Team Asuncion


Melissa Asuncion, MD

“I have been treating patients in the long term care setting for over 10 years. The most rewarding and uplifting experiences for me are the interactions with the staff I have worked with and the families of the people I treat, and most importantly,the patients themselves. They  have shared with me their life experiences and their feelings and they have put their faith and confidence in me to take care of them. Continuing this path has been challenging, yet has enabled me to grow and mature as a physician and a person. My hope and goal is to be a focus of support and guidance in order to help my patients and caregivers and I look forward to working with the Bluestone family” -Dr. Asuncion
