Dr. Asuncion has provided wonderful care to 2 of our offspring and my wife and I(?me). He listens to us and answers our questions. He refers us to the most capable and humanitarian doctors in Montgomery County. He gives us samples to try a new medicine before we get a prescription--just in case we have some adverse reaction. When there is a sudden illness, Carrie who handles appointments always squeezes us in--or offers us a chance to drive over to Poolesville to see Dr. Asuncion there.

I've been going to Dr. Asuncion for 12-plus years for everything from ruptured disks in an emergency situation, to respiratory infections, and annual physicals. He and his staff have consistently provided accurate diagnoses and reliable primary care to me and my family.

Oh hell no. I will never go back. He took a look at the problem and made a wild guess. Since he didn't sound very certain, I said simply Are you sure it's not something else? At which point, he got angry and said very condescendingly Did you go to medical school? I said, Of course not, I just want to be certain, that's all. He pointedly said, You annoy me. Given that it was my first appointment, I wasn't sure if he was joking or not. So, I tried to clarify, Wait, I just met you, what do
