Dr. Ash was very kind and super professional. I showed up about 45 minutes early to the doctor's office and was seen right after filling out my paper work. He seems very knowledgable and wasn't pushy about anything.

This was my first time seeing Dr. Ash and he’s absolutely fantastic. Patiently addressed ALL of my ailments, was thorough, made sure I understood why he was recommending specialists (something he doesn’t like to do unless necessary), and overall was just incredibly pleasant.

Probably one of the best visits to a PCP i've ever had. There was a glitch with the Zocdoc integration, so the office didn't see my appointment but they were able to take me that day anyway for an appointment 15after what I originally had scheduled. Dr. Ash was very nice, and took the time to listen to everything I discussed with him and spent time thoroughly explaining everything he was thinking/recommending.

An amazing doctor! I thought I had decent PCP's in the past until this appointment, where I quickly realized how assumptive my past doctors were about things that should have been addressed years ago. He knew the answers to all myconcerns and I felt he was empathetic and put his best efforts forward to ensure I was getting the best healthcare possible. It is great to have someone care about my health and health concerns as much as I do. Highly recommend!

Dr. Ash is the best doctor I have ever had. He is very knowledgeable and caring. He spends time to listen to his patients. I never got the “assembly line” feeling where some doctors half-listen to get you out of therein less than 10 mins. There were times when I was able to get an emergency appointment on the same day. Unfortunately, I moved to NY. I’ve been to the doctor here... And now I really miss Dr Ash!??
