Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Askari is the sweetest man. I am 18 years old and was very nervous about this appointment, especially because I went alone. Dr. Askari made me feel so comfortable and safe. His staff was also very sweet, especially his nurse assistant Kelly. I definitely recommend Dr. Askari!
Everything was great except that the paperwork I filled out with my medications wasn't printed out so the Dr didn't have my info and I had to repeat everything. Other than that, great doctor and staff.
