When I went for my eye exam with Dr. Doran, I needed to bring my 6 month old son with me as well. Dr. Doran and his staff were extremely kind and accommodating. Dr. Doran even gave my son a quick infant exam (which I didn't even know existed). I tend to ask a lot of questions, but Dr. Doran answered each one with patience, knowledge, and (often) humor. I found him to be professional, personable, and friendly. When it comes to finding doctors, I always look for knowledge and skill first (which Dr. Doran had) and demeanor / rapport second. So many eye doctors I've been to in the past just sit you down and go through the motions of the checkup. That was not Dr. Doran. I felt like he genuinely wanted to get to know me and was willing to share a little bit about himself as well. This is the type of doctor that remembers you when you come return in the future. I like that. My family and I will definitely be back and strongly recommend Dr. Doran to those looking for an eye doctor in NoVA.
