and service. "

 Pauline - 04/23/2019

" The staff was great very professional, concerning and helpful from the time I arrived until the time I left the office. "

 Margarita - 04/13/2019

" Dr. Gancayco took time to explain the results of the tests that we're performed before he saw me. "

 Shirley - 03/28/2019

" I think Dr. Ghafouri is an excellent doctor and I would recommend him to my friends and relatives. I think that some of the people who administer the two tests, the one with the little white lights and even the one with the star need to be better trained. I've had some that do a good job when administering the tests and others are not that good. They keep telling you that you are moving when you know that you are not. The lady that administered the eye test with the star that I had on my last visit to the office was very good. I didn't have to continue to repeat the test over and over again as on previous tests that I had taken on prior visits to the office. "
