I felt the office was very professional and organized with state of the art equipment. They were very good with the numbing as well as the camera down my throat. This was a second doctor and comparing the two this doctor, Steve Bielamowicz, was 110% better.

Dr. Bielamowicz, whom I've seen 3 times, is not only a fine physician technically, but also has a caring, compassionate manner. He listens. I felt that I had been heard, understood, and offered cutting edge treatment options. He also went outof his way to provide paperwork required due to my condition. I highly recommend Dr. B.

I love Dr Bielamowicz, mostly because he understands the unique concerns singers like me have to confront. He truly listens and knows how to treat voice-related issues. However, and this is no reflection on him, but the wait time was toolong. I arrived 15 mins early for my 1:30 appointment and didn't see him until 2:30. And it took almost a month to get an appointment to begin with. Also, I had to fill out new patient forms that turned out to be unnecessary since I'm an existing patient.

Good: Dr. B was awesome. Friendly and patient and answered my many questions. Felt like working with a true pro. Needs improvement: Front office staff was alright, not stellar. PLEASE figure out how to take Zocdoc paperwork rather than make patients fill out forms from scratch.

Dr. Bielamowicz focuses on vocal problems, but he is listed as a general ENT on zocdoc. Despite that, he still saw me for my allergy problems. He is very personable and very sweet and actually genuinely cares about your condition whateverit may be. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!

First of all, the appointment was changed to 7/21. I'm surprised you don't have ways to track such changes. Secondly, GW Medical Faculty Associates presents the typical Washington mix of well-trained & competent professionals and supportstaff whose limited competence and poor training are the product of low pay scales and the inadequacy of DC schools. The support staff in this office didn't seem to know anything about ZocDoc, which means that filling out the forms online was a waste of time; I had to do them all over again by hand. Once I was in the hands of medical professionals things improved dramatically. Dr B and the intern who worked with him listened carefully, explained things clearly and came up with a strategy that made sense.

I thought it was a good appointment. Dr. Bielamowicz and the resident asked good questions for back up and the procedure (scoping my vocal cords) went well. I understand what the diagnosis is and will take next steps accordingly.

Dr. Bielamowicz was very thorough in examination, asking pertinent questions and explaining his approach in language that was clear and respectful. He is personable but not overly talkative , obviously a careful scholar while not self-importantor impatient with an older patient. I trust his knowledge, his judgment, and his human concern.

My visit with Dr. Bielamowicz was pleasant and informative. I visited him initially because I thought he specialized in speech pathology services; I had been having issues with vocal fatigue and soreness. He explained that people typicallyvisited him if they were going the surgical route to correct vocal issues. Once I explained that I wanted to focus more on proper vocal production to correct my issue, he directed me to actual speech pathologists in the area that could better assist me.

Dr Bielamowicz is a great doctor, especially because he understands not only the human voice, but also the importance singers like I place on having a quality instrument. Singing is a professional issue for me, and having Dr Bielamowicz treat me helps tremendously. I'd recommend him to anyone.

D. B. was so caring as was his staff. He took time to explain my diagnosis and even assessed all my current medicines, seemed genuinely interested in me and my problem. Even complimented me on my writing, there were many formsto fill out. The video of my vocal cords was painless and Dr. B. took time for a thorough exam. My only wish is that the office could be or would be closer to Olney!
