Ratings for Dr. Fuad S. Ashkar
This is THE WORST PHYSICIAN ON THE PLANET. He misdiagnosed me and I now have a life-threatening disease. Because of this doctor, I have spent thousands of dollars out of my pocket in travel expenses and hotel lodging in order to resolve my LIFE-THREATENING disease. I HAVE CANCER. He failed to order follow-up testing which would have detected it nearly 2 yrs ago. This man is Incompetent.
I have been very happy with Dr Ashkar and his staff. I sought him for a second opinion on a thyroid problem after having been told by another md that I should have my thyroid removed. After some tests and a sonogram, both Dr. Ashkar and the associate who works with him was of the opinion that surgery was not necessary at all. (thank goodness!). I felt he took the time to go over everything with me and answered my questions. I would recommend him to my friends.
I did not know that I was not having any contact with the doctor untill the 3rd appoit. as I could not tell if it was a female or male name. You will only have contact with his assistents (what a easy sweet way of getting patients' money without even talking to them!). I was told that to solve my weight problem I should just eat egg whites and low sodium low fat turkey breast ham and water for all meals of day and for the rest of my life. When I told to the assistent that this did not look a balanced meal, she called the doctor who told me for me that "this is life" and to do not come back. He misdiagnosed my blood results which was Insuline resistent and fatty liver problems.
