This is a fine physician who is very enthusiastic about treating patients. However sometimes I wonder if he is a bit overly enthusiastic. He once treated me for an STD when it was unnecessary…perhaps if the injection had not been so painful I would not have taken offense. Nevertheless, my main grievance is with scheduling. Perchance this is out of the doctor’s hands? I have been rescheduled 4 times with less than 24hours notice. This is very burdensome for me as I have a schedule that does not flex easily.

Out of 8 appts he has rescheduled 4 with less than 24 hours notice. If I were to do this, I would be charged a late cancel fee.

Although I wanted a female PCP, I feel confident in Dr Assaf's ability and knowledge,even though he's younger than I anticipated.

Dr. Assaf has been my doctor while he was at ucsd. Now he moved to Sharp and I'm trying to get my insurance transferred there. I want him to still be my doctor because he's very kind, and listened to me, even when I had a list of issues, he listened to everyone and each time i left I felt better than before.

An outstanding physician who will leave UCSD on 10/1/2006. What a loss.

I have had the worst time trying to find and keep at Doctor at UCSD Perlman center. Dr. Asaaf is my 4th PCP in 2 years. I really hope he sticks around (but I doubt it). They are all seem so overworked and underpaid. All the doctors I've had are good though it just takes a while to get in. Out of the four he has been the best doctor. He took the time to remove a suspicious mole for me in the office because the wait for a dermatology appt is ridiculous. I really appreciated that. He's very no nonsense and smart. I like him.

The doc is a hard worker on my behalf. He listens, and he does his homework. I couldn't be more pleased.

I've had a lot of medical problems, from a genetic disease that my dad and I share. We have spent my whole life looking for doctors that knew how to treat our disease. When we found Dr. Assaf we were finally able to stop looking. Our disease is so rare, that few people know about. Dr. Assaf didn't know about it, but he spent time researching it and learned all about it! He has been amazing. He makes sure that my dad and I have regular check-ups and screening tests to keep ahead of this disease. He is so caring and thoughtful, always making sure that we are feeling OK. He understands that we are always anxious to get the results of screening tests so he makes a point to call us at home when he gets the results (rather than waiting for weeks to find out!) He has cared so much more than any other promary physician I've met. I feel blessed to know him.
