I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Iglesia, her practice group, and the MedStar Surgery Center. Dr. Iglesia is kind, compassionate, and a true expert in her field. Her staff could not be kinder. Dr. Iglesia answered all of my questions, as did my OR nurse, anesthesiologist, and even the fellow! I knew I was in good hands with them all. I have tremendous trust in Dr. Iglesia and would recommend her to anyone looking for the best care possible.
Very patient orientated. Great ability to put patients at ease with her upbeat personality. Listens to concerns and provides solutions that fit your needs. Skilled with the most current technology including robotic laparoscopy. My surgery and recovery went just as described. I am now 8 weeks out and released from care until my 1 year visit. She felt like a friend and I will miss her.

This doctor officially made me loose faith in local pelvic pain specialists and travel way out of state. Good luck trying to get her to listen to your problem. I had to practically yell over her and even then I barely succeeded. I came in with a picture perfect example of vestibulitis and got sent home and told that everything is looking fine and it is not in fact what I think it is. Took driving 3 hours to another state to get confirmation for all of my suspicions by a qualified doctor.

Have never had such a horrible experience simply trying to make an appt. After being hung up on the first time, was treated in such a rude way by the call center employee, Latoya. First time I have ever written a review. It took 2o minutes to get a person, only to be treated with such disrespect. If the office can not make appointments efficiently what does that say about the overall operations.

I had the good fortune to have Dr Iglesias recommended to me by two different Ob Gyn MD's for my urogynecologic repairs . In my research I learned that Dr Iglesia is highly regarded for her surgical expertise and study and research in this field. . Before surgery Dr IGlesia was willing to spend time explaining in great detail the procedure that would best meet my needs. I have recently recovered from my surgery and found Dr iglesia to be not only competent but very caring as well

I live in SC. Heard about Dr. Iglesia from my sister that has worked with her in the operating room. My 1st visit was very pleasant, thorough and informative. In consideration of me living out of town my procedure was scheduled right away. The day of the procedure was the best experience I've had in this setting. Everyone was wonderful from walking in the door to walking out. Dr. Iglesia and her staff made me feel very comfortable and secure. The end results was more than I expected.

She is an expert in her field! She is a meticulous surgeon and she truly cares about you, the patient! If you need this kind of evaluation and/or surgery, she is the doctor to see! I couldn't be more satisfied with my surgical outcome and the care I received.
in Hagerstown, MD |
Dr Iglesia is wonderful, friendly doctor that I have think the world of. She spoke frankly to me about my issues and answered my questions in a way that I could understand easily. I had no problem with my surgery and the hospital stay a Medstar Washington Hospital Center was very calming. The staff were patient and kind. The students that I have met with Dr Iglesia have always been knowledgeable and very eager to help in any way they can.
in Bethesda, MD |
Dr iglesia is brilliant, effective and caring. She performed successful surgery on me and solved my problems. I continue to see hef and admire her devotion to her patients, training of medical students, interest in new therapies and research. She is a wonderful, competent physician.
in Martinsburg, WV |
Dr. Iglesia offers excellent bedside manners that accompany her expertise in the pelvic floor. She is excellent and well-worth the 1 1/2 hour drive to her office in Rockville, MD.
in Washington, DC |
Dr. Iglesia is by far the best in class! She's extremely knowledgeable, the consummate professional, and gives you truth! I highly recommend her! I highly recommend her and you won't be disappointed!
in Upper Marlboro, MD |
I have been a patient for over ten years and have sent so many people to her from my church who also have had nothing but excellent things to say about her. The one thing I can share is that you will NEVER go wrong seeing Dr. Iglesia!
in Potomac, MD |
Stay aware from this doctor!! She talked constantly during the 5 or 10 minutes she was ever saw me and never seemed to listen to my symptoms. She had already decided I needed surgery and I stupidly agreed to go forward. It was a nightmare. I think my surgery was done by her students, not her. I have gone back multiple time complaining of pain and incontinence and she has no answers and just says it sometimes happens after surgery. Wish I had listened to my gut and done more research.
