Dr. Barnes appears to be a highly competent, kind and generous individual. I'm confident in his ability to care for me as a patient for years to come. His staff are young professionals who seem to care about the practice as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Barnes to family, friends, acquaintances and even strangers, if asked.

The doctor was great, but his front desk staff were unprofessional. (playing loud music, referring to clients as "Love" instead of by name or "ma'am". The wait time was far too long for such a small office and they could use some updating. Thankfully I came in for an isolated issue and should not need to return anytime soon.

Everyone in the office was great! The doctor and his staff were excellent. The only negative was that they were running significantly late. One suggestion: I filled out the ZocDoc online intake forms and filled out very similar forms at the office. It would be cool if I only had to do one of the two.

Doctor Barnes is a very intelligent and kind doctor. I feel better than normal for being treated well by a terrific friendly doctor. He's a safe "best ever care" for the field of opthamology! I look forward to meeting up again for routine eye treatment.

Dr. Barnes is fantastic and very, very nice! He didn't rush me and explained everything very clearly. Even though I've been wearing glasses/contacts for over 9 years, Dr. Barnes explained more to me in one visit than any of my previous eye doctors.

Dr. Reginald is a very knowledgeable Doctor and he took the time to explain to me what he believes is the sort of my pain in one eye. I have had this pain on and off for many years and it was a relief to finally understand what is happening. My appointment was around 45 minutes and he took a variety of tests (about four or five). He is very well mannered and respectful. The office cancelled my appointment weeks ago and the lady at the front office told me it was because I did not have my insurance card. However, my friend went there with exactly the same situation as mine two weeks before and she had no problem. I even give her the name and last name of my friend, she looked for her one the database, she found her and then she told me yes, you are right but still the office won't take you. Dr. Reginald's assistant is very nice and the guy at the front office is well mannered and calm. I would definitely see Dr. Reginald again.

I think Dr. Barnes is amazing, truly a great doctor to have and I love his personality. The only thing that is a little bothersome is the super long wait after you arrive. Other than that, great staff and great doctor.

The staff was very polite. The ophthalmologist was also both polite and competent/thorough. That said, I experienced a very long wait time. Specifically, a two and a half hour time period elapsed from when I walked into the office (at my appointment time), to when I left.

I really enjoyed coming to Dr. Barnes office. The front office team was super lovely, friendly and professional. I definitely recommend Dr. Barnes to anybody looking for an ophthalmologist in the DC area. Great location. I didn't go to the eye dr. in a long time and this was a great experience. Looking forward to coming back. Thanks!

I sought after Dr. Barnes as an african american eye doctor specifically Unfortunately the service was not up to standard. The front-desk receptionists, spent more time chatting and getting distracted than seeing to patients needs. I was misquoted the price for my treatment. The worst part was the wait. I had to wait 30 minutes between each part of the eye examination. What I thought was going to take an hour took 3 hours for an eye examination and prescriptions. Dr. Barnes himself was very friendly and nice, however his supporting staff were dysfunctional and didn't know how to run a medical office smoothly.

I have consistently waited between one and two hours to see Dr. Barnes, despite always arriving on-time and with an appointment. This has become very frustrating, and despite the doctor's professionalism, I'm very hesitant to go back to his practice.

Although it was a long wait, Dr. Barnes was very apologetic every time he saw me. When the apt started, I did NOT feel rushed as most doctors. He took the time to get to know me and was extremely personable, sincere, and gave me some great financial advise regarding glasses. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. BARNES!

I waited for almost 2 hours. I requested a fitting for contact lenses - which was not done. Dr Barnes was polite and his staff was very nice - but I wasted an inordinate amount of time - and I was told to come back for a fitting for lenses. I think they are overwhelmed.

Dr. Barnes is incredibly nice, kind, and professional. I was 10 minutes late to the appointment because I couldn't find parking, so I understand why the wait was longer. The appointment took longer than I had planned (I was there for 2 hours) but I don't mind, because he was very thorough and explained everything he was doing.
