Bahige Asaker

Does not listen to anybody who might have valuable input for his patient. He does not listen at all and does his own thing. He feels he is the doctor and has all the answers. He does not look at his patients charts thoroughly . He has had my mom on simvastatin for cholesterol for years .. She can barely walk now, I had to fight to get him to change her cholesterol. He is a QUACK. I am 65 years old and know enough to know that he is totally mismanaging him.Unfortunately my mom , a VERY VERY young 90 is slowly getting bedridden because of her legs. Under his care she was in A-Fib and knew nothing of it until I insisted that she see a heart specialist who put her in the hospital immediatedly. Then weeks later she had to go back in the hospital for a BLOOD transfusion and three bags of Does not listen to anybody who might have valuable input for his patient.

FORGET ABOUT HIM

He rushed in and then asked me a few questions. He never took his stethoscope off his neck. He wrote me for labs and ran out and would not answer any questions. I WOULDN'T SEND MOTHER-IN-LAW TO HIM... .

The WORST

I have seen him 5 times and that is enough for me. While he seems to be pleasant enough at first he doesnt like too many questions about side effects of medication especially if you have them. Not too knowledgeable about medications (thought hydrocodone 7.5 was percocet). Far too concerned about time. I clocked him for one appointment at 4 minutes, not kiddingI timed it. Has never taken my blood pressure even after I told him my Rheumatologist put me on high BP meds. I also have vitamin B-12 deficiency and he ignored that. On one appointment I asked about seeing a pain specialist and he told me he knew of no one in the area. 2 months later I asked him again after a referral from my Rheumatologist and he gave me the names of 3 in the area. Seems to be afraid to deal with chronic pain patients in general. I have RA & Fibromyalgia & he said Pain Specialists or pain meds will not help you. I almost cried. Office staff is the WORST.
