I've seen Dr. Teller off-and-on for many years. He's always been very nice and professional. Only drawback on the location is of course, parking.

The entire staff was highly professional. My visit with Dr. Teller was very informative, and not the least bit impersonal. I wish all Doctors could be as interactive.

Dr. Teller gave an extremely through exam and took his time explaining things. I have a history of retinal issues, and he saw something that concerned him and promptly contacted my retinologist. I would highly recommend him for his knowledge, professionalism and overall friendly demeanor.

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.

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 seenBEFORE 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!
