It was great, Dr. Ascunce was really knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and was able to give me a definitive plan for my health. She took the time to review everything with me and followed up with immediately after my testing was complete. Her office is also exceptionally well organized, from the nurses to the receptionist. I traveled from Florida to NYC just for an appointment with the best cardiologist, and that is exactly what I received. I would highly recommend her.

Excellent visit - very thorough, covered all my questions and reviewed the results of blood work that was done the week before. I much prefer in-person visits now that we can schedule them again. Planning the appointment months ahead is a challenge, particularly when I don't plan the rest of my life months ahead. Nonetheless it was worth the wait.

Thorough, Knowledgeable, Professional, Personable.
I highly recommend Dr. Ascunse. She thought about my odd symptoms and took a 360 approach to solving my heart mystery taking into consideration my health history and lifestyle. She was on time and she did not rush the meeting. She was fully present. I liked her personalized medicine approach. She quickly established her expertise in a warm manner and gained my confidence and trust because she listened and then proposed a very smart plan to gather the data needed to create my personalized heart plan. She answered my questions and described several scenarios. Brava! I had an excellent experience at Weill Cornell Cardiology with Dr. Ascunse and team. Thank you!

A Cardiologist w\ Heart, Expertise,Thoroughness
Dr. Ascunce is a terrific listener, takes a thorough history, utilizes all appropriate tests and tools, works well with other physicians, and provides the most comprehensive case notes to ensure continuity of care. After years of working with some very good cardiologists, she is a truly extraordinary cardiologist, and my confidence is such that I referred my wife to her.
