Welcome to our Practice

We welcome you to the office of Marshall P. Keys MD. This practice is dedicated to assuring that your family receives the most comprehensive and up-to-date eye care available. Although there is a lot of information on this website, we encourage you to call the office and speak to us about any matter of concern.

Since each one of our patients has individual needs and preferences, we will make every effort to accomodate them.

Our entire staff operates as a team, and we take pride in each staff member’s training and capabilities. We are all parents that enjoy working with children and adolescents. Equally important, we have all been patients at one time or another and know what is going on in the medical community. Hopefully, our personalized approach is appropriate for your family, but if not we would like to hear your suggestions. Our ultimate goal, as a team, is to treat each patient just as we would like to be treated ourselves.

Office Hours

The office is open Monday through Friday, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. The first appointment of the day is at 8:20 am and the last scheduled complete eye exam is at 3:45. A thorough eye exam usually takes 1 to 1½ hours to complete. Part of that time includes waiting for pupils to dilate.

We make every effort to see our patients on time and keep waiting to a minimum. We realize that children become restless if there is a delay. Occasionally, an unscheduled emergency occurs which interrupts our schedule. We are very respectful of our patients’ time. When emergencies arise, every effort will be made to inform you of any delays in a timely manner. We appreciate your understanding, and know you would want our immediate attention if your child needed emergency care.

All medical office schedules depend on patients arriving on time for their appointments. Please allow enough travel time, keeping in mind weather and traffic conditions in the busy Rockville Pike area. If you are going to be delayed, please call us.
