    I have been an adult patient of Dr. Ascherman for more than ten years. He is a thoughtful, careful listener as well as a caring and compassionate person and he has been honest, direct and clear when I have needed his specific advice. Based on my personal, non-expert opinion, Dr. Ascherman has an excellent balance of psychological and pharmacological expertise in the treatment of major depression. Because I also have a number of other physical diseases, I have been amazed at the range of knowledge he has of other areas of medicine in addition to psychiatry.

    I have been bringing my child here since August and all they continue so is test her...not giving me any answers...when checking her pt portal the only things listed are her medications, however, they are incorrect. I still do not have a plan of care for her and she continues to be having the same issues.

    Probably gets too personal when he should let the medication do the work.
