I’ve been suffering from migraines for years. I was nervous to leave my old neurologist and move to Boston because I’d have to start all over again with treatment. Dr. As Gina has put that anxiety to rest. He was very thorough and very concerned with my care. I’m excited to have him as my new neurologist.

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

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.
