Abid – Feb 02, 2020
Dr Asif performed emergency surgery on me. My family was told that this should be done as soon as possible. The surgery was done, the clot was extracted. I am not experiencing any residual effects of a stroke that others have whose clots were not removed in an urgent manner. Dr Asif's skills were surely the reason I'm doing as well. My family, friends and I were certainly impressed with my results. His professionalism, and personal interest shone through. Presence Health would certainly benefit with more doctors like him on their team.

Susan Szczender – Aug 22, 2018
I was experiencing speech and general awareness difficulty and was brought to ER. Dr. Asif was called, and promptly ordered testing which located a blood clot in an artery in the brain. He then proceeded to perform a removal of the clot by angiography, opening the previously closed artery to a normal flow of blood, and eliminating all prior frightening symptoms completely. Myself and my children will be forever grateful to have been blessed with the skill of this exceptionally capable physician.

Dr. Asif saved my mother's life. My mom had an aneurysm that popped. He was able to thoroughly advise me and my family of what is going to happen. He is a young doctor but has great confidence. Absolute aces in my book!

Dr. Asif is great!! He rearranged his schedule for two days & gave my husband the excellent care he needed.. Dr. has always taken time to explain everything with us, show us the scans, & address any concerns we had. We are so thankful he was consulted. His staff is just as amazing. Cheryl NP and Deb MA were very helpful, in the hospital & office. They always took time to talk with us about anything we were concerned about & never made us feel rushed. The whole team is fantastic.

I had a stroke in November while I was 4 months pregnant. Dr. Asif and his team saved my life. I had brain surgery due to a colt he took care of it right away and continued to check on me the whole time and did what was in my best interest. He goes above and beyond for his patients and I continue to see him for my follow-up. I am blessed to be alive and my baby is healthy and it all because Dr. Asif. If you have symptoms of a stroke I recommend Dr. Asif and his team that are amazing.

The procedure performed by Dr Asif went remarkably well with continuing great results. Dr Asif is a kind, attentive and talented physician. When I was unable to get help with a serious medical issue from other physician's staff, his nurse Kim helped tremendously and I am grateful for the direction she gave. All around great office and staff.

Dr. Asif has performed the coil method of cerebral aneurysm over 200 times, and always successfully. I am glad he accepted me as a patient, even though I am 75 years old, because I am otherwise in very good health and have recovered well from the procedure. He was completely in compliance with my wish to have a pre-procedure endoscopy and colonoscopy to check the overall condition of my GI system, since I expected to be taking the higher dose of aspirin for a few months post-procedure.
