Annandale VA |
I just had another wonderful checkup with Dr Camilla Hersh, who has been my gynecologist since 2008. She is highly competent, efficient, thorough, kind, and upbeat. I had other gynecologists in the past, but I like Dr Hersh the best because of her aforementioned qualities and also because she is female, a preference of mine. I also like her new office on Woodburn Road across from Fairfax Hospital which is very convenient for me. In addition, her staff members are helpful and courteous.

I have been seeing Dr. Hersh for many years and have had a wonderful experience with her. She was also my mom's doctor when my mom was an older woman. Dr.Hersh is very caring and has always given me special attention. I would definitely recommend her.

Dr. Hersh is one of the best doctors I've ever seen. She takes the time to get to know you and listen to you and helps you really understand what's going on with your health. She is incredibly knowledgeable and is honest in her approach while remaining positive. I have always had confidence in her recommendations. Her and her staff make you feel welcome and comfortable, and I've always enjoyed going to their offices. They really care about the patient and are super helpful. Highly recommended!

I have had such a horrible experience in trying to get appointments to see this doctor. She was very rude to me when I tried to express my concern, she was so dismissive and acted like she was n a huge hurry and immediately suggested I go to another practice. I have submitted a official compliant as she did not fulfill her obligation as a doctor to ensure the issues I initially came to see her about was resolved. I was even told that her other patient had more priority than me!

Made an appointment as a new patient, only to be rescheduled then CANCELLED ONE HOUR before the appointment. (They called as I was driving to the office!!!!). She may be a good doctor, but I would never reconsider this provider. The unprofessional, unapologetic and callous attitude of their office staff is almost laughable. If you can't show respect for your patients how do you expect them to trust you with their health?!!

I saw Lynn Chance, MSN, WHNP her physicians assistant and she was absolutely great. Terrific bed side manner and spent a lot of time with me. The staff was so nice from start to finish. They were able to get me in for a visit quickly. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.
in Vienna, VA |
Called for first time patient appointment. Waited 1 month for the scheduled appointment, called 1 week prior to verify time and was told that the appointment was cancelled (i was never notified) and I can be rescheduled for 1 month later. I had to repeat 4 times that I do not want to see another physician which clearly seemed to be pushed on me. It appears that if I did not call to verify I would show up for appointment only to be accomodated with another physician.

Dr. Hersh was kind, professional, and thorough. Lovely bedside manner. Took the time to answer all my questions. Very impressed.
