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 whenmy 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 andso 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 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 reliefor comfort and she gave me samples of another medicine.

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. Wasanupon 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.

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 comein 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.

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 forallergies, 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!

Dr. Wasan was very attentive, carefully listening to my past medical history, living style/environment, specifics to the symptoms, and spent a relatively longer time to converse for diagnosis. Had me tested with two breathing tests rightin the office. Explained the results right away, why she ordered what she ordered based on the results, and her initial diagnosis (what she suspects). Waiting time in between was minimal to none. Staff (administration and nurse) was welcoming and well accommodated my additional questions. It seemed things flow smoothly from registration to out for prescription.
