I saw Dr Hafner for 10 years and she was always ok. Not great, not terrible. Recently, I went for my annual, shared an observation I'd made over the last few months (which ended up being a disorder) and they charged me $40, even though annual is preventative and $0. Front desk said it would have been $0 if they hadn't found something. So If I'm healthy, $0. If I'm sick, $40. They penalize sick people! They also had me come back in after seeing a specialist for absolutely no reason! Another $40.

I felt like the only answer I got from Dr. Hafner was I don't know. She seemed unwilling to help me with basic fertility issues and after two surgeries lots of stress and money, we asked if the polyp removals would help in fertility and she said no. I went to her because infertility was on her list of specialties. Besides that the nurse who contacted me didn't know anything about the results she would give. She told me I had adenomyosis and I received no explanation As to what it was. Scary.

Dr. Hafner says...

Dr. Nancy Hafner, a board-certified gynecologist, is a native New Englander and grew up in Lexington, Massachusetts. Deciding to focus solely on women's health and gynecology, she joined Fairfax Gynecology Group in 1997. Her areas of expertise include menopause, contraception, fibroids, adolescent care, vulvar disorders, abnormal pap smears, and endometriosis.

Dr. Hafner completed her medical education at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, after which she pursued a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the George Washington University Hospital.

Dr. Hafner met her husband, Gordon, in the med school library at GW, have been married for 26 years, and have two daughters.  Both are graduates of Langley High School—one is going to law school and the other to college in the fall.

Her free time for many years was spent as a soccer mom (both of her girls have played high-level competitive soccer).  She was the team manager for many years, but as an empty nester in the fall, she will be spending more time exercising, gardening, cooking, sewing, and collecting antique quilts.
