After waiting over hour past my actual appointment time, visit was helpful. I had migraine attack and she was able totreat. Since i was still in pain, I forgot to ask for paperwork describing what I was treated with, it should been given as matter of course. I have to wait to log in to my patient portal to see what exact medication I was given since I don’t remember the names. She is a good doctor but having wait times of over 1 hour is a bit much, I’m not sure I would come back. Every single time I’ve gone it took more than 15 mins past appointment time.

I felt very comfortable expressing my concerns with Dr. Francis. She asked questions to make sure she understood what I was explaining and also took time to go into detail when explaining something to me. I will be using Dr. Francis as my primary doctor. There was hardly any wait time after checking in.

Dr. Francis is friendly and demonstrates a real concern for her patients, but the wait time was insane. I arrived at 10:10 am for my 10:15 am appointment, but I was seen until around noon. I left the office at 12:45 pm.

Dr. Francis was very thorough! I recently "fired by PCP" and was looking for someone who took the time to get to the root of the issue instead of treating the side effects. She did just that and more! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who's looking for a PCP who cares about her patient and shows that by not rushing through the appointment....

This was my first visit, but from the moment I walked in the door I felt welcomed. Dr. Fedisia Francis is very knowledgeable and relatable. I felt comfortable knowing that I can see that she actually cares. Also, I’m happy that she didn’t suggest a lot of medication or try to come up with false diagnosis. I will continue to visit her office. It was also nice to see that people ACTUALLY flow through the office.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
