Fruitland, ID |
Dr Asher appears very conceited and lacks compassion. He did a very poor job of explaining a medical procedure and did not answer my questions. He literally placed his face inches away from mine when pushed to answer my question. At best, Dr. Asher does not like to be challenged. He needs to retire.

Our appointment with Dr. Asher was great. Dr. Asher took his time to get to know my dad and was extremely helpful with how to treat my dad. I did call the office left a message regarding some follow ups/suggestions Dr. Asher has recommended, but a week and half later still no return call. I called and left a second message and two days later still no return call. We really like Dr. Asher, but I'm not sure about his staff.

I was unable to attend with my husband last week, so my daughter went in my place. Mind blowing! The once very polite and caring doctor was in a hurry and not interested at all in what had happened in the last three months. We had been seeing him since 2013 referred by Dr. Paul Ryan. Not sure we will be back to see him in the future now. no longer have any trust in a doctor who was late for your appointment and who was in a hurry to get out of the office call itself.
