The Retina Group of Washington Experience
The Retina Group of Washington (RGW) is one of the largest and most highly respected retinal and macular practices in the country. The collective resume of our renowned and highly trained physicians, as well as the local community atmosphere we create in each of our conveniently located offices, afford patients a unique dual experience. They receive unparalleled professional care from a doctor whose medical expertise is enhanced by his/her ability to tap into the extensive resources and knowledge base of the entire RGW practice when treating retinal, vitreous and macular diseases. And each of our physicians is dedicated to his/her own individual office, facilitating a "small practice" feel and extending the highest level of personal service that patients find comforting and convenient.
It is for these reasons among others that patients have trusted their retinal and macular care to the doctors of RGW since the practice opened in 1982. We have a terrific track record for attracting the best and brightest physicians, allowing them to rank among the national leaders in conducting clinical research and to provide top caliber teaching and training to residents and fellows.
We hope you'll see fit to find out more about our practice by clicking here.
What truly distinguishes RGW is the vast experience of the retinal physicians and surgeons who practice here. The broad breadth of experiences and training allows patients to benefit from the regular and sustained collaboration the RGW physicians have with each other.
