Dr. Anne Kisthardt, MD

OB-GYN

Professional statement

Dr. Kisthardt returns to Physicians and Midwives after an 8 year hiatus. She grew up in a small town in northeast Pennsylvania, and after having her first child in 2005 she moved to PA to be closer to her parents. While there, she continued to practice full scope Ob/Gyn. But after several years of her husband continuing to commute for his IT job to the D.C. area, they happily chose to return to their beloved Alexandria and P&M. Dr. Kisthardt initially moved to Alexandria in 1998 after completing her residency training in Ob/Gyn at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia. This was preceeded by earning her medcal doctorate at Jefferson Medical College and her Bachelor of Science from Ursinus College. She is board certified and enjoys all aspects of full scope Obstetrics and Gynecolgic care. She will be a part time member of the practice. She loves to hike with her family (which now also includes a daughter born in PA) and engage in any physical fitness activity she can, as well as cramming for the next book for her book club. She is just thrilled to be back and honored to serve the community once again.

I will definitely be returning! I had a lot of paperwork to fill out as a new patient, but I was taken back to a room before I even finished it all - and I wasn’t in a room long beforethe doctor saw me! I was nervous about the issue I was having, but Dr. Kisthardt took the time to listen to my complaint and asked follow-up questions. She was very thorough in her exam and explanations of what and why she was doing things. I have never felt so comfortable and reassured at an appointment!

As a new patient to Dr Kisthardt, she thoroughly oriented herself to my past medical history. She questioned if I had certain tests relative to my age and health conditions had been completed. She was appropriate to my pain upon tryingto lie down and get up from the exam bed ( due to extreme pain from a non related condition). I will definitely return next year for my annual exam.

As someone who has hearing loss and often run into rude offices and doctors, this was NOT the case for the Lake Ridge office and for Dr. Kisthardt. Dr. Kisthardt was so courteous and accommodating. She took the time to listenand explain EVERYTHING. I didn't feel like I was just another face in the exam room or a person that was causing an inconvenience with her disability. I felt like someone that mattered!

I went here because I had a concern that I wanted to address sooner rather than later, and the number of doctors means you can get an appointment quickly. Doctor Kisthardt was friendly, gentler, and explained every procedure. I would definitely go to her again.

Great doc, very professional and matter of fact. Answered all my questions and follows up in a timely manner. Her team assisted with billing issue with insurance which I appreciated. What I absolutely CANNOT STAND is that 90% of the timeI show up 10 min before my appointment and wait anywhere from 60-120 minutes to see the doc. Almost two hours!! I can understand medical emergencies that pop up occasionally, but this is an ongoing problem at the Alexandria office. It stinks to take a whole day off work just for a check up / follow up.

Dr. Kisthardt herself was lovely. She talked me through everything as it was happening, and patiently answered all my questions. However, I wasn't seen until over an hour after my scheduled appointment. For about 45 minutes of that, I had alreadybeen told to undress and was waiting in that little paper gown in a freezing exam room. Overall it did not make for a pleasant experience.
