I'd give zero stars if I could. I left work and meetings early. Race across DC. I arrive at 3:31 after calling ahead to say I'm running late. The front desk says sorry, you're ONE MINUTE too late! Your appointment is canceled. I waited 6 weeks for that appointment! Pathetic customer service. The woman was rude when I called to make my appointment. I should have known it wouldn't be any different when I arrived.

Definitely not a friendly practice. Overwhelmed with patients. Extremely long waits. They don't blink about wasting 2 hours of your time. Many of the doctors are condescending. Their primary concern is protecting themselves from lawsuits and making money. Your actual health and what is best for you, is a low priority. They will request unnecessary tests and try to force you on dangerous drugs and c-sections. They tried to force me to take blood thinners because of a genetic marker for blood clots that 1 in 4 people carry. I went to a blood specialist, hematologists, who said the blood thinner was more dangerous that the genetic marker. They still insisted that I should be a "high risk" pregnancy and take blood thinners. I delivered a perfectly healthy girl, no complications. Do not go here.

I have heard so many great things about Foxhall and was very happy as a regular pt, but since my pregnancy have had more interaction with the practice and a much harder time. From appts that were scheduled on the wrong days, to extremely unfriendly and unresponsive staff, to having to stop in three times to pick up one prescription, it has been a difficult experience. I was also given a diagnosis for a complication, only to be told that that diagnosis in fact did not exist and that they were uncertain as to what was the cause. Finally after sitting in the waiting room for an hour and begging Dr Beckerman to see me I got a referral to a high-risk group. When I finally got in I was told that I had not been properly diagnosed and that I had a premature rupture of my membranes. At this point I had been walking around this way for weeks despite constant calls to Dr Beckerman where he would tell me I was fine and my amniotic fluid was dangerously low. I was sent to Georgetown right away, spent three weeks on bedrest and my daughter came at 29 weeks. She passed away when she was six months old due to lung complications most likely caused by the fact that I had an infection for over a month before anyone did anything about it. I would NOT recommend this practice.
