Dr. Asad has an excellent bed side manner. He was very through in this initial session and gave me all the time I needed to explain my issues. He and his staff made me feel very comfortable every step of the way.

First time meeting with Dr. Asad was a very positive experience. I had to ask him a couple of questions a couple of times due to his accent or my hearing, not sure which, but he was willing to repeat or rephrase anything I didn't understand.

This was a little difficult to answer since it was my first visit with this doctor and related to one specific thing. But I did like the doctor, how personable he was and how well he explained things.
