Really great and fast experience! My only hesitation is the cost of the contact lenses but I have an astigmatism in both eyes so they always are expensive.

very personable, not sure why he didn't have equipment to do the check I was there for and warned me about how it would be if I went to his other office in Pentagon, cab accident prevented that.

I've been a patient of Dr. Bindal for 2 years now. Every experience is always very pleasant. The staff works together well to get you through your exam seamlessly. On top of that, Dr. Bindal takes his time with you andtalks you through all the different options. He's also upfront and honest about pricing as well. When it comes to choosing my frames and getting my lens cut each year, the staff is very knowledgeable and talks you through the pricing so you can make the best decision for you. This year they even had my lens on site so I was able to leave with a sample of contacts as well as my glasses!

I had an excellent experience Dr Bindal as well as the staff in his office. There was no waiting and they had my Zocdoc paperwork, so I was in an out for my exam in less than 20 mins having thefirst appt of the day. Dr Bindal himself was great and did a thorough exam while explaining the details along the way. Staff was friendly and helpful throughout the process. Highly recommended!

Everyone working here was competent and cheerful; the wait was atrocious, but I'm pretty sure this was an anomaly--it didn't seem normal for them to be that far behind. Maybe book earlier in the day if you can to try to avoid a long wait.

Dr. Bindal was extremely attentive and knowledgeable. Every staff member I interacted with was very friendly and helpful. It was a truly wonderful atmosphere. My hubby and toddler tagged along, and everyone was super supportive of a clingy babe. :) I will absolutely be back.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Bindal for years, even continuing to do so after having moved from Arlington to Fairfax. It’s been worth the drive. I appreciate his professionalism, friendliness, and good humor. I also appreciate the times I’ve been ableto get a same-day appointment for eye problems, including my most recent visit. He thoroughly explained what caused my issue, showed me where on my eye it occurred, and spoke at length with me about how best to manage and treat it. Great experience overall.

It was my first visit and I must say that I was impressed. The decor is very elegant and the staff are professional and extremely friendly. The only thing I'd like to warn new patients is that parking is crazy! Notonly do you have to use the coin machines to pay but parking is very limited because of the other shops within the center. Overall, it was a great experience and not only would I recommend but I'll definitely be going back myself.

I think this was one of the more efficient doctor's visits I have had. Since I was a new patient, I had filled out the forms online. The staff was ready for me when I checked in. I was seen immediatelyby a staff member who performed a couple tests. Then I saw the doctor for some discussion. I went to do a couple more tests and finished up discussions with the doctor. He wanted to be sure he had answered all of my questions, which he had. When paying, the staff person handled it quickly and efficiently. There was no high pressure to immediately get new glasses and they gave me my prescription with no issues. They also discussed with me what was covered by insurance and what wasn't. All in all, I was very pleased with my appointment and will be sure to go back for any future needs.

It was very professional and warm. I thought it was expensive even though I had good vision insurance but I’m not regretting the visit at all. I have a free contacts follow up in a week just to make sure thesample she gave is working right before I order them, which I really appreciate.

Doctor Bindal is capable but young and unseasoned with a bedside manner in need of attention. No effort was made to get to know me as a new patient. Overall her staff were less than helpful and welcoming and I had an inordinate wait time of an hour.

No information from ZocDoc was provided to them ahead of time so I had to fill out the forms again. Not a huge issue, but a bit of an inconvenience. This was my second time with them and no information wason hand about my last visit as they had recently converted to an electronic record keeping system. The exam was quick and painless

Overall, the appointment was very good. Doctor seemed like a pro, and I felt taken care of. Only complaint was that I was made to wait while they saw someone who had an appointment scheduled 20min after me - but Iassume that's because I filled out my information upon arrival and they needed to enter it into the system. Everyone was extremely friendly and knowledgeable.

The staff was super friendly, nice, and upbeat. The provider I saw was very nice and the appointment itself was quick and easy. The only reason I’m not giving it 5 Stars is because I did have to wait 30 minutesbecause they were behind on appointments. Other than that, it was great.

The Dr was fine, but the office/billing were atrocious. They did not prepare the bill correctly the first time so it was denied by insurance. We spent significant amount of time working with the insurance company and the Dr's office tryingto sort out the problem. Fast forward TWO YEARS LATER, and they STILL have not corrected the original billing error, have made numerous new mistakes (all of which have been 100% the Dr's billing) and have been harassing us and the insurance company because of their incompetence. Their treatment has been absolutely shameful and unprofessional. I unequivocally do NOT recommend this office.
