I haven't had a PCP since I left my pediatrician when I was 18. I rarely get sick and just quicklyrun into somewhere if I do. I saw Dr. Dinesh to get some prescriptions for an out-of-country trip next month. I loved that she wrote the prescriptions and explanations with me in the room instead of running out and doing it alone like most doctors. This helped save time and I was able to ask questions as she went along. She also offered prescription coupons, which was great. She was very kind, attentive, and did not rush me. I'll definitely be back the next time I'm in need of a doctor!

This was my first appointment with Dr. Dinesh. I felt like she was really listening to my concerns and was veryprofessional. Check-in was easy. The only thing that didn’t sit well with me was that they did not ask for a health history. They only asked me if I had allergies and if I was on medications. I feel like that’s pretty important to know about your patients

I was a bit terrified of going to see Dr. Dinesh today because I had started working out earlier this year, and I so far, I have lost a little bit over 20 pounds. However, when I got on the scale today before I saw Dr. Dinesh, I was at a weight completely different from what I thought I was, and I know that I had lost more weight than what was measured at the office. I was very disappointed because I've been making it a habit to work out for 4-5 days a week for 30 minutes a day at home with an exercise DVD, and I know that I've lost more weight because of how my large my clothes feel and how much I've been taking into account with watching my portions, adding more fruits and vegetables, drinking more water, etc. Other than that, Dr. Dinesh was very pleased with my progress. I'm just scared to come back in six months to see her again and the scale might work against me.

I had a follow up appointment with Dr. Dinesh today and it went very well. We had a very good exchange of information and ideas and I received sound, valuable advice on various specific and general health topics. I find that Dr. Dinesh is a terrific, skilled physician. Dr. Dinesh has a great ability to unearth details by simply observing, interviewing, and evaluating results of tests and exams. She listens attentively to her patients, has sharp analytical skills, and exceptional bedside manners. Although a traditionally trained physician, Dr. Dinesh is also well acquainted with non-traditional medicine, and can suggest alternatives to those who might benefit. The office and medical staff at the Chevy Chase office are extremely helpful, welcoming, and professional. The office is always kept clean and organized. I’m always seen on time and without delays.

As a new pt, the registration process was easy and short. I was seen past my actual appointment time but only about 10 mins. Dr. Dinesh is super friendly and makes you feel comfortable.

What a wonderful PCP! Dr Dinesh possesses the rare combination of competence and genuine compassion and kindness. She has a more holistic approach to medicine, and you’ll feel she views you as a person, not just another faceless patient as other MDs tend to do. Good access to care, and during the visit from check in to check out there was virtually no wait either. The physical environment could use some updates but nothing concerning. Only downside to this visit was the office staff (difficult to reach, disengaged, uninformed) and the practice appears to be working through some issues with their administrative systems. Maybe it was just an off day. Regardless this was a very small price to pay for the experience I had as a new pt with Dr Dinesh (and the clinical support staff too).

I needed a new PCP while it seemed like no one in the entire DMV area was accepting new patients. Going to a new doctor can make me suspicious after a particularly dirty and horrible experience I had a few months ago, but this practice is like being processed and treated by your friends. The intake nurse handled a technical glitch with my forms quickly and kept everything moving, and Dr. Dinesh saw me super quickly. I came in for extreme allergies but of course because I had an appointment was relatively under control in front of the doctor. She still listened to everything I had to say, gave me several options for treatment and I never felt rushed or pressured to go a certain route. Thank you!!

It was very nice and convenient to get the information needed to help with lowering my blood pressure. I just wish there was a way I can keep it low whenever I see the doctor or nurse practitioner because it always skyrockets up high! I'm very grateful for her help and advice, and I am very happy she takes great concern with my health.
