Patient Comments (1)
in Charlotte, NC |
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.
