My mom found me this very knowledgable Doctor back in 1996. The reason why is because I passed out and and became very nauseous. So naturally I had blood tests done and it turned out my cholesterol level was high-397. At the time I was 18 years old. I am now 41 years old and Dr. Asghar has been there for me 100%, as my primary and hypertension Doctor. I would recommend Dr. Asghar to anyone that needs an attentive and caring physician. My last blood test came back and my cholesterol is 206. ??

If you are driving and get rear-ended you don’t hire the guy who hit you if he is a lawyer, do you? It seems her specialty is putting people on dialysis. I’d rather have a doctor who keeps my kidneys functioning on their own. Thank god for second opinions.
