Dr. Iler visited with my ailing Mother at Sunrise at Hunter Mill even though he was not yet her primary doctor. We are eternally grateful for his helpful assistance before making his rounds.

Best family doctor ever, patient's health comes wayyyyy first then money for him. He doesn't solely believe in chemical medication, in fact he is a perfect combination of aromatic and allopathic physician.

Dr. Iyer addressed all my mother's concerns patiently and with a lot of humor! He scolded my mother for taking medication she shouldn't have, but more like the concern of a family member than chastisement! He puts her at ease by speaking to her in Tamil!

I visited this doctor las year..never seen a doctor in that rush before..he barely spent 2 mins with me... he was rude as well. I was having some fungal infection in my skin and i explained him the whole situation that it's a chronic and I have already seen few doctors before whose prescritpion worked but it was not healed permanently. Without even analyzing the symptoms he took a piece of paper (unofficial) and wrote an on counter medicine for fungal infection which anyone could have used as first aid before consulting the doc. The strange part was when i looked into my health insurance account he charged my insurance company around $350 for spending two minutes with me. And yes he gave me next appointment next week it self which I cancelled.

I feel that she shouldn't be talking about my financial situation with how I'm in arrears out loud. I know you don't have a choice since it is a small waiting room, but show some some respect for the person who you're talking to by lowering your voice.

Ravi Iyer is an office. He is not a doctor anymore. He keeps changing the doctors who examine the patients. This does not mean Ravi Iyer is better than his interns. He mis diagnosed my viral infection as Chickenpox and allergic cough as Asthma.

Best Doctor EVER! show details Best Doctor EVER!
by Ryan Erin Jeffers on Jul 27th, 2013

I think Dr. Iyer is excellent. I am in my early 30's and have seen Dr. Iyer since I was 23. I am thrilled with his bedside manner. Dr. Iyer ALWAYS takes the time to talk about EVERY concern I have in depth. My favorite part about him is he respects my choice to always try helping and curing my ailments with very little medicines. He gives me CHOICE between prescriptions and homeopathic remedies. Granted, I am fairly healthy, so there has never been the need for serious medicines or surgeries, but it is great to be truly listened to. As for the office, I love that I can call up when I am truely getting ill and there is ALWAYS room for me if I am patient in the waiting room. I will take that ANYDAY! I am a school teacher, so although my tolerance is pretty high for colds and light sicknesses, Dr. Iyer always makes me feel like my concern is a priority.

Relative of an elderly patient show details Relative of an elderly patient

All ZERO rating. Ravi Iyer is a pallative doctor who will convince your family to put your elderly relative to a hospice care and will scare you to death his diagnosis inaccurately that your relative will live for only a week which is absolutely wrong. He is not an honest doctor and will never recommend to anybody. In order to submit this review it is required to put one * but the actual rating is 0000. ZERO ZERO ZERO.

Doctor's Response

We care for our patients literally from cradle to grave and we take this responsibility very seriously. We never give a definitive prognosis regarding life expectancy since the best that anyone can do is express such determinations as probabilities based upon what is known about the patients underling disease process. I am delighted in your case that Nature decided to prove the doctor wrong by giving your relative a longer life-span than estimated.

I found this doctor and staff caring, thorough, compassionate and very meticulous. The doctor personally calls you back with all the lab results within 5-7 days. If any labs are abnormal then he prefers you to return for follow-up management but otherwise I did not feel pressured by this office. The fact that Dr. Iyer is Chairman of the Dept. of Medicine at Reston Hospital also made me feel better about the quality of advice I was getting. Definitely would recommend this clinic to anyone.

According to me he is not a doctor, he is a Professional money maker.He is a Egoist person, never answer any question properly. He never spends time more than 1 minute and never listens. But he will try to give you an appointment every week to make more money.

I am sorry you feel this way... it appears that your grievance may have been based upon our request that you return for followup management and health education of your ongoing health issues... These matters cannot be handled by phone. It is not fair to you and it is not proper healthcare.

Doctor's Response

Coverage of any medical care is the determination of the insurance that the patient carries. In all my years we always tell patiuents that we do not control or determine what is covered and can only say that such and such service is frequently covered by most insurances. The health policy unfortunately makes such determination and will sometimes deny coverage even after initially saying that something is covered. It is the policy of the Iyer Clinic to work closely with patient and their insurer to facilitate such issues but we do not control the outcome of coverage appeals.
