It has been several months since the miserable experience with Dr. Giammittorio. I was a new patient and the nurse failed to read the online request (or refused). She would not listen to the reason for my visit and was doinganything to insist that I get ready for a PAP smear. I did not request a Pap smear, and all she would have had to do was record the refusal. She could not or would not hear that I needed a blood test for hormonal level (at the request of another doctor with a different specialty) to determine if I was in menopause. After a long heated exchange where I had to stick up for myself, some of it in the doctor's presence, he indicated that I do not have to have the Pap smear. He waited entirely too long to intervene. A patient has the right to refuse a procedure, but the assistant did not listen. He wanted me to get the Pap, but he let the assistant argue instead of listening to me. This behavior is toxic, traumatic and unacceptable. The doctor in the later visit indicated that I would "wound up" in the first visit. I had to verbally assert my rights too many times, and I am not the bad person here as he implied. He should not have tried to blame me for the attempt to compel me to get a procedure when all the practice had to do was record the refusal. He threw a used paper product nowhere near the wastebasket and the assistant had to pick it up at the end of the follow-up appointment. I hope I never see this practice again. Rudeness (both Dr. Andre and Dr. Giammittorio) appears to be the rule.

While he preformed the minimum duties to ensure my health was okay, he was unreceptive to my questions and made me feel like my questions were stupid. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone looking for a steady gyno. For an emergency, he would probably be satisfactory.

This provider was very unaccomodating or willing to discuss my current problems and alternatives to them. He flatly told me to "stop taking the **** pill" and that he was not there to assist in any other way. It was aterribly uncomfortable experience and I would not recommend him in the slightest. He also suggested that I go on Weight Watchers if I was concerned about how birth control affects me.

The staff was great. The doctor was TERRIBLE. I cried after I left the office. He was rude, yelled at me at one point because I was asking too many questions about birth control, and would not listen to any ofmy concerns. I am definitely switching doctors as soon as possible.

The office and the support staff are very recommendable. However the Doctor himself came in the door talking about birth control like he was about to hand it out like candy. He conducted the exam absolutely fine, but when I startedto ask about the problems I've been having (I'm terrified I may have a cyst), he just looked at me like I couldn't possibly want more than birth control out of him. I have a fairly complicated medical history in this area (cervical cancer twice), so to be taken seriously when I actually have concerns would have been nice. This is the second doctor within this team that has just processed me instead of listening. It is the most frustrating thing to actually be terrified for yourself and no one who could help will even take the time to listen. If I'm over thinking things fine, but it would have been nice for someone to listen to me long enough to actually tell me that. In the end I did get an appointment for an ultrasound which is what I was hoping for. I don't know if its what I actually need, but I didn't have a doctor in the room willing to actually be a doctor, so when he suggested that to me, just to get a worked up, nearly in tears, girl out of his office, I agreed. For an annual appointment and birth control refill, this guy is your guy, but if you want anything else covered, well, good luck. Maybe its just this area, and the high volume of people here, but I'm tired of feeling like I'm just being processed for the insurance pay out. I'm looking for someone further out of the city. Stafford maybe.

Dr. G, was extremely professional. I felt comfortable with him right away and that's extremely unusual for me. Typically, it takes me a few times. But he was excellent. The practice was inviting, friendly staff, courteous, and they took extrameasures to ensure my privacy. Dr. G is definitely going to be my permanent GYN and I'd recommend him to friends and family without hesitation.
