Dr. Byrnes has been my Retina Ophthalmologist since February 28, 2020. From this first appointment with him, I observed his positive rapport with me, which, immediately set me at ease. So, firstly, I would like to give kudos to RGW for having Dr. Byrnes on your staff. Upon entering procedure room to be seated for Dr. Byrnes, I was extremely fearful, anxious, and panicky. As I waited only for very few minutes, I started to panic more, knowing that I am going to get an injection to the back of my eye. But, gladly, the fears and panicking started to dissipate the instant Dr. Byrnes entered the procedure room with a warm smile and friendly rapport. I told him how fearful and nervous I was about the hurtful experience I was about to experience. He comforted me even more, by assuring me that he is going to numb me again, and described the other three steps he will do to take care of me and to prevent me from feeling any pain. He did what he promised, like an exemplary and compassionate professional. Thoughtfully, he named each, and again, explained the purpose of each during the process. I had no pains! Up to date, he is my favorite friend and a caring Retina Ophthalmologist. He "treats me the way he would like to be treated." -I endure no fears, no pains, no anxiety, and no panicking. If asked, I would highly recommend him.

I saw Dr. Byrnes, and his associate, Dr. Kevin Broderick, on Sunday, October 27, to treat a serious eye infection. I was so impressed with the selfless willingness of these highly skilled doctors to see me, an out-of-town visitor, on an emergency basis. I am very grateful for the expert care I received and would recommend Drs. Byrnes and Broderick unreservedly.

Dr. Byrnes is an incredible eye specialist. He has treated me for.age-related macular degeneration for over 5 years and so far so good. I trust him completely. Previous, I was treated by Dr. Reginald Sanders in Chevy Chase office - since January 2004, which is when it was discovered that I had this eye disease. I have always received excellent care from the Retina Eye Clinic of Washington, DC.

On time. Very efficient operation. Good exchange of info on status and possible changes that could occur with my condition...but are not expected. First doctor that stated odds to worst case scenario. Stated as 1 in 5000 puts me at ease. Wasn’t particularly concerned given all perilous checks but it is now a bit more understandable to me. I was advised to follow up with another check in a year and I intend to do so.

Sep 25, 2019
Love the new waiting area. Dr. Byrnes and staff did a wonderful job on my six months check up. Thank You
