Front desk/ Billing worst experience I ever had! Lily billing person is very rude and unorganized! When I called to scheduled a follow up the front desk would be totally lost they didn’t even know if I needed to come back or for what I needed to come back. They are all about the money! Believe all the reviews here google/yelp/zocdoc! Never going back to that office!

BELIEVE HIS AWFUL REVIEWS! he is all about money, unprofessional staffs including himself. This office is very sketchy states "no one"handles billing department to answer questions about your bills. asking patients to pay $500-750 for ultrasound upfront, not worth of your time OR money!!!

I decided to leave a review solely on my opinion because I do read reviews myself and rely on them. Will start with reception ladies who were very easy going and friendly. Plus it was breezy to schedule appointment. What actually impressed me the most - was clean office/room and restroom (Herndon location). I have to say I was at other ob gyn's offices and this one by far the most clean one I saw. The doctor was really attentive, spend good amount of time with me, he also answered all my questio

I made an appointment with Dr. Pei but wasn't able to see him, as the clinic staff were very rude, impatient and unprofessional. Just because I haven't meet my insurance deductible they asked me to bring cash or paycheck with the amount of 500+ dollars (average pregnancy ultrasound cost which should be around 250) before I go to see him. I asked many friends of mine and none of them have ever encounted such a situation in the U.S.

The doctor is all about the money. He kept telling me that my insurance policy is bad as he can only get half money comparing to other insurance policies. To be honest, I didn't know what that means and I don't care. When it comes to the bill, for the same procedure, my previous OB charged me around $400($150 for doctor visit and $250 for ultrasound). He charged me $1000, for first time visitor and two ultrasounds. One of the ultrasounds is trans vagina, which he never did during the visit.
