Dr. Ascunce is that rare combo—both very smart and empathic. I made this appointment because I was upset about evaluative comments concerning my hesrt condition from another cardiologist. Dr. Ascunce answered my questions clearly after getting more information and reassured me based on the facts. I trust her knowledge and advice.
