  • My mom has been going there most of her life. We tried several others before and felt the most comfortable with him.  He did not disappoint - the cataract surgery went amazingly.   We love Dr. Davis!

    - Andrew, Patient

  • I am usually with her for the appointments and can honestly say that Dr. Brown is thorough, professional, detailed, and polite. She always takes the time to explain what she has found during the course of her examination and gives us a detailed course of treatment for any issues. She has been, by far, the best Ophthalmologist that my Mom has ever seen.

    - David, Patient

  • “This has changed my life! Dr. Gross did an amazing job and I would recommend him to anyone I know. Thanks so much to everyone at Mid Atlantic Eye and Dr. Gross for his wonderful talents.”

    - Diana, Cataract Patient

  • "5 stars. So glad i found Dr.gross."

    - Lee, Patient

  • It's not always easy for a 5-star rating to be given accurately and sincerely unless the service being evaluated is clearly exceptional. Dr. Brown is one of those providers who qualifies.

    - Michael, Patient

  • "Excellent Job! Dr Snyder was the cataract surgeon I used a couple of years ago. He did an excellent job and there was a thorough prep and follow up."
