Patient reviews for Dr. Anita Wasan
Dr. Wasan has a great disposition and was able to pin point my allergies unlike my previous doctor. She took the time to answer all of my questions and made me feel very at ease. I will definitely be going back to her.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. Great doctor
Very professional and helpful. Explained and simplified everything to me (English is my second language)
Dr. Wasan was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. She went out of her way to give me several recommendations for doctors completely unrelated to my allergy issues. I was a bit nervous booking via zocdoc with a doctor I’d never seen before, but left feeling well taken care of and pleasantly surprised. I will be going back in several weeks from now and highly recommend Dr Wasan.
Dr was an was great. Very informative
Dr .Wasan is very knowledgeable, she focuses on the details to find the cause of cough.
Dr. Watson was extremely knowledgeable, and thoroughly answered all of my questions. She made me feel comfortable, and at ease with any concerns that I had.
My son was seen right away and Dr. Wasan answered all my questions and set up a good plan going forward.
very nice staff, informative doctor
Daughter had a major allergic reaction. She was treated with kindness.
Very knowledgeable and professional
She is a great allergist
She was fantastic! The wait time was a little long for me and I believe there was a hold up of some kind but I didn’t really notice because I was doing their new patient forms (there were quite a few), which are different from the forms provided for check in by ZocDoc. They can be found on their website beforehand, I believe. Parking was super easy, it was around back of the main entrance. The doctor was great and her staff were super nice. The doctor explained everything to me and answered all my questions clearly. I’d definitely recommend her.
She is so sweet !!
Professional, thoughtful, courteous and good with my lil guy.
Dr Wasan took the time to listen to my concerns and had great suggestions for next steps. I appreciated that it was very easy to make an appointment and that she could see me right away as a new patient.
Dr Wasan is a great doctor and extremely approachable. She listens to everything you have to say and will help heal you completely. She ensures your primary physician is aware of your treatment.
Dr. Wasabi and her staff were extreamly reliable and nice. They provided me with superior services and was able to make life changing recommendations. I could not be more thankful and appreciative. The location was great and had parking available.
I really like her expertise and care.,
The staff is very friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable.
Dr. Wasan was wonderful. I have been dealing with eczema for a few years now, and Dr. Wasan helped me narrow down what the cause truly is instead of just recommending a steroid cream! She was very thorough, helped me when my rosacea on my face as well, and I look forward to seeing the results from what she recommended. I came to see her from the Alexandria area and even though it was a 30 min drive, it was totally worth it! Would definitely recommend her!
Amazing doctor! I've put on hold trying to find an allergist for my son because the last one totally scared the heck out of him. Based on the previous reviews, I took the chance to take him to Dr. Wasan and so glad I did. We drove to VA just to see her and we will come back to her. Very good bedside manner and good staff as well.
Dr Wasan took the time to gather a good history and was supportive of my choice to use natural methods for easing my symptoms. I felt she was knowledgeable and her staff was friendly as well. I would definitely recommend them for allergy care.
Very thorough appointment, which was great as I'm a new patient. Got the initial testing done and next steps. I felt like the doctor really listened and had good questions.
Dr. Wasan was very attentive, informed and helpful. I look forward to being her patient!
She provided expert advice
Dr Wasan thinks outside the box, and really listens to research you've done and tries to help in any way she can. She recommends specialists and is well connected to other doctors in the DMV area. You can't go wrong if you make an appointment with her!
Dr. Wassan is fantastic. I visited been to 3 other allergy specialists before relocating to the area. She explained everything to me and asked me if I had any questions. I recommend her to anyone in the area.
She’s friendly and easy to talk to
Thorough, professional, compassionate and listened to my needs. Went above and beyond expectations and her treatment method is very conservative yet affective
Allergic reaction - after ER visit
Dr. Wasan is wonderful! She was running about 5-10 minutes behind but she was very apologetic and listened to my concerns regarding my allergies. I explained to her my symptoms and that one of the allergy medications doesn't provide any relief or comfort and she gave me samples of another medicine.
I really liked her a lot. She is a good listener and explained clearly the steps I take in order to get better.
It was my first visit there and I was pleased with my visit with Dr Wasan! I was impressed with my visit and getting new information about possible asthma treatments. I am so excited about my new doctor.
I was slightly worried by the reviews being too good for Anita. She has a great bedside manner, her staff is personable and efficient. She seemed to really care and was the first doctor to take my weather induced headaches seriously. I would highly recommend her and will see her again.
Quick, great bedside manner, wonderful staff.
Dr. Wasan was very accommodating and kind. Seems to be incredibly knowledgeable about medicine in general!
Dr. Wasan is, by far, they best doctor I’ve encountered. Our only complaint is that we didn’t find Dr. Wasan sooner. She’s the best. I would strongly encourage any friend with allergies—especially pediatrics—to see Dr. Wasan. We found Dr. Wasan upon recommendation of a friend for treatment of our son’s food and seasonal allergies. She is conservative in her approach in terms of patient well-being, but aggressive in terms of treatment plan that works to improve the health of the patient. We have seen her at least once a month for a year and have found amazing success in her approach. Inside of a year she has completely changed my son’s life as she has opened up the opportunity for him to eat nearly any food—previously he was severely restricted and his previous doctor indicated that he just needed to just live without many things. Dr. Wasan is very friendly, takes time to understand the issue at hand and discusses treatment options, rationale and approach with you in a manner that feels like you’re talking to a friend. She is extremely well informed on the latest issues in her field and is very good with children. Our son has been known to sing a Dr. Anita song on the way to see her. We drive 30 minutes, past many other allergists to see Dr. Wasan. We have been into the office for various food challenges and tests more than a dozen times in the last year and each appointment starts on time and is well managed.
Dr Anita was extremely helpful and would definitely recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Wasan is knowledgeable and listens to her patients concerns.
I wanted to find an allergist for both myself and my daughter, and chose Dr. Wasan specifically because she also has a background in pediatrics. It was also really easy to book the appt online, and I was able to come in the very next day. I only made the appt for my daughter and was going to set a separate appt for myself, but they were very accommodating on the spot. Dr. Wasan saw us both at the same time, and answered all our questions. We needed a prescription filled along with some lab work, and we were able to get it all done in the same morning. The Quest Diagnostics and CVS nearest to their office were both very quick.
She was very friendly and explained things well. Her bedside manner was positive and practical.
Dr. Wasan is wonderful! She is very thorough and took the time to listen to my daughter's concerns. I would highly recommend her!
She's very nice and caring.
Dr. Wasan combines excellent medical knowledge with a genuine interest in each patient. I am grateful for her help with some tricky issues and highly recommended her for allergy and asthma care.
Wonderful doctor. She will listen to you and will work with you closely to find a solution. She will not hesitate to do more test if you still don't know the reason for the symptoms. She was doing skin test for allergies, patch test (that my dermatologist did not do), and food intolerance tests (that my ex GI doctor did not do). She will try to help you!
She caught my potential bronchitis before I was stuck with it for the 3rd time this year. I'm excited to see if she can get my allergies under control.
