My allergist sent me to Dr Asi to receive approval for xolair for hives. I told what I needed and why. Instead he said he would try to get approval for asthma. I was declined and was charged over $500 for an office visit. Have tried to contact office but to no avail. Will not recommend this palce

Dr. Azi was very concerned and listened to my problems and listed a course of actions we would take to find what was causing my distress. He was confident we would find my problem, which we did. We were very impressed, he came up with these actions immediately, was caring, and followed through. Everything in his office is very professional and his staff is very friendly.
