Washington Cancer Institute: what do users think?


Obianuju Efobi: The nurses are very nice but the pharmacy takes so much time to get the infusion bag ready. You need to include 3hrs in addition to infusion time.

Larry Howard: Some of the finest clinicians and nurses in the country. Works with in house and remote specialists from around the country to tailor care for the individual patient. Inpatient facility shows it’s age but the chemotherapy ward has attracted and maintains a staff second to none. When your oncologist calls you on the weekend to discuss your latest test results, you know it’s not just a job and you aren’t just a number. Complaints? Slow WiFi and inpatient food is not the best. Billing never seems to sort out secondary insurance until the second try.

M Reaves: Old facility that I hope I never have to visit as a patient. Typical big city hospital that deals more with volume than high quality care. Doctors have too many patients to efficiently manage.

Virginia Cancer Specialists - Fairfax: what do users think?


P S: I go to their Reston office. Care and customer service has been consistently great. The lab technicians are extremely skilled.
Response: Thank you for leaving such a kind review! We feel privileged to be trusted with your treatment. We look forward to continuing to care for you throughout your healthcare journey.

Kimberly Parekh: Dr Denduluri is extraordinary as an oncologist. She has a high level of competence and is very knowledgeable about upcoming medications and clinical trials. She sits on ASCO and is very well connected with other influential oncologists. She also publishes research which is very unusual for an oncologist out of a research hospital. She is also very collaborative and willing to work with you. I once worked with her in changing the dose of a drug, based on information gleaned at a cancer conference. She is also extremely responsive. I hear many stories from other patients who do not have regular contact with their oncologist and that is definitely not the case with her. Cancer is not easy, but having her on my side makes it all the more manageable. I am very fortunate to have her as my oncologist.
Response: Thank you for leaving such a kind review! We feel privileged to be trusted with your treatment. We look forward to continuing to care for you throughout your healthcare journey.

Toshinori Yagi: On following up and replying with Suzanne Hope's review below, the whole management perspective of running a hostpital and managing people is completely messed up. The lab and behind the scene technicians are very short staffed (hearing directly, and no wonder why the employees are leaving constantly) and not taken care of. Bad management causes stresses and delays in performances which is cause of lack of care and mainly being short staffed, and yay ignoring about it. If you guys are (I hope not) considering a cost saving through keeping it short staffed, good luck! and your bad investment choice will reveal in the long term. Both the front line doctor/nurses and back end lab technicians deserve credits to serving the customers. Hospital is still a business, then you better do a much better job in managing people. Yes, there are bad and good doctors, and there are bad and good supporting roles, but I'm talking in general majority level for specific Virginia Cancer Specialist centers. The nature of work, is really saving people's lives. Please do a better care on communication, staffing, management, and just over all to outside and inside people around this place.
Response: Your feedback is very valuable to us and we appreciate you sharing this concern. Please know that a positive patient experience is extremely important to us and we take feedback like this very seriously. Our goal is to provide excellent patient care and customer service at every single visit. If you are a patient, and you would be willing to discuss this in more detail with our team, please call our Executive Director, at (703) 208-9393. We would appreciate the opportunity to discuss this with you directly, as we are always looking for ways in which to improve our service.

songdreamer142: The personnel at Virginia Cancer Specialists have always been friendly and willing to help in whatever ways I have requested. The nursing staff, in particular, has been top notch in my view. The nurse practitioners are thorough and professional, the infusion nurses are knowledgeable and caring, and the research nurses are terrific.

deechuck: I had gone in for a blood test; Belinda drew my blood -terrific! Then I needed the aransep shot. New person, Gloria administered the injection -nearly painless! She is the best I’ve ever had! I would like her to be my nurse every time -yay!

Suzanne Hope: I would give 5 stars if my review were based solely on the doctors, nurses and NPs, they are great. However, this review is based on both the absolute incompetence of the lab and, worse IMO, the absolute lack of caring that they have about the problem at hand. Their attitude has been "shrug, move on." No less than 6 times over the past few years has the lab "lost" my blood, dropped it or simply don't know what happened. In March, they shipped my labs to an out-of-network provider. When I found out, I called them and they said no to worry, they had a pre-authorization to use that lab. It is now October, the situation is NOT resolved and they blatantly lied about the pre-auth. On Monday, I went in for another round of tests. I spoke to the lab tech and told her they could not use the lab they had been using, it was out-of-network and they had to use an in-network lab. She went and spoke to her manager, came back and told me no problem. She tossed the labels, made new ones, changed the lab in the system ALL IN FRONT OF ME. Yet, I received a call this morning saying that oops, they had accidentally sent my bloodwork to the out-of-network lab. Seriously? How in the world did this happen? No one knows, and worse, they can't seem to grasp what a problem this is. It's hard enough dealing with chronic cancer and I have to deal with this as well? I have to take so much time off work and now even more due to simple incompetence. I ask to speak to someone about the problem and no one knows exactly who I need to speak with or "there's no one available." I rarely leave bad reviews but seriously, managing a chronic illness shouldn't be a full-time job. They are an oncology office, they should have some semblance of humanity. Instead, the administration there is bored, cold, callous, uncaring and incompetent. If it were me, I'd fire every last one of them.

Debbie Namugayi: The doctor was okay though the nurse recorded my medical history incorrectly. But it was really strange that after my appointment no one walked me back to the front desk, I was walking in circles and had to flag down a random person that looked like they worked there and tell them I was lost. It’s not a huge office but it’s still a maze to get out of, poor costumer service.

Roman Berger: Went here back in June to get a genetic test done because my mother was diagnosed w breast cancer and was told that her children qualify for a test that would be fully covered by insurance. Three months later I get a bill for the full amount. Called my insurance and they said that VCS should have labeled this test as "preventative" and they did not. I called VCS multiple times and after about the tenth time, their biller picked up the phone and told me she will look into it. A month later, I still have not heard back and cannot reach them for the life of me. Got another "final" bill in the mail today. What a nightmare this experience has been. Mind you the only reason I took the damn test is because Dr. Reed said it was fully covered under ACA.

Kimberley Cetron: Long wait times, inconsistent care. Shout out to Janice who helped me with some very complicated scheduling this morning, nurse Christine, and Mildred in the lab. They make things easier:)

Shannon Lynne Turner: Very professional and kind physicians (especially Dr. Raymond Wadlow!) Awesome beverage service.

Inova Schar Cancer Institute (Dept of Fairfax Hospital): what do users think?


Josie “Girl Tech Mafia” Romero: Very nice staff and the office was clean but good has a facelift. It was not particularly notable and interactions with receptionist and doctor were fine but the patient coordinator/nurse truly stood Out. Very intelligent, even funny during a very difficult time in someone’s life and that is quite admirable!

mody ndiaye: Today was my second time at this place, and its always nice and clean, due to covid-19 they will check you temperature 🌡 before entering the building. My visit was to the cancer and blood disorder section, and the nurse drawing my little princess 👸 blood was really got at what she was doing, and my princesses doctor is very nice and she always give us very informative answer, and she's always asking us if we have more questions. Doctor Cathy is really great with kids as well 👏 .

Neveen Abel-Jalil: Have been a great facility throughout my 5 months treatment anywhere from the friendly staff, to clean bathrooms, to availability of supplies, and parking. Most significantly to note, is the wonderful nurses that have been nothing short of outstanding in their attention to detail, care, and knowledge. Wouldn’t be this positive or rested without them. I highly appreciate the work they do. Really recommend this facility.

Barbara Leary: I underwent 7 weeks of radiation therapy in June-July 2019 as a follow-up to brain surgery to remove an aggressive meningioma. My neurosurgeon referred me to Dr. Samir Kanani at Inova Schar. I did plenty of due diligence on my own, and then went with the recommendation. Dr. Kanani took plenty of time to explain my options, share the pros and cons and potential side effects of different approaches, and then put together a plan. He's a radiation nerd in the very best sense, with a keen interest in current research and a strong commitment to putting together the best, most precise treatment plan. And he has a personable, congenial manner with patients. I liked and trusted him immediately, and throughout treatment my trust never wavered. I felt very well cared for by Dr. Kanani, and the entire staff at the Institute: from the receptionists to the nursing staff to the technicians. A year later, and there is no sign of the tumor recurring. So far so good. But if I ever need treatment again, I'll be going back. Highly recommend.

Madelein Montes: While the Inova Schar cancer institute boasts an impressive new facility, new technologies and a comprehensive approach to cancer care, sadly it seems to have been at the expense of a commitment to quality patient care and attention. So far, the actual care and attention to existing patients has been disappointing. As someone who has a family member that has been receiving chemotherapy with Inova for over a year, the change in individualized patient care for us dramatically shifted once the infusion clinics and doctors offices moved to Inova Schar. Previously, the attention and care infusion patients would recieve was exceptional. From the friendly front desk staff, to the nurses and NPs who would stop into the room every few minutes to check up on patients and their families—the care and commitment to the patient was evident. Now, the same great nurses and staff are there, but sadly the increase in patient load has affected this once amazing patient care experience. The old infusion clinics would have about 15-20 rooms with patients to look after, but now, with the infusion floor at Schar, there can be easily 50 patients in rooms at one time. Sometimes you don’t even get a small room! You are put on a chair in the middle of the infusion clinic to receive your chemo. There is now less privacy, attention to detail, and care on the infusion floor. There is also an odd feeling of isolation throughout the halls and floors of Inova Schar; one that makes you feel increasingly like a number instead of a patient. The same lack of individualized patient care is seen when trying to do a simple task like trying to contact your medical team. Previously, patients could call their doctor’s office directly, easily speak to a nurse or get a call back. Now, calls are diverted to a call center first, and it is virtually impossible to speak with a nurse without a ridiculous hold time. Long gone are the days of simply calling your doctors main office or direct line to speak to someone. This beaurocratic process puts an unecessary burden on patients who are already going through so much and makes it easier for some to fall through the cracks. The smaller clinics and practices provided the quality of care one would expect a cancer patient to receive, but now, I’m not sure if that’s the same goal for Inova Schar, especially for existing patients.

TVI COMS: Completely inaccessible to persons who use public transit. The large facility is set back off Gallows and there are no sidewalks connecting the institute to Gallows. The drive off Gallows takes you through a wooded area. Those who don’t drive and have to use public transit cannot safely get to the buildings. Awful for those who are trying to stay active and independent by walking and taking the bus, or those who have no choice. INOVA did not put any bus stops in the facility and the 401 that runs off Gallows cannot be accessed because the long road has no accompanying sidewalks. Truly heartbreaking that Inova would exclude people from cancer treatment who rely off public transit or need to walk there. Clearly, this place is meant for those who only drive and not those of us who, due to our medical situation, cannot drive. Poorly planned and discriminatory. If you have to get radiation everyday, you will spend a lot on rides coming here. I ended up going to a different radiation facility about four miles from Inova that was accessible and my oncologist there said it is so important to get out and walk everyday. His office is on bus lines, with sidewalks to his building, and does not exclude those who don’t drive. Very sad Inova does not have the same mind set for equal access.

Jac S: The Schar Cancer Institute is a beautiful building with all the bells and fluff; however, they have bankers hours. As a medical facility one would think, the hours of operation would be a 12-14 hour period (7am-7pm or 7am-9pm) everyday of the week. It's a bit disappointing

ermias merid: Beautiful building with enough parking space.

Susanna Crouch: Prestine new facility to launch in Q1/2 2019, campus is gorgeous and provides a truly cutting edge approach to cancer care. The CEO of the facility clearly has a passion for patients and a mission to provide innovative care with translational biomarker/genetics focus to direct treatment options. Patients can expect this facility to be a comprehensive approach with all functional capabilities on one campus (lab, imaging, surgery, genetics testing, office visits, patient navigation, specialty pharmacy etc)

Nadia Khokhar: The med assistants at this practice are great!

Tyler Jachetta: I really don't know if I can think of a resource that has been more useful to me in my journey with cancer and cancer treatment. The Young Adult Cancer Survivorship support group and programs are so, so, so good, the staff have become tireless travel companions as I learn to navigate my life. I can't thank the staff and volunteers here enough. There aren't enough stars, there really aren't.

Robert Weinstein: This is a wonderful little gallery currently with an over the top exhibit

Ellen O'Hanlon: I can't say enough good things about this amazing place, the people and what they offer!!!

Dayna Rowden: Great place with a great mission.
