Verified Patient Reviews
I felt that Dr. Hackney was dismissive of my concerns and didn't spend very much time talking to me about my health. She seems to know the bear minimum for her job and has no interest in learning any more, not even for the sake of her patients.
Staff is friendly and helpful. Dr. Robertson-Hackney is pleasant and happy to answer any questions I had during my appointment.
Everyone in the office was professional and pleasant to deal with.
I had a great first visit.All the ladies were very professional,pleasant and personable.
Very comfortable and professional environment
Dr. Robertson-Hackney was very friendly and professional. She was very thorough. Office staff very helpful as well.

The doctor is very patient, helpful and nice. Thank you.
I appreciated the professionalism and the amount of wait time. The doctor was friendly and made sure I understood what was said. Everything was smooth sailing. Thank you!
Warm, professional, thoughtful.
Staff were friendly and informative. So was the doctor. I was seen promptly and all of my questions and concerns were taken seriously.
Consistent, and I do mean consistent, high-quality care. I have been her patient for years and cannot think of any better OB-GYN in the DC-area.
The doctor provided prompt service and was very professional.
The only good thing was that there wasn't a long wait; The paper sheets on the bed was not changed from the previous client, I had to change it myself.
Great bed side manner ! Clean office
I always feel comfortable discussing a variety of topics related to health and relationships with this doctor.
She been my Doctor seen 2015 and she is amazing.
She was very professional and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looks by for a great doctor specializing in women care. I was very comfortable with her and her staff was very nice. The referral process For obtaining blood work and imaging was also smooth. The appointment went well and was very timely.
If you're a virgin it is best that you see another OBGYN. She was not gentle at all, and did not use any lubricant. She was in the process of doing a Pap smear and had to stop because it was very painful. Afterwards, I bled for a couple of hours and still felt a lot of discomfort. I have had some experience with other gynecologists and they were all very gentle and understanding so it was not my first time.
Office was not fully equipped with supposed but overall ok.
The doctor was professional, well informed and very personable. She made me feel comfortable right away and put me at ease. I have just relocated from another state where I had the same GYN for 30 years and couldn't imagine seeing a new one. Dr. Yolande Robertson Hackney won me over!
Wonderful doctor with a great sense of humor and welcoming personality!
Dr. Robertson-Hackney was great. Very personable but professional and efficient. She did a really good job of explaining what was going on in terms that were easy to understand without being condescending.
Office was clean. Staff was pleasant and professional. I saw Dr Simmons who was very kind & gentle. I am very pleased and will continue my GYN care here.
Rushed appointment. She seemed like she didn't want to be there, and lacked compassion. She brushed off my concerns and questions. Nurse took my vitals, it was over 120/80. I just realized after my research that was bad. Dr. Hackney didn't even bring it up as a concern during the appointment. I can't trust her with my health.
She was very patient and seemed very interested in my concerns. She was very pleasant and smart.
Firstly, the office was a nightmare to find - if you go here do not pull directions from this app. Front desk was nice enough. I brought a close friend to my appointment to be with me during my procedure (I was very nervous) & Dr. Robertson-Hackney had her leave the room almost immediately, saying that she would call her back in after we went through some basic history questions...only to NOT bring her back in & proceed with the procedure. I was very uncomfortable & the simple procedure was not conducted smoothly. Further, the sanitation practices were a bit questionable - after my procedure I was getting dressed & I noticed that the forceps which were used on/in me had been placed in an opening between the cushion and the base of the examination chair. I am not in the medical field, so I don't know what the protocal is for this sort of thing, but that didn't seem right. Needless to say, I will never go to this doctor or clinic again.
I scheduled my same-day appointment through ZocDoc, which confirmed, then stated I needed to hear back from their office before it was confirmed. I guess the office is only open half day, because I never received any messages from the office confirming the appointment. Actually, I called multiple times and couldn't get anyone on the phone and re-scheduled a later appointment to make sure I could confirm with someone before I drove an hour to the location from DC. The appointment was fine, the office was modern/new and completely empty (I was the only client there), but it still took about 15-20 minutes from arrival to seeing the doctor in-person. Maybe I was more conscious of time because I was the only person there. My biggest disappointment was that I took off from work to be there to resolve my issue, but my prescription was either never sent to the pharmacy by the practice or the pharmacy had a major issue with receiving the order from the practice, because it wasn't there when I arrived to the pharmacy. When I learned that they didn't have my prescription, I called the office multiple times, each time they were closed. I finally opted to speak to an after-hours rep in hopes of someone filling the prescription. That wasn't helpful - the rep can literally ONLY TAKES MESSAGES - and when the doctor on duty called back, she only left a message to say that I need to take my medication, which wasn't my issue. If I had meds to take, I wouldn't be calling - I need a doctor to ACTUALLY SEND THE PRESCRIPTION. Three (3) days later, I got a follow-up call from their office asking me to call the office back to resolve the issue that I already explained on their voicemail. Finally, today, 5 days later, I was able to speak with an actual person - the first time I could reach someone by phone since scheduling the appointment, who blamed the pharmacy for the issue. However, the practice had to "re-submit" the prescription for me to finally get it today. FORTUNATELY, my issue was not LIFE THREATENING, Lord knows what could have happened if it were. I hope this was an isolated incident and not the standard of this practice. I will revisit for my annual exam next year, at a closer location, and hope that it is a more positive experience. I have never in my 30 years visited a doctor's office who just didn't fill prescriptions...is this a normal thing?!
Dr. Hackney was professional and made me feel comfortable as this was my first visit with her.
Dr. Hackney is wonderful and quite pleasant. I was seen immediately and provided with all of the information I needed. Dr. Hackney has been my doctor for many years and would recommend her to anyone.
Excellent bedside manner. Very knowledgeable and personable.
She is a great doctor!! Very knowledgeable!
My experience with Dr. Hackney and her staff was great from signing-in to checking out. She is very kind, patient and knowledgeable. The atmsophere was very welcoming, and stress free. I found Dr. Hackney on-line Monday and I was able to schedule an appointment for Wednesday morning. She addressed my issue, provided her expert diagnosis and medications for the resolution and I was on my way. It was an overall first time good doctor visit.
She was professional and pleasant
I have been seeing Dr Hackney for several years and she very knowledgeable and patient. She answers all questions and addresses any concerns. The office is nice and comfortable. And the staff are nice as well.
Dr. Robertson-Hackney and her staff are always showing their professionalism and make me feel safe and well taken care of!
This was my first visit and I was extremely happy that I selected Dr. Yolanda Robertson-Hackney. I was the last appointment of the day, but I never knew it. Dr. Roberson-Hackney was very personable and confident. She immediately made me feel comfortable and this great customer service extended to her staff as well.
I absolutely love Dr. Hackney. I'm a first time mom to be at the age of 38 and she doesn't treat me as if I'm high risk. She conducts herself as if I'm at the average age of motherhood and that keeps my anxiety levels all the way down. I'm just so grateful for her being the strength of my medical team!
Personable and knowledgeable
I liked the convenience of the office and the ease of setting up an appointment. The staff at the office are fast, friendly knowledgeable. I was back talking to the doctor before I knew it. I was impressed as a first time patient. The doctor took the time to ask questions and was very friendly.
I saw a couple of doctors at this practice to address abdominal pain and was seen very quickly and received the vigilant screening and imaging I was expecting.
Great!! As always!!
I just can't say enough great things about the women who will help me deliver a healthy baby for my first time. Dr. Hackney asked me questions for her own clarity and even recommended some things that I TRULY appreciate her for. I can't wait to go back for my check ups whether it's Dr. Hackney or dr. Simmons they are just an amazing team of doctors that I TRUST
Dr Robertson-Hackney has good bedside manners. She is very professional and she makes you comfortable. Her staff is also very professional and they have good manners. The office was clean and the wait time was reasonable. Dr Robertson-Hackney gave me a really really good breast exam. I felt her pap smear was a bit invasive though. I had it done before and it wasn't so invasive. Also, the blinds did not close all the way in that exam room. I could see everything outside! But overall, she is a good and caring doctor.
She was very knowledgeable and direct. She knows her stuff! Plus, no long wait times to be seen or for prescriptions.
My wait time for my appointment was an hour. When I arrived, the lady at the desk stated I did not have an appointment. I showed her my appointment that I scheduled through ZocDoc, and she stated that it shows as cancelled from her end. Soon after, she stated she was looking at the wrong screen and saw a cancellation that had taken place a month ago. Needless to say, this upset me because they were not personable about it nor apologized at all. Never once did she say what was next, and if I would still be able to be seen due to her overlooked mistake, in which I found to be quite rude. After waiting for an hour, I was seen by the doctor. She was very nice, and appeared to be more than knowledgeable in her area of expertise. She apologized about the staff on their behalf, and my exam went very well. Never once did I feel rushed, and she was very gentle. I will possibly be back for a follow up, and hopefully my next time will be much better!
Great experience! She was excellent!
She was very nice and her staff had the decency to notify you that she was delayed, not just allow you to sit there and wonder.
Small place. I like it that way. Not all the bells and whistles of "boutique" practices. I like it that way. Professional and friendly. Didn't feel like a number.
Dr. Hackney was great. Super efficient, businesslike, and friendly. She was really helpful and gave me detailed information in a simple way that was not condescending. Be prepared! They ask you to fill out paperwork in addition to the ZocDoc paperwork. Worth the time filling out the ZocDoc stuff, but still arrive 20 minutes early to fill out paperwork and get in the queue. I arrived very close to my scheduled appointment time because I knew that I'd already filled out the paperwork and was a little taken aback by having to fill out more. The new paperwork took 15-20 minutes to fill out.
I made a last-minute appointment with Dr. Robertson-Hackney because I could not get in to see my primary care physician. Her staff was helpful and understanding, and the doctor herself got right down to business addressing my issue, reassuring me, and providing me with a quick solution. It was such a relief to be seen quickly since I had to taken time off from work. I'm hoping to have Dr. Robertson-Hackney as my provider from now on.
The wait time was a little long, but Dr. Hackney was very kind and informative. Will be back for sure!
It seems was quick and easy. Beautiful office space. Exactly what I needed.
I like how Dr. Hackney listens and answers questions. She was great!
Doctor Robertson-Hackney and her staff are very professional. I Was seen exactly at the scheduled time. Doctor Robertson-Hackney made me feel very comfortable, after visiting me she have me time for questions and gave me some helpful advises. I will indeed keep her as my doctor for the future!
Very professional! Love this office
Welcoming smile, very professional, made me feel very comfortable
I've had an appointment for two weeks and the office wait 12 minutes before my arrival to call me and say they didn't accept my insurance!?
It was my first time seeing Dr. Yolande and she was an absolute pleasure. She made me feel comfortable and welcomed as a new patient. I would highly recommend her and will definitely be coming back.
Great visit as always and very informative.
There was a considerable wait but once I was taken back it was quick. She asked me questions and ordered blood work. Most gyns in my experience don't bother much with that. But I like the thoroughness of the appointment. She also prescribed me meds that were much needed. I am happy with the outcome.
She was very knowledgeable and approachable , even volunteered personal experience.
Always a pleasure awesome Dr.
I was comfortable and relax and that is something I always look for in choosing who I would like to see.
She made me feel comfortable and as I shared with her my personal concerns she never once mentioned birth control. She agreed with my naturalpathic route and that's a first! I will be back to see her soon.
She's very comforting and simply amazing. Her bed side manner is A+++ I'm so glad that I have found a new GYN
it's very convenient to have the lab on site
My visit went very well. I bring a little humor, receive a little humor. We talk about other things, and keep it moving.
Excellent Customer Service from the Staff & Doctor
My first time experience was satisfactory, I was about 30 minutes early hoping they would take me sooner than my 3:45pm appointment, especially since I was the last appointment of the day. After my nurse took my blood pressure, weight and urine test, I was told to wait for the doctor which took almost another 15-20 minutes. And what really put the nail on the head, the phlebotomist I guess was new at her job and she tried 4 times to draw blood.
It was good as annual physicals go.
Dr. Hackney is thorough and patient. Her calm, confident demeanor is greatly appreciated.
She answered the questions that I needed to know and was very professional.
Dr. Hackney is kind, thorough, patient and professional. I give her my highest recommendation.
Dr. Hackney is the best of the best, and I will be her patient for life (or as long as she is in practice). My wait was a little longer than usual, but this was only because I had not been in the office for a while and needed to complete a few annual forms. Overall, I highly recommend Metropolitan Women's Group to any woman who is in need of quality, patient-centered ob-gyn care.
She is very personable. She reviewed my complete medical history,explained step by step her recommendations and personally provided all the referrals at the end of the visit.
My visit was great! Dr. Hackney has excellent bedside manner. She's easy to talk to and is a great listener.
I absolutely loved her. Staff was so helpful and friendly. She provided great recommendations as well.
Excellent.....and the staff was great !!
The office notified me that they not use or receive ZocDoc's information. So I had to fill out all the paperwork again. This happened to another patient as well. Also the doctor was not present at my location, but a different one. I saw Dr. Simmons who was excellent and knowledgeable.
My appointment overall went well at metropolitan women's group. Dr. Simmons was extremely knowledgeable and polite. The wait time was not the best at a little over an hour from check in to time with the doctor. As a result the time with her felt slightly rushed but she was VERY nice, gentle, and went over the questions I had in clear and concise way. I would recommend this doctors office and plan to go back in the future.
She was very professional and helped make me feel more comfortable. She was ver helpful in exiling all the procedures before and as she was doing them. The office staff were all very nice to deal with.
Dr Robertson-Hackney was very nice. Her staff was also very nice and polite. The Silver Spring office has a very small waiting area and it was very hot that day (for some odd reason). The doctor even commented on how hot it was in the office.
She was so warm and friendly! I felt comfortable and at ease. I will definitely be going back!
I was in and out within the hour and she addressed all of my concerns! Be prepared to pay for parking as there are only 2-3 free 2hr spots open out front.
It was awesome!!!
Staff was friendly and welcoming. Dr. Robertson-Hackney was very nice and knowledgable.
I was invited into the room fairly soon, but after changing into the gown, I waited for 20+ minutes without anybody telling me anything. Dr. Hackney was very nice and told me what she was doing as she did it.
I was able to book my appointment same day and I was able to get in there sign a few documents and I was able to be seen right away. The MD was very nice and answered all the questions I had. She is now my new OBGYN!
The dr was great! Office was clean. Staff was nice. Also she made me feel comfortable since she didn't have on the big white Dr jacket. She also gave me info that my last doctor did not and explained it better.
I loved Dr. Hackney! I was a new patient and I felt very comfortable and relaxed. I would definitely recommend her to others!
A good visit
Very friendly and helpful.
Dr. Hackney was very professional and sincere. It was a pleasure to meet her and I'm firing my previous gynecologist and choosing her!
She was very friendly and answered all of my questions !!!
She was very unhelpful. Didn't offer much advice or assistance with my issues like any other doctor would. The lady at the front desk was extremely rude and had an attitude. It was an uncomfortable enviornment.
A very likable person...she is my new gyn!
The staff here is personable and really takes time to ask and answer pertinent questions. I will say that this is the first time in a very long while that I felt comfortable(ish) during a pap smear and I feel that the Dr. really listened to my concerns. I would definitely reccommend!
Quick appointment. Doctor was very nice. Great job
I LOVED Dr. Robertson-Hackney. She is super sweet and makes an awkward experience feel comfortable. I am actually looking forward to the next time I meet with her. Only down side was the size of the waiting room is small and I was waiting for over an hour for an appointment that took 25 minutes tops.
Always a pleasure, knowledgeable and professional.
Dr Robertson-Hackney was a pleasure. She is very knowledgeable and very attentive. I am a new patient and will continue to go back to her. Be aware, though. When you fill out documents on zocdoc, you will fill out the same documents when you get there.
This was first visit. Dr. Robertson-Hackney was very professional and courteous. I felt very relaxed and confident that she was able to serve my needs. She recommend follow up treatments prior to my next visit. Thank you so much, I appreciated being made to feel understood with my health concerns.
She was great and very reassuring..
My apt was on Friday afternoon and the doctor rushed through the whole appt. Very rough when conducting pap smear (didn't give much warning of pain before she conducted it) and didn't explain anything about birth control pills but just told me to pick it up from a pharmacy nearby.
Dr. Hackney is very easy to talk to and is knowledgeable about her field of study.
She Made me feel very comfortable and she was very professional :)
The doctor was so attentive and knowledgeable. The most friendly staff I have seen for a while. Will recommended!
Very good and straight to the point.
It was fast and I didn't really have the time to interact with Dr. Yolande at all. I wish we had more time to converse so that I can ask her more questions or at the very least build a connection. I wouldn't come back here.
I've had the hardest time finding a female doctor (of any kind) that is courteous, professional, and will truly listen to my concern. Dr. Robertson-Hackney was all of those things. As a new patient, I didn't never feel rushed, my concerns were addressed, and thoughy health issue couldn't be solved immediately there, she made sure to give a temporary solution until my results came back.
it was great
Dr. Hackney was hands down the best doctor I have ever been to. She spoke to me like a real person, and not like a nice doctor to a person, it was like a conversation between friends and I had just met her. She made me feel very comfortable, answered all my questions with a clear and easy to understand answer. I have already recommended her to three of my friends. She is fantastic!
I LOVED the fact that I was able to complete all my paperwork online before I got to the office. It made the visit a lot quicker.
Dr. Hackney was very polite, professional, and friendly, I felt comfortable, this was my first visit but it felt like I knew her and her staff for a long time, the office, the exam roomand restrooms were spotless.
Dr. Robertson-Hackney is extremely conscientious, respectful and personable. Her entire staff is professional and efficient. I was very pleased with my experience and I finally have peace of mind after finding a doctor that is not only thorough, but actually cares about my health. It is very easy to make an appointment with her as you can make it online and fill out registration documents online. She is also very easy to talk to and I offer Dr. Robertson-Hackney my highest recommendation!
It went very well. She was professional and she was nice and friendly. I was very comfortable with her and the whole staff from the time I walked in the office.
Dr. Hackney was professional, answered all my questions and made me feel very at ease with everything. She engaged in conversation, which made me feel very comfortable.
