He takes the time to answer all your questions and has relieved my pain more than any other doctor I have seen in my three years of challenging health issues. For this, I will be forever grateful!
“Dr. Asad is the first neurologist to attack and stop these tremors. Dr. Asad and his staff is what I consider as miracles healers by knowing when and how to stop a problem that I have dealt since 2007.
