Patient Comments (1)
in Scranton, PA |
After meeting Dr. Asante and talking with him, his evaluation diagnosed conditions that have been misdiagnosed and mistreated by one Dr. after another for 30 years. Now that Dr. Asante has evaluated and diagnosed me correctly, I'm FINALLY receiving the appropriate medications. My life has improved. Having names for what has plagued me for decades helps me to know I'm not literally losing my mind and it's not all in my head. I have real and treatable illnesses. Thanks Doc!!
