Dr. Rana was great! I was there for my annual physical and she was very nice and answered all my questions. I had recently stopped taking a medication and she was able to explain to me the changes I was seeingin my body and how long to expect that. I feel very comfortable with Dr. Rana and I will go back to see her again. Her staff was also very professional and I didn't even notice when her PA took my blood sample. Finally, I had to have a form filled out for my insurance company's HSA plan. Dr. Rana filled out the form for me and her staff called me when it was ready a week later. Really good service!

Dr. Rana is AWESOME! Not only was she extremely professional, but her entire demeanor was so inviting. I could tell after spending less than 5 minutes with her that she would be my primary care doctor for the rest of mylife! She was patient, kind, attentive and actually listened to me while I voiced my concerns. Dr. Rana was not quick to grab a pad and start writing prescriptions or instructions. Rather, she took the time to think through all of my concerns and appropriately made recommendations! Her front office and medical intern also were kind and accommodating. I highly recommend Dr. Rana to anyone who is looking for a doctor who truly cares about her patients and who is not quick to dismiss you. Her office is not run like the "run-of-the-mill" doctor's office where you see a lot of patients who are in and out of the exam room within 5 minutes or less! No, this practice is run like all practices should run -- in an efficient, effective, and professional manner. Kudos to Dr. Rana and her staff!!!

Dr. Rana was great and I enjoyed working with her as my doctor but the staff is absolutely horrible and I will not be going back. Most recently when I was very sick, I called to make an appointment and theperson who answered the phone told me there were no appointments and offered me no alternative with different appointment times or suggestions with what I should do. My symptoms were pretty severe. During my last appointment I had lost weight and the assistant was very rude, wanting to gossip about how I did it because she was trying to lose weight, her suggestion to me was to drink green tea.. I find this completely inappropriate as I was in a doctors office and there was a medical reason why I lost weight. I've waited in the waiting room for over 45 minutes more then once. Last, there has been at least two occasions where someone in the office wrote me the wrong prescription and once refused to fix the mistake. I wish I had better things to say because there is potential here but I am not going back.

She works with people like she works with animals doesn't even want to touch me or check what I have all her visit was question and that's all . He stuff was rude having a medical assistant student letting her doeverything without correcting her even when she made mistakes. Her front disk, rude person. I called after the visit to talk to the doctor about a prescription she was claiming that the doctor not on the office and saying that she can't reach her. Interested to take money from patient and from the insurance. I will never go to her office and I will never recommend her. I will try my best to reach out to the medical board and let them know about this doctor and her stuff

I think this had to be the worst wait time in a long time. The Doctor was ok just wasn't what I expected. She didn't have an excuse as to why the wait time was so long. I highly doubt if I will come back to see this Doctor.

This was my first time at Dr. Rana's office, having only recently moved to the area. I was pleased with the efficiency and personability of all of the staff in the office. While I just wanted a prescription refill, Dr. Ranadefinitely made sure to ask if I had any other health questions or concerns and documented a baseline of my health for her files. I plan to keep her as my PCP in the future.

Very knowledgable. Her nurse came into the room to ask her a question on another patient when she was seeing me. She asked, "did you notice the edema on room 2?" When Dr. Rana responded "yes", it was very reassuring tome that she is very observant and is using all of this information to make the best clinical decision. I'm not sure what is going on for me medically, but I felt confident leaving her office with some referrals that she is going to be a great resource for the best treatment possible.

Although the wait was pretty long, I was happy with my appointment. Dr. Rana asked the important questions and took my concerns into consideration. I liked that they were able to take blood there in the office and do an EKGright there. I was very grateful that I didn't have to go to a lab to have that done. I didn't like having to pay $4.00 just to park at the Dr.'s office, but overall I was happy with my visit. Next time I will park in a place I know and walk to the office.

Wait was a bit long, but, then again, sometimes you just gotta suck it up, if you 're seeing a good doctor. She was great. Did not rush me, was polite and attentive. Made sure I have the opportunity to addressany other issues I had questions about. I am permanently switching to this office from my other PCP in DC. I do recommend Dr Preeti Rana to anyone looking for a personable MD in NOVA area.

Everything was okay. Front desk staff left a little to be desired in terms of attentiveness and positive attitude. I also found it weird that in the office they did not ask for my medical history. The Dr. was fine, tookcare of what I needed and was friendly. The blood work ordered was done in their office, so that was also nice.
