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...more
