I have been a patient of Dr. Adelson's for over 20 years. He is an extremely competent doctor and has performed several operations on my eyes. I suffered with glaucoma for several years but do not have to take drops now due to his successful operations. My eye pressure is below average in each eye thanks for Dr. Adelson
I called to reschedule my appointment with Dr. Adelson. Don't get me wrong, he is one of the best doctors in Washington, DC. However, the problem lies on the staff. First call I did today 8/31, the reception put me on hold for 7 mins.; I called back then again on hold for 15 mins., someone picked up the phone and hang up. Again I called, then got a voice mail saying the Office is CLOSED and to call back the next business day. I just don't believe it!!! I waited more than 20 mins... just for this...
He is very professional and thorough and considerate and takes time to answer questions and explain conditions. I consider myself fortunate to have him for my eyecare provider.
