      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.

      Would highly recommend to all my friends!!!
      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
