All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I needed clearance for surgery and was referred to Dr. Aasar. A few weeks wait, but certainly worth it. He was thorough, patient, and informative. He really listened to and addressed all of my questions and concerns. I will definitely see Dr. Aasar for any future cardiac issues.

An excellent heart doctor and a wonderful human being--they do not come any better. When I first saw Dr. Assar he was deep into trying to figure out why I had such a weak pumping heart and even asked me-'why do you have such a weak heart?' I could not figure it out but Dr Assar did and he recommended just the right therapy to get my heart back to pumping strong again. Just a wonderful heart doctor and so very gracious in his ways. Dr. Assar helped save my life and I am forever indebted to him.

Dr. Aasar is has thorough as they come. He is professional and will do what needs to be done to get to the cause of problems. I have 100% confidence in his abilities and his ability to find solutions which I can rarely say about other doctors I see. We could use far more doctors like him.
