I went to Dr. DeCosimo yesterday for my first visit. It was for my annual, routine care. She was VERY helpful in helping me understand menopause. She is the first doctor I've been to in the past 5 years who agreed with me that the only way to determine if you are actually in menopause is to have my hormone levels checked. I was very appreciative of her no-nonsense demeanor and approach to my concerns.

She is knowledgeable in her field but leaves much to be desired in her bedside manner. She always seems to be in a rush - much like herding cows. She doesn't seem to be a good listener nor does her office seem to be very organized.

I went to Dr DeCosimo with a gyn concern that had been going on for years. She listened and then explained to me what was going on and what my options were. She was respectful of my decision and scheduled me for surgery. Surgery day was a breeze and she did an amazing job. Scaring is almost non existent. Follow up was great. I recommend fully!!
in Chantilly, VA |
Dr. DeCosimo delivered my daughter 13 years ago & it was an amazing experience. In 2009, we moved out of the area, but upon returning to VA this year, I went to see her for my annual exam. Dr. DeCosimo was just as friendly, knowledgeable and helpful as before. There was minimal wait time, her staff was very professional and the office was clean & comfortable. She had great suggestions for some issues I am dealing with. I would highly recommend her to family & friends.
in Chantilly, Va |
Her bed side manner was amazing and she was extremely patient and understanding!
in Alexandria, VA |
I first saw Dr. Decosimo about 2 years ago for menopause symptoms. Her advice at the time seemed to be what she would do , not what was best for me. She seemed to always be in a rush, and her manner was always like she had an answer to your question before you asked. Her response to questions was never timely and I always had to call to get her to respond to my concerns. Maybe my timing was wrong, but I switched to another doctor because the rapport was not there.
Only works 3 days a week.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
