*Dr. Pascual seems to giving great thought & concentration when diagnosing & prescribing meds.

5/22/2017

never had a bad experience.

2/18/2017

Saw another Doctor and then my regular Doctor came in to consult. I had several concerns other than my normal concerns not pertaining to my pulmonary issues. Was not feeling well and had recently had eye surgery. They were very kind and cooperative.

2/16/2017

I always appreciate Dr. Pascual's attention to me and my needs. He is quick to respond to any emails I send with questions, update and concerns, usually within 1-3 hours/or he will have one of his staff call me. He always responds on the same day I send him emails.

1/31/2017

Dr. Pascual always provides excellent care. He makes me feel like I am a very important patient, he is apologetic when running behind and makes me feel that I can call him at any time with any concern, no matter how trivial. He is a wonderful Doctor!

12/21/2016

I am really please how I am being taken care of and I was so happy my last visit that Dr.Pascual said by my ultra sound the medicine I am on is working....I was so happy
