Heart Surgery reviews in Falls Church

    Virginia Heart
    This appointment went well, but it was with the pacemaker manufacturer, not the  doctor.  It takes 3-4 months to get to see an actual doctor.  Mine is only in one morning a week in this office.  They are very understaffed, rude.  The rudest people are the triage and doctors' nurses who seem annoyed that you would call in with a question.  The answer I get time and time again is "we do hundreds of these things."  Ok, well I have only been through it once.    They are great until you get your surgery, then they can't be bothered.  I've pressed them a couple times because I was so concerned and I finally got into see a PA, who by the way, is WONDERFUL.  She is actually the one who discovered my problem, not the doctor.
    So the nurse tells me, well, she has more time to listen.  Excuse me?
    I have NO problem with my doctor.  He is great.  However, I would not give the staff in this office much of a positive rating.  Maybe things are better at their other locations.  I'd try them first.  Also, I see Heart Care of Virginia has fantastic ratings.  Maybe you should try there.....

    Virginia Heart
    I've seen him approximately 8 times in the office. Virginia Heart asked that patients arrive 15 min prior to appointment, however doctors never seem to be on time. After being placed in exam room, I'd wait over 90 minutes before the doctor comes in. Nurse practitioner name Eva is really rude very unprofessional, I was experiencing medication problems which was causing life threatening system and was taken off medication, regardless of what evidence and documentation stated she insisted that symptoms I was having were impossible and untrue that I had to take that medicine or i could not be treated or be seen if I didn't take it. Instead of having the doctor re-evaluate the issues she asked me what do I plan to do or who would I see for treatment. When calling to speak to a doctor nurses will tell me I wasn't haven't the symptoms, problems and asked how do I know it was the medication causing the reactions. They also will tell me they will let the doctor know and call right back, however it would be 8 -9 hours later after there business hours. I was left suffering and waiting an entire day. Staffing refuses to schedule you between appointments with doctor if you're sick and need to be seen even if an error in scheduling is on their behalf. The only time communication is between doctor and patients is during scheduled office visits. Extremely difficult to get doctor dictations from office visits or documentation sent to other doctors. When going to this doctor or office be sure to have a book or game to keep you busy.

    I had a stress test and the staff was wonderful. Very kind and caring, as well as willing to take time and answer questions or make sure I was doing ok during the test. I would definitely use this group again.

    Virginia Heart
    dicines while in the hopital and my viatls were normalI was admitted to the Virginia Hospital Center after passing out on February 2, 2012. I came under the care of 3 specialties: (1) a nerve guy who performed 2 tests and ruled out that I had a stroke; (2) Internal Medicine who performed blood tests and monitored my vitals including blood lab work and blood pressure and came up with a probable cause, and (3) Virginia Health who were trying to find out if it was a heart/artery problem. The latter performed 3 tests. Test One was a sonogram of the neck and Test Two a sonogram of my heart. Both of these tests were negative--no clogged arteries. I was scheduled for an EP Study that enters the large vein where the leg joins the torso, sends a tube up into my heart and measures the electrical impulses that determine your heart rate (low, normal, or high). This test turned out to be negative--all normal. Before this test it was determined the probable cause of my passing out was over-medicated blood pressure medicine with a rapid loss of weight (212 to 188 pound since Nov 15, 2011). Blood tests and blood pressure readings confirmed this as I was taken off my 2 high blood pressure medicines. I signed a consent form in the ward for the EP study.

    Outside the operating room, Dr. James Duc of Virginia Heart ambushed me with another consent form. He stated I had 3 options. If the heart rate was low, he would put in a pacemaker, if high they would prescribe medicines to reduce it. If normal,(which it was) they would insert a monitor under my skin to keep track of my heart rate. He said basically I was going to get a pacemaker (I would have been okay with that if my rate was low) or a monitor. The tunnel vision of this group did not acknowledge the true cause of my passing out. He badgered me with incomplete options and in a weak moment I said yes. If the consent form was given to me in the ward with all options on the table, I would have refused the monitor device.

    Rhee, Dr. John W
    He was excellent. He saved my life which was obviously impressive, but also the surgery he performed was just excellent. When I compare what I had done to other people, my surgery was superior. My scar is minimal; he just made a tiny slit above my knee to harvest the artery like it was no problem. His bedside manner is fantastic. He does a number of these surgeries, he is an expert in it, and he exudes a calm, quiet confidence that is just amazing. When you are in that condition, you don���t really want a nervous doctor. His expertise is bar none and he takes the time to answer every last question. He has about five different offices but I saw him at the Alexandria hospital. The people there were very nice, friendly, and helpful. His PA was excellent, checked out any problems that may occur, answered my questions, and did a great job. I would be surprised if I needed another surgery, but I would use Dr. Rhee if I needed one.

    Lefrak, Dr. Edward
    He is an excellent surgeon, and he is known all over. When you are in a really bad situation, you actually don?t need a person with a beaming personality - you just need someone who is good. Dr. LeFrac may not be totally friendly - and he is known for that and for being all business and all medicine, and stand-offish - but he is excellent. I?d rather be in his hands than in the hands of someone who has a great personality but is not that good. The people at the hospital were great, and they took my father in right away.
