DO NOT recommend coming here. 1) They send your lab work to an out-of-network provider so you’ll see a bunch of bills coming through from Mercy Diagnostics. They were absolutely no help in resolving this so I had to call myinsurance and Mercy in order to close these. 2) They used an extra IUD they had on hand so they didn’t purchase it through my insurance and I had to pay for it and bill it to my insurance instead of having them take care of it which is definitely backdooring the system. 3) I had an early morning appt and was on time, took her 45 minutes to see me for a 5 minute check up and then they billed me for a “long doctor’s appointment”. 4) I have nothing against student trainees but the student performed my check up and IUD placement so it bothers me that she’s even taking credit for her practice. Moral of the story is to stay away. It’s a small office and the most interaction I had there was with the student and the billing companies

I went 3 times for the same reason and they keep doing me exams and taking my money to tell me at the end I don’t have anything but I still feeling not well, the 3 times I got the samemedicine even after telling her that is not working and all and I need something else. I’m never coming back to this place. The assistants are very nice and profesional but the wait is also too long...

Complete waste of my time. I went for a minor examination and waited over an hour for my scheduled appointment. The office is clearly disorganized and they packed their schedule full of patients whom they don't even see on time. Iwould have went to my regular OBGYN but they were booked and I regret not waiting. This is my first and last visit to this practice.

Dr. Hafizi took me seriously and was quick to come up with a treatment plan. My condition has yet to be diagnosed, but I'm hoping the tests and follow ups she ordered will provide some insight. Overall I had a good experience with her and would return.

Omg she is the worst!!! The office has unorganized rules and they don't even give you enough information about your pregnancy !!! If you are pregnant for the first time and you have no clue please please don't even think aboutgoing to her find another doctor in fairfax. I literally had no clue about pregnancy and she made everything so confusing for me. I was in so much pain and I couldn't really walk around the end of my pregnancy but my bully was not even that big so when I went there for my check up I told her how i was feeling she said aaah that is normal I'm like hmmm ok. So the same night I ended up in the ER and the nurse told me to buy a belt that can help me hold my bully and I was fine. Simple things like this she doesn't even explain! I refused to have her do my delivery and I ended up getting a different doc!

The waiting time was too much while the doctor was outside the patient room talking to the nurse. She didn't paid attention to the patient complain and the entire checkup was less than 5 minutes and then she rushed into thejudgment. No respect shown to the patient while it's crucial part of the treatment.

For 90% of my visit Dr. Hafizi, was silent with a student leading the examination. The one time Dr. Hafizi did chime in was to say that I "wasn't making up" the problem I was in for, something was clearlywrong. Women are often assumed to be hypochondriacs and I was disappointed that Dr. H's words seemed to perpetuate that myth. I left without a diagnosis, but, somehow, with a prescription to antibiotics. The next day, my conditioned worsened and I called, worried, to ask for some guidance on how to proceed. Dr. Hafizi reiterated that her office was closed for the Memorial Day holiday, directed me to to the ER, and hung up. I would not recommend.

She is considered a specialist, so the copay was slightly higher than normal, but nothing outrageous. Gigi Hafizi was very pleasant, funny, and nice and made me feel extremely comfortable. She was gentle and answered all my questions. I broughtmy best friend for moral support and she made small talk and seemed genuinely interested in our lives and made my friend want to make an appointment with her too! It was my annual exam and STD screen and she made it quick and painless. She even includes a breast exam with her paps! Would recommend her to anyone and i cannot see myself seeing another OBGYN as long as im in the area.

I do like Dr. Hafizi and have been with her for several years. But her practice of scheduling more than one patient for the same time is a real turn off. Today I walked into a packed office, where there wereno seats and at least 3 patients ahead of me. I waited 45 minutes and believe the only reason I was seen then is because I spoke up. All of us have busy schedules and commitments. To be routinely kept waiting is inexcusable. I regret this latest experience has me seriously considering a different practice where a patients time is treated with the same respect as the doctor's.

I personally Love Dr. Hafizi. I have been a patient of hers for about 13 years. She has always listened to me and my concerns, and then has worked with me to help find the resolution to my problems. If sheneeds to refer me to another doctor she has always referred me to the top doctor in that field, which I find very reassuring. Dr. Hafizi has saved my life twice and saved both of my biological sons lives. She is a HERO to me, and always will be! Pregnancies can often go wrong as mine did, and if the doctor is not quick lives are lost. Both my pregnancies ended with emergency C-sections where both my babies and my lives were at stake. Dr. Hafizi saved us all, and that is why she is my personal HERO!

She was very nice, but the only thing she could do at the office was get my weight, blood pressure, and listen to the baby's heartbeat. Blood work and ultrasounds have to be done off site at a different time.

Horrible worst experience of my life I'll try keep this short and sweet there where complications with my pregnancy but my boyfriend and I decided to keep the baby and pray for the best ...I hadn't seen her since my lastvisit I explained to the receptionist that my boyfriend and his "7yr old" daughter where with me but she did not know what was going on and if there where any complications with the pregnancy to discreetly let us know so we could remove her from the room which they said was not a problem they would have me go in first by myself and leave them in the lobby which was fine I get to the examination room and the first thing dr.hafizi tells me when she walks in the room is that I HAVE TO TERMINATE MY PREGNANCY!!!! I told her no I don't that the specialist explained everything and told me my options but never said I have to then Dr.hafizi asked me if my choice was because of religious reasons.. Just to end the conversation I told her "yes" ... Then she brought in my boyfriend and his daughter and she states in front of his daughter that the baby didn't have a harpy and that they were going to send me by emergency to the hospital I was outraged she would say something so delicate in front of a child... At this point and very worried and I proceed to go to the hospital unfortunately I had lost the baby they decided to induce me but Dr.hafizi he didn't want to start the process until 4 o'clock in the morning because she didn't want to come in to the hospital in the middle of the night at this point I was fed up with this doctor and I told them that I refuse to wait till 4 AM to be induced induce me an hour later after that conversation after labor I was having more complication with the placenta but I wanted to see if it could come out naturally with out surgery by that time The doctor had arrived to the hospital I had just gave birth to my 15 week old baby and the doctor proceeds to come in the room and tell me I don't have a choice and she had a very nasty attitude it was so bad that the nurses from the hospital apologized to us on behalf of the doctor honestly she was so cold no compassion for my situation this was my miracle baby I was told I couldn't have kids and here I was pregnant with my first at 25 and to find out I lost my baby after she came in the room and told me I had no choice I didn't see her again but I know she performed the procedure because my nurse told me she didn't check up or leave any recovery instructions I think she is very unprofessional It was the worst experience of my life....
