Very quick appointment. Dr. Mendiratta was kind and attentive to my questions, though it felt a bit rushed even though there weren’t other patients in the office.

Dr. Mendiratta and Nurse Prac. Hunter are awesome. So is the front desk staff. However, the medical assistant, Hope, is very rude and always seems angry to be there. I asked a simple question about insurance and prescriptions and she gotannoyed that she had to pull up my file. She then got annoyed when she didn't hear me say my birth date and yelled "Speak up!." She got more angry when I asked her to explain how long it would take for the Dr's office and insurance company to settle the pre-auth. I did not hear what her answer was, and I asked her politely to repeat herself, nervous that she would get annoyed at me again. Sure enough, without even answering, she raised her voice at me and told me to stop bothering her and to call my insurance company if I think she is lying. I tried to explain that I simply did not hear her the first time, but she just kept loudly talking over me. I asked to be put back in contact with the front desk and she started laughing at me and transferred me.

She was very condescending. I left in tears because I felt so embarrassed and frustrated. There is a reason why the waiting room is always empty.

This was probably the most pleasant experience I have ever had with a primary care doctor. I was seen right away by a nurse for vitals and then did not have to wait on the doctor or the phlebotomist. I wouldhighly recommend this doctor and this practice to anyone!

I came in for an annual physical and ended up being the last appointment of the day. The office assistant was very helpful and nice with my paperwork, and even offered to hold onto paperwork so that I wouldn't have toworry about. The doctor was even nicer, non-judgmental, and very quick. She spoke with me about different options and was knowledgeable about my insurance. Thank you to the entire staff for helping me even when it was almost closing time!

Dr. Mendiratta is exceptional . She really listens to all of your concerns and questions and is extremely professional with her approach. She is truly in tune to your own personal issues and takes the time and patience to do allshe can to help you in a holistically approach. The wait time was perhaps 5-10 minutes but only because I was a first time patient and needed to fill out paperwork. I will definitely continue to see Dr. Mendiratta as my primary care physician and in addition will have my teenage daughter see her as well.

such a great experience, the only reason my wait time was so long was because I showed up an hour early.

Dr. M and Meredith are my regular care physicians. Even though I live in Virginia, I picked this practice due to their high ratings on Zocdoc and availability, and I highly recommend them! Rarely a wait (definitely not in the waitingroom), labs on-site and I've never had an issue with billing being incorrect or the office staff.

I went in for a consultation and I've never felt more defeated then in that appointment. I just wanted someone to listen to me and hear my concerns about my current health irregularities but every time I spoke I was beingcut off with reasons as to why my behaviors were problematic without letting me finish. I would give clarifying statements but I felt like I was defending myself. (ie: when talking about food choices I was being criticized for things I hadn't even described yet. She asked about what I ate and before I could tell her I weigh my food and portion it out carefully, she said it was probably because I was eating too large of a portion of a healthy meal.) She was so quick to place me in a box before blood work or any additional testing were even discussed, for example she said it probably wasn't my thyroid and most likely my diet because for most patients its their diet choices. Nothing is more frustrating then being told you're probably like most patients even before any testing was being done. I sought a second opinion at another provider entirely and turns out it wasn't my diet, it was in fact my thyroid. It would have been nice to have been listened too when I first expressed my concerns 6 months ago, instead of being told it was probably my fault because of my diet even though all of the signs and symptoms were blaring for a thyroid issue (my endocrinologists words). Maybe it was an off day, she seemed like a nice person and her reviews were great so that is why I chose her, but definitely did not make me feel like I was being listened to and taken seriously that day. I was very open to any suggestions including dietary counseling even if it wasn't a thyroid condition but who wants to continue to treat with an office that makes you feel like this was all your fault in the end.

I waited until my next women's health visit to make sure that my problem wasn't just in my head. Since I just had a women's health visit/physical this year with another practice and no billing issues, I am now confident thatthe issue was not with my approach. I had billing issues with Dr. Mendiratta's office even though I made clear that I only wanted procedures done that were specifically covered by ACA, and the Dr reassured me. I wanted a birth control refill during my women's health visit, and I didn't want unnecessary testing that would leave me on the hook for the bill (I have a high deductible plan). The Dr seemed to reassure me by saying since I just had a Pap smear exam with another practice the year before, I didn't need to do it during my visit with her. In the moment, I felt like she did try to work with me to help me just get the procedures that were covered by ACA. She listened to my breathing using her stethoscope, felt some lymph nodes, wrote my prescription for birth control, and sent me on my way within 10 minutes. A few weeks later I received a substantial bill for said 10-minute visit (I am not allowed to quote the bill per Zocdoc review guidelines). It turns out, because she didn't give me a Pap smear (which she discouraged me from doing to begin with), they couldn't qualify the visit as a women's health visit (which ACA would have covered), and was instead a normal office visit, which I was on the hook for. She's the medical professional that worked with the billing codes, not me. I had no knowledge that not getting that Pap smear was the reason her office was allowed to not code the visit as a women's health visit. Her office pleaded the fifth and told me I had to take the matter to my insurance, and of course my insurance told me I could appeal, which meant that I had to snail mail my explanation letter and play a waiting game. Because of this experience, I decided not to continue to work with that office/made Dr. Mendiratta my primary care physician. This year, I did my complete physical and women's health exam (and birth control refill) at another practice for a full hour with tests and blood drawn, said the exact same thing (I just want procedures that are covered by ACA), held my breath for the bill, but was relieved to find no issues (I had a small member obligation, substantially less than my bill with the Mendiratta office, for immunizations that were not fully covered but that I opted for because I work with kids). If you have a low-deductible insurance, this type of billing issue may not be relevant for you and this office may be wonderful to work with. If you're like myself and many other Americans trying to control health costs using a high deductible plan, be fully warned. I'm just relieved I finally found an office I can trust this year (not with Dr. Mendiratta), albeit it's far away from my house.
