Dr. Chirunomula was great she made me feel very comfortable and went over my general medical history and went over what my current concerns are and helped my current problem and came up with a future plan on how to follow up. There was also a LapCorp in the office to do blood work that day. The only issue I had was with the medical assistant, who did not know of my very common chronic medical condition. When I explained it to her for the notes, she still didn't understand and asked me to spell it, then asked me several more times. Then eventually she had me write it down, then had me write down all my medications, which I already had to write down once before for the chart, a few minutes before but she couldn't find. It made me very nervous about the office as a whole, being as this was my first visit, but Dr. Chirunomula came in and dealt with my concerns and made me feel very comfortable.
I have had a couple of visits. I would prefer for my primary care doc to be one stop shopping to also address GYN care like pap smears and breast checks/mammogram referrals and it doesn't seem that she does those. So FYI if you are seeking primary care to include GYN care. Parking meters right by the door take credit and coins...$3 per hour. I don't know if I have found my best fit primary care doc yet...medical options over here aren't abundant and I tend to go to Alexandria VA for my and my family's medical care but it is convenient for the usual blood draw/lab work, say ahh, listen to heart, blood pressure check, weight check type of visit.
Dr. Brantz is great! This is my second year seeing him for an annual check up and I would recommend him to anyone. The only issue was my Zocdoc appointment did not show up in their system. I had to wait over 35 minutes but Dr. Brantz was able to squeeze me in between appointments. Call the office instead of booking through Zocdoc.
