Dr. Garreau was nice enough and informative, however, after I was examined for pelvic pain and was told everything was normal(including urinalysis), I was never given any guidance or follow-up on how to proceed in terms of treatment or finding possible causes. I’ve since made an appointment elsewhere to hopefully get to the bottom of my symptoms. Also, the front desk staff was super unprofessional.

This was one of the best appointments I've ever had with a doctor. She actually sat down and talked with mebefore she examined me and had a conversation with me! She was kind and truly cared about me. She took a great deal of time in examining me and explained everything about what she saw and her treatment plan. I drove a half hour to see her and it was well worth the trip. She is absolutely terrific! See this doctor!

About Dr. Elizabeth Garreau

Dr. Elizabeth Garreau has been practicing gynecology and obstetrics for more than 20 years. While she loves helping new moms achieve trouble-free pregnancies and welcome healthy babies, she knows that a woman’s concerns sometimes extend beyond her reproductive health. Dr. Garreau has a particular interest in helping patients with fibroids, menopausal issues and abnormal pap smears. She says, “OB/GYN is the only specialty that combines primary care -- seeing patients regularly during different phases of their lives -- with surgery, which is so satisfying because you can fix problems instead of just managing them. Seeing how a procedure or treatment has changed a patient’s life, stopped their pain or bleeding, or enabled them to have a child, is very special. We can make such differences in our patients' lives!”

Poor customer service. The nurse asked routine questions and made sure to show her arrogance and how little she cared about what she was asking. Overall, very uncomfortable environment. Wouldn’t recommend.

Today was My first visit. She addressed my concern and advised me to do a few tests I have been neglecting because of a busy life and thinking some things were no longer necessary for me at this point inmy life. I liked how fit she is. A doctor ho takes care of herself will take good care of me. N.T.

I found Dr. Garreau to be very personable and easy to talk to. She was warm, and listened well, and seemed very down to earth. After examining me, she gave me thorough and detailed advice on what I had come tosee her about. I left feeling reassured, knowing that I had found a very good gynecologist!

Due to insurance company coverage, I had to use another OBGYN for a couple years. While that was ok, as soon as my new insurance changed, I came back to Dr Garreau. I trust her with my healthcare, she’s experienced, caringand thorough. I feel empowered with information about my care, because she explains clearly and honestly. Highly recommended.

When Dr. Garreau walked in she immediately made me feel at ease, greeting me with a big smile and very warm demeanor, asking about my day. She was very thorough throughout the exam, making sure to explain anything I had questionsabout in detail. She’s definitely a “hip” doctor, very up on the times and not “stuck in her old ways” (for lack of a better term). The only downside to my visit was that I waited about 45 minutes before being seen, but I will definitely be seeing Dr. Garreau as my regular OB-GYN from now on!

Dr. Garreau is the third OB/GYN I have seen since moving to Northern Virginia last January. She did an amazing job explaining the pros and cons of different birth control methods, as I am looking to switch off of the pill.She took the time to answer all of my questions and I scheduled my annual exam on the way out. However, the receptionist (Oriana) comes off as a little rude, as when I was contacted to confirm the noon appointment I made on ZocDoc, she said "well, it's at 11:45am now" with no further explanation. Don't let her discourage you from being seen by a great doctor.

I have followed Dr. G from her old practice because she is one of the best female GYN's I've ever encountered. She takes time to listen, has a very pleasant manner, and talks with her patients prior to examinations. She's excellentat explaining what needs to be done, and during examinations is always mindful of the comfort level of her patients. Her bedside manner is second to none, I've recommended her to many friends who feel exactly the same way about Dr. G's professionalism, knowledge, care, patience and expertise.

I have seen Dr. Garreau previously, about 10 years now. She changed practices recently and it was so easy to tell she was less rushed and just more relaxed. I like her because she doesn’t sugar coat things. She is honestabout your health issues. She gives you the information and you are then able to make a decision about your care. Simple as that.

Overall good experience. Their office was displaced due to flooding so they were sharing a dentist office - not ideal, but they were very apologetic. At least they weren't closed. All the staff I spoke with were very friendly. Dr. Garreau was great.

I felt that my appointment with Dr. Garreau was rushed. She was a bit rude in the way she told me that I shouldn't gain the suggested 25lbs during my pregnancy because I am not "normal weight." Overall just felt unwelcome.
