TI have always had a first-class professional experience with Dr. Gross. This year, my appointment started a little later than usual, but there were more patients ahead of me than usual. The assistant's initial eye check and refraction went smoothly, and Dr. Gross took the time to give me a thorough exam, with an emphasis on checking for signs of glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic neuropathy. I'll see her again next year.

If you live in Frederick or Montgomery County's and need an Ophthalmologist or Optometrist you have only one decision to make. When do I set an appointment with the doctors at Central MD Eye Associates. I recently had a cataract removed and IOL implant completed. I was overwhelmed with the professionalism, honest advice, and staff. Dr. Thu Pham was extremely professional and translated medical terms to terms I could understand that lead me to make the best informed decisions. She made me feel very comfortable with moving forward with my procedure. She and the staff are very friendly and treated me as though I am their only patient. I am very impressed so far with my experience and will continue with this team for all my future eye needs.
