Ratings for Dr. Augustine A. Dolcich
Dr. Augustine is very personable if you go along with what he has to say, however that's where it ends!!! He is always late.... sometimes by an hour! If you ask him a question about a condition or a specific blood test during a well visit ( AKA Physical ) that the office charges almost $900,. he will refuse to answer and tells you to make another appointment. However he has ample time to tell you that the operation for his office is very expensive! and other unnecessary or unrelated conversation to your concern.
I love Dr. Dolcich. He is an amzing doctor and the practice is without a doubt the best run practice I have ever been to. He is an amazing doctor, very knowledgeable, and a wonderful person to boot! I recommend him and Town Center Family Medicine to everyone I know. No one is unhappy with the practice. My older son also sees Dr. Bowers (who is just as great as Dr. Dolcich) and my younger son sees Dr. Ganvert (again another wonderful doctor). You will not be sorry if you go there.
I agree that Dr. Dolcich is extremely knowledgeable and helpful when doing a diagnosis. But I have found the bedside manner and lack of help on several medical have driven me to find another GP. Without too many details, during a time that I needed very important help on an issue, I was told I would have to find my own help and deal with it on my own. Needless to say, I have found a new GP. Still, as stated above, his skills as a diagnostician are excellent. Too bad about the rest.
One of the best PCP in Reston. He is very caring and knowledgable. Takes time to explain things. Cares about you as a person. My husband and I have gone to him for over 10 years and have never had any bad experiences. He does sometimes run late, but I think he has improved on this. The staff call with results and send results in the mail as well.
As others have commented, wait time can some time be a little longish, but it's well worth waiting for Dr. Dolcich, as he is EXTREMELY knowledgeable and caring, and he takes the time to explain things in detail. He's also honest enough to tell you when he's not sure what the problem is, and, unlike some other doctors, has always been willing to take the time to figure things out.
During my last visit with Dr Dolcich, I told him the symptoms I had been having off and on for years, but had finally become too much to ignore. He said to me, "I bet you have a wheat allergy". He did the tests, and thats what came back. I have since met people with wheat allergies who went from doctor to doctor for years before being properly diagnosed... When I tell them my story they don't believe it. One person even said, "Who the heck is your doctor? House?" (referencing the TV show). I'm lucky he diagnosed me so quickly.
