Terrible! Unprofessional staff and physician. Dr. Gurney did not care about concerns I had on my face and back. Burned 3 places on my face and charged me for "surgical' procedure. I was in and out of the office in 10 min. yet was overcharged for this service. Attempted to make Monty payments but check was sent back and now I am in collections with an attorney in Fairfax increasing my bill by 18%!

I was able to get an appointment the same day as my call. Dr. Gurney identified my issues and treatment needs immediately. His experience and knowledge was evident. I was in and out in 10 to 15 minutes. Pricing was not applicable since it was a specified insurance co-payment.

I went to doctor gurney about my son's acne problem., and at first glance it was easy to get an appointment to go see him, so that should have been a red flag for me. The treatment outcome was Acutane.

Doctor Gurney inspires confidence. He quickly diagnosed the problem, stepped me through his reasoning, and treated the issue. He took extra time to answer questions and allow my daughter to calm down.

Description of Work
My 15th month old daughter had a severe rash. The administrative staff was very to the point and professional, able to schedule an immediate appointment. This is my third experience with the office and the staff is always professional and always able to schedule for the same day (very lucky on our part)
