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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
