Dr. Asfaw is a no nonsense physician who knows her stuff, gets to the point and answers any questions you ask and has a very respectful patient manner. I feel very fortunate to have found someone of her caliber. Three days after my visit I got a follow up call from her office alerting me that my lab tests uncovered an infection and an antibiotic was waiting for me to pick up at my pharmacy. That's impressive.

DR was abrupt and rude.She greeted me with "why are you seeing me and how did you ever get an appointment with me?" She then told me that I was too old and didn't need examinations any more.

Dr Asfaw is skilled, friendly, reassuring, gentle, and cheerful. I know the procedure she has to do is always inevitably painful, but I know I can trust her so, as with childbirth pain, one can forget it. The office is very well designed and comfortable. And the staff are nice.
