Lots of folks interested in this topic:

“Dear PoPville,

I hate the idea of picking a random name off of a list when it come to doctors and being that reviewing doctors online hasn’t really taken off yet – I have no clue where to go to get basic care in Washington, DC. I was hoping we could get a thread going about great doctors in the DC area. If any readers have a pediatrician, internist, dentist, OB/GYN or any other awesome doctor that pops into their mind – it may be very helpful to others!”

Another asks:

“I’m kind of fed up with the lack of personal attention I receive from my current Primary Care Physician, looking for someone new, and wondering if you or your readers have any recommendations. I’m a male in my early 30’s and want to be sure I’m paying attention to things like blood pressure, etc that start to appear as you age. A downtown location would be nice for convenience, but I’d be willing to metro to someone who actually still believes in face time with patients and doesn’t just do blood tests and updates your prescriptions, which is what I currently deal with.”

Another reader asks:

“I’m looking for a doctor that accepts CareFirst, it seems like a lot of these doctors don’t accept insurance or HMO’s.”

We looked at some doctors here and dentists here. If you have any good recs for the readers above please say what type of insurance you use and location of their office.
