Dr. Asher performed a right L5 nerve decompression surgery on me May 5, 2021. My L5 nerve was severely compressed and causing pain down my right leg to my foot. I had seen Dr. Asher on 2 previous occasions and really liked his direct approach of telling me what he can do for my back, which is a very complicated spine, and what he can't do for my back. He is a patient and compassionate physician who I trust completely to perform surgery on my spine. I was up walking around within an hour of surgery with minimal pain and left the surgery center shortly afterwards. He called my wife shortly after surgery to tell her that all went well, which was greatly appreciated. I drove about 200 miles from Charleston, SC to have Dr. Asher perform my surgery and it was well worth the effort.

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.
