I had to wait for a long time. The office didn't get the forms that I filled up online. Zocdoc recommended me to do it online for a faster "sign in" and it was supposed to help but at the end,I don't know what happened. It just didn't work. The doctor was exactly what I was looking for. Gentle, respectful and very professional. I am coming back with confidence.

She was very awesome! Had a lot of knowledge about my diagnosis and was ably to come up with a treatment plan right away. Will definitely recommend her!

Since moving to DC I've been disappointed by most of my doctors. dr. Ayscue was one of the best doctors I've seen in awhile. Caring, down to earth (not fake creepy doctor nice), made me feel really comfortable despite an awkwardsubject, and didn't rush me. The reception and nurses were also all really nice. It was a pleasant experience overall!
