Dr. Asad changed my life in the best way possible. Before my first appointment with him I was confined to my recliner, worrying about how I would make my next trip to the bathroom. Under his care I lost 166 pounds, had bilateral knee replacements, and I have my life back.

Dr Asad and his team are always helpful. They are caring and my concern becomes their concern in making my goal a team effort.

very good & knowledgeable provider.

Dr Asad always takes the time to go through my medical chart with me at every visit- my medical history, social history, and family history. His staff always call me with my results the same day and he is always sure to go over everything in depth at my appointment. He has a wonderful bedside manner and is easy to talk to. I'm glad I chose Dr Asad for my surgeon and am thankful for his time and professionalism.

Dr. Asad and his team are excellent!

November 25, 2019

Dr. Asad always makes sure that he is there when I need help. I have been struggling with medical issues and he is the only one that seems to care. He and his staff have gone above and beyond making sure that I get referred to physicians that can actually help me. I have never felt more like a human being rather than a number at any doctor I have ever seen.

Excellent all around!

Everyone is very courteous and ready to chat if needed. They all say hello like I'm family and that is very important.
