Comprehensive Assessment

Initial consultations allow for forty-five minutes to one hour with Dr. Asher.

All patients receive a customized treatment program that integrates traditional Western protocols and the most effective non-conventional therapies.

Since Dr. Asher has started treating me, my sinus troubles have dramatically improved and I am hopeful that they will vanish all together. My teachers, my audience and my own ears have noticed a wonderful change. If it were not for the MD sign at the door, you'd think he is a magician; he is a healer, that is for sure.
