Kind, professional, and made me feel like he was taking time to address all of my concerns. His staff were also great, from the techs to the front desk. They made sure all my insurance stuff was taken care of andI didn't have to worry about the details. Office is very conveniently located near the metro and pretty easy to find.

Good treatment, but had to wait a long time to go back and then lots of waiting between all the appointment steps. What should have been 30 minutes was 1.5 hours.

Dr. Lobaugh was great! My appointment was mid-afternoon, for which I was expecting waiting time for 15-30 minutes based on my experience with other doctor offices. But I was being called almost immediately after signing in. The staff there are also very night and professional. Highly recommended!

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.

The admin staff were so, so friendly! I was greeted and seen promptly, and they genuinely seemed to care about getting me taken care of. Dr. Lobaugh did an excellent job clearly explaining exactly what was causing my eye issue andwhat he was prescribing me to resolve the problem. I really appreciated that he took the time to explain in a way that I understood and that made me feel better about getting a resolution soon.

Dr. Lobaugh is a fantastic optometrist. He's extremely thorough, is always generous with his time, and answers questions in an easy-to-understand manner. I am particularly grateful to him for first suspecting that I may have glaucoma, andfor referring me to a specialist who confirmed the diagnosis and who continues to treat me for the condition. I'm very glad I became his patient, as previous optometrists had never noticed anything amiss.
