Patient Comments (12)
Just wanted to remind Dr Askari of this... THIS REALLY HAPPENED TO ME!!! I had a robotic hysterectomy performed by dr Askari. He punctured my abdomen,pancreas, and intestines. Sent me home in serious pain saying everything went well. Luckily my husband noticed me not doing well and took me back to hospital. My husband was unable to get a hold of dr. Askari until he got back from vacation over weekend. I was on life support for 3 weeks and almost died. Please be cautious before using this dr

I was a patient of Dr. Askari's in 2014 in Las Vegas. I had an ectopic pregnancy, and since I already only had one ovary and Fallopian tube, he drilled a small hole, took out the pregnancy, and saved my only tube, even though he said it didn't look like I would be able to conceive naturally. Thank God he did because my husband and I successfully conceived a baby, and now she is almost 10 months old. My husband and I owe him so much for saving my tube, as our daughter is everything to us.

If you want a doctor who cares go see Dr Askari. He takes the time to speak with you , and explain everything in an understanding way. It was just what I needed after seeing my primary care and having long time pain. He performed a Robotic laparoscopy and found endometriosis. I went home the same day and now 3 montha later I'm still pain free. I really think he is a warm caring honest doctor amen would not hesitate recommending him to anyone who needs a great doctor.

Normally I don't write reviews, however, I would like to take the time to share my most sincere appreciation for Dr. Askari and his level of professionalism. Unlike most doctors, Dr. Askari truly cares about his patients and treats them as a human being instead of a body with symptoms. His personality relaxes you and gives you a sense of tranquility, while at the same time keeping his level of professionalism, giving you a sense of reliability, safeness, and trust. Thank you Dr. Askari!

Dr, Askari is the truly the utmost professional. Very knowledgeable and experienced, but also kind and compassionate. He listed to my my concerns, outlined treatment options along with their pros and cons. He explained everything to me in terms I could understand. His post-op care was exceptional. I am extremely happy that I chose him as my physician. Thank you so much Dr. Askari!

I had a complete robotic single incision hysterectomy and its been a little over 3 weeks post surgery and I feel great. I've had endometriosis for about 20 years which has made me feel sick, constant pain, sore, always something, and believe it or not I can finally say I feel great I wish I would have done this sooner. Dr. Askari was very kind and and thorough with what he was going to do before the surgery and his staff was amazing! I just want to say thank you and I highly recommend him,
