I went for my annual visit this was my first time coming to this office. office staff was friendly but when Dr. Asfouri came in the room we when over what will happen in the visit he stated we do anexam we will also do an ultrasound and I stated fine well once the exam was over I was charged for ultrasound that he made seem like it was part of my exam. office staff should come into room and let patient know if any extra charges will take place. my biggest issue with this doctor is that all he wanted to focus on my weight and telling me how fat I was and that I need to watch what I eat. his approach was not friendly and I will not recommend this doctor at all.

Wow! What an incredible, patient, and caring doctor. I usually see women for these visits and was nervous about seeing a male doctor, it the second he started talking to me, I felt completely comfortable. Very patient. Very very patient and I didn’t feel as if I was rushed.

Dr. Asfouri made me feel really comfortable. I get extremely anxious about Dr.'s appointments. This one started out the same, but he made me feel at ease right away. The ladies at the front desk and nurse were extremely professional andcaring. The waiting room was perfectly lit and relaxing. I wasn't left waiting long and the exam was thorough. I will be back to see him.

Dr. Asfouri is incredible. I am always hesitant going to a new doctor, but he is by far the best one I have gone to. He actually talks with you and sees what you want and works with you. He giveshis advice but does not push it on to you and address all your concerns. So glad to have found him.

I had an IUD removal with the complication that the strings had disappeared. Dr. Asfouri was able to give me an ultrasound on-site to locate the IUD, administered enough numbing medicine that it wasn’t painful, and successfully located thestrings and removed it. He was very informative about what to expect and was very cautious. The staff is very friendly and they run on schedule.

I have never had an experience more worse than the one I had with Dr. Asfouri. The way he spoke to me was unprofessional and belittling, speaking to me as though I was a child. He also advised that the solutionto a number of my complaints was vigorous exercise. As a young woman who exercises 3-4 times a week, eats healthy and would be considered slim, I found this to be highly bogus advice and could not trust his recommendations moving forward. I will never be visiting this clinic or Dr. Asfouri again and would not recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Asfouri may be qualified but his bedside manner is dismal and he is jaded at best. I am 25 and he treated me as if that made me less than. Here are a few specific examples: During our initial appointmenthe asked if I had been drinking prior to discovering I was pregnant. I said no, I am sober. He asked me again reminding me that drinking is very bad for the fetus. I do not need to be profiled because of my age. During my second appointment I asked about my headaches, he said, "Did you read the pamphlets I gave you the first visit?" Let me assure you there were no pamphlets. In addition, I pay him a hefty price to hear his personal medical opinion- I could find any pamphlet online but hearing the information first hand from my doctor was important to me- what else do I pay him for? I do not need my concerns to be blown off. During the third appointment my husband was asking questions about finding out the gender- a common thing that expecting families like to know. Dr. Asourfori cracked his first smile I have seen in our three visits and said, "Young man, ultrasounds are not good for the baby, they are not a toy." This he repeated twice in different words despite our persistent questions until finally really baring his teeth and telling me finding out the gender is "very expensive" with a scoff. I do not need my socioeconomic status to be judged by my doctor. This particular visit was a whopping three minutes long. He listened to the baby's heartbeat, dismissed our questions, and breezed out of the room leaving us distrustful of his practice and still full of questions. I have since began treatment with a new OBGYN and the difference in care is night and day. Because this is my first child I require a doctor who cares enough about the women he is treating to be thorough and acknowledging. Highly do not recommend Dr. Asfouri. Maybe the good reviews are coming from women who are not 20-something but I pay the same money as these women and expect the same respect.

Dr. Asfouri is a wonderful physician. He listens and works to help improve my health. He does his own ultrasounds so there is no going to some other center to get this and then waiting for results. His staff is reallynice and efficient and the location is very convenient. I highly recommend him!!!

The main reason I went to see this doctor was because I had ready reviews that he was very thorough. From my experience, he is not. He was very quick to write off the problems I had been experiencing and mademe feel like they were not actually as serious as I felt they were. When I got nervous and began tearing up he straight up asked me why I was crying in a pretty frustrated voice. Since I was unsatisfied with how he approached the situation, I went for a 2nd opinion at another doctor. The doctor went through and told me everything that it could possibly be causing the issue. In the end it was something that needs to be removed. I will never go back to this doctor - I found my experience there unsettling.

I had high hopes based on other reviews, but was unimpressed after my visit. I was brought back right around the time of my appointment (I was one of the first patients of the day), then left in the room waitingfor the doctor for 20min. His bedside manner was not great - the way he spoke to me, it felt like he was judging me and assuming I was ignorant. Lastly, he delivers at a hospital in North Austin, which did not make sense to me given there is a hospital just down the street.
