I hope Dr. B does not leave the Capital Hill, DC area. I don't know what I would do if he left; he and his entire staff are wonderful. If you need an eye doctor, make an appointment to see him; you will not regret it. Excellent Doctor and wonderful person. He is my and my husband's eye 'doc' for life!!
I have always wore glasses and upon being diagnosed with diabetics my primary care physician recommended Dr. Butrus. After years of being a patient , I was informed I had cataracts in both eyes and Dr. Butrus recommended Lasik surgery. I had the surgery to remove the cataracts and now my vision is 20/30 (excellent job). I only wear glasses for reading, this was the best decision I could make. I would recommend Dr. Butrus and his staff if you are looking for an excellent ophthalmology. Wonderful doctor and staff.
