Ratings for Dr. Neda Hashemi
The front desk is just plain rude. They're always giggling and talking amongst themselves and even when you make an appointment with them they give you an attitude. This has been going on for a while. So clearly even with the complaints, this has not been addressed. Dr Hashemi is great if you can get an appointment with her. You have to wait at least 1-2 months and even then she may be pulled to the hospital so she may not even be there.
Neda Hashemi takes least amount of interest in patients. yes she is polite and sweet to talk to but does that really fix a patient? I was not comfortable asking her any questions and would not get any straight answers. Although I used her for my first pregnancy but would not recommend her at all. On the day of my delivery, her midwife Tracy was attending to me and guess what? While I was in labor, Tracy had to go out with her friends for four hours! My nurse had to make several phone calls to Tracy to show up in the hospital. Then she started waiting for another standby doctor(whom I had never met before) to come in to do the stitches. It was a horrible experience. If you are pregnant, please go to a practice with atleast three doctors so that you can see each one of them during pregnancy and at least one of them will make it on the D day. Instead of working around your labor/delivery, this office tries to time your delivery and labor to fit their schedules. Please avoid.
This practice used to be good a decade ago, but it has gone down since. She is a nice person, but like the reviewer below, I agree that she claims to have said certain things which she later denies (or vice versa). The office is way too crowded, and I agree that the front desk staff are unprofessional (giggling, whispering, etc.). The only person who truly seems to care and put in effort is the nurse (I think her name is Marlene). Overall, very "meh".
I have both positive and negative experiences with Dr. Hashemi. I begin seeing her this year due to infertility - I could not get pregnant. I asked her what I should do, and she said, “I don’t know what do you think? Do you want to try clomid?” I was startled due to the lack of confidence. However, a pro is that she did encourage me to go through the routine tests that my previous doctor missed. She also urged my husband to get a sperm test, which I appreciated. I was having a hard time getting him to get a lab test, so she suggested we do a post coital test under a microscope in her office. She warned me that it would not be accurate. However I was shocked when she stated that she found no sperm and maybe he got a vasectomy. This was very disturbing – talk about starting an argument with my husband when I got home! We finally went to a lab and found out that he in fact had sperm, just a low count. I then scheduled another appointment with her and told her he had sperm and she said, “I told you so”. I was thinking, “what??.. no you didn’t!” She then said that there is nothing she can do for us, and that we need to see a fertility specialist. My husband began a separate organic health treatment and I became pregnant the next month. Unfortunately, it ended in a miscarriage. Two months later I was pregnant again and went in for blood testing at Dr. Hashemi’s office. Her and her never called me back with the results, I had to call them. I found out that it ended in miscarriage again, but she never called me to schedule a follow-up or consultation to help me understand what was happening! Overall, I feel that Dr. Neda is a good OBGYN in terms of servicing women without complications, but she doesn't seem very skilled in consoling or educating patients having issues. I am now going to see another doctor who can better educate me on why I am now having miscarriages and can better respond to my questions. My overall experience was weird. Another downside is that I heard the staff members giggling while on the phone with a patient; and they even swapped the phone so the other could hear the patient. This happened right in front of me; pretty unprofessional!
Dr. Hashemi is caring, compassionate and easy to relate to. I trust her 100% and always feel like I'm in incredibly capable, loving and skilled hands. The fact that she has THE busiest practice in the area is an indicator of her exceptional ethics, skill and compassion. I have horrid pregnancies and she's always 100% helpful. Her patient's loyalty speaks for itself. Without hesitation, I recommend Dr Hashemi and her team! ---Mari Estrada, Centreville
