i went to NOVA Med Group in Ashburn this week to get a remedy for this terrible respiratory infection i have been experiencing for two weeks now. i usually see Dr. Noelle, who has always been good in the sense that he is always courteous, sincere, and comprehensive in his consultations. This time, however, i had taken an appt with another doctor because she happened to be the only one available and i had needed a same day appointment. the reasons for which she was "the only one available" when other doctors were booked have since become apparent. Her name was Dr. HOLLY HARRIS. Not only did she repeatedly judge me for my lifestyle throughout my appointment, but she also at times mocked me in front of a residency student who was shadowing her. She talked to me in a condescending manner and, when I asked her if i may be in need of antibiotics as I was coughing up yellow, infected mucus, she laughingly said to the shadower "some people never listen" as if i weren't even there. it was the most blatant form of disrespect i have encountered from a professional in several years. she then told me to go try some Mucinex, an over the counter med, and prescribed me to cough syrup. Then rushed out the door. Horrible MD. I don't know how she made it to be a doctor but it doesn't reflect well on NOVA Med's hiring standards. Today, I am still very sick and have since made another appointment for Dr. Noelle, who will most likely listen to my symptoms and help me get better, instead of mocking me and telling me to take medicine from the grocery store and wasting my money, time, and well-being.
