Ratings for Dr. Miren D. Asumendi
I reached out to Dr. Asumendi when my alcohol/drug abuse caused me to hit rock-bottom despite completing a 90-day inpatient treatment program earlier this year. IN SHORT, DR ASUMENDI SAVED MY LIFE‼! Her compassion and ability to listen allowed me to be vulnerable to get past my anger and emotional insecurities to identify what triggers and motivates me to abuse substances. Through intense weekly therapy, she facilitated me to understand my mental, spiritual, and emotional needs for me to move through my past trauma to increase my chances of long-term recovery
Can't say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Asumendi. I've been seeing her on a regular basis for around 4 months for help managing symptoms of anxiety and depression. It was difficult to find a psychiatrist who does psychotherapy in addition medication management. It's even more difficult to find a doctor who's as personable and easy to talk with as Dr. Asumendi.
Dr. Asumendi has been my therapist and psychiatrist for years.

I'm really glad that I found her and that she is flexible with scheduling.
