Patient Comments (5)
Bergenfield, NJ |
Very thorough, very comforting, listens to every detail and treats you accordingly.
in Little Falls, NJ |
Although he seems quite smart, it doesn't translate well to treatment. He tried to treat my condition despite having no experience with it. He told me to stop taking a drug he had not prescribed but didn't tell me how to stop taking it. He prescribed a new drug that had a major side effect of diarrhea after knowing that is already a major issue of mine. I would not recommend him.

I have been seeing Dr. Asta for many years for severe headaches. He is the most caring and compassionate doctor that I have ever been to. He is open to adding alternative therapies along with medications to treat symptoms as disabling as headaches. I am a nurse and have worked with doctors for over 20 years. He is knowledgeable and caring...hard to find in today's healthcare market.

very positive.easy to relate to on a human level. Took time to listen and is very upt to date in his knowledge of myasthenia gravis and other diseases
I was a patient of Dr. Asta's in 2011 and 2012. I suffered from partial seizures. It appears that Dr. Astra did not think my condition was serious enough to receive urgent and aggressive attention. However, it turns out that I had a brain tumor that was discovered by another doctor. He is a very professional and nice man, but I would strongly recommend seeing a physician other than Dr. Astra for seizures. For other neurological conditions, I cannot comment.
