Dr. Jessica Osborn, MD

Internist, Primary Care Doctor

Professional statement

Learning from her diverse experiences about what works – and does not work – in today’s health care environment gave Dr. Osborn the tools and the impetus to open her own practice. Not content with the “McDonaldization” of medical care that treats many patients like products on an assembly line, Dr. Osborn decided to offer an alternative model of care that benefits both physician and patient. To that end, Dr. Osborn founded Jessica L. Osborn M.D. PLLC in 2011, building on a decade of practice – six of which included public service in Federally Qualified Health Centers at Unity Health Care in Washington, DC’s Columbia Heights neighborhood, and later at Baltimore Medical Systems in the Belair-Edison neighborhood of Baltimore, MD. Dr. Osborn then returned to the DC area, broadening her career experience at Washington Primary Care Physicians for an additional three years, primarily serving the Capitol Hill and Eastern Market neighborhoods. Born in Washington, DC, Dr. Osborn moved to New Jersey as a young child where she spent her formative years, attending Eastern High School in Voorhees, and then Rutgers University, where she graduated with a degree in Biology. She never lost her connection to the District, however, joining her family in frequent visits each year to her grandparents who once lived on 13th & Hamilton Street, NW. After Rutgers, Dr. Osborn returned to Washington, DC for four years to attend medical school at Georgetown University, and upon graduation left for Galveston, Texas to complete her residency at the University of Texas, Medical Branch. Coming back to Washington to begin her medical practice at Unity was an easy decision, and the nine years since have only focused her determination to be the best doctor she can be for her patients and their families

Dr. Osborn is great - very friendly, thorough, and takes her time; I've never felt rushed. However, the two times I've seen her I've had lab work done in office. Each time it has been a struggle to get the results.Recently I was told I would have the results in my portal a week later, but after no results two weeks later, I have sent messages and called the office multiple times, leaving messages with the receptionist and for the medical assistant that have gone unanswered. Extremely frustrating and unprofessional.

Dr. Osborn was fantastic! My mom raved about her for months before I scheduled a physical. She listened to all my concerns, gave me thorough advice, and made me feel comfortable the entire visit. I also didn’t feel rushed at all.Very nice, funny, and showed she genuinely cares about what’s best for you.

I like Dr. Osborn. I don't like waiting longer than 15 minutes for any appointment. The doctor's time is important, but so is that of the patient. Doctors and hair stylist really do need to do a much better job at scheduling.

Dr. Osborn was so great at really taking the time and listening to everything that was bothering me. She took great care in providing me with resources for physical therapy treatment centers and looking up the best type of medication formy specific condition. Her staff was also extremely considerate and friendly. Dr. Osborn even called me personally the day before my appointment to make sure I knew about the insurance billing for a particular procedure.

I had my first appointment and yearly physical with Dr. Osborn recently. She was great - very thorough and really welcoming bedside manner. She really took her time with me, going through whole history and addressing any concerns I had. Ifeel like that is so important, because a lot of doctors these days don't have the time/won't take the time to really get to know their patients. I would definitely reccomend Dr. Osborn!

Since my appointment with Dr. Osborn I have shared my experience to any and everyone who would listen. I have NEVER had a physician be as thorough and informative as Dr.Osborn. She actually talked to me about my health and wewalked through actions plans that actually made sense to get me on track. Dr. Osborn's staff was also a delight as they are friendly, personable, and efficient. As a result of this experience, I no longer dread going to the Dr. for any reason. With Dr. Osborn and her staff you are not just another patient you are family!

Outside of being clearly qualified (if not above and beyond that), Dr. Osborn's bedside manner, grace, and ability to take the time to really listen to her patients was much appreciated. Normally you go to a doc and they ask youwhat's wrong, poke and prod a bit, and then send you off with some pills. Dr. Osborn really LISTENED, asked questions, and offered simple suggestions to try. Though I don't want to have to see her frequently (for obvious, health-related reasons!), I'm glad that I came across Dr. Osborn and look forward to continuing to build a doctor-patient relationship moving forward.

I was excited to visit Dr. Osborn based on the many positive reviews and was not disappointed. She had a great bedside manner and is a wonderful doctor. However, the staff at reception and billing, and nurse who aided in theappointment were the exact opposite - short with me and rather unpleasant. There was no light conversation as I would typically experience at a medical interaction. I'm unlikely to return to Dr. Osborn for this reason unfortunately.

I always enjoy my appointments with Dr. Osborn. She really takes the time to understand you as a person and as a patient. While I had to wait a little bit, Dr. Osborn explained the reason for the delay and Iappreciated her candor and good humor. You can tell she is truly listening to your concerns by the questions she asks and I never feel like I'm being rushed. Her staff is also very friendly and eager to help, so I always leave her office feeling better than when I went in. That's what health care should be.
