    Dr. Joanne Herrman, M.D., P.C.
    Long story short, do not see this doctor. Especially if you have anxiety or any kind of traumaDr. Herrman is missing even a shred of compassion. I���ve seen her since we moved to Fairfax (4 yrs ago) and was never a fan, but it wasn���t worth switching. I struggle with GYN exams, and I explained when we first met that I had a trauma history and this was really difficult and anxiety provoking for me. So���went for my pap smear, 1.5 years late because it���s challenging for me. When I said I was anxious and that it was hard to be there, her comment was, well, you don���t have to be here, you can just leave. She didn't even make a pretense at politeness. Since I was already there and undressed, I stayed. She insisted on doing a breast exam when I was in stirrups. There was no table that slid out, and I asked to sit up, because I find those things uncomfortable, and she asked why I���d want to move (!) actually told me that there should be no difference between sitting up and being in stirrups. Right. So we did what she wanted, of course, and by this point, I was uncomfortable, upset and all sorts of overwhelmed and anxious. I came home, looked online for a new GYN, and didn���t think about it again. Until I got a letter from her office, saying she was ���forced��� to decline to provide professional assistance because of the ���problem between doctor and patient���. In other words, even though I explicitly told her I had a trauma history and that this exam was all sorts of anxiety provoking, my expression of anxiety and my discomfort with stirrups made her so uncomfortable needed to formally decline to provide care. Wow. Just wow. Many people have anxiety and trauma. A shred of human decency goes a long way. Someone needs to retire. It would be a great kindness.

    Sleep Centers of Northern Virginia
    Not good! I have had two Sleep Studies in the past, soI am qualified to compare and contrast services. Directions to the office was indifferent ?important because the area is not at all well lit and there was some difficultyin finding the place at the 9:30 PM appointment time. The facility itself, while clean, was just shabby. The furniture was minimal, no place to hangyour clothes. The furniture that wasthere was beat up and looked like it had come there after hard use and thendiscarded at a local thrift shop. Everypicture in the place was askew. Lightingin the bedroom where the sleep study was conducted was either extremely bright(undimmable) fluorescent's in the ceiling, or a 40 watt bulb in a table lamp(very difficult to impossible to read by), sheets were clean but stained,bathroom had rubber base boards falling down, and holes and different coloredpaint where a previous toilet roll holder had been. There was no shower (most places like thisend the sleep study at 05:00 so patients can go from the Sleep Study to work ?but with no shower the patient is still encumbered with goo on their faces andhair to hold the sensors. Both previousSleep Study locations had showers. I wasscheduled to go to sleep at 11:00 PM but I was tired and sleepy and opted to goa bit early at 10:45. The technician hadme sit in a chair and he began to apply the sensors ? he did not tell me whathe was doing (always a good idea for a health practitioner to do this ? and Iwas taken aback when he began pushing something into my nose (very ticklish andSURPRISED/SHOCKED). I had neverencountered this before. I found, oncontrast to previous occasions, that the placement of the sensors was veryuncomfortable ? especially those placed on my skull behind my ears (on the mastoid process). So far the entire experience was one of indifference? the facility and the technician. Bynow I was wide awake, uncomfortable from the placement of some of the sensors ?which resulted in my not being able to go to sleep for over two hours. The Technician had told me that I would sleepinitially without CPAP support and that half way through he would awaken me andI would sleep the last half with CPAP support. At 4:00 AM I awoke to use the bathroom which required the Technician todisconnect the control box which I carried to the bathroom. Upon getting back in bed the Tech began toleave and I asked if he was not going to give me CPAP support. He replied,?No?. I asked him why not. He replied, ?Doctor?s Orders.? This seemed to contradict what he had told mebefore and was dismissive and fit with the over indifference I felt exuded thispractice. I was unable to get back tosleep before he came in at 05:00 to send me on my way. I have been detailed in this review tosupport my opinion about the indifferent manner of this practice and to give themthe benefit of details should they actually care.

    Porvaznik, Dr. Michael J.
    I didn't see any real change in my symptoms after 5-6 visits, he was extremely expensive, and I might have given it a try for longer, but his lateness was just utterly inexcusable. At my last visit, I saw him right before his staff brought my to the room, and then I heard him speaking in the lobby to one of the staff...for the next 50 minutes while I waited. I totally understand doctors running a bit late, but keeping a client late so he can catch up with staff is just not acceptable behavior. He was generally about 30 minutes late to other appointments, but that (without any apology or explanation) was too much for me.

    Otolaryngology Associates Pc
    The physician offered no solution. They ran multiple tests and came up with nothing. They also denied my son's request for a nasal surgery after a previous otolaryngologist stated that he needed corrective surgery. He continues to have the same problem for which we sought treatment. They are of no help whatsoever.

    Fairfax Family Practice
    Dr. Hermes is great. She always seems to be cheerful, takes her time finding out what your problem is and examining you. She  has been my doctor for many years and i have been with Fairfax Family Practice for almost 20 years. A year or so ago they opened a walk in clinic which also helps if you have something that needs to be seen right away and you can't wait for an appoinment. I used it for a deep splinter on the bottom of my foot, and epigastric pain from a hiatal hernia.
    Everyone is professional and I always get good care.

    I see two doctors regularly since I have arrhythmia. Dr. Ramakrishna
    sees me every 6 months to monitor my cardiac wellness and Dr McSwain
    sees me every year to do an EKG and review my arrhythmia status. Both
    are professional, friendly and easy to talk to. They answer all of your
    questions and give excellent care. Dr. McSwain performed a cardiac
    abblation on me 12 years ago to correct a severe flutter that could have
    taken my life. I am grateful for his skills.

    Eye Plastic Associates PC
    The procedure went beautifully. I looked a little scary for a couple of weeks, but progressed quickly to looking great and having much better peripheral vision. The eyes look identical - very important post-surgical outcome!. Doctor Scott follows you closely for the first couple of months post op, and encouraged me to call or come in more often if I had any concerns (which I haven't). I am in my 60s and look at least ten years younger now! Several friends have asked for his name and number; I provided these with zero reservation. My family has previous experience with Doctor Scott for traditional medical care of the eyes including surgery; we were very satisfied with that outcome. In the office you are taken to a treatment room promptly, but a couple of times it was a while before even the nurse/ technician came in (maybe 20 minutes). If you are twitchy and nervous like me, take a book!

    Side note: Not fond of the hospital facility where Doctor Scott performed my surgery. It seemed to be change of shift time when I was in recovery. They pushed me what I considered to be way too hard to wake up and get out! Sent me unattended in to the bathroom, something I barely remember then put me in me into a wheelchair to leave right after that. I have had surgery before and don't recall ever being that unbalanced and wobbly when I was sent out. The pre-op staff was fine and they are way more important. Nonetheless, I failed to mention this to Doctor Scott and should have done so.

    Sedghi, Dr. Roya
    She's very responsive, focused, attentive and does a very good job. She's a 'nazi' but very good. A 'nazi' in that she doesn't take any gap for anything. She holds you to the line -so to speak, which is very good. She is very thorough.

    Osvaldo Anez MD,FACS
    This practice is unprofessional. Patients must go through many preliminary tests to qualify them for the procedure. Obviously this is necessary to rule out and other conditions that would make you unsuitable for the surgery. One of the indicators that I had the wrong surgeon was the bariatric class at the hospital, where everyone else in the group had a different surgeon and they seemed to have much more information that I had received from Dr. Anez or his office. I called 6 days before my surgery because I had not heard from them in quite a while. I was told that my surgery was cancelled because he would not be back in town. I had made arrangements for my sister-in-law to fly in to help me with my 2 kids, and had arranged several neighbors to help me with many other things (walking the dog, etc). They did not seem to care, and tried to claim that they had called me to tell me this. They had not. I offered to print my home and cell phone records to prove to them that they had not called me, but of course, they didn't want that. I did not want to reschedule my surgery if a doctor's office was willing to lie to me and allow me to be scheduled on a date that had any chance that the doctor would not be able to be there. I was really upset since this a life changing surgery and I was not a patient of their office to have a hangnail removed or some minor problem. There are other surgeons with experience and professionalism, and I would advise seeking them out instead of this practice.
