've lived in NOVA for almost 30 yrs and have seen many Dr's in the area, but this is the worst Dr in NOVA. The front office staff is weird. The Doctor is even weirder. I visited this Dr. 2 times and both times the Dr spent a total of 2 to 3 minutes with me and each time It was a visit for a total body mole check!! After Insurance paid and I paid my copay I had a balance of $250. I explained that I needed to make payments on my balance. The office accepted my checks for 2 months then turned it over to an attorney. What a terrible greedy Dr. What office out there doesn't accept monthly payments?? Dr G is the worst out there and he will continue to get patients because there really is no other Dermo in the area. Fortunately he is getting up in years and will have to retire. Do yourself a favor, drive another 5 miles to see another Dr.

Where to even start... I read all the negative reviews and they are right in line with what I experienced. Rude staff! This is the worse Dr I've ever been to. I've been here maybe 3 times and the level of service only got worse each time. I thought.. maybe it was just a bad day for them but I should have stopped going after the first time. The last time I didn't even get my prescription even after trying to get it from them for over 2 months. Oh yeah.. I still had to pay for his 'time' even though I didn't get this prescription. Dr visit felt rushed. He does not take his time. No blood tests or anything else to verify that the prescription should be given to you. The very first time I went in for a retinoid cream but came out with a prescription for Accutane. He never took my blood tests to ensure it was OK. No blood pressure or anything else. He didn't explain the severe side effects of this medications. The Dr visit was probably less than 5 minutes. Go to a Dr that actually cares about you and is willing to spend time to get to know you before he starts prescribing you things that shouldn't be given out.

Stay away at all costs! He will give you pills with disfiguring side effects that will make you regret ever visiting this scam artist, felon, mutilator "dermatologist" . His course of mild teenage acne treatment involved multiple oral antibiotics such as (cipro, sulfas, doxy, amox) and generic accutane, which lead to me developing IBD ~6months to 12months later. His treatments eviscerated the joy and health of my life at the age of 19.
