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.

I recently had a stroke, and was seeing Dr. Asif for a follow-up visit. He explained the test results in a manner that I understood. I asked questions and he answered them to my satisfaction. I did not feel rushed. He is very caring. He really listens and is reassuring.

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.

After my wife's 10th day in the hospital Dr. Asif took over her case & diagnosed the problem the same day. He's a superstar in my opinion!
