Ratings for Dr. Jeffrey A. Ascherman
I was referred to Dr. Ascherman by several of his colleagues, including my husband who is also a surgeon, and I am glad that I scheduled a consultation with him. That was more than 10 years ago. Since then I have had several procedures performed by Dr. A. including face lift, scar revisions, and breast reconstruction following a lumpectomy. Let me begin by praising his staff. Every time I came in for an appointment they made me feel comfortable and at ease. They are courteous, professional and work well together as a team anticipating anything that Dr. A. may need. As to Dr. Ascherman, where do I begin? He is a remarkable person, nonjudgemental and very understanding. His bedside manner is incredible. He took time to answer all of my questions and address all of my concerns. He spoke to me in a language that I could clearly understand about every aspect of the procedure This always made me feel comfortable. He made sure that all of my requests were respected. He has a very light touch and the procedures he performed were without any unnecessary discomfort. Follow ups were always a breeze. The results were beyond my expectations. I am glad that Dr. A. was recommended to me and even more so that I chose to have my treatments by him. It is without hesitation or doubt that I would recommend Dr. A. for any plastic surgery procedure. In the future should I need another procedure there is no doubt in my mind who I will consult.
He performed my breast reduction and it changed my life. They look amazing and I feel so much better. I went from a J to a B/C cup and I feel like a whole new person. I couldn't be happier, the results turned out better than I imagined they ever could have been.
I feel exceedingly fortunate to be a patient of Dr. Ascherman. He recently performed an operation to correct a cranial defect. The outcome was highly successful, both medically and appearance-wise. It makes all the difference to me, to my peace of mind, to know that Dr. Ascherman is here should I ever need any surgeries in the future.
It has been well over ten years since I started going through the large glass turn style doors located at Columbia to visit Dr. Ascherman. It all started when my girlfriend put her finger on a deep wrinkle that existed right between my eyes. "What's that?" she asked. She then introduced me to an amazing plastic surgery department. Dr. Ascherman who heads up that department is not only talented but has an artistic flair that no matter what the procedure, he can enhance your looks and still have the procedure being subtle. It was evident that any anticipation or worries that existed years ago, soon departed. It has become second nature to me now. I give myself one hour every three to four months for that special visit that makes me look healthy and young. I feel great and look even better! Thank you Dr. Ascherman. SF
Shortly after 2000 I became a caregiver for my parents and husband. As a result, I gained 40 pounds. Because of this I did not want to go to social events, and clothes did not fit. I realized that something needed to be done. Diet and exercise were not working and motivation was difficult to maintain. After receiving clearance from my cardiologist, the next day I phoned Dr. Ascherman's office for an appointment. He did not make me feel like an old girl wanting to be young again. The surgery was remarkably easy and my recover was swift. In addition, something wonderful happened after the surgery. Not only did the visible "tire" at my waist disappear, but my mental attitude changed. I felt so much better about myself. My outlook has changed! I go to my local YMCA three days per week for exercise classes. My gratitude for the quality of care I received from Dr. Ascherman is unlimited.
I had two elective surgical procedures performed by Dr. Ashcerman. The two previous consultations/ doctors did not match the quality in care and attention I received from Dr. Ascherman. Surgically, he proved to be top notch. I'm happy with the results and the overall experience. I highly recommend Dr. Ascherman for breast augmentation and and mini tummy tuck. Postsurgically happy, M. L.
Dr. Ascherman and his entire staff were a tremendous comfort during a very trying year of trying to find a team to resolve a open cavity in my 84 year old mother's head. Having had two surgeries prior to Dr. Ascherman's successful solution and surgery, my mother was so distraught. Dr. Ascherman was patient, knowledgeable, confident and commited to getting her better so she may live without worry. Not an easy task, and we actually had several doctors who would not attempt surgery. Not only did he assure us that this muscle flap surgery, moving a muscle from her back internally to the cavity in her head, was the best solution but that he had alternative options if, during surgery, this muscle difficult to move. We are indebted - truly - with my mother's life and her quality of living to the doctor and his staff.
Breast reconstruction following double prophylactic mastectomy. Dr. Ascherman is a pleasant, caring and a very skilled surgeon. He will take as much time as needed to explain your medical condition and you will understand everything when he finishes explaining it to you. If I were in the same position again, Dr. Ascherman is the one I would want to care for me. I am extremely happy with him and I highly recommend him!
