South Riding, VA |
Terrible experience with this doctor and the staff. Rude and unrmpathetic! Not recommended.
in Ashburn, Virginia |
The doctor is great. The front desk staff is great. We get reminder calls before appointments. The wait time is 5-10 mins. I would recommend this doctor to any person with an elderly parent needing assistance. Please be aware that there is a disgruntled ex-employee writing bad reviews about this doctor possibly here and on Vitals.com so please take that into account when researching and making the decision to try her out.

The woman in the office Shelly is horrid . Would never go there while she is employed.
