Location and Directions


They say first impressions last. Well, for me that’s true because I’m never going back after resolving my medical matter. First of all I was not greeted with a smile from the intake person nor did anyone have pleasant dispositions. So, I was only left to assume that they did not like their jobs. Maybe that’s not a deal breaker for you but, it’s a deal breaker for me. I think that people who work with sick people should, in the least, have a pleasant disposition, even if they have to fake it. Secondly, I was seen by a nurse practitioner instead of a doctor. She introduced herself by letting me know that she was better off than me, which I took as being inappropriate. After I informed her that I could be better off than she was, she remained pleasant while cleaning my wound and stitching me up. Before leaving, I asked for antibiotics to keep my wound from being infected, she did not prescribe me any nor give me any to take home. Needless to say, I had to return to have my wound checked, which resulted in another bill. The patient liaison person told me to call her when I get the bill so that she can delete it. There is more that I can say, but I won’t. On a good note, the wait time was not long. However, now I know why! (3 weeks ago)

I suggest insurance companies or some authority to investigate the age of the medical equipment employed in imaging. Secondly train doctors and nurses to respect patients when they seek answers. Bulldozing their opinion or scientific wild ass guesses on patients is not the way for Inova group. Train your radiologists in communication skills with a sense of responsibility towards their job, have some kind of metrics by which you can gauge and discipline your doctors. substandard services on the whole , this hospital is a monopoly in the region. Highly not recommend this hospital or their doctors. (3 weeks ago)

We just had an awesome experience at the Inova Alexandria Hospital Emergency Room today. My husband had a kidney stone and they took us back immediately upon arrival. Everyone from the attendants to the doctors were friendly, professional, and efficient. The facility was clean and they had us in and out of there in under 2 hours - - that included the initial exam, Cat Scan, administering meds, writing prescriptions, and all associated paperwork. It's nice to know this facility is so close in case we need them again. It will be our first choice. (3 months ago)

I delivered my baby girl in Inova Alexandria. I should give 5 stars to labor and delivery unit (second floor) as everyone was very professional and polite. And what is more important, both my baby and me are healthy and happy. We had an amazing experience. However, I cannot say the same about the postpartum unit (third floor), as our experience there leaves much to be desired. First, the staff there completely disregards patient’s needs and requests to be left alone for a while. They claim to have “quiet hours” where they are not supposed to disturb you but they still do. They don’t care if you have “do not disturb” sign on your door and enter without knocking. But secondly, the most frustrating thing for me was the job done by “lactation consultants” there. My baby lost more than 10% of her body weight upon leaving the hospital and we were struggling for the first couple of days upon leaving. Inova Alexandria claims to have certified lactation consultants who are there to help you. I had them come twice during our 3 days stay there, went to lactation class and yet they were useless. They are just following standard approaches/rules without really listening to your needs and keep encouraging you to have your baby fed every time she makes noise and scare you about using pacifiers. They didn’t care to listen to my concerns that my baby can not latch properly. Luckily, after leaving the hospital we reached out to breastfeeding center in dc and they were extremely helpful. My baby is 3 months now, she gained lots of weight, can nurse really well, I never had to use formula and it would have been a real disaster if I kept listening to these “lactation consultants” from Inova Alexandria.

I was in town for the weekend visiting family from another state when I had abdominal pain, which turned out to be symptoms of a kidney stone. The first visit, they gave me some opioids and told me that the stone wasn’t big enough yet to qualify for surgery. Fair enough. 36 hours later, even the pain medication they gave me couldn’t suppress the pain from the stone that had finally started moving. I went back to the same hospital, hoping that my previous visit would speed things along for this one. The doctor asked for the nurse to do an ultrasound of my bladder. The nurse had never used the ultrasound equipment, and the person the nurse called for assistance also seemed very inexperienced on the equipment. I know this because they openly figured out how to use the equipment standing over me and in front of my partner while I was writhing around in pain. Not very confidence-inspiring. Later, I got a scan from the actual ultrasound technician; didn’t know where she was this whole time. On my first visit, I was prescribed Percocet for the pain. Second visit, I got lidocaine in the ambulance, then morphine in the hospital, then a shot of Fentanyl. I left with a prescription of more Percocet—all because the doctor preferred that I pass the kidney stone “naturally.” Surgery was not an option either time, even though I am aware that there are non-invasive or outpatient procedures that can break up or remove a stone. If anyone wants to know why there is an opioid epidemic in this country, know that in 36 hours over two visits, I received four types of painkillers. I’m flying back home today; I expect to get a big bill, and am already planning on raising some hell when it arrives. Also, what’s the point of having a cafeteria if it closes before 8?
