Dr. Asad's office is always friendly and knowledgeable. He is encouraging, supportive in my goals and finding ways to enhance a better me. Not only would I recommend him to others, I referred my mother to him as well and she loves Dr. Asad and his office too!

Dr. Asad, I believe, saved my life. If it was for him and his concern and care, I am not sure how much longer I could have gone on. I was doing every thing in my power to make my health better to no avail. His advise and optimism gave me hope.
