Dr. Ascunce is very compassionate about her patients. It’s very hard this day to find a Dr like Dr. Ascunce who will listen to her patients and do everything she can to get to the diagnosis. Besides that Dr. Ascunce always returns my phone calls and answers my questions in a timely manner with guidance, which is amazing. During this time of the pandemic she did a video call with me for a follow-up. She took her time with me and was very concerned about by well being. She was very thorough and advised me what my next steps would be. Dr. Ascunce makes you feel like you’re her only patient!
