Dr Askew is a top notch cardiologist! He is a great listener and he explains things in great detail. I definitely recommend him for your cardiology needs. The only issue is the office staff; it is difficult to get someone on the phone without having to be on hold for 30 minutes or have someone hang up on you.

He is a very caring and knowledgable doctor. I am a young, pregnant woman with newly diagnosed POTS. I am so grateful that he was able to diagnose me and develop a treatment plan for me after one round of testing. My mom went with me to the appointment and we left raving about how much we liked him and how great of a doctor he is. I will be going back to him for all of my cardiology needs!

We've never met a doctor like Dr. Askew! We were in a health crisis, just a week before Christmas. We needed help and Dr. Askew was recommended to us. WOW! He really was a life saver! My husband felt like he was drowning in a new diagnosis of heart disease from a heart scan with a calcium score - which was nearly off the charts. Long story short - he agreed to see my husband & spent so much time with him. Just saw him for follow up. He was amazed at husband's progress, but he set the bar for him

Dr. Askew placed two stents in my heart in 2003. Fourteen years later, I've had no complications at all! Feeling great!

Dr. Askew took ample time to carefully review my medical history and test results. Then he explained in layman's terms what I was facing. He conveyed the seriousness of my situation without being alarmist. He outlined a treatment plan that left me feeling like I still had some control--and responsibility for--my own destiny. I would not hesitate to recommend this physician to any family member or friend.

I was very sick and very frightened when I first met Dr Askew at Mary Washington Hospital where I had been admitted for a variety of health issues. The primary concern was a growth on my tricuspid heart valve which was surgically repaired. Dr. Askew's warmth and genuine concern for my well being as well as his intelligence and professional manner soon calmed my fears and inspired my great confidence in the decisions he made for treatment. He and his team did a great job. Saved my life.

I have to tell you that Dr Askew really seems concerned about the patient. He takes time to listen and cares. You do not find those qualities this day and age. If only I could have him train my primary care physician I would be really happy!

Dr. Askew was very professional, he truly listened to my concerns and all the information I thought was relevant to my situation. He was not condescending and didn't speak in Medicalese. He asked questions to get a fully comprehensive picture of my situation. I am so relieved to find someone with the knowledge, ability, and desire to help me.

I have had 4 cardiologists in the last 6 years. Dr. Askew is the first one to listen to me and explain what is going on. I trust him completely. He is thorough and pro-active.

My mother-in-law has been a patient of Dr. Askew's for the past year. He recommended 2 stents to relieve significant blockages in her heart. He coordinated with her other specialists (nephrologist (stage 4 kidney disease), oncologist and her general practitioner to ensure the procedure was done with minimal disruption to her other issues. Two weeks after the procedure her labs are great and she feels a renewed energy. His knowledge and compassion are fantastic. Excellent doctor!
