I am not sure if this place has real *DOCTORS*. Read on… While getting a routine update on eyeglass prescription, I had few small concerns. I wear eyeglasses ( - 2.25 ) forever, I am now 40. The optometrist referred me here as I wanted to ensure that everything is normal with my eyes. Enter Retina Associates. After filling a few forms, I was tended to by an elderly nurse. The nurse proceeded to document my medical history. I am NOT on any medication, but the nurse did insist (see below) and documented that I am on 325 mg Tylenol prescription. She said that "they" will like this because documenting prescription keeps the computers happy. Odd. I did not understand this logic. Immediately after the reading exam, I was told that the doctor had decided to "inject dye in my bloodstream" as this will take better pictures. It seemed to me that this was an elevated/enhanced level of testing based on my condition. I was told that using the dye was the Doctor’s opinion. Odd again. What was the basis for this opinion? I had yet to see any doctor. Nobody had even asked for any symptoms yet. As I am not a doctor, I did not know whether this dye-test was a routine for every patient or not; but I definitely got the feeling that injecting the dye was an "optional" and/or "enhanced" test; and based on my *condition*, it was the doctor’s recommendation that we do this. When will I see the doctor? The nurse gave me some eye numbing drop. Took eye pressure. I was then given 2 or 3 different types of eye drops to dilate my eyes. After a few minutes in the lobby, my pupils were wide open. I was then taken to the "lab-room" where some more eye testing was done. I had to look at some fancy gadgets and stare at a cross inside fancy equipment. Some eye pictures were taken. Then my eyes were photographed and *omfg* did those lights hurt with the dilated eyes. Some dye was then injected in my blood via an iv on my right arm. More photographs! After 25 odd BRIGHT flashes, all I could see was ... well … all went dark for a few minutes. Will I see the doctor now? Who is my doctor? The fancy brochure had so many names and resumes. I was taken to another room. Waited for another 5 minutes. Enter Dr. Coung D. Vu. He immediately went onto shining a few more bright lights into my eyes. Finally, the DOCTOR was here, YAY! Someone who could tell me why (1) Right eye waters more; (2) Is laser for me; and (3) Overall healthy eyes? Dr. Vu told me that there is some buildup under my cornea, but it’s normal for Asian people and nothing to worry about. I was told that this sort of exam is very helpful in keeping track of progress of my eyes and that he recommends that I do this exam every year to make sure my eyes remain healthy and any problems could be detected early on. As for my questions? Well, Dr. Vu either did not understand my questions, or he did not know the answers; or simply could not care less on why I was really there. I mean, the enhanced dye exam was already done and he had already looked over at the report. I was re-told about the importance and the benefits of this annual eye exam. As far as he was concerned, my appointment was over. It took him less than 3 minutes of actual patient time to address me as a patient. My questions...? Well maybe I could try again next year? Overall the experience was that of being processed over a conveyor belt. A fancy and modern looking conveyor belt, but a conveyor belt nonetheless. The only reason I am generously giving a 2-star rating is because the staff was so good. The so called “eye *DOCTOR*” interaction ... well not so good. Next time, I am definitely going to ask around to see if there is an eye doctor who will see and talk to me BEFORE ordering to inject dye in my bloodstream. Will the doctor take the time to give me good answers my QUESTIONS. And as for doing this annually? Maybe, you guys will have to address my concerns or at least pretend to give a crap. If you are just going to torture my eyes to bill my insurance, I dunno.

BEWARE! IF YOU ARE A PARTY OF 20+! They first limited our menu choice (we are only 24 people) and then did a price gouging of 25% over the menu and added further extra in gratuity on top while making reservations. When we pointed out that their listed menu has better dishes for lower price, they got annoyed and threaten to NOT SEAT US if we showed up as walk-ins. Do yourself a favor, walk across the street to the bigger, brighter and courteous fancy restaurant. Good seafood maybe, but ABSOLUTELY CLUELESS AND IDIOTIC. If this were New York city, these guys would be SO OUT OF BUSINESS.

Dr. Srun is an amazing doctor. He has a mannerism about him to immediately relax you and feel confident to ask him any questions. He listened very carefully about all my concerns and provided great answers and pointed to resources where I could find more info. He even referred me to external clinics for further concerns. Dr. Srun is extremely competent, diligent and caring. I would have given him 6 stars if Google allowed me. If you are looking for an eye doc, do yourself a favor and call his office. I am shifting my entire family here and recommending him to friends.

WORST PLACE EVER. Absolutely 3rd class service! They kept my car for 4 months. FOUR F***ING months. After 2 months, they actually tried to pass on the car back to me without fixing it. OH YES, they got paid by the insurance company alright, but they just forgot to fix the car. Within 2 minutes of driving, it was obvious that the car was pulling to the right. When I called to complaint, the front desk lady tried to explain it away as a tire pressure problem. When I tried to escalate the problem with the repair agent, he first denied the problem and then tried to explain it as a “temporary issue due to a new tire.” Yeah RIGHT! He then give me an alignment spec sheet, showing a bunch of number to prove that he was right. The printed out specs showed that the alignment was NOT within specifications, thank God I took the time to understand the numbers. WHAT A SCAM, the repair specialist did not know how to understand the computer diagnostics printout! I had to get my insurance company (State Farm) involved. State Farm told them that they needed to ACTUALLY FIX THE PROBLEM, not just collect money and then PRETEND otherwise. For the next 2 months, whenever I called, the repair agent had “just stepped out for lunch”; was “with a customer”; or “went home early.” 2 more months later, count it, TWO MORE F***ING MONTHS later, they finally fixed it. Then they tried to tell me what a great big success this whole operation was, because they “went out of their way” to take the car to another dealership and got it fixed. F*** YOU GUYS! I should have known from the start. I should have gone to another dealership to begin with. What a bunch of nitwits!

NOTE: I went to the Silver Spring location. I am not sure if this place has real *DOCTORS*. Read on… During a routine eye exam, I had few small concerns.
