I've been seeing Dr. Lobaugh for quite a few years. He remembers me every time I see him (even early on when I started going to his practice). He's incredibly professional, efficient, yet kind. His staff is the same. I would highly recommend him and his practice.

Dr. Lobaugh was the first OD I visited when I moved to the DC area. At my first appointment (2017), he was able to identify an issue that my previous doctors had continually missed. His careful examination prevented further damage to my vision and I was able to have the problem corrected quickly. His staff is friendly and the office space modern and clean. I would highly recommend Dr. Lobaugh.

I had an appointment later in the day and the office was able to squeeze me in a bit earlier, which I appreciated. It took awhile with the machines and the person operating them to take the eye picture which was a bit time consuming but it happens. The computers locked out one of the opticians which further delayed my appointment but overall they were really great and appreciated their flexibility.

I am a long time patient of Dr. Lobaugh's and appreciate his service generally. However, I was made to wait an hour and did not receive any notice as to this delay (which apparently was known in advance), nor any updates by his staff. What is the point of an online notification and having my phone number, if you do not use it to notify me of your delays. Please remedy this in the future. If the doctor expects to be more than 15 minutes late; notify and propose rescheduling.

Dr. Lobaugh was very thorough and professional. I was able to get a same-day appointment for something with my eye that I had a concern about. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a good eye doctor. The office staff was very friendly and helpful since it was my first time there.

As soon as I walked into the office, I was welcomed by various staff members. Dr. Lobaugh was very attentive and patient. I did not feel rushed through my appointment as I have felt with other providers. He helped me to find the right eyeglass prescription for me. Definitely recommend!

They didn’t give me my glasses prescription before I left the office. They said they would mail but did not send it to me. I returned to the office two weeks later after they said they could not email. Will not be going back. The whole reason I went was to get my prescription. Don’t try to pressure me into purchasing glasses.

Dr. Lobaugh was great but one of his opticians was really difficult to work with. The optician couldn't or wouldn't provide information on pricing for contact lenses. I ended up just walking out and will call back hoping to speak with someone else.

Dr. Lobough was excellent. He really listens and resolves the issue immediately and he is not over zealous about charging for every little thing. His receptionist, Ryan, is definitely the cream of the crop and very personable. I felt at home after being forgotten and canceled without my knowledge by another doctor.
