Dr Teller is a very caring and professional eye doctor. He listens to concerns and questions, and gives patients the time and consideration they need.
Ben has taken excellent care of me for around 20 years. I literally put my vision in his hands. He is a trusted "friend".
I have been a patient of Dr. Teller’s for about 14 years and am always happy with him, the office equipment and staff and the eye glass/contact ordering. They are great!
Dr Teller and his assistant were extremely professional, thorough and pleasant. Ordering contacts and updating my prescription was simple. I highly recommend Dr Teller and his associates.
Dr. Teller is very thorough and informative! Great bedside manners. I did not feel rushed at all and he seems to genuinely care for the (eye)health of his patients.
Very friendly staff and Dr. Teller was attentive and welcoming.
Excellent he is a great Dr!
I nearly fainted during the middle of my exam and Dr. Teller was beyond outstanding in maneuvering the unexpected turn of events. He knew exactly the steps to take to alleviate my discomfort. He’s a really great doctor!
Dr. Teller is wonderful. He is a great professional. He put me at ease and explained everything to me. The office is not with a wonderful, friendly staff. Dr. Teller uses the latest state-of-the-art equipment in his treatment.
I have a fear of eye doctors, but Dr. Teller and his staff were amazing! I definitely recommend to anyone who's anxious about eye exams!
Outstanding consultation. Smart, warm, and efficient. Best experience with a medical professional in a long time.
This was my first eye exam and they did a great job explaining things and making me feel comfortable. Front desk staff was very friendly and professional and the wait time was next to nothing. Definitely recommend!
Great, informative visit with friendly staff!
I was happy with my experience. They took the time and explained things as they went along.
Dr. Teller and the entire staff are friendly and knowledgeable. They embody exactly what you want in a doctor's office. Highly recommend.
This was my first time seeing Dr. Teller so I got to the office well before my appointment, assuming I'd have to go through insurance and patient history. The automated check-in and insurance was awesome! I was in and being seen BEFORE my scheduled appointment time. Both the assistant (who took my history and did the preliminaries) and the glasses person (George) were true professionals and very pleasant. My wife is already a patient and I'm very glad I made the switch from my previous eye doctor on her recommendation!
Excellent doc and office. Always prompt and efficient and thorough. A+++!
Dr. Teller is great - explains everything clearly, listens to patient issues, office is well run.
Dr. Teller was very pleasant and informative. I'm very happy with Dr.Telle.
Great visit. Dr. Teller was very nice and explained everything very well. Easy, thorough, nice efficient office. Will come back for sure!
Dr. Teller and his staff are fantastic. I've been there three years now, with three different insurance plans, and they have always been helpful and efficient.
Very thorough, quick and professional. Highly recommend.
Dr. Teller was very professional and approachable throughout the consultation!
Medical assistant, Obie, was also great. The Dr. and his assistant both look and act like they are knowledgeable and want to be of service!
Dr. Teller has been my doctor for many years. He does an outstanding job and has an excellent way of dealing with patients.
Very professional and friendly at all contact points.
I usually go downtown, but I decided to give Bethesda a try. While the driving distance from Arlington is a little further, traffic moves faster. Plus Bethesda has parking. The practice is very busy. There were lots of adorable kids when I was there. My appointment was efficient. The intern handled the tests and he was terrific. Love the new software that lets me see my test results as a picture. Dr. Teller at EyeRX remains my go-to eye doctor.
prompt caring service. Dr Teller is Kind and knowledgable. He also follows up on past appointment information. Highly recommend.
Dr. Teller is wonderful! I've been seeing him for about 2 years. He's very attentive and thorough.
I have been going to Dr. Teller for over 8 years. He is fantastic.
Great doctor - efficient, good beside manner and nice office staff!
Dr. Teller and his staff were very professional, and friendly.
This has been the second time I have been to Dr. Teller and both times I have been very happy with my visit! I plan to continue seeing Dr. Teller as my optometrist and I would recommend him to any of my friends.
An absolute pro. Explained everything very thoroughly, was incredibly kind, and I'm very sad that he doesn't also have an office in NYC. Otherwise I'd never go anywhere else.
Very nice experience overall.
Everyone was great - technician, doctor, and optician. Professional and thorough!
Dr. Teller and his office team are terrific! I've been seeing Dr. Teller for years; today I also saw Obie in his office. Professional, thorough, friendly -- highly recommend.
He is the best!!! Won't see anyone else.
Highly recommend - very pleasant experience, and entertaining too!
Today was my first visit to Dr. Teller, and it will definitely be the first of many! Dr. Teller was extremely affable and very interested in anything that I had to say. He was extremely thorough in explaining everything that was happening in the exam room as well as any follow up that may be needed. I will be telling anyone who will listen what a wonderful doctor Dr. Teller is as well as what a fantastic staff he has along side him.
He was very professional and thorough
I think the office is very professional, I don't like how the assistant does everything and he just comes in and explains. I think if I am paying for the dr. visit he should be doing it.
He is a nice person, very informative and reassuring.
Really enjoy this office. Everyone is friendly and professional. And most importantly, thorough. I really feel like I'm getting quality healthcare. Would recommend.
Dr. Teller even examined me when his office lost power one day (construction nearby), as I was concerned about a possible detached retina. He is a caring doc.
Very knowledgeable, thorough and professional...plus pleasant.
Dr. Teller is amazing and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is very thorough, knowledgeable and was very patient with my questions.
Appointment was on time and efficient--staff was friendly and helpful
He was amazing. I've had a lot of issues with my eyes and been to numerous doctors. This was one of my favorite doctor offices. And everyone was extremely sweet and professional!
Dr Teller and his staff are top-notch. I would highly recommend him. He is very thorough. The best eye doc I have seen in my 40 years of getting my eyes checked. My only little complaint is there is also a child's eye specialist on one side of the practice, so sometimes there are lot of kids around. However, it's worth putting up with. ;)
Dr, Teller is very good at the specialty of treating keratoconus patients and fitting them with contact lenses. Routine paperwork such as refilling prescription medications and insurance issues leaves a lot to be desired. I always have to wait whenever I come, whether mornings or afternoons, but if I need an appointment, he usually has good availability. So high marks on medical care, low marks on administrative issues.
The Chevy Chase office is such a great place. Short waits, pleasant people at the front desk and in the eyeglass area. The assistants are great and friendly. Dr. Teller is such a good doctor: explains everything thoroughly, listens patiently.
I came in with what I thought was a scratch on my eye but turned out to be an infection. Dr. Teller diagnosed it quickly, showed me pictures, gave me samples of the Rx I would need and showed me how to apply the drops. Very professional, thorough and friendly!
He's been my doctor for many years. If you have keratoconus or wear contacts-this is your doctor.
Dr. Teller is very thorough & very competent, he discovered something that was overlooked by other Dr.'s I could have lost my eyesight. I am very grateful I went to see him.
Saw Dr. Teller and his student doctor. High tech equipment, lots of questions about history, and excellent care. New diagnoses were explained to me carefully and thoroughly, without condescension. Dr. Teller was friendly and professional, as was his resident. I was extremely satisfied with my care and recommendations. I will say the office staff pushed too hard with purchases of contacts and glasses through them, even when I declined and said I would use outside retailers, they continued to push me to purchase my glasses and contacts through the office.
I thought Dr. Teller was extremely thorough, friendly and professional and took the time to explain my exam results to me and find the best options for me. I would absolutely go back to him in the future and recommend him to friends and family.
Dr. Teller and his associates are great. They are thorough and will explain the check up to you as they go. Will return.
Took a bit of time to be seen but otherwise no complaints about the examination, doctor, or staff.
Thorough, patient, and comforting
I always get excellent care at Eyes Rx, for my eye exam and contact lens fitting. I highly recommend Dr. Teller and his staff.
Fantastic doctor and staff. Checkout was a little slow, but otherwise very good!
I'm glad I found Dr. Teller after he moved to a different office. He's thoughtful and takes time to listen to your concerns. Also, his staff is excellent.
Excellent overall but needs to integrate with ZocDoc to prevent duplicative check in procedures and background questions re medications, etc
He was fantastic!
Super friendly and great environment!
Great doctor, very thorough exam, great team. Dr. Teller seemed in a bit of a rush, but was very kind and happily answered my questions.
Very high tech and efficient office, but the personal service was great as well.
In and out within an hour. Appreciate being able to purchase my lenses at the time of visit. Everyone is super friendly.
Fast, friendly, efficient, affordable - and best of all, didn't try to upsell me on anything!
The visit was very thorough. I am usually not comfortable at these types of Dr visits but, I was at ease from the beginning.
A very nice guy, who showed class and professionalism.
Great visit. Dr. Teller is the consummate pro. The office is spotless and everyone from the receptionist to the tech to the doctor to the cashier was perfect.
My visit to Dr. Teller office was great, from the receptionist to the eyewear professionals, the entire staff was very polite and courteous. I would highly recommend Dr. Teller
Highly trained medical care (even for complex) plus kind staff and competent. Onsite optometry. One stop shop. Efficient and high quality.
Overall, a very good eye doctor. I had to wait about 15 minutes before being seen by one of the other doctors. After dilation, I had to wait about 20 minutes before being seen by Dr. Teller. He had great bedside manner and was efficient. The only negative thing about my visit was the waiting - I spent about an hour and 40 minutes total at the office, which seems like quite a long time for an annual checkup and contact lens fitting.
Very attentive and informative
All the staff I interacted with were very friendly and welcoming - had a great experience!
I went to doctor Teller after my doctor retired and his son took over. After many years with the same practitioner, I found myself looking for a replacement because for the first time in many years, I struggled with a terrible eyeglass prescription and was told by the new doctor that a diagnosis from a specialist was wrong. Dr. Teller came up with a prescription that should end my misery, and he reaffirmed the diagnosis from the specialist, thus affirming the many positive reviews that brought me to choose Dr. Teller--a true professional!
Everyone in the office was very kind and professional. Really no wait time. Edmund was great and thorough during the initial exam and Dr. Teller was really great and explained everything to me. The office was clean, efficient, and welcoming.
Great team, super nice - very helpful with explaining things. Highly recommended and a secret store with beautiful glasses to chose from!
I really enjoyed Dr. Teller and his team. I felt like Dr. Teller was truly concerned with my optical health, and even took pictures (at my special request) to include in my file for future evaluation.
I was a new patient and extremely impressed with my first visit to Eye Rx. Excellent service and Dr. Teller was informative and very kind. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Teller took his time with me to explain all of my symptoms & test results. Appreciated his care immensely & would recommend to anyone.
Dr. Teller and his staff are great! Friendly and efficient, highly recommend.
The staff and the doctor were very helpful, thorough, and kind. My only complaint is that I had to wait about a half-hour for the appointment and my appointment lasted over an hour. That is a lot of time out of a work-day but they were very thorough.
Tremendous in every way.
Follow up appointment to see if contacts for close vision could be adjusted. Dr. Teller came up with a solution and didn't charge me for the appointment. New student tech assistant was pretty green but I'm sure he'll learn.
Great as usual!!00
Dr. Teller is an excellent OD, he has given me the very best care over the years. He takes the time to explain any issues or tests that he is recommending and provide the very latest preventative tests to ensure the health of my eyes.
Love if. He is a really good doctor and cares about his patients eye health!
Dr.Teller seems good in what he does but his business model is questionable. He put me on drops (more expensive if you buy right there and they'll tell you those are exceptional drops but actually they are not) and future appointment which didn't seem necessary. The nurse was insisting on doing a test which made my eyes very uncomfortable. I didn't feel really taken care of. They charged me more than the insurance told me I would be charged. It almost feels like they just want to finish the routine and put you on drops so that they can charge you and your insurance.
The Optician staff were particularly helpful and thorough with me!
I've been going to Dr. Teller for many years and always appreciate his minimalist treatment approach. He has the latest technology which is amazing and gives me even more confidence in the exam.
Professional, friendly, and the exam was very thorough. Dr. Teller was very patient and addressed all of my concerns.
Benjamin Teller and his staff were very approachable and accommodating throughout my appointment. I would highly recommend them for an eye consultation!
Dr. Teller and his staff always provide excellent service.
Dr. Teller was professional and very knowledgeable. He was efficient the wait wasn't unreasonable (~30 mins). Office staff was friendly and the equipment was up-to-date. Overall, I was impressed and I believe I have found my optometrist in DC. 5/5 would recommend to my family and friends.
Everything was fine, but I'm still going to check with my LASIK surgeon before I go ahead with Dr. Teller's recommendation to get reading glasses. I had LASIK done a year and a half ago and I'm not quite 30. I'm wondering if my sight issues can be corrected with a LASIK adjustment.
Fantastic doctor, fantastic staff -- took the time to figure out my problem and put a solution in place.
He and the technician, Christina, listened and were careful and thorough in all they did.
Once I checked in everything was fine but I found the machine to check in very frustrating. I had to really poke hard to type in letters and numbers, and even then the machine skipped letters or numbers I typed. I had to retype much of the information to get it right.
Dr. Teller was fantastic. He took the time to answer my questions, was extremely friendly, and overall a great doctor. I would definitely recommend him and this office to anyone.
This is a busy practice but we did not have to wait long at all. The examination was thorough, very informative, and everyone was incredibly nice and helpful. Strongly recommend Dr. Teller!
Dr. Teller is very personable and I felt that he conducted a thorough eye exam. He does a great job explaining any issues as well as your prescription. I didn't feel the same way about his medical assistant though, since she didn't seem comfortable with the eye exam equipment and only fully dilated one of my pupils. Wait time was long: I saw the medical assistant 40 minutes after my appointment start time (I arrived 25 minutes before my appointment). Dr. Teller came in to see me 70 minutes after my appointment start time.
Dr. Teller and his team are fantastic. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. I had a bit of a wait before my appointment, but one of the women working there helped me pick out new frames for my glasses in the mean time. Another woman (the nurse or assistant?) who was helping me with the preliminary tests before I saw Dr. Teller was really friendly and helpful as well. Last, Dr. Teller answered all my questions clearly and helpfully, and never made it seem like I was asking a dumb question or taking too much of his time. I left my last eye doctor because he had been condescending and rushed, and it was great to have a doctor who was the total opposite. I'll definitely be returning to his office.
Dr Teller and his staff are thorough, professional and patient. I'm very glad I found their practice.
Dr. Teller took the time to give a thorough explanation and answer any questions I had. He was very thorough and helpful.
Excellent as always
My first visit was a great experience. I was well treated by Dr. Teller and his staff. Thorough examination, plenty of time for questions and clarifications, and new prescriptions on the go. I'd recommend him.
I ve been going to Dr. Teller for at least 5 years. He is always very professional. I have keratoconus in both eyes and this doctor is a pro in fitting contacts with this kind of condition. Highly recommend this doctor.
Fantastic, as always!
Dr. Teller is very professional, has a great 'bedside manner' and takes time to answer questions -- I liked him a lot. His staff at the office are also quite helpful and friendly. The only down side is that I waited for almost 30 minutes for my appointment to start and it took a pretty long time. The upside is that they are thorough. The downside is of course that they're not speedy. Overall I am very satisfied and will definitely be back.
I was seen very promptly. Everyone in the office is pleasant. I would recommend Dr. Teller to anyone looking for an optometrist.
Thank you for an excellent visit. Highly recommended for professionalism and demeanor.
The staff was very efficient and courteous. The technicians were well trained and friendly. The facility was clean and well maintained. Dr. Teller was very professional. He provided a complete narrative and clarifying explanations of what he was seeing as he examined my eyes. I was fitted with new glasses quickly and for a very reasonable amount. Overall, this was a great experience. If you are unsatisfied with your current optometrist, I highly recommend you try Dr. Teller.
Amazing - highly reccomend! Am switching from My Eye Dr to him. Much more thorough and friendlier.
All of the staff were extremely friendly. Checking in was easy and I was taken back immediately. My visit was handled professionally, friendly, and efficiently. All of my questions were answered from start to finish & I left with a high quality, affordable box of contacts. If you're looking for an eye doctor who has flexible hours and cares about their patents then you should visit Dr. Teller's office.
Everyone in the office is friendly and knowledgeable. I will remain with this practice.
There was a slight delay, as the front desk person was out sick and was not there to open the office at 8, but Dr. Teller's staff was very apologetic and worked to get everything back on track pretty quickly. Everyone was friendly and helpful, and there was no pressure to buy frames or anything I didn't want, which I appreciated!
everything ran smoothly and was on time. Dr. Teller was very nice and helpful as well as all of the assistants in the office.
He is fabulous at what he does and a pleasure to see in the office - same for the entire staff.
The office is very nice and the staff are friendly especially Dr. Teller's assistant and the lady who orders contacts/glasses for you! I've been going to Dr. Teller for years and he is very friendly and professional!
Excellent experience. I highly recommend Dr. Teller and his staff. They were communicative, upbeat, and professional. I haven't had a better experience at an optometrist's office.
I thought my technician was excellent! He did a really good job of explaining all of the tests and how to interpret the results. Great support.
Dr. Teller and his staff were great! They were all very professional, helpful, and knowledgable. Dr. Teller took the time to explain everything to me and walk me through the results of my exam step-by-step. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an optometrist!!
Quite happy. Very well treated.
The staff was very professional and friendly. It has been several years since I've seen an OD so they had new contacts to introduce me to and they were very knowledgeable. When it came time to choose my frames, they didn't tell me to go to the wall and choose what I like, they actually made recommendations and had me try multiple pairs while providing feedback as to what looked good for my facial frame. I definitely recommend this office!
All of the staff were very friendly and the visit was very thorough. It was my first visit but I feel comfortable with the prescription and with their commitment to ensuring that my eyes will continue to be healthy. The only problem was that my appointment was for 8am but staff did not show up until 8:15. I don't find this to be significant enough to change to a different doctor.
Really great - Dr. Teller took the time to explain what my report said and why he was doing the tests. Highly recommend.
Always a pleasure
He was great, and the technician with whom I worked was also great.
Dr. Teller and his assistant were wonderful. Much more high-tech than other eye doctors I have visited, which makes me comfortable that I got the best care possible.
He is the best contact lens fitter I have ever known and I probably have had more than 15 doctors treat my eyeisease. He and his staff are always a pleasure to deal with.
I have been a patient of Dr. Teller for quite a few years. I am always pleased with my exam and his office staff.
I had a great experience with Doctor Teller and his staff. Everyone is incredibly nice at the office and welcoming. I definitely recommend their office!
Dr. Teller and his staff are very professional. Check-in was a breeze at the kiosk without having to fill out tons of paperwork. The staff is very friendly and Dr. Teller is very detailed in his work and with explaining everything. They have a nice selection of stylish frames, but I wish they would get more designer frame options. I would definitely recommend him to others.
Great office & Dr. Super hi tech -- instant scans, etc. Granted its been awhile since I've been to the eye dr. but I still don't think this is the norm for optometrists. Started the appointment early, was never waiting. Tech was funny and put you to ease. Dr. Teller was friendly and to the point, happy to explain what he was seeing. Optician/billing was very friendly and helpful, and never pushy about selling glasses. They had my insurance all pulled up and I was in/out in no time. Would gladly go back. Was bemoaning the fact my insurance had changed, but not anymore. I like this practice better than the last.
Excellent technician who did preparatory exams.
Easy appointment, everybody was super nice. Asked questions and got informative answers. Felt like attention was given to prevent future problems rather than only fixing current ones. Dr Teller seems like a knowledgeable and thorough doctor.
The staff took good care of me and I will definitely go back!
I wasn't called from the waiting room until 30+ min after my appointment time. Things went great once I got in there, but the whole visit took about an hour and a half...
While I wasn't in the waiting room for that long, I did have to wait over 30 minutes between seeing the medical assistant and the doctor. I had a 7:40 appointment and didn't get out of there until 9:30.
Dr. Teller was extremely knowledgable, thorough, and professional. After experiencing numerous "eye salesman" who were more interested in selling glasses or contacts, Dr. Teller is truly an "eye doctor" who cared about my ocular health and improving my vision. He is definitely an 11 out of 10.
I used ZocDoc, made an appt w/ Dr Teller for 9am. All of the emails & texts I received from ZocDoc stated that my appointment was 9:00AM. I arrived, and the Dr office had me my appt listed at 9:20. Got there at 8:55am for my 9am, and was not taken back until 9:55 Docs office swore up & down I was scheduled at 9:20, not 9:00 Could have left my home 30 mins later
Very professional and knowledgeable -
Always a pleasure to see Dr Teller and his staff
Dr. Teller is the BEST optometrist. My eyes are hard to fit with contacts yet he can do it ! Years ago I came to him after other doctors told me they couldn't help me any longer. But Dr. Teller is an expert who takes him time to get things right. He also is the nicest person and he cares greatly about his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Teller.
I had a really nice visit from start to finish. Dr. Teller's intern is actually the one who did my exam, and she was kind, thorough, and knowledgeable. Maggy, the optician, was also really wonderful to interact with and helped me find great frames. Great visit overall!
This was a very long visit (though I didn't wait very long to go back), the vast majority of which was done by an assistant. I felt the whole process could have been much quicker/more efficient, but everyone was friendly and I liked Dr. Teller.
Dr. Teller was very attentive and had a great bedside manner. He made sure to explain the reasoning behind everything that he did and did so using terminology that was easy to understand.
Dr. Teller and his staff were very professional and knowledgable! I would highly recommend them.
Great experience! The staff were super friendly and pleasant. Zack was amazing. He was so patient and kind. I really enjoyed Dr. Teller and he was very thorough. The office was very high-tech and had an easy self check-in process. I will definitely go back! One piece of advice: Go to the Chevy Chase location for the best selection of frames.
Great service, very friendly and very knowledgable staff. Also very up to date on all the latest technology and eyewear.
Dr. Teller has been my optometrist since I was 12yrs old, I'm 30 now and is still very professional, patient and friendly.
The Doctor and his staff were all courteous, helpful, and efficient. I had booked my appt without leaving enough time to get to a meeting I had after the appt. The staff let the Dr. know, and each were helpful in getting me great service while still being out the door in time to make the meeting. Everyone was kind, helpful and informative.
I have been going to Dr. Teller for seven years. He is always courteous and on time.
Dr. Teller has been my eye doctor for over 15 years. He is excellent. He takes the time to do a thorough examination, answers all my questions and explains things clearly. He's always interested in hearing about my family too. His assistant, Nick, is also great. Very professional and friendly. Also Maggie, who fits the glasses. They work closely as a team, and they have regular meetings to discuss office issues and client care to be sure they're offering top-notch service.
Wonderful office staff, easy location to get to, and great doctor! I have found my new vision care center!
Done with confidence.
I don't understand why all the information I filled out in my ZocDoc profile was not forwarded to the doctor's office. I had to fill out exactly the same information at the kiosk in the office. Next time I won't waste time on the ZocDoc website.
Great experience, recommend highly.
There's nothing quite like a healthcare professional who truly cares about you and your well-being. Dr. Teller is the best of the best!
I am really happy with the new contacts he prescribed. I also thought he answered my questions and responded to my concerns. The tech was really helpful and responsive as well.
My visit to Dr. Teller's office was great. I was able to get an appointment on short notice after losing my glasses, had virtually no wait time, was treated respectfully be everyone from receptionist to Dr.'s assistant, to optical shop folks. The office is clean and comfortable with friendly staff. Before using each piece of equipment, Dr. Teller or his assistant wiped it clean with an alcohol swab and consistently checked in with me to assess my comfort and understanding. Dr. Teller communicated very clearly about everything he was doing, why and what it meant. He was patient and listened well. I highly recommend Dr. Teller and his entire practice.
My first visit and hopefully the start of a long term relationship.
Dr. Teller was professional and addressed all of my concerns about my eye care.
Dr. Teller is a true professional and extremely qualified to see to my needs. I enjoy him and the staff.
The wait was 50 minutes and I checked twice before someone actually let me know what was going on. They were backed up because they take walk ins. I didn't like that they were that behind because I missed another appointment.
Recommend his practice
Great! The wait was a little long because of some insurance issues, but the staff and Dr. Teller were all incredibly friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent first visit. The receptionist, assistant and doctor were all very professional, knowledgeable and nice. Highly recommend everything about this place. I have had some eye issues and have seen the same optometrist for 23 years, so venturing to a new optometrist was a bit daunting. But Dr. Teller and his team are awesome and I have definitely found my new eye doctor.
First time using ZocDoc and visiting Dr. Teller. I have to say it was a great experience. The beginning you check in with a machine that takes your ID your insirance, that was pretty cool and fast and since I had already checked in through ZocDoc I didnt have to do any paper work. I saw another person first who conducts an initial exam, takes all the measurements and does most of the appointment before the doctor comes. I think her name was Raki but I'm not sure. She was also excellent in her bedside manner and very nice and did a very thorough exam and made sure that I could see! Then the doctor came, he was very nice and I didn't feel rushed at all. They took their time to double check everything and make sure I understand. The last part was getting the prescription and that also went by smoothly. I would definitely recommend Dr. Teller and his practice to anyone who asks.
Very short wait time in this office. Staff pleasant, in addition to Dr. Teller, who is great. Had to have an additional imaging test done - was able to do it right in the office, so got my results immediately.
Extremely thorough in diagnostic - I went in for a prescription for glasses but some of my answers raised questions. I went thru a 90 minutes full fletch exam (for $30 co-payment). At the end Dr. Teller is sending me to a specialist "just to be sure". I am very impressed.
Horrible doctor. He seemed to me as a salesman rather than a doctor.
My appt was very early, 815 am, and I got there about 810. As a new patient I thought I'd have a bunch of paperwork to fill out, but check in was electronic and quick. I was seen less than 10 minutes afterwards. The visit was very pleasant, first with the tech Dara, then Dr Teller. They were both very pleasant, very thorough, and explained everything. All my issues and needs were addressed. I was given 3 trial pairs of contact lenses and a sample of eye drops, as well as a glasses prescription. I haven't purchased any of these yet, haven't decided! However I'll be doing so soon. Will definitely return.
I've never been treated so nice like this place. They are so professional and and super,super nice people! I can't wait for my next appointment. I would give it 10 stars if I could!!
Dr. Teller and his assistant very pleasant and professional. He took the time to listen and explain everything he did. The 20 minute wait was reasonable. The high-frills practice, however, is clearly geared toward the local upper class population. The kiosk check-in seemed unnecessary and impersonal. Routine services (refraction, contact lens fitting, etc.) are priced well above the norm. Big name fashion frames dominate their selection, with few reasonable options. The service and care is absolutely top notch, but come at a high premium.
Wonderful office, and very convenient to get to from the metro. Everyone who helped me at the office was sweet, informative, and very professional. Dr. Teller came in at the end and is clearly an excellent doctor. The woman who did 90% of the exam with me (I'm sorry I can't remember her name!) was fantastic and gave me lots of helpful information. I'd also be remiss if I didn't mention the two hilarious and professional eyeglass consultants, as well as the receptionist who ordered me an Uber when I couldn't see my phone because of dilation! Great office!
Professionally excellent, but spoiled by having to wait over half an hour to be seen by anyone.
It took me about 60 minutes to get through what should have been a 20 min appointment. Had to wait long periods of time before and during the appointment with no explanation for why everyone was running behind schedule.
I arrived about 1/2 hour early and was seen pretty much right on my scheduled visit time.
He is the best - would highly recommend Dr. Teller!
Terrific - thank you!
Great visit! Everyone is friendly and helpful and I felt like I was in and out in no time!
35 minutes of wait time between waiting to be seen and then waiting at the office for Dr. Teller to visit. Way too long in my opinion. This has happened twice during my visits.
Great experience overall.
Ben Teller was very nice and informative. The wait time was a little ridiculous, but aside from that it was an overall good experience.
This was my first visit with Dr. Teller. He was very personable and informative. He had reviewed my history so was able to discuss expectations for the future. Fortunately, all is good. I look forward to another visit in a year. I am not a big fan of the impersonal kiosk check in.
Provided very detailed service, explained things very well. Provided information about a new type of contact lens that can be used by people who have had radial keratotomy
The wait was a little long but I'm a huge fan of Dr. Teller!
He is great!
Consummate professional and personable! He takes the time to explain any eye issues you may be experiencing and freely offers very helpful advice.
While the wait time was a little frustrating, Dr. Teller was very attentive and friendly once he was able to see me.
Great experience! I would definitely recommend!
There was a lot of waiting in between services.
Very efficient and thorough. No wait to be seen. Everything is digitized.
Very professional and thorough.
Awesome! Great expert.
Things were fine after I was called. I had to wait over 45 minutes. This might have been a fluke because I think this was the first time this has happened.
Dr. Teller is always very pleasant, willing to listen to you, the patient and explain anything you don't understand.
Friendly and helpful staff. The appointment was fast and easy.
I was impressed with Dr. Teller, and I was also very impressed with his technician,
Excellent exam and discussion
Nice friendly personality. Not in a rush.
He's tremendous. Exceptional at fitting difficult contact lenses. Gets to know you and earnestly wants to help solve challenges. Skills + warmth -- what more could one want?
Highly recommend Dr. Teller. He is the best Doctor I have seen in Washington, DC.
I liked Dr. Teller but hated the wait time (more than an hour for the initial visit and the follow-up exactly a week later).
The doctor took his time; explained what he was doing; and was polite and engaging.
Professional, very knowledgeable, helpful and compassionate. Great first visit!
Dr. Teller is terrific. As a result of cornea surgery many years ago (before the world was introduced to Lasik), I am quite a challenge for fitting contact lenses. My irregular eye surface makes it difficult not only for vision, but for the lenses to stay centered. Dr. Teller has been very patient with me (no pun intended) as we've tried a number of options to get it right in the areas of vision, comfort, and centration. I can't thank him enough for taking care of me.
Very helpful, very thorough.
Great Doctor, very friendly
Pleasant and useful as usual.
Very nice doctor - I've been seeing him for three years. I would recommend him to others.
Dr. Teller and all the staff at Eye Doctors of Washington are excellent! I've been wearing glasses or contacts for about 16 years or so, and I have my fair share of eye issues (astigmatism, strong prescription, etc.). Dr. Teller was very kind and personable, and the appointment was a great experience. I was fitted with a new brand of contacts, and my follow-up appointment was just as enjoyable. I'm happy to have found a permanent eye doctor while I'm living in the DC area!
Very helpful. Answered all my questions. Seems very good.
Service was excellent, very friendly and informative.
Dr. Teller has a gentle and kind bedside manner, he was thorough in my check up, and addressed my questions and concerns. I'll definitely recommend him to others.
I think working with him was a great decision!
Dr. Teller has an incredible bedside manner and certain knows his profession. I absolutely trust him with my eyesight and care and have been a patient of his for 20 years! He's the best!
I have seen Dr Teller over the past 8 years for gas perm lenses. Best OD in the DC area.
I would highly recommend Dr. Teller. He is personable, professional, and listens attentively to your issues.
Very thorough. Listened carefully.
great doc, very professional!
As always, it was a good experience.
