I have been a member of the Zocdoc community for several years now, but have never had the desire to write a review until now. Dr. Svoboda is one of the nicest doctors I have met. He's upbeat and friendly andexplained what he thinks the issue is and his recommended plan of action in a way that made sense to someone who doesn't have a medical background. His general demeanor actually brightened my day a bit because it was so upbeat, which is refreshing! They were also quick and efficient to get me in and seen, which is always appreciated. Highly recommend!

First time visit. Appt 1:15. Arrived at 1. Filled out a few papers. Called to exam room at 1:50. Short interview took place and 5 minutes later an xray taken. Xray took 5 minutes. Dr came in at 2:50. I almost left, was ready to walk out.

One of the best doctor office experiences I’ve had in the district. Clean and organized office, great friendly and helpful receptionist. Same for the health assistant and x-ray support. Dr. Svoboda was incredibly friendly, helpful, verythorough and listened to all of my concerns. Didn’t rush through at all. Definitely recommend! It’s a bit hard to find office so call for directions.

As an RN who has spent time working in both a busy hospital and in an outpatient setting, I was wowed by the experience today. I was seen immediately, asked many questions and was encouraged to explain my condition, and wasthoroughly assessed. By 10 minutes into the appointment, DR. Svoboda was able to identity where my pain was originating from and identified a plan that was more specific than just the standard “go to PT.” The front office desk was also professional, friendly, and efficient. I will certainly be back.

As an African American woman I am apprehensive about seeing non-African American physicians. Generally, I find that my concerns are not heard and my experiences are invalidated. I am preached at and second guessed about my health concerns.My experience with Dr. Svoboda was the exact opposite.Dr. Svoboda was excellent. He listened. He answered questions. He was very personable. He was non-judgmental, yet direct. I experience nothing but patience and understanding with Dr. Svoboda. He knows his stuff! I'll see him again, although I hope I don't have to!

The doctor picked up immediately on my multiple back issues as well as treating the broken arm I received in a fall. He operates out of a place whose name (MedStar Health Orthopedic and Sports Center) suggests they only do sportsmedicine, but they were very happy to help me, a 60 something, non-athletic type. Really glad I found him.

He was very knowledgeable, but not condescending. He was not eager to perform surgery for my injury, which is great. Some doctors see dollar signs with the prospect of surgery, but this was not the case with Dr. Svoboda.

It took quite a while for me to actually see Dr. Svoboda. However, once I was seen, his exam was very thorough and he was committed to determining the source of the injury. Additionally, Dr. Svoboda understood how important it isfor me to get back to running, and thus recommended a Physical Therapy office that specializes in athletes. As a runner, I am happy to have found a doctor who is committed to keeping me active.
