Dr. R. Askari is very caring doctor. He makes sure that his patient is not in pain and in good condition ??
in Las Vegas, NV |
Reza Askari did a robotic hysterectomy on me in February of 2014. He ended up puncturing my abdomin , pancreas , and small intestines. He did not recognize what he had done and sent me home. Luckily my husband brought me back to hospital the same night. Which saved my life. He was nowhere to be found after surgery. Please beware of this surgeon.
