This was my first and last visit with Dr. Govil, whom I chose after reading different online reviews. She didn't bothered to listen to my complains completely, didn't even spend more than 10 minutes in the room. Left without even looking at my past reports, went to see another patient leaving me waiting for the prescription. I will definitely not recommend this doctor to anyone, the staff overbooked the weekend and the doctor did not have enough time to see all patients properly.

Office staff is very rude and unprofessional. Giggling and laughing in my treatment room like i wasnt there, also very bad care. Dr does not even call you personally when blood test results comeback. She leaves her incompetent staff members to do so, and when you ask a question you get a "let me call you back," never calls back. Doctor doesn't even spend five minutes with you. after so many bad experiences with her rude staff i've decided leave.

Reading at the previous review I got the same feeling. Their system is flawed. My wife took my kids to flu shots and they charged for not only flue shots but for office visit and child wellness checkup. After several calls from insurance calling them it took almost 3months to send corrected claim. I would say they are not professionals at all. Very disappointed with the service.

Nice clean office. Doctor was good, listened to me and spent time with me. The nurses were also nice. I plan to change her to my PCP. recommend to fellow patients looking for a good doctor.

I have been going to Dr Govil for the last 5 years. Even when she was at Nova Medical Group in Ashburn. I feel that she is really good at diagnosing the problem and fixing it. She also explains the problem in detail and such that I understand. Her staff was nice and the office was very clean.

Dr Govil's office staff need to learn to be professional to all her patients. Been going to her for a few years now, but I have had a couple of bad experiences with their billing. For vaccinations which are 100% covered by my insurance, they claim as 'office visit' and charge me a copay. It has happened more than a few times and am planning to change my primary physician.
We are sorry to see your complain. Our staff tries their best to take care of the billing issues. Unfortunately not all insurance plans are the same. Depending on each plan the patients have to pay a deductible/copay or coinsurance. If we charge something by mistake, we proactively either refund it ASAP or add it as a credit in your account once your EOB is received. Please contact us for any issues or payments that you might not already have received from us. Hope to take care of your health!
