Love it! Great experience
He is just okay overall, but you definitely need to book an appointment online or through phone call with him ahead of time or else you will have to wait more than an hour, because his office seems like its always a full house from walk-in patients. He did his job but I’m not sure if its right as when I explained the problem/sickness of my son to him, he checked my son’s mouth and ears then gave us a prescription of antibiotic (amoxicillin) 5ml each time and 2 times a day. My son is 14 months old. However, I have heard from other doctor that its not okay to give baby at 1 year old age more than 3 ml of antibiotic so I don’t know what to do now.
Excelente atención les recomiendo llevo muchos años con esta clínica
Doctor Zia was an amazing choice for my 1 year old son! His staff was also very attentive, sufficient and respectful. Would definitely recommend!
Excelente doctor muy buen equipo de trabajo muy buena atención. Se los recomiendo y muy económico
I got in the right time as appointment,
Awesome I am making him the PCP for my children.
the manager at this office unprofessional, she will hung up in your face if you will complain about something and No one will call you back to inform that your blood result is back so you can make an appointment to see the doctor because you can't call them every day and ask. I had a blood test about more then a month ago I call to ask the manager told me that I have to make an appointment... when I told her that I did not received a phone call or mail to inform me about that my blood test result back ? after she was just blaming me... I asked to speak to the Dr. she hung up.
Excelente atención muy buen doctor se los recomiendo
Was very good!
Dr. Zia was great! He had excellent bedside manner as well. I will be recommending him and I will be making him my primary care physician after today's visit.
Dr. Zia is a very caring doctor and he truly listens to the concerns of patients and is not adverse to patient input which not only shows a great degree of respect patients but also encourages them to be active participants in their healthcare. This is something I found lacking with other doctors have seen as they forget that patients are not as dumb as they believe and most likely have researched their concerns prior to seeing them. So yes, Dr. Zia has the final answer obviously as you would expect any doctor to but he will also truly listen and honestly let you know if a treatment or particular medication is not in your best interest. I find his approach to be balanced between doctors who are too permissive with their patients wishes and those who are strictly authoritative and do not value patient interest. I have found in him a doctor that I can truly trust with my healthcare and who really values my concerns about my health. It helps that he speaks multiple languages and also has a flexible scheduling system which is patient centered and not just about him and his time. He is a wonderful person and doctor and I'm glad I made the switch from my previous doctor of 10 years and entrust him with my healthcare.
He's a great doctor!!
I had the best visit with Dr Zia. He was patience with me writing down the note to make sure I get all the information and complete with questions.
I was a little uncomfortable with a male doctor being present while I had a PAP done. I would prefer two females.
Excelente atención muy buen doctor
Dr. Zia is knowledgeable and cares about his patients. He is very kind and attentive despite having a busy schedule. You want someone like Dr. Zia because he will take good care of you!
Dr provides PT info on where to get meds for lowest price. During fall sponsor (Walgreens) provides free flu shots for his PTs at his office for 4 Saturdays. He also coordinates with GW Mammovan to get free screenings for breast cancer on premises. Both services are very beneficial for his PTs.
He's a fantastic doctor! He's always very kind, friendly and really pays attention to his clients. I would recommend him to any friends or family for sure!!
It was great that I didn't wait much and I got to manage my doctors appointment time very well during my work break. Dr. Zia is excellent and I highly recommend him.
It was okay but I would let someone know if the medicine one is prescribing has a side effect like suicidal. Especially if it is for a 9 year old. I spent money on that perscription for nothing.
Dr. Zia is a very caring doctor!
hes a good doctor and I recommend him to anyone
I love everything the service and the doctor's are great!
Specifically made the appointment to get shots, received the confirmation from the office, get to the office - and that's when they actually read the appointment details. It turns out the office does not administer any shots (but they can recommend places to go and provide referrals). Dr. Zia seems like a very nice man, but the lack of oversight on the front office operations was enough to switch doctors. Had we been notified that shots were not possible, we would have switched doctors - just not posted a negative review. It's a shame that the review process only focuses on the doctor and not the front office staff. Yes, they are nice - but they need to manage expectations of patients and pay closer attention to the details.
Doctor Zia was great!!. He assessed my injuries and provided my next steps. Looking forward to the next appointment.
Some of the people was very nice but the office smelled really bad i think they need new carpet
Exelete Doctor y muy buen personal de trabajo muy buena atencio al pasiente

Great disposition with kids and even though the waiting room was packed - there was zero wait for our scheduled appointment.
Thourogh and detailed examination via precise interations to understand patient history and make them heel quickly...
My son happy with Dr. Jamal Zia. Thanks.
He is an Awesome doctor! The office staff are very polite and professional especially Karina who did my blood work. They are defiantly a keeper!
Great Doc! Still waiting to go get my results but I appreciate the time Dr. Zia took to listen to my concerns and run adequate exams.
Very kind and helpful staff. Short wait time. Loved it. My toddler was Seen quickly
Very nice Doctor, good bedside manners, the staff was polite and caring.
Muy buena atencion
Very professional! Thorough and patience in listening to client. Excellent staff too...
Great doctor ! I was very impressed with his Spanish ...I'm quite satisfied I was able to get all of my concerns addressed .
I was very disappointed when I had to wait in the waiting room for over an hour before I could see the doctor. An hour and a half wait is just not acceptable!
Staff and nurses are helpful and friendly. Thanks.
Very professional and knowledgeable of internal medicine. Don't judge the office by its cover. They do a real good job. Came here for the first time on a whim and have been going back for three years now.
Great and very nice and very professional and courteous
If you don't have insurance and will be covering the cost of your visit out-of-pocket Dr. Zia is the one to see! I recently moved to VA, am currently without health insurance, and needed to find a primary care physician in the area to see. Though my visit was a little awkward at first since the office is more geared towards people who speak Spanish, and I speak only English, I recommend the place to people since the care is good and the cost more manageable. Originally I had an appointment somewhere else but I'm very glad to have cancelled with that doctor after discovering how expensive my visit with them would be. The other doctor cost significantly more than my new patient visit with Dr. Zia! Of course Dr. Zia's office isn't very fancy (picture folding chairs in the waiting room with cheesy Spanish soap operas playing on a flat screen TV). To me this doesn't really matter though, Dr. Zia was friendly, caring, and able to answer my questions and I really appreciate the commitment he has to making his practice more affordable for patients. I'm very pleased as these are the most important things I was looking for in a new doctor. The receptionist told me the practice is open for walk-in patients as well, so you don't necessarily need an appointment, but it's a good idea to have one in case it's a busy day.
Dr. Zia was super friendly and compassionate. He has the best bedside manners out of any doctor I've ever met. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Zia is wonderful. He is very comprehensive in his exam and spends time explaining his thoughts and concerns. The cost is very reasonable which is a relief to those waiting for insurance coverage. I have seen the doctor twice and am very happy with him.
It was great!!! The doctors were extremely profesional.. My visit went very well.
What a lovely doctor! We were under a lot of stress when we arrived because my son is severely autistic and has significant amount of special needs.Dr. Zai was instantly attuned to my son's needs and very results oriented. He was kind, patient and accommodating. I would highly recommend him to anyone especially people with children -special needs or not!
A doctor that actually listens to jis patients problems.
Bad doctor and very bad staff
Perfecto Grasial el personal bien amables que bien
I've been to see Dr. Zia three times in the past three months for various issues and follow-up visits. Dr. Zia himself is very friendly and seems like a very good doctor. The medical techs also seem very good. But after having to sit in the reception area for an hour every time (and I had an appointment every time), I never want to go back. The chairs are not comfortable and it just upsets me that I should have to wait that long.
It was excellent.
The waiting room was filled with walk in patients that I assume were illegal immigrants because there were representatives from a lawyers office harassing me to make an appointment with them for free health and immigration services. I waited over an hour for my scheduled appointment. The doctor was good, very thourough but seemed frazzled. The office was old and unsafe with cords all over the place and not very clean.
He was a nice doc but it was really a walk in clinic for people with illegal immigration insurance, they kept asking us to sign up for Obama care or if we needed a lawyer for immigration. There were easily 40 people i. The waiting room for 1 doc. Waiting room and exam rooms were old and dingy 1 curtain was hanging up by thumb tacks. Doc was nice broken comp and had to move rooms. Wouldn't go back.
Tiene muchos pacientes y la sala de espera es pequeña
Thoughtful, personable and knowledgable. I will return. Thanks!
Best doctor I've found in DC, highly recommended!
Que me gusto mucho lo professional y lo Medicaid a successful transom,, para fur mucho major or fondue el doctor Que all hospital,,, me gusta y boy a senior Lombardo a mi baby
He was absolutely wonderful. His nurse even came out to find me when I was lost and helped my daughters and I up the stairs.
Dr. Zia and his staff were excellent. I scheduled an annual physical for a Saturday just a couple days before the appt without a problem. Dr. Zia is easy to talk to and thorough, and his staff are friendly and professional. I was very satisfied with my visit and highly recommend him.
More like a walkin clinic for the uninsured.
Doctor was great, but the waiting area was very off-putting. Not sure I'll be back.
While the doctor was in the examination room, I was examined by an "assistant" of who I'm not sure was medically qualified. Also, I was told that I had to make another appointment and come back in for the results of my lab work. It all seemed very sketchy.
In and out in less than 30 minutes. Overall a great first appointment.
Not satisfied, with this visit. Doctor did not take the time to do xrays. He precribe pills. That was not what I expecting.
Dr. Zia was very nice, personable, and informative. The staff was friendly and professional. I have no reservations about going back again.
I got the tests run I wanted to have done, Im waiting for results.
I think hes very good, nice and great Doctor. He will be my new general care Dr.
He is a good doctor
Dr Zia made a right diagnosis and gave me treatment that worked. He is not like most doctors rushing to give you antibiotics for everything. He made himself available for consultation by text messages during the treatment, being very responsive, sometimes late at night. Good old class!
Very kind and fast in and out and treated pain well
CLEAN, ORGANIZED, FAST (COMPARED TO OTHERS IN AREA VRY PROFECIONAL AND EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE, ANSWERED ALL MY QS AND NOT ONLY BUT IT'S LIKE WE ARE NOW FRIENDS WITH THE PRACTICE STAFF. MY FAMILY IS DEFENETELY GOING THERE ALWAYS.
I liked the doctor himself. His front desk staff not so much and the waiting room was not okay with me. I felt very uncomfortable because everything was in spanish, all of the signs, tv, and the forms. The reception was rude and not very helpful on the phone and in person.
