Hello! Anyone have recommendations of a good OBGYN in the Fairfax area? I don’t have a gender preference but definitely would like someone experienced because I expect complications with my age and genetic stuff etc. I will be cross posting across other threads too.

My wife had our first child a few years ago with NOVA Group for Women (office near INOVA Fairfax). All the doctors were great and the office runs pretty smooth. We have some other friends (including an MD and RN) who also use the practice and have had really positive experiences too.

Capital women's care is amazing and they have two offices in Fairfax. One is in Greenbriar and the other is near prosperity. They deliver and do surgical out of INOVA Fairfax. I started with them when I was diagnosed with PCOS and I've had two babies with them, an ovary removal, and had to have a d&c. They are amazing and super professional and empathetic. I recommend them to everyone. They're also the doctor's that teach the obgyn residents out of Fairfax. I wouldn't have my babies if it weren't for them.

I’ve also used Greenbriar for years and always found them to be very knowledgeable, professional and kind. Would recommend Dr. Shin!

If you don’t mind gender and don’t mind driving into DC I have had literally the best OBGYNs. One is Dr. Ronald Paul (no not THAT Ron Paul) who is not doing obstetrics anymore since he’s older, but was a great gyno. Then Dr. Brendan Burke who Dr. Paul recommended is my new OBGYN since I am pregnant and needed the obstetrics part of it. Both of them are so nice and their office staff are great and I feel like they really listen to me!

Columbia Fertility if you need a specialist - Dr Abbasi is wonderful and the other doctors in her practice are great too. Also Northern Virginia Women’s - Dr Kendall Adams and Dr Borelli are fantastic. Big fan of their other obgyns.

I would avoid Women’s First in Reston. Bad experiences there of them not listening to my health concerns.

Thank you for the recommendations everyone! I am going to try to schedule something with capital this coming week!

Thought: When you see diversity of skin color as the most critical factor you miss out of diversity of experience and ideas. Quite often these overlap, but there are a lot of people out there like JD Vance who come from poor white roots, but because of their skin color they’re assumed to have some magical privilege bestowed upon them by society. Likewise, wealthy people of color are lumped in with their less affluent counterparts. We’re so quick to look at skin color and see the sum (cont’d)

Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..." It really comes across as tone deaf and completely patronizing. I appreciate the efforts to diversity (albeit forced), but Partners really need to learn how to not be so supercilious in the approach. You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.
