Dr Asuncion is one of the best doctors I have seen, typically as knowledgeable or more so than the specialists I am sometimes referred to. She stays up to date with current trends and shows a genuine interest in my health and how I prefer to take care of it. She is someone who I have recommended often, and no one I know has ever had anything more than praise for her.

I realize Dr's have a huge patient load, and Dr A handles the "easier fix" problems well. It's just the female issues are not "investigated" as well as I would hope. For years I had the exact symptomology for Endometriosis.. but yet, it took an ovarian cyst surgery to "discover" it. I would like more natural/functional solutions to the hormonal/female issues rather than either...here is a synthetic drug or ... no... it is normal for this or that to occur..... Just a bit of frustration on that end... Otherwise.. for plain medical issues (dermatology/colds/infections/pains/physicals/immunizations) Facey has been phenomenal.

Facey group and physicians have always shown the greatest concern for their patients. I would highly recommend them. Would like to see more specialty doctors in the Santa Clarita area, like a dermatologist.

06/11/2019
My doctor was very good but I noticed since Providence has taken over this clinic the yearly exam time is shortened and we had to talk very fast. All care needed was provided but I felt rushed. I chose this clinic/doctor based on my first experience of being listened to and given time. Even though that was given again I had to speak fast and am lucky I am someone who makes a list of questions before coming but even with that it was rushed. Providence & Peace Health systems have fashioned themselves around this kind of care not giving the doctor consideration of proper time to be with a patient and I commend the doctors for their efforts but you companies are not fair to the doctors, in my opinion, which makes this unfair to the patient. I am from Oregon and now in CA and have watched the changes over the years and am dismayed by it all. If I had known Providence was taking over Facey Medical Grp, I would not have gone there. I have absolutely no complaints about my doctor....she is very good as is the staff at the clinic.

06/11/2019
Even though I have to travel to visit Dr. Asuncion, I will continue to do it for as long as she is there! She is a wonderful, caring doctor who shows compassion and dedication to her patients. She is an asset to the Copperhill office.
