Patient Comments (7)
Winchester, VA |
I had been looking for answers for four years when I landed in Dr. G's office. By my second appointment I finally knew what was wrong and was able to get on a treatment regimen that has greatly improved my quality of life.
Olney, MD |
Dr. Gospodinoff treated my shoulder pain. She was very skilled at performing a steroid injection and the results were great. I was very impressed with her excellent bedside manner and clinical skill.
District Heights, MD |
I have been a patient of Dr. G's for five years, and I am not looking for a new practice. Over the past year there has been a huge breakdown in communication and access. I was in the ER, the after hours service refused to take a message multiple times, and it took almost a week to get a call back. I mentioned it to everyone including Dr. G and no one cared.

I have been seeing Dr. G for several years now. I find her to be very knowledgeable and understanding. We have worked thru a number of complicated issues and I feel confident we are on the right track. She always takes the time to explain things and lets me manage my care as I feel comfortable.

The office administration and follow-up for prescriptions is the worst I've ever experienced. I've seen the doctor twice and she has prescribed medication, but I have had to call the office repeatedly in order to get the prescriptions. Something is really wrong in this practice.
Reston, VA |
I have been going to Dr. Gospodinoff for a few years now and she has always been very helpful and understanding.
Staff is unfriendly and inattentive. I waited over an hour past my appointment to be seen and staff, nurses to Doctor herself was unapologetic about it. I didn't get my results until two days after they were in and only because I called them. The doctors notes stated that certain counts went one direction, so therefore do this. I told the nurse that this was incorrect as my counts had definitely gone the other direction so I need new instructions. Still waiting for them...
