I first was seeing Dr. Sahakian at age 12 and then Dr. Poochikian since about age 14 or 15 and I would not go to another doctor. He gets to know his patients because he cares about the well being of his patients. He explains everything in ways that I can understand. He is part of my family. He treated my mom, my eldest son and my husband. Great doctor and great staff.

Has spent time to listen carefully to my medical issues, and gave logical medical explaintstion and treatment. He has excelling bed side manner and clinical diagnostic skills, and offers compassionate treatment alternatives. Always satisfied with my visits.
in Bowie, MD |
Scheduling was easy.......There was plenty of on site parking.......The front desk made me feel welcome.......And Dr Poochikian made me feel like my health and well being was his priority!!! (You can't ask for much more than that, when you visit the doctor!!!)

My family has been seeing Dr. Poochikian for years. He is a wonderful doctor and takes a lot of care consideration and time on every appointment you have with him. I recently moved to virginia and I still go all the way back to Maryland to see Poochikian.

There really aren’t enough good things I can say about Dr. Poochikian’s practice. Dr. Poochikian has been my primary care physician for the past two years and throughout this time, I have received the best medical care I could have wished for. He has an incredible memory and I don’t have to remind him about any of my previous complaints; it’s actually the opposite: he is the one who asks about my past problems, that even I can hardly remember. I would definitely recommend this practice to all!

My favorite family doctor!
in Bethesda, MD |
Dr. Poochikian is a very knowledgeable, considerate, compassionate and a professional doctor. He patiently listens to my concerns and provides all the necessary information about my condition. He consistently informs me about the plan of care and follows-up as needed. His office staff also is very courteous and helpful. I'm very lucky having Dr. Poochikian as my primary physician and would highly recommend him to anyone.
in Hyattsville, MD |
my experience was awesome ,the staff was very helpful and the Doctor never made us feel like he was rushing us he took his time to make sure all of our questions were answered
in North Potomac, MD |
He is our family doctor.
Dr. Poochikian is a true family doctor. He is very easy to talk to and his experience and vast knowledge keep me very much at easy every time I visit his office. I wish more doctors adopted the same approach that Dr. Poochikian takes. The wait time is very short yet he takes time to talk about my problems and always makes me feel better, like a true doctor should.
in Chevy Chase, MD |
Dr. Poochikian is knowledgeable, attentive and very compassionate. He listens and makes the right clinical judgements.
in Olney, MD |
I am seeing Dr. Poochkian again now that he offers limited office hours in Rockville. He is an excellent physician.
