Patient Comments (2)
Modesto, CA |
If it were possible to leave 1/2 a star I would.Dr Ash has an unnecessarily busy office, due to blatant over-scheduling.He consistently requires patients to sit and wait,(over an hour for me post-op), his bedside manner during surgery was incredibly unprofessional. No explanation of what he was doing,it was far more important to converse with the anesthesiologist than tell the patient what to expect. He is running a surgical cattle-call. Avoid at all costs.Office staff is rude and unprofessional

I met Dr. Ash two years ago. First, when I needed to have cataract surgery done on both eyes. Dr. Ash has restored my vision not only once, but twice! The second time was 9 days ago when I had a blepharoplasty procedure done to improve my vision even more. Dr. Ash is the most amazing Doctor ever and does beautiful work! I have full faith and trust in Dr Ash. Thank you and God bless you Dr. Ash!
