Fantastic doctor based on his skills and compassion. None better!
in Potomac, MD |
Doctor Vassallo is extremely compassionate, an expert in cardiology and he makes an appointment with him enjoyable. He responds to your phone calls within 20 minutes. He is the very best in his field. I highly recommend Doctor Vassallo. B. Gubinsky
in Washington, DC |
I feel this physician is quickly dismissive when I ask questions, is curt, and is set in his ways. That's been my experience when going to see him for tests with subsequent follow-up appointments. I'm not sure who wrote all the five star reviews and five star service has NOT been my experience. My experience is not a two way relationship between doctor and patient. I feel it's rather one-sided. I surmise there may be better listeners in the practice or in the Barlow Building, in general.
