Absolutely recommend. The doctor and staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. The wait was less than a minute from when I checked in - very rare for DC. The technology was advanced and the facilities clean and organized. Dr. Teller wasable to recommend quite a few solutions to fix my dry eyes that my previous doctor did not.

I had a good visit as usual and tests were thorough; the doctor answered my questions and I was given clear information for diagnosis follow up. The only inconvenience was the wait which set me back for another appointment.

Dr. Teller is pretty accommodating and a great doctor that listens to your concerns. However, I had a ton of issues with purchasing lenses and the optician at the K Street location. It has been a month and a half sincemy appointment and I have not received my glasses that I ordered right after my appointment. I called every week and the optician kept saying that it would be there that week. Finally out of frustration for poor communication on their end- I showed up to the office, where the optician tells me my package containing my glasses was lost. Obviously, this was not their mistake, however it was all handled very poorly by the office- lack of communication, failure to follow up, and a poor attitude. When I was explaining to the optician that it has been so long that I was started to get headaches from switching over to my regular prescription contact lenses to a huge contrast in my old glasses- it was met with lack of empathy and extremely poor attitude. This has nothing to do with Dr. Teller's treatment as I think he is a great doctor, but unfortunately with this experience with his staff- I highly recommend going elsewhere when purchasing glasses.

His Zoc docs resume was good so I chose him. I thought he was thorough and a nice person and I trusted his opinion. Haven’t gotten the glasses yet, but I think they will work out. The office was clean andorderly, the equipment was very up to date, wait times were low, and everyone was very helpful. Recommend.

My family has been very satisfied with Dr. Teller for more than 20 years. I usually go to his DC location, but last time the appointment was longer than I anticipated (for good reason) but I got a big DC parkingticket. So I opted to try his Chevy Chase location which features free parking. Bonus was a lunch with an old pal before the appointment.

I love going to Dr. Teller. Everyone in the office is incredibly friendly and I've always had great service. I've been going to eye doctors my whole life because I have awful eye sight, and he's the best eye doctor I'vebeen to. I also had a complication with my eyes, and he did an incredible job working with me to get things back on track.He even remembers things that I forget and always asks about them at my next appointment. Highly recommend!

Dr. Teller and his staff were knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. It was my first eye exam in about 20 years and they really took the time to explain what the different tests were, why they were doing them, and what theresults meant. I also appreciated that Dr Teller and his staff were great about not pressuring me to buy glasses on the spot. Overall an excellent experience.
