Verified Patient Reviews
The medical student who saw me was outstanding, and when I met Dr. Francis she was great too! They were really helpful in getting me in and out, and have even been able to recommend some things to help me make a lifestyle change. I've found a new PCP - and she's only 5 min from where I live!
Dr. Francis and her assistant was very nice and patient. They answered all of my questions and really tried to assist me with my ailments (though I didnt really have one). I went for a regular checkup. I feel like I have finally found a great PCP.
Dr. Francis is a very nice doctor. She's doing everything she can to help ease my physical discomfort. I like that im able to ask questions and uncover my needs without feeling rushed. I'm glad I was able to finally find a pcp that im comfortable with.
New patient consultation for a new PCP took waaaaaay too long. My appt. was at 11am, arrived on time, filled out remaining paper work (5-10mins, which was confusing), was sent back for vitals which took about 15mins, then came the wait. I wasn't seen until 5 before Noon. 40mins in the patients room? And that's only bc they saw me with my coat attempting to leave so they flagged her down. She eventually came to my room. Was semi apologetic and even made some distasteful responses towards my inquiry about the wait time. She's nice however. Asked a few questions & wrote some prescriptions and that was it. 40min wait for a 10-15min visit. Ridiculous. Very nice office staff however I won't be returning to this practice. Not a fan of the office space either.
Overall, Dr. Francis was kind and thorough, but the clinic and amenities were not the best (small, crowded waiting area; paper robes; just not what I was used to personally).
Dr. Francis is an amazing doctor. However, I always have to wait a long time to see her, no matter what time my appointment is. That said, I really do love the doctor’s bedside manner and she really listens to and addresses all my concerns.
Dr. Francis is amazing. She listens kindly and takes seriously any of your questions or concerns. I came in with a laundry list of things I had forgotten to ask other doctors for years. She examined everything I was concerned about. I even went back to her for my Pap smear. Just a lovely human being.
The doctor is awesome really seem to care about patients
She was very attentive and patient. The staff was very professional and friendly
Dr. Francis was very personable and took the time to read my forms and address each concern before she examined me. In my experience with other physcians, I tend to feel pushed and prodded, and sometimes even ignored. But Dr. Francis made me feel right at home.
Dr. Francis was very personable. She listened and even went in search of some things that could help me with one of the issues I was telling her about. I'm new to the area and I'm glad to have found a doctor who seems to care genuinely.
Great listener seem to really care about her patients. Takes her time with you. Very thorough.
She is generous with her time.liestened to all my concerns . Even those beyond the reason for the visit . Seems genuine in wanting to help her patients.
I was seen a few minutes before my appointment time. I didn't even have time to fill out the paperwork. The nurse and doctor had excellent bedside manner. Dr. Francis could have sent me to the ER because of my problem, but she didn't. She took the time to address my situation and I greatly appreciate the savings of time and money and that I knew I was on the right track to getting better when I left her office.
I was very pleased wih my visit being that I am new to D.C., I wasnt sure what to expect. The staff was super friendly and the doctor took the time to discuss my health. Although it was very busy at the office the staff seemed very well organized. When I waited to get my blood drawn one of the nurses even went to me, and the other patients to let them know their tuen was coming up soon. Very nice practice!

My visits with Dr. Francis are excellent .
They stated they were unaware of my appointment via zocdoc but apologized and assisted me.
Great and competent staff. I was't asking any difficult questions and she was pleasant and seemed capable. She's switching practices in November 2012.
I thought she was great. She had just started using ZocDoc so there was appointment confusion, but I wouldn't hold that against her. I had my 2 yr old daughter with me running around and the whole staff was pleasant and understanding.
