    Horrible!
    New York, NY |
    I visited Dr. Ast several years ago and attended physical therapy in his office. I felt better after this treatment. He did not try to prescribe strong and addictive medications, as many other doctors do. Also Dr. Ast seems to look through medical news, learns about scientific research and knows about medications' side effects. Also one of physical therapists in his office was really good. Now I am thinking to go to Dr. Ast again and looked on this site his info.

    Frequently forgot to order medication I needed for infusions in time, delaying appointments, forgot to ask me to get new referrals for my medication until 1 day before infusion date, frequently blamed me for clerical errors until I presented him with evidence of his own offices errors.
