I had seen Dr. Flores but she moved back to her hometown so I saw Dr. Ashina. He explained that he wasn't allowed to prescribe me meds without seeing me, so that made sense. I had to wait about 20 minutes but in the scheme of things, it was more than worth it. He figured out my nummular headache (different from my usual migraine) and was able to give me a nerve block that got rid of it. He explained that sometimes it takes a few days to kick in, and he was right. Yes, he dictated his notes while I was there but at least I could hear his diagnosis and description at the time and not read something later and wonder. I don't think patient claims is accusatory. I once had a doctor write that something I had was remarkable. I found out that's medical speak for worthy of being remarked about. I have had only good experiences at this clinic and will definitely keep going to see Dr. Ashina.

Dr. Ashina did not treat me as if I was in the room. He made me feel extremely uncomfortable talking into his dictaphone after he asked each question stating " the patient claims.." The office was in charge of getting approval from my insurance to get an MRI. I scheduled the appointment with Shields for a month later. Shield contacted me two days before and told me they never got the approval so they canceled the MRI. After many attempts to contact the office and speaking to at least 2 people to get the approval, I finally came to my senses and left the practice two months after my initial visit. Do not go to this practice unless you like feeling invisible and do not want help with your pain.

The staff is not at all friendly. They do not listen and certainly do not try to accommodate the needs of the patient. 4 phone calls to get a prescription refilled and was told it would be and then one more phone call to tell me it would not be. Vey poor operation

Dr Ashina is a great doctor if you like someone who never listens to you, scolds you for your medical problems, and in fact literally can’t remember your name or chief complaint. This guy is an incompetent jagoff. I beg you to see someone who will even pretend to give a toss about you.

Obviously he’s only about his wallet. Waited well over a month for my appointment. Severe accident with a truck overturned with the roof ripped off on Storrow Drive with exits closed was going to cause me to be 20minutes late. Going over their “15minute window”. Was told to reschedule and wait another month. This is my opinion really shows his “CARE” of his patients. So No thank you, I’ll find a better migraine clinic

This Dr’s primary focus is on scheduling repeat appointments. Patient care is completely secondary. Will not go again and do not recommend
