It was a pleasurable experience. Dr. Falzon-Kirby is delightful and professional. She walks you through the process and explains it thoroughly. It was quick and done carefully. I? was nervous about finding a new doctor, as I? just moved to thearea, but not only is the location convient for me but my experience also made going to the lady doctor less of an anxious process. Highly, highly recommend.

The Dr. was pleasant & the entire procedure took about 20 min. That being said, the wait time was over an hour, which did not make sense as I had an appointment & also because there were not that many patients.

This was my second time visiting Dr. Falzon's Arlington office, and the second time I had to wait over 30 minutes past my scheduled appointment time. Both times I arrived at least 10-15 minutes early to check-in and finish any necessarypaperwork, and still had to wait at least 30 minutes to be seen. I like Dr. Falzon and I'm not sure if it's a lack of efficiency with the staff or because she is the only doctor in the office but both times it has been frustrating. This last visit was particularly frustrating because I waited almost 40 minutes for a 5 minute appointment.

Received a bill 2 months after my visit from Quest Diagnostics (listing Maria Falzon as the referring physician) for several hundred dollars. Have tried calling both of her offices and Quest Diagnostics for an explanation of what these chargesare related to but nobody seems to have any idea. Don't they have files detailing patient visits?! Recall her office aid trying to get me to agree to have all these tests done when I was at the office (I declined). They were extremely pushy and I am not too shocked that I am now receiving a bill for a bunch of test that sure don't sound like anything I had done.

Avoid her office at all costs! I had multiple bad experiences and ended up switching doctors when I was 8 months pregnant, which was very scary for me. Her staff is incompetent and don't care about her patients at all. Evenon my last day, her head secretary was incredibly rude. And while Dr. Falzon is nice, she doesn't have a handle on her staff, can be forgetful (which was worrisome from the start), always outsources when she has questions (instead of getting answers, I always for a referral), and is irresponsible when it comes to charging patients. I ended up spending so much more because of this. And yes, I have insurance. But it felt like she runs her practice in the most profitable way versus what's actually best and necessary for her patients. I'm so much happier with my new doctor now and only wish I'd made the switch away from Dr. Falzon sooner!

The reception staff at the office was nice, and they were able to call my insurance company to ensure that I had coverage (it's an oddly specific plan under Cigna). Dr. Falzon-Kirby was quick with the exam and made sure toexplain everything she was going to do during it. I wasn't pleased with the two women who took my weight/blood pressure and drew my blood. The one who took my blood pressure asked me afterwards if anyone has told me I had high or low BP, which made me worry about my results. She said it was fine, so why would you even ask me that? The one who drew my blood was pretty cold, which I found confusing. I hate needles in my veins, and I was clearly anxious about it. Her bedside manner was nonexistent; the process was fine but I would rather have someone who's a bit more empathic and a little less robotic in their work with another person.

The actual appointment was fine, Dr. Falzon-Kirby was very pleasant and listened to my concerns/questions. The office was very inconvenient though. I had to park in a garage that charged by time, and because of how long I waited to beseen, it was quite a bit. The security guard was very rude to me, and the layout of the hospital was difficult to navigate.

I saw Dr. Falzon-Kirby for the first time today. Her office staff and medical assistants were very helpful and kind. I found Dr. Falzon-Kirby extremely professional, compassionate and knowledgeable. She is professional with a caring bedside manner. I was impressed with her. She took my concerns seriously and ordered tests to check things out as well. The girl who drew my blood did so effortlessly, and basically painless. Blood draws in my past have been very tough at times, so I was so impressed and thankful with the ease of the blood draw. I saw the Dr. at her office and Arlington, and I would highly recommend her.

OK, so READ THIS before making an appointment. Dr. Falzon-Kirby was kind and polite but will have nothing to do with IUDs or Abortions for "religious reasons". If you're good with that, it'll be fine. I lightly *mentioned* being curious aboutIUDs and was shut down immediately. Nor, will she refer you to a Dr. that inserts IUDs. This led me to be embarrassed and a little judged during the rest of the visit. Also, they administered a urine test even though I said I did not need/want to be tested for STDs because I have a long-term partner and we are both STD-free. Also, they got my appointment date wrong. Also, I had to be completely naked under a large paper towel for the exam which was less than comfortable.
