Turns out Dr. Steer is only there on Fridays so I had Dr. Fowler. She seemed disorganized and was not helpful in explaining what my condition was.

Dr. Steer was very professional. I received nothing less than a 5 star treatment from him and his staff. I'd highly recommend!!

Been going to Dr. Steer since 2013. He's professional and kind; he gets things done pretty quick but isn't averse to chatting for a few minutes about random things. I'll continue to visit until my circumstances change.

Dr. Steer and his staff were great. I was unfamiliar with the location. New patients need to be aware that there is major construction going on in and around the mall. His office is in the mall next to LensCrafter.

I had a experience with Dr. Steer for my little son which is 7 years old, Dr.Steer is professional and I was satisfied by him but his front desk personnel manner was awful, I had a appointment at 3:30 and Iwas onetime but a front desk lady lingered us more than 1:30 hours!

There was a mixup with my appointment time (zocdoc had my time as noon, they had 1:30). The staff was flexible and fit me in at noon. Dr. Steer was very friendly, capable, quick, and easy to talk to. It was a great experience.

Once I found it (it's in Ballston Common, which I didn't realize until I got there), things went smoothly. The staff was nice and the doctor was knowledgeable and helpful. I'm looking forward to getting my new contacts!

If the treatment works I'll likely bump this up to 5 stars (too soon to tell), but the visit itself was great.

He was the consummate professional! I felt that he cared about my eye health as much as I did. As long as I am in the area, I will always go to him!

Staff was helpful. They answered all my questions, and had flexible cancellation policy. Doctor was friendly and straightforward. Uneventful visit. No problems with bill...they called my insurance company to negotiate in-network deal, and they price-match on contacts.

Was treated by another doctor besides Hugh Steer, for the record. Everything was great, place was clean, service was prompt. Like another user, I also had to fill out forms in-person despite having filled out the information online via ZocDoc.

The start was wonderful and professional. I was in and out quickly and efficiently. I went on a Saturday which was great because it fit my schedule perfectly and I did not have to take time from work or anything elseto do it. Dr. Steer was great, funny, and professional. He fit me for contacts and advised me in what to do/what type to get.

Quick and efficient. The tech was good and passed information to Dr. Steer so I didn't have to repeat myself. The office was electronic so everything was processed quickly. He gave me 3 different types of contacts to try out overthe next week before choosing the brand I want to use. There is also a LensCrafters next door so that is convenient.

Very professional and had a nice office with nice staff. Convenient location inside of the mall right off the metro stop in Ballston. I was the first appointment so I cannot speak for the typical wait time but everything was done diligently and I felt well taken care of.
