Ratings for Dr. Ayesha Asher
Dr. Asher disregarded my symptoms and did not listen to my issues at all. She even disregarded a long history of thyroid issues in my family and the indicators on my blood test that I could be suffering from Hashimoto's. She had terrible bedside manner as well.
Our family has been going to Dr. Asher for 5 years, every time we would leave her office I would tell myself we need to find a new Dr. She has a horrible bedside manner, and would seem we couldn't get out of her office fast enough. My son had been wrongly diagnosed by her twice after going to a walk in clinic and having the proper tests ordered. We have since moved on to a new doctor but wanted to write this review to save anyone looking for a new family Dr to save your time and not see Dr. Asher.
The staff is who saves dr Asher. I left my bad experience with dr Asher on her already, but I just found out that when I was bawling in her office cuz my throat was covered in puss and had been for a few days and she simply could not care less, well I just learned that I could have walked next door and paid 10$ and had my throat swabbed on the spot and I would have got my results asap, instead Dr Asher made me wait 3 days for my results. Well a day after I saw Dr Asher my throat was so swollen that I ended up in the hospital because I was having troubles breathing and they said I was so dehydrated and my heart was beating at dangerous levels that they could not believe my doctor wouldn’t have given me anything for pain relief. If you are looking for a new Doctor please do not bring your family to this Dr, she was equally as unsympathetic with my son when he was 6 months old.
If I ever need to see a walk in dr I pray it isn't dr Asher. Dr Asher rushes appointments, has zero simpathy for the patient. My spouse and I have had horrible experiences with her. One time, when I was 6 months pregnant, she was so unsympathetic that I was extremely sick, and pretty much said there's nothing she can do. She said it in the rudest, most cold hearted way. This last time I explained to her I have had a high fever, and sore throat (felt like I was swollowing razor blades) for the past three days, I went in with all the energy I had and she said I have to wait three more days before my strep throat results came back.. And she sent me to get blood work done. Fair enough that she cannot start me on meds, but I have puss all over the back of my throat, and I'm clearly upset. She advised I take Advil, I told her I was allergic and she kinda grinned and said there was nothing else she could do. I actually started to tear up in my car because I am in so much pain and the doctor just treated me so poorly. I love dr fleetcoft orelse I would stop coming to this location. My sister and nieces were her paients of dr Asher's and she was also awful to them so they switched doctors, and two of my other friends have switched as well.
I have seen Doctor Asher twice now and both time she i was extremely disappointed. The first time was for my 5 month old baby who had formed a rash all over her body and a fever. She simply told me that she had a cold and go get her a SLURPEE?!? This last time I saw her I had severe pain in my ear and when she saw me she maybe took 10 seconds woth me, briefly looked in my ear and said I had an ear infection. Three days later I was in severe pain and had to go to emergency where the doctor said I did not in fact have an ear infection, my ear canal was extremely infected and because Dr. Asher had misdiagnosed it, the infection had spread to the back of my ear canal. Affecting my hearing. I was put on extremely strong antibiotics to help speed up the healing. I would NEVER recommend her. She takes zero time with her patients and her “medical” advice has so far been wrong.
Dr. Ayesha Asher has been my family doctor for 6 years now. She has been very accommodating when we request to see her and she does her best to squeeze us into her busy schedule. She always takes the time to listen to us and she genuinely cares about every member of my family. She tries to help us as best she could and she would refer us to specialists when she needs too. I would strongly recommend Dr. Asher to anyone looking for a great family doctor. Thanks, SA
Unfriendly, unhelpful, and sometimes downright rude. I saw Dr. Asher on Thursday before a long weekend with a very sore throat and told her my son had recently had strep. She took a swab and told me I needed to come back for a physical. She said I could phone in to get the swab results on Sunday from lab services, and see her on Tuesday for a script if positive. Next day I went to walk-in clinic, and the doctor said "Whoa, that's a nasty case of strep throat! Let's get you on antibiotics ASAP."
Dr Asher has now cancelled BOTH of my appointments the last two times I have booked stating "she needs to leave early" then says I can rebook another day. When your sick and need a dr them leaving all the time when you book same day or months out. This time less than 1.5 hours before my appointment is unacceptable.
