Verified Patient Reviews
I was a first time parient and I was made to feel completely at ease. I was seen within 5 mins of my appointment time. I went in for an annual physical and the doctor Dr. Joanna Boch was kind, patient and very thorough. She asked me questions and explained everything in detail. I got the feeling that she is a wonderful doctor. Even both the nurse practicioners I interacted with were kind and warm. I was in and out in an hour and this is such an improvement to my previous annual phsical checkups.
I went to this office May 2nd to get an annual pap and STD testing and I still have yet to get my results back. I called 2 days after and 9 days after and both times they said they will call when they get them back from the lab. 2 months later and I still have not gotten a response. I'm quite upset.
She was kind and patient. Very thorough and informative!!
Dr. Bock is great! She listened to me, asked questions and came up with a game plan to get me started back to good health! Dr. Bock really cares about my health and showed me lots of options and things we can do to help. Good sense of humor and straightforward.
Very personable but also knowledagble
I was slightly annoyed at the extended wait time, but the doctor was well worth the wait. She was courteous, and spoke clearly and simply. The facility is clean, nice, and looks very modern. I look forward to following up with her in the future.
Doctor is fine, but I will never be coming back to this Fairfax CareMed location. Nurse/receptionists mumble, talk too quietly, and we're very nonchalant and lethargic. Wait time was RIDICULOUS. Why make an appointment when I have to wait an hour?! I filled out all my paperwork on ZocDoc and STILL had to fill out all the forms even though they knew I had filled them out prior to my arrival.
Really nice staff. The Doctor was attentive and interactive. She's very personable. This was more than a 5-minute visit and it leads me to trust that we will be able to resolve my health issue.
Had a lump. Turned out to be nothing. What I like about her is she is professional yet personal. Makes you feel comfortable. Explains things in detail, but in terms I can understand
Dr. Bock was amazing! Kind, considerate and she listened to my concerns and answered my questions. I was reluctant because of the nasty rating that someone gave her, but after meeting her, I'm not sure if it was true.
I have been to this office a few times and am always pleased with my visits with Joanna. She takes the time to listen to you, ask the right questions, and explain her reasoning for certain tests/results. I've also met with Jessica, the nurse practioner, when Joanna was away, and was behond pleased with our meetings as well. Great team!
I booked an appointment with this lady through Zocdoc because she had availability when it was convenient for me and because she was the featured doctor for the specific issue that I was seeking treatment for. First of all, she told me that she does not issue a diagnosis. Second, after I was charged a higher copay than usual for the visit (I have great insurance, I have already contacted them about this) she spent less than five minutes with me. Didn't touch me, not even to shake my hand. She sat ten feet away the entire four to five minutes she spoke to me. Did not examine me and informed me that Zocdoc made a mistake and they shouldn't have recommended her practice for the issue I specifically selected when I made the appointment. She then referred me to someone else, brought in their contact information and made me call them. Literally made me call them on the spot so she can "feel like she did something for me". The whole experience was surreal. I hope others don't make the same mistake.
She is very smart and thorough!!
I liked her demeanor and candidness. She was professional, yet articulate
Had a wonderful experience with Dr. Bock. I will go with her as my PCP. She's very easy to talk to and listens well.
I think that patients should be told beforehand if students would like to come in the room for the exam so the patient can consent. This was the most uncomfortable doctor visit I've ever had.
Joanna Bock is a great doctor, diagnosed several issues I had right away, explained everything at an appropriate level, was corteous and friendly. I am getting better already.
She was probably one of the most brash and abrasive physician I have ever met. An ultimate tragedy and product of the fallacies of modern medicine. No competency whatsoever to understand what the patient is feeling, and no inclination to show any effort. An utter disgrace. Please go to a different doctor.
Friendly, thoughtful, and patient! Easy to make an appointment, convenient location, professional staff.
Wait was Kong and hardly any patients were there
This was my first visit to Dr. Bock and I really enjoyed speaking with her. I felt like she listened attentively to each of my concerns and we came up with a plan to address them. She appeared genuinely interested in what I had to say versus other doctors whom I have visited where I received 5 minutes of their attention. I enjoyed her bedside manner and will definitely be continuing to see her in the future.
Dr. Bock was very friendly, respectful, knowledgeable, and practical in helping me.
Nice front desk staff, and Dr. Bock was very easy to talk to. She helped with my diagnosis.
Extremely helpful and efficient!
She's great and I really appreciated how thorough she was and honest in her feedback.
pleasant and nice. Wonderful people.
Be careful, even if you're seeing a primary care doc with an appt, they will bill you ad an urgent care visit as she's out of an urgent care center. She was up beat an professional but the billing issue really chapped me.
She is simply the best doctor I ever have and had.
She is an excellent primary care physician. She's knowledgeable and patiently listened to what I had to say.
The doctor cut my daughter off and got snippy as she was trying to explain something about me, as I am hard of hearing and she speaks for me and explains a lot about me to my doctors about me, always in my appointments and looking out for my best interests and relaying things we have previously discussed as she is my POA. I usually leave appts asking my daughter what was said but the doctor seemed to make the appt only about herself and me, cutting my daughter out of the appointment when she was trying to explain something about me to her. Not pleased with that part, otherwise I got what I needed out of appointment, but location is farther than expected and will be looking for more of a family practice for my PCP rather than an Urgent care facility. Staff was nice.
The wait time was ridiculous. What's the point in setting an appointment if you don't get seen on time.
Dr. Bock was great! I had a consultation with her as I'm looking for a new primary care doctor -- and I found one -- Dr. Joanna Bock! I found Dr. Bock to be very professional and confident. She took the time to review my medical history, medications, and addressed all my questions and concerns.
The insurance/Dr phone app said she could treat for ADD. She is an intern and can not diagnose or treat. She said my daughter was healthy and I was billed for the visit. We wasted our time and had to schedule with someone else and pay again.
Overall the appointment was fine. The doctor was a bit awkward, she did kind of seem uncomfortable which did not put me at ease.
Dr. Bock listened to me and explained her diagnosis very clearly. She took her time listening and talking to me. I showed that cared about her patients. I am considering having her as my primary doctor. Also, the staff were very friendly and the nurse was very professional.
