Dr Ascunce had a lot of patience listening to my complaints, I am 87 years old. He explained things in a simple an easy way to understand. He did not rush and he provided an excellent attention.He is very caring and highly professional. I strongly recommend this doctor to my friends and family.

Dr Asunce was extremely focused and attentive when listening to my medical history. He went into great and understandable descriptions of the issues involved in digestive discomfort. He was extremely patient and empathetic to my distress. He began with a definitive plan of actions that gave me a lot of confidence and cause for hope. It is only one day since I have had my appointment, and I already feel much better and vastly relieved. Thank you Dr Asunce!

A visit to Dr. Ascunce’s office is like spending time with an old-fashioned doctor. The kind who used to make house calls, and sit with you over a cup of tea to really listen while you went through the litany of your ailments. He is thorough, asks all the right questions, and is not judgmental. He is just wonderful!

Very professional and has all the qualities of a great Doctor! My initial consultation with Dr. Ascunce was unexpected in that he made me feel comfortable and shared and answered all my anticipated questions about my colonoscopy.
