Dr. Lobaugh and his staff were extremely kind and professional. This was my first eye exam so they were happy to walk me through each step of the process and explain what they were doing. I felt very lightheaded after theeye pressure test and they handled it very professionally and knew exactly what to do to help me get oriented again. Would definitely recommend going here for eye exams.

My only complaint is that they have a fairly limited selection of frames. Otherwise I'm very happy with Dr. Lobaugh and Eye Rx.

Overall it was a great eye doctor's office in terms of care, but I found the pricing for contact lenses to be really high. Typically when I've gone to get new contacts I'm offered a slew of different options at differentprice points. This time I was offered one type of (expensive) contacts, and told I'd need to talk to the doctor if I wanted something else. That was the first time I encountered that sort of system. The wait time was also really long. My appointment was for 11 AM but I didn't get out of there until nearly 1 PM. I'm not sure why it took so long..

I moved to Dr. Lobaugh from the Myeyedoctor location on Capitol Hill primarily because of the positive reviews on ZocDoc. My eye exam with Dr. Lobaugh was much more thorough than previous Myeyedoctor's exam. His staff was super friendly as well and the salespeople were not overly pushy.

You'll have to wait a little while, but Dr. Lobaugh is great! He is very knowledgeable and very thorough in his evaluations. In other words, he won't just tell you anything to get you out of his chair. I've been comingto him for over a year, so far I have no complaints.
