What People Say About Dr. Sait Ashina, MD
Thanks to his medical intervention, I was able to take two weeks with my husband and visit family, take short and long flights, change time zones, hike, and travel – all with no headache whatsoever. My traditional meds weren't aborting my migraine, and I went to Dr. Ashina. He not only tried a different approach that worked, he also recommended preventative measures when dealing with altitude. I'm grateful to him.
