I saw Dr. Babcock 6 times when she was practicing at the office for National Spine and Pain Center in Arlington for neck & shoulder pain from May 6 through September 29 of 2017. After acupuncture "earrings" and then glucose type Prolotherapy with no x-rays or MRI beforehand, which did nothing, I said I wanted an MRI of my shoulder. It revealed 3 rotator cuff tears! and all she could say was, "Bummer."

I've had it. She is always at least an hour late without apology and rushes through exams. Last time I was there, she was 2 and half hours late. In the waiting room, a woman who'd been there as long as I had began sobbing and contorting her body in pain because she was so exhausted. In the exam rooms, they blast oldies music, like Shake Shake Señora and We're Not Gonna Take It and REFUSE to turn it down. I am extremely sensitive to light and sound, so this was basically a living hell for me.

Dr. Bobcock adjusted me three times, then sold me a prolotherapy injection, not covered by insurance, for $750.00, which she assured me would eliminate my pain for good. When my pain persisted, she then sent had her associate, Dr. Delisser do a facet injection. She adjusted me once more, but my back issues are the same. On two occasions, they scheduled a "follow-up" with someone who just asked if I needed drugs. Phone calls for nearly months to the doctor and she has never responded.

Worth the wait. She sometimes runs late, but is effective and really spends the time needed with each patient. She has been able to really help my daughter reduce her level of pain in just a few visits. Really happy with her progress so far.
Stephens City, VA |
On two occasions, my appt. was abruptly cancelled. I had to reschedule and wait again to see her despite being in pain. After waiting two hours to see her, a new nurse practitioner came in for the evaluation and then told me Dr. Babcock was unable to see me. Instead, thru this nurse, I was told to have an epidural with someone else I didn't know with no reason why. Two days later, she sent me an order in the mail for an unrelated radiology test, again no explanation or exam.
I have decided to no longer use this provider. The doctor is significantly late for all of my appointments. The longest I have waited was three hours, if you do not count my early morning appointment for which the doctor didn't show and no one called to cancel beforehand. Additionally, the doctor continues to advocate for experimental treatment despite the fact that I have expressed that I am not interested and it is not covered by my insurance.

I hate this doctor , she appear to have issues and is ALWAYS late .
Arlington, VA |
I am torn. I like the work that she has done but the office staff does not appear to be competent. In addition, she has been late several times and rescheduled several times. One time I was pulled into the exam room 45 minutes after my scheduled apt, where i waited another 2 hours with noone coming to check on me. I had to stop someone passing by several times to get an update. They should have told me that she was that late to begin with and let me decide to stay or come back.
