Washington, DC |
Dr. Asher has been my ENT for the past decade. She has successfully treated me for several tonsil, throat and ear conditions. Most recently she reversed sudden hearing loss. She is an outstanding doctor and surgeon and is super smart. I highly recommend her. She takes time with her patients and is one of the best doctors I have met. Sometimes you have to wait a bit but it is because she spends time with her patients.

It's my good fortune to have been recently treated by Dr. Asher for an ear infection that was serious and excruciating. She saw me on short notice, understood the severity at once and was, within moments, working on my ear. Two days later, concerned about my progress, she arranged for care at a hospital - she personally delivered my cultures as I was being admitted. I'm so much better- progressing well. Dr. A was knowledgeable, straightforward, decisive, responsive, caring - and I am grateful.

Dr. Asher is a very competent ear, nose and throat doctor. She helped me with an ear problem right away that other doctors could not diagnose. I am going back to her whenever I have a problem!

I don't think the surgery Dr Asher recommended and performed for me was advisable and it left me with problems I didn't have before. I wish I had gotten a second opinion.
