Dr Asta is the only neurologist that I have seen who has asked the most comprehensive questions about my parkinson. he has worked with me on a treatment plan that is working and consistently explains the pros and cons of medications. he is very up to date on the side effects of medication. he is very encouraging as a matter of fact he will make sure you get access to the best medication. God will continue to bless him and his personal assistant Henna. Very please

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.

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.
