      Great surgeon!!! I was dealing with back pain for our two years. I asked a friend who is a cardiologist who he would recommend. First visit he was on the cause, that was overlooked. Set a plan into place had the surgery was at home the next day. It will be a year before I can do like I was before. Dr. Asher staff made everything run smooth, from setting appointments to insurance. Very professional office.

      He ruined my brain he did surgery on. I can no longer study, work, have sexual relations, have friends,concentrate, follow tv or a sermon, I latter found the surgery was unnecessary. I'd give him a zero star if they made one. In a nutshell, he ruined my life.

      Rating a physician is hard since part of the experience includes other things. But in regards to skill, Dr Asher is very good. He did my spinal fusion 11 years ago. He is not overly empathetic, difficult to connect with, always VERY behind in seeing patients (1-2 hours behind), may spend more time talking to an intern or attending PA than you, and sometimes rushes through visit. But his surgical hands are gifted and educated continuously. He is passionate and the surgery is personal to him.
