Dr. Poochikian is extremely gifted and talented. I see him regularly for my aesthetic treatments and never leave disappointed! I have gotten so many compliments about my skin since starting the PRP micro needling; it has made a huge difference! And he always uses just the right amount of botox and fillers to leave me looking natural and not frozen. Wouldn't go to anybody else!

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.

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!

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.

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.
