She was my first doctor in calgary after moving from Edmonton,worse is when she gave wrong diagnoses for my kid,it was about my daughter who had wrong diagnoses in emergency saying she has heart condition and we should consult with family doctor,as terrified I was in went to my family doctor Dr asher, she not only confirmed it but sent my kid for cardiovascular ultra sound and other tests...which all came saying she is Okey,nothing wrong with her...her heart rate was normal for her age...a family doctor should know that kids younger then 5 years have higher heart rate....she didn't I guess...then i got pregnant and asked to be sent to South health campus...she said they aren't accepting low risk patients,and she decided to send to referral to low risk which I specifically asked not to send referral too... low risk kept calling...to I went in again to clinic and had chat with her and told her again I don't want to be at that place send my referral to foothills......a month past and I get call from clinic saying why I have told them where they have to sent my referral to?amazing right...I have previous miscarriage so I was worried as ****counting days and weeks,changed my doctor and got referral to South health campus approved in 1 week...she sent such a bad history about patients that I had to wait 1.5 year to see a ENT specialist...don't go to her...she will either misdiagnosed or sent you home saying,sending referral to specialist....for that specialists call u wait for weeks...when finally call comes in...it would be 6 months away...untill then wait with wrong diagnoses that ur kids has heart condition....

This doctor has got to be one of the worst I've ever visited. She is always running late, very unhelpful when answering questions, and in general doesn't seem to know her stuff. My family has had multiple issues with her; varying from minor to serious. Really would not recommend this doctor.

I have an 88 year old mother who moved from Ontario. She waited for 3 hours to see her previous doctor. Dr. Asher never makes her wait for more than 10 minutes and the building is easy to access. She is very knowledgeable about elder care and treats her with the utmost respect. I can also call her on the phone to discuss issues regarding my mother. It is so nice of her to do that as it is very a hardship for my mother to physically go to the doctor. Dr. Asher always asks after my mother who is in assisted living no matter who from my family is seeing her. It is so comforting to be able to talk to her openly about my mom and know she has worked with the elderly. After each episode that my mother has ended up in the hospital, Dr. Asher will explain all the tests and procedures that she is having. I do not know any of the hospital doctors and they change daily. I trust Dr. Asher and the information she has provided me has been priceless during moments of extreme stress. I am a very good judge of character and I just do not understand some of these negative comments. They must be coming from patients who are abusing the system. I think it is unhappy troubled people who make the most outrageous comments and those of us who are totally satisfied don't think to take the time to sit down and write it out. I appreciate you so much Dr. Asher. Thanks for keeping care of my mom and our whole family.........

Dr. Asher is amazing. My husband would never go to the doctor because our previous doctor dismissed him without listening. I found Dr. Asher and she has been amazing. My husband who now has be diagnosed with several health issues calls her whenever he feels unwell. She treats all our family with respect, caring and provides us with excellent care. She will refer to a specialist when needed and provides us with a yearly wellness plan that keeps us on track. She always asks about our family and my elderly mother. I cannot express how much difference she has made in our life. I now have a husband who is being looked after medically because of her excellent care. He enjoys going to see her and has a special relationship with her filled with respect and admiration. She makes me accountable for my own health as I tend to put things off. She is an excellent doctor and we have had many. Perfection , grace, humour and compassion describes her along with her excellent skills. If you are reading this Dr. Asher, Randall and Leslie are very grateful for your care. Our rating 10/10

We moved to Calgary 5 years ago and Dr Ayesha has been our family doctor from the get go. I have 2 girls, 10 and 7 year old. Whenever I take them she listens to them first and treats them with respect. If its something preventable she advises us of that as well. I needed a referral recently and I got one. Her staff are very professional and approachable. My mum had come to Calgary from India over the summer and she is very pleased with the Dr's approach and the medicine she prescribed was very effective as well.

Thank goodness Dr Asher is not my regular GP. I took my daughter to WellPoint as a walk in patient, and she was the doctor available rather than our family doctor. I can't speak too much to punctuality; we did wait for an hour, but we were walk ins. When she did finally make it to the room, her bedside manner was atrocious. She made me feel guilty for what my daughter has come down with, and even commented as to how "rare it is for a child to have this condition in Calgary" and commented on caring better for my daughter. As confirmed by other reputable sources as well as a 2nd opinion, its not uncommon (but even if it was, is that the best way to handle the situation?!). The guilt trip was frustrating and unnecessary. After much convincing through mostly deaf ears that she may need follow up medication, Dr Asher finally wrote up her prescription...but when we brought it in, the pharmacist was surprised that she did write up for it, as the meds she prescribed are not easily available in Calgary, was wrong for the condition my daughter had, and was totally the incorrect dosage. Thank goodness for the other doctors at WellPoint who are significantly more qualified. Next time we have to walk-in, we'll wait longer if it means avoiding Dr Asher.

After my daughter had a particularly bad experience with this doctor, I came here and was horrified to read the poor reviews that backed up my daughter's experience. And to read below that this doctor has asked her patients to write in good reviews because she's had bad ones? Listen to your patients, treat them with respect, and then deal with their problems with professionalism ... THAT will bring in better reviews.
