When I went to see Dr. Ashgar, I had little quality of life due to years of back pain. After surgeries, 6 months later, for the first time in years I have little to no pain. His compassion and bedside mannerism is superior!

I saw him for a 2nd opinion and he basically denied that I had any herniated discs or bone issues. He said I'd just have to deal with the pain until bone spurs develop. I have sincere received care from one of the top spine doctors.

I apologize if I appeared dismissive of your condition. My approach to care is extremely conservative, and invasive treatment is not recommended unless I feel confident that it will help you. I am glad you have since received the care you need.
