I arrived quite early and the MA did his thing and got me into her room. I waited a bit for her and she apologized for her delay. I can see why she may have been late. When dealing with me (it was our first appointment) she took the time to discuss me, all of me and find out everything and also recommend her prognosis. Explained why certain medication would or would not work but ultimately left the decision up to me, which I great appreciate. I have yet to go back for the follow-up visit and when done, I will review again. Overall, my visit scores a high 3. On my way to a healthier me ;)

I would not recommend Dr. Assegued to others. Dr. Assegued does not seem to care much for her patients, appearing bothered when I asked her specific questions about my condition that she had not addressed. She is also not open to alternative treatments or solutions. Overall, I've had negative experiences with her.
