      A patient s recommendation is the highest compliment. Thank you for your recommendations and for trusting your health and the health of your family or friends to our practice.

      in Urbana, IL |
      Dr. Askari performed a surgery on my daughter-in-law that ended up being life threatening. He was not competent or responsive. Nevada being a difficult state to pursue malpractice claims, made it impossible for my daughter-in-law. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. He doesn't use good judgement surgically or in post operative care. We are lucky that there was not a death as the result of his surgery complications. This case included fourteen days on full life support.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
