Florence, SD |
He is brilliant, he's polite, he explained my surgery and answered my questions. His staff is wonderful. I feel like for the first time in many years that Ive found the right doctor. When I left my first appt with Dr Asfora as being a previous spinal fusion patient of a different hosp in their area ( it was horrible before not even being able to get treatment), I feel like I struck gold and that my whole medical experience is gonna change for the better having met Dr Asfora. Thank you Sanford
