Wonderful!

So, I saw Dr. Askari as a follow up to an ER visit for my kidney stones. His staff got me into visit him the next day! He was very interested in getting to the bottom of why I had kidney stones. He had me follow up with him and was determined in finding out what was going on. About 3 months after my first incident with kidney stones, I was feeling sick and paged him. He quickly called me and asked me about my symptoms. He told me to go to the ER and called the ER to tell them to take me in and told them the tests to run, I barely waited in the ER. Yup, kidney stones again! He promptly followed up with me and kept up with trying to get to the bottom of my frequent kidney stones.Unfortunately, I'm just one of those people that is prone to stones (my whole family is), but he was very compassionate and understanding during my whole ordeal. I really appreciated the attention he gave me, he was caring and understood my discomfort.The only reason why I don't go to him is because I moved out of the state:( Great doctor!
