RGW’s Drs. Byrnes, Chun, Garfinkel and Osman Named
Virginia Living’s Top Ophthalmologists of 2019; 45 Top Doctor Honors for RGW Since 2010

Posted in Announcements

The Retina Group of Washington (RGW) is proud to announce that, over the past nine years, our ophthalmologists have consistently been named to the prestigious Top Doctor lists published by Washingtonian and Virginia Living magazines. The latest RGW physicians to receive this honor are Dr. Gordon A. Byrnes, Dr. Dal W. Chun, Dr. Richard A. Garfinkel and Dr. Michael H. Osman, each recently named to Virginia Living’s 2019 Top Doctors list.

The Top Doctor lists, widely regarded as go-to resources for the best healthcare in the area, are compiled based on nominations by over 13,000 DC, Maryland and Virginia physicians.

“The fact that Top Doctor honorees are selected by their professional peers throughout the area is especially meaningful, as it signifies that other practicing physicians in our specialty recognize RGW’s expertise and exceptional patient care,” said Dr. Byrnes. “I speak on behalf of Drs. Chun, Garfinkel and Osman when I say that we are extremely honored to receive this year’s accolade from Virginia Living, and join the impressive roster of previous RGW Top Doctor designees.”
