I can't say enough about Dr Astrow. He is a doctor's doctor. He treated my mother, and was so kind to her. When I was unfortunate and too was diagnosed there was no question of which MD I would use. It was a very tough time for me. I was scared, anxious and frightened. Through all my treatment Dr Astrow was calming, and was always accessible. He never was an alarmist and he always treats the patient and not the diagnosis and his care is so personalize!!
